You could kill me with kindness
Could you cure me from blindness
And if not, then help me medicate

It seems I caught cold when I was two years old
It won't seem to go away
For the first time in a long time
Feeling better today

Can you feel me now
I am stronger
I am no longer overcome
I am overjoyed

All the doubters surround me
And their whispers astound me
And I think I hear my name

So I call out from the bottle
In the sunny and the startled
But everything is still the same

Can you feel me now
I am stronger
I am no longer overcome
I am overjoyed

Don't bail out, abandon
Don't throw you hands in
The burning mistake
Is your constant companion

It's your last chance
It's your window
Don't fuck up you can't lose
And it's everything you need

Do you tear the bandage off
And you clear your throat and cough
If you can't move
Then just believe

Can you feel me now
I am stronger
I am no longer overcome
I am overjoyed

So bail out, abandon
Don't throw you hands in
The burning mistake
Is your constant companion

Can you feel me now
I am stronger
I am no longer overcome
I am overjoyed

    General Commentthis song's about overcoming an obstacle and becoming stronger because of it... not sure what the obstacle (the burning mistake) was though.. maybe drugs cause a lot of their songs are about that.

    General Commentfor some reason this song makes me think of the death of a really insufficient step-parent. almost like saying his/her death lifted a cloud from the speaker's life, yet at the same time the speaker has to rationalize his good feelings and support his widow(ed) parent
