The skin dragged on the floor that night
Your reasons and alibis
Lights off and a knock at the door
They’ve been watching
You don’t know but they are
Knock down the door
You don’t know but they are

Send the S.O.S.
Meet me at the bridge
Make sure you’re not followed
Our secrets can’t be kept

At the scene of the crime
Hear the victims and the echoes of
The stories they told
When they said ready set go
(let this book be read)
The bodies have been found
With a note the door
You can still hear their cries out

We climbed up the stairs
It wasn’t long until they found us
Keep quiet they’ll hear us
Now let’s keep our heads down
Take us by surprise
This pact that we made
We won’t go alive

The act of the story
These unjustified endings
Lead us to the front door

They’ve been watching
You don’t know but they are (coming)
Knock down the door
You don’t know but they are
But they are...

Send the S.O.S.
Meet me at the bridge
Make sure you’re not followed
Our secrets can’t be kept

This is our escape
Run for the structure
Five hundred feet above
(The end of our story)
The fastest way is down
We have no choice but to...

Clenching the ledge
As we balance on the edge
This is the act
The jump to save our lives
Water hits our skin
Fills our lungs
And we are done
We’ll hide forever in this river
As we drift away

    General Commentthis song is freakin awesome! i love it!!! i don't know what it means though...if i had to guess though i'd say its taking place in the future, and the government took over (not surprising) and the people against the government are taken away, and there is this couple, and they're against the government, so they're trying to run away, but in the end, they are cornered and they jump into a river and drown...but, at least they're free from the government...
