Figurines that fall like leaves and disappear
Keep calling
Is it real? Is it real?

Dark machines that wheeze and breathe and mock the air
Appalling
What is real? What is real?

This world can really be too much
I can't take another day
I guess that I've just had enough
My mind's slipping far away
I'm falling in and out of touch
Could someone please explain?

Set my mind for open sky, but couldn't fly
So sadly
What am I? What am I?

Sullen eyes shed teardrop lies and criticize
Now laughing
What is real? What is real?

It's really all become too much
I'm not sure how I should feel
I guess I've finally had enough
I don't know if this is real
I'm crashing in and out of touch
Can anyone explain?

    General CommentThis is a great song. He's pretty tired of how life's treating him. Thats all I got out of it. Beautiful. I especially love the (synthesizer?) after the chorus.

    General CommentLonging for meaning, in a seemingly objectively-confusing world.
    That's what I take from it :¬)
