Comfort driving, over burdened
She’s still striving to hold together
(Old heaven) under pressures
Come pull to the womb
Foot to the floor
In all of my memories you were always running away

So cold and proud
So unashamed
You were always running away
Just inches from drip freezing
Don’t you worry
I don’t have it in me
To ever leave you

Save this, and swallow it down whole
Stop this headache, mumble in a chalk line
You're always saying "Save me, I'm a danger to myself"
And who's driving?
And all through this you deserve better
Drinking, becoming someone else
Someone who's soul will come to naught and vanish
Though I'm trying
I can't save you, you're a danger to yourself

Like you care
You just wish for an exit
Perfectionist, you falter
... got no mind to alter

Get up (x2)
Just get up
I’ll make it work

Like you care
You just wish for an exit
Perfectionist, you falter
... got no mind to alter

We’ll search the sky for answers (x2)

    General CommentExcellence. Excellence. I love this song. But I can't figure out what it means exactly, but it is very beautiful and poetic.

    General Commenttrue lyrics:

    comfort driving overburden
    he's still striving to hold together
    and motivate and de-pressurize
    compelled to run foot to the floor
    in all of my memories you were always running away
    so cold and proud
    so unashamed you were always running away
    just inches from dripfeeding
    'don't you worry, i don't have it in me to ever leave you'
    takes this and swallow it down whole
    and stop this heady mumbling and talk right
    you're always saying 'save me i'm a danger to myself
    who's driving us through this
    you deserve better'
    drinking becoming someone else
    someone who's all will come to naught and vanish
    you're not trying
    can't save you you're a danger to yourself
    like you care
    you just wish for an exit
    perfectionist you falter
    all guts no mind to alter
    get up and make it work......him search the sky for answers

    General CommentSounds like he's singing about someone who was once someone who was once so proud but now has fallen and is turning to drinking maybe? Dripfeeding maybe a metefore? Although could be saying your on the edge so sort it out and stop doing whatevers hurting you? I don't know. But I know it's an awesome song.
