She’s eating this disorder
Starving herself.
‘Cause she’s starving for attention
Like it’s vital to her health
And she cries
Out in lights

If anyone could see me
Could you give me what I need?
She takes her pills and it keeps her alive
She takes these pills to fill her up inside

He's standing on the corner
Holding out his hand
And he’s begging for someone
Anyone to understand
And he cries
Out in lights

If anyone could see me
Could you give me what I need?
If anyone could see me
Could you make my heart not bleed?

(repeat)

You take your pills to fill you up inside

    General Commentumm actually it's a song for anyone in genrel, I don't struggle with any of the things that the chacters are in this song, but it touchs me, becase it reassures me that ther IS a God, and that in Him there IS Hope. this is truly an amazing song, NEVERTHELESS can sure write good music! and perform it well to!

    General Commenti agree with foreverhis888
    this song is talkting about how everyone tries to fill their lives with things that they think will satify them but in the end they just end up feeling empty and lost. we look for happiness in the places we shouldn't, we think that a person, material object, a certain look, etc. can fill the whole we have, the emptiness we long to fill but the one and only person who can do that is staring us right in the face. it's god, so why do we still look for these things, why are we running?
