At times I find my mind unwinds
and I don't think when I walk
I run into things and fall down
It's coming around again and I found
sometimes I don't think when I talk
and I put my foot in my mouth and
sometimes when I, I look at me
I wish I could be somebody else
Sometimes I throw myself and let go,
but never no intention to see
a picture of me and try myself

All this time we've been mislead,
does anyone care at all?

Sometimes I fall asleep
and then I lose control
I try to find my way out
without letting go
and will I lose my mind
if it comes back this time?
If I don't turn out perfect
will you be a friend of mine?

It's coming around again and I found
sometimes I stay when I should
get up and just walk away
Sometimes I pretend and act like I do,
but don't listen to a word you say
and sometimes when I start talking out loud
Should Just shut my mouth and walk away
Sometimes I feel like maybe it's real and think like nobody else
To close to myself and suffocate

All this time we've been mislead,
does anyone care at all?

Sometimes I fall asleep
and then I lose control
I try to find my way out
without letting go
and will I lose my mind
if it comes back this time?
If I don't turn out perfect
will you be a friend of mine?

Are you ready to crawl out?
Are you read to take my hand and see?
Are you ready to crawl out
and within slow bleed?
And within slow bleed

Take this away from me

Sometimes I fall asleep
and then I lose control
I try to find my way out
without letting go
and will I lose my mind
if it comes back this time?
If I don't turn out perfect
will you be a friend of mine?

Sometimes I fall asleep
and then I lose control
I try to find my way out
without letting go
and will I lose my mind
if it comes back this time?
If I don't turn out perfect
will you be a friend of mine?

    General Commenti love this song soo much
    i love how it says..

    "All this time we've been mislead,
    does anyone care at all?"

    thats so true starting off with them taking the bible out of school many many years ago..
    its also talking about how every one can lose sight of what is important...such as keeping in faith

    "sometimes I stay when I should
    get up and just walk away"

    Just an allround good song
    (i dont think all the lyrics are completely correct)

    General CommentI agree with KrystleB225....

    Taking the bible out of schools has really been a mistake, i mean what are we teaching this generation. Now i'm only a freshman, but i take my bible to school and i see how hard it is to cope with everyone around you looking down, never knowing why having a faith means so much to somebody that has none at all. Unless thats their cry to find a saviour.

    General CommentIt's such a suprise, the chaotic feel to the song, they don't have much verses like that in their songs.

    General Commentin the first verse the missing lines should go
    "sometimes i throw myself and let go
    but never no intention to see a picture of me and trap myself"
    2nd verse
    "Sometimes I pretend and act like i do,
    but don't listen to a word you say
    and sometimes when I start talking out loud
    should just shut my mouth and walk away
    Sometimes I feel like maybe it's real and think like nobody else
    too close to myself and suffocate"

    General Commentyea these lyrics need a little polish but regardless i love this song. I think it's about realizing how sinful we are and how amazing far we are from being what we are supposed to be. The part right before the chorus kicks in definitely gives way to the feelings of isolation we christians feel in the world. No one seems to care about their sins as much, so much they don't seem to "care at all" The chorus part I'm not sure on...could be perhaps the worse part of our sin, how we can't control our own minds and we sin even in mere thought. it says somewhere in the bible (i'd give you the exact verse but I'm lazy :P) that even expressing hate towards someone you've murdered them in your heart, same with adultery and even thinking about someone with lustful intent. Perhaps he was saying how he was afraid to fall asleep cause he knew his mind was going to sin.

    General CommentAre you kidding me? It has NOTHING to do with religion! The song is about becoming a monster, something you thought you'd never become and asking a friend if they see you like that would they still be your friend in the end? NOTHING to do with "God" they write songs about LIFE not GOD.

    General CommentDude,not sound messed up but it is a christian rock band.They have said it before.But in saying this your half right and half wrong.
    1- thier are people who directly make references kinda like gospels.Seventh Day Slumber does this for example.Then you have people who are christians that send out a positive message due to the influences of their relationship to god,but applying this to people of all walks.Also people would get turned off and they have something to say,in doing this they dont jepordize what they want to do as artist.
    2- Its not impossible for this song to talk about ones walk with God and again Trevor has even said that he wants his song to relate and click with his listeners,He said that in the song "Favorite Disease" he was talking about god,but it could mean anything that is so important to a person.
    3-you dont exactly have to Yell jesus in a song to make it christian.Most christians preach by loving one another and not just fellow christians,but to the most unlikely.We manefest our love through our actions.Personally I was an athiest and hated God,even my self and didnt want anything to do with it,but love led me to another door,one that I never dreamed that I would come across.plus this really annoying kid annoyed me about coming to his church.lol
    So with that said I agree with AdamWTF,he is talking about life,but its not impossible that somethings behind it,influecing him,cuz we all have something that motivates us.
    Regrdless this song is awesome!
