On hollow ground I sit and wait, playing songs upon your graves and I hope that you can hear me cus you know that I have got a lot to say.

So you made all your mistakes, but you didn't die in vain. You know that I was taking notes and I assure you that I won't do the same things.

All my fathers dead and gone, all my mothers, brothers, and sisters tagged along. And they left me all alone with the rest of the lost souls in this world that made our home.

And what I'd really want to know is do we really have to go? Cus I don't think that I believe and I must admit that I'm pretty afraid to leave. So I call on you tonight, come up and tell me everything is going to be alright. I'll tell you what it's like to be alive, if you tell me what it felt like to die.

[If you tell me what it's like to die than I can tell you what it's like to be alive.] X 4

    General CommentThis song is about the fear of death.. and what lies beyond.

    Its also about being sad about are friends who have died, and how it sucks you cant talk to them after they are dead (because then maybe they could tell you what its like)
