Watch her rise above the wreckage
See her fly through glass
See the world spin 'round again, again, again

Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life
Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life...
Down here

Watch her rise above the wreckage
South of 64
Graceful arms, bent and broken
Were meant for something more

Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life
Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life

Twisted bodies
Surrender for the last time
Reborn angels
To bring the sun down on this world

Demons wasted as they're running through red signs
From the black I know you're finding your way back home
Finding your way back home

Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life
Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life
Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life...
Down here

Surrender for the last time
Reborn angels
To bring the sun down on this world
Surrender for the last time
Watch her rise above the wreckage
Surrender for the last time

    General CommentI'm confused. Is this about car accidents? (see her fly through glass, south of 64, graceful arms bent and broken, running through red signs)

    Song Meaning"Don't waste your beautiful, your beautiful life...Down here"

    So I get the car accident, but what does he mean when he says that line? If she's deceased, well.. isn't her "life" already passed?
