Don't be alarmed, I feel we're falling back to ground.
Don't be afraid, i hear in every word they say.
That even if you don't look back, be sure to find out
Who was there and What they want and 10 more reasons.

Don't be alarmed, I feel we're falling back to ground.

Your face is light and cocaine white.
Your face is light and cocaine white...

Misleading at most, I'm supposed to imposter a new you.
And even if you're woken up, keep contact both at once
And I'm just learning
And I'm just learning...

Your face is white in spinning lights

Spinning lights, don't be scared
You have given so much more
Spinning lights, don't be scared
He has risen, pull me under

Don't stop talking to me, I haven't been listening
Don't stop talking to me, I haven't been listening
This operation's been abandoned once again...
This operation's been abandoned once again!

Cut me gently, cut me out of mind.
Cut me gently, cut me out...
Cut me gently, cut me out of mind.
Cut me gently, cut me out of mind.


Spinning lights, don't be scared
You have given so much more
Spinning lights, don't be scared
He has risen, pull me under

Don't stop talking to me, I haven't been listening
Don't stop talking to me, I haven't been listening
This operation's been abandoned once again...
This operation's been abandoned once again!

Cut me gently, cut me out...
Cut me gently, cut me out of mind...

    if you ever saw the movie. you'll understand what i'm saying. it's also said a lot of the album was based off that movie. clearly seen here.

    General CommentI believe that this song is actually talking about a relationship.

    A person that is afraid in what might happen, or what will come out of it.

    This person has known that their friend has been speaking to them, but hasn't listened to what they mean.

    And even if you were to look back, be sure and find out who was there; implies that their friend needs to remember what who they were when they were on the finding of something, either love or whatever they were trying to find.

    Don't be alarmed, I feel we're falling back to ground; he feels that they are starting over

    Misleading at most; how she confuses him, all the while he is trying to change for her(imposter a new you).

    We've make mistakes like this &
    And I'm just learning; learning how to cope with change, with what has changed, and what might happen.

    Cut me gently, cut me out of mind; don't remember me this way or at all. Or maybe, it is saying that she is cutting him out of mind, and that he can't stand it anymore.

    "Dont be alarmed i feel we're falling back to ground.
    Dont be afraid i hear in every word they say.
    even if you dont look back be sure to find out who was there and what they WORE.
    And ten more reasons.
    Your face is light and cocaine white.
    Misleading at most.
    im supposed to IMPOSTER A NEW YOU,
    And even if youre woken up.
    Keep contact both at once.
    We've made mistakes like this, and Im just learning.
    Spinning lights,
    Dont be scared.
    You have given so much more
    Spinning lights take me there.
    He has risen, Pull me under.
    Dont stop talking to me.
    I havent been listening.
    This operation's been abandoned once again.
    Cut me gently, Cut me out of mind."


    this isnt EXACTLY what he says...he adds in some of the same lines after each verse and chorus. This is right from the book copied word for word. This is personally one of my favorite songs on this album (not saying that all the others are AMAZING!!) and i think there is a lot of hidden things in his lyrics. I personally wish i could get into this guys' mind!!

    General Commenti think we can all see how obvious the lyrics(and title) to the song are. a car crash.duh!
    if you wanna go deeper, its a bad break up
    "cut me gently, cut me out of mind"
    its a horrific "crash" and he just wants to be cut out completly

    my thoughts at least
