Second skin wears thin
In this hopeless world we live in
No light shines bright
On the eyes of the worthless children
And the streets are grave with the sight of lonely people
The machines eat the souls of the ones we call our heroes
But are we human, are we made of microchips?
Are we breeders of industrial need for world control?

Heaven killed me today, but in a friendly way
There's nothing more to lose
There's only room to gain
And my skin turns gray like a child in the rain
Like a child who's lost in the rain

So hold tight tonight
There's no belief for sinners
Your fears, your tears
Are the fuel that feeds their fires
Will the man with nails in his hand come and turn to save you
Will he ride on a cloud in the sky
Will he see right through you

Are we human, are we made of microchips
Are we breeders of industrial need for world control

Heaven killed me today, but in a friendly way
There's nothing more to lose
There's only room to gain
And my skin turns gray like a child in the rain
Like a child who's lost in the rain

I'm empty now, come fill me up
I can't help but question
Are we wasting all our time here
Just wasting all our time
Are we wasting all our time here
I'll never question

Heaven killed me today
There's nothing more to lose
There's only room to gain
And my skin turns gray
Like a child in the rain
Like a child who's lost in the rain

    General CommentGreat Song!
    I heard this on their myspace page and can't believe how good it is. I think it has something to do with reaching the bottom and questioning everything. I think the lyrics are as all great lyrics are, vague, but moving. You can derive your own personal meanings.
