The sun sleeps and so does the mask that I wear in the light to hide my face. The world doesn't know who I am. The moon rises up, and with it, the trembling fear that has frozen my blood. I wish I could sleep with the sun, let its rays be the warmth I have missed for so long. Even if its fire engulfs me, at least I'll be warm... The air is so cold that I can't breathe, my last leaves falling at my feet. Am I awake or dreaming? Should I open my eyes or tear off the lids? Words cover the ground over which I speak. Fog rolls in and I can't see what's standing right in front of me. I'm blind but I feel you... I'm not alone. I can't stop. Get out of my mind. These aren't the lines that are taking your life: I try to, but can't help you. These times I know I'm wrong and you're right again, you're right again. I know... I know I'm gone. They rape your mind in search of bad memories to keep you in line. You're right again, rest is a chore when your dreams become harder than life. We're so far apart now. If distance makes the heart grow fond, then why am I losing you? This time, I know you're wrong. I miss your heart and the body it's in, but I can't help but feel like I'm losing you. When I come home, I know you'll be gone.

    General CommentI think this song is about the author's spiraling addiction to heroin, which has caused him relationship troubles. The 'mask' which he wears and also the reference to fire refer to heroin. Shortly after the introduction, the singer describes his experience with a near fatal overdose. The song then goes on to entail the great pain that has emerged in his life as a result of his opiate use.

    General CommentFreaking love this song. I love the intro to the song because the hard music starts.
    I agree that this is about a failed relationship and that is most likely is about an overdose.
    "The air is so cold that I can't breathe, my last leaves falling at my feet.
    Am I awake or dreaming?
    Should I open my eyes or tear off the lids?
    Words cover the ground over which I speak.
    Fog rolls in and I can't see what's standing right in front of me."
    Signifies the overdose.
