If I could find a way
To release the day
I would start the endless night
and burn out the light
You don't need to understand
You never need to know anything
If you hear just what they say
You'll fear its all the same

Lost in the catacombs
Some how I'm feelin' at home
Not far to go
Not far at all

I love to see you cry
I always crack a smile
I crowned
Face down
With the vultures
all around

Lost in the catacombs
Some how I'm feelin' at home
Not far to go
Not far at all

Never felt any distance
Never saw any signs
I never felt I was slipping
And now I'm out of time

I need to stop right now
I cannot fake this anymore
I need control right now
And get my face off the floor

Lost in the catacombs
Some how I'm feelin' at home
Not far to go
Not far at all

    General CommentThis is a great song but it is really brought to life by Matt's incredible voice and singing ability. My theory is that its about being in a tight spot in your life and needing to get out but having a difficult time doing so. I know that Matt tried a few hard drugs before Skeletons was recorded and I think he wrote this about the short lived drug phase that he needed to quit. I can totally relate to the lyrics since I've been in bad spots before too.

    General CommentThey were in all kinds of tight spots before they did Skeletons. One of them got divorced, one's house burned down, one's mom died (could have all been the same person, but I'm not sure).
