i feel, like the one who can't break up
am i unwelcome, should i leave with all my doubt
i know, these feelings always pass
but tonight i'm all alone, should i just ask

i can't sleep with these objects closing in
i'm short of breath
i'm tired, i'm tired of running
even my dreams, they seem to take effect
i'm losing it
i'm losing it

you say, you'll lighten up my load
my back is broken,
maybe i should just stay home
you say, you'll hold me in these times
so wrap your arms around me,
and ease my troubled mind

i can't sleep with these objects closing in
i'm short of breath
i'm tired, i'm tired of running
even my dreams, they seem to take effect
i'm losing it
i'm losing it
time steals my heart, feeling naked once again
i can't move i'm tired
tired of running (tired of running)
tired of running

    General CommentAwesome song. The new Beautiful Mistake was a bit more of an acquired taste considering I fell in love with Light A Match-era TBM, but this Split proves they're just as on top of their game as ever. That bass line is incredible. I think the title's pretty descriptive of the meaning. Full of imagery of being exhausted, broken, tired and the doubt that can arise from such weariness and yet there is hope that things will improve. Personally I think it's an address to God about how he can't keep trying to live for himself because his life lacks meaning and becomes a tired weariness he can no longer run from.

    General Commenti agree with getting used to the lighter sound. but i'm always open minded and willing to listen to a band i admire, that has a bit of change. this song is really good.
