The first thing that I heard at 6AM: the world
Waking up and coming in with a warrant.
It's still not light, but I hope you're all set to go.
I hope you’re all set to go.

‘Cause we’re going alive or dead or in a million pieces
Just wasting away, to watch it all fade
To black as it goes by the window.
Take it away, it’s another day.

The last thing that I said; I was wishing for a bed
With my hands around my head, the last night on my breath,
It’s all right ‘cause I’m ready and set to go.
Never respectable.

We’re going alive or dead or in a million pieces (needs correction)
Just wasting away, watch it all fade
To black as it goes by the window.
Take it away, it’s another day.

Are you alive or dead or in a million pieces? (incorrect?)
Or wasting away? Watch it all fade
To black as it goes by the window.
Take it away, it’s another day.

    General Commentomg I fucking love this song...the guitars are AMAZING!
    I guess it's just generally about moving on with life,no matter what happened in the past or how tired or wrecked you feel.

    General CommentThe world moves on whether or not you agree with where it's going. Sometimes it feels like it's out there to get you and you alone, but that's just the way it is. Everyone feels like that at some point. It's much easier if you realize this fact and let the Ebb and Flow take you. Don't fight it. Embrace it. It will take you wonderful places.
