For years I've seen you fighting
Against your heart
Living like you're dying
So far from the sun

Waiting for a guardian angel
To lead you through the dangers
That lie ahead on your way
Towards tomorrows arms

Tears have turned from sweet to sour and hours to days
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world's embrace
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage

We all have our fears but yours are
The scariest of them all
Lift your head and let us taste
The horror you adore

And it all starts to makes sense
All the blood wisely shed
Just wait until the cure comes knocking on your door

Tears have turned from sweet to sour and hours to days
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world's embrace
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage you're locked in

Tears have turned from sweet to sour and hours to days
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world's embrace
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage you've locked yourself in

    General Comment:Love this song. beautiful lyrics.

    I think that this song is about someone who is afraid of the world, afraid to get out of "the cage" because mabe this person was hurt in the past. this "cage" consists of this persons fears, insecureties, tears and all this other type of negativity and depression. blah blah blah...

    "tears that turn from sweet to sour
    and hours to days
    your hiding yourself away
    from our cruel worlds in embrace
    and as your days turn to weeks
    you will cry yourself to sleep
    in the cage
    and as your days turn to weeks
    you will cry yourself to sleep
    in the cage youve locked yourself in"

    This person is trapped within their own mind, their own body and their own heart. Trapped within themselves, unable to break free because they locked themselves in.

    General Comment:Thats exactly what I took it to mean. The cage is a personal sanctuary, somewhere this person has locked themselves to keep them protected from the harsh reality of the world. Someone who is too scared to face the world and open up.
    This song means so much to me, for years i was locked in my own little cage, and in a way i still am, but since listening to HIM i've started to open up a little more.

    General Comment:This is probably the best song on their horrible new album. Anyone else think their new album is really emo?
