One more fix just a little bit
of that heaven I found crawling in the sun
sitting, waiting, calling me
to indulge in this game that'll set me free.

Another wasted night and here I am again
promises remain just promises and I don't know why
A moment of weakness is a moment of clarity
I know what I want
Why fight the temptation when it's all you've got
when it's all I've ever known.

So I give in to the old ways of the past to start this off
Once again I drown myself, delivering from all I gained
Lies to myself won't seem to justify the means
I've got no time to listen to your good advice
I'm doin just fine, down on my own down here.

I know one day this dance will bring me to my knees,
it's only a matter of time before I fall again, but that's alright. It's the little things in life that always
mean the most to me anyway, so what if I go with a little piece of heaven to take the edge away.

Just like the living dead I walk around this place
it's not too bad here it really clouds over piece of mind I never had. Call it escape from reality, I call it lookin at the world with both eyes open wide to the truth

I wanna be found smilin when I die here
I wanna burn my eyes out on the sun
In heavens basement you're the one that killed me first
another endless night goes down

One more fix just a little bit
of that heaven I found crawlin in the sun
sittin, waitin, callin me to indulge in this game
that'll set me free, a moment of weakness is all
I've got and it's all I've ever known
another wasted night and here I am.

    General CommentI agree with Artus. My favorite Strung Out song: Lyrically and Musically.
    Nothing more to say.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are actually about Jim Cherry's drug addiction. Reminds me of my own shit.

    Love this part,
    "I wanna be found smilin when I die here
    I wanna burn my eyes out on the sun"
