As I try to find my way this broken compass seems to lead me so much further away
To live and breathe another day, to see the things that I have seen, only few of us may

Reap the rewards of life, so much is missing or mistaken, so much doesn't seem right
Please guide me through this maze, engulfed by the gutters, trapped in this haze

So sick of this mess I'm in, far away from all the people that they really want me to be
When did this road begin, things are getting worse it's almost to the point where I can not see
That there's more to life, So much is questioned in what's written, so it may seem
Shackled in so many ways, engulfed in the strom, trapped in this haze

This compass leads me away
If you heard all the sounds, would it lift me off the ground?
Would you guide me through the rain?
So wipe my eyes and scratch my head, I can only see a couple feet in front of my face
Why don't you turn on the light instead, this kind of travesty seems to just pull me away
Chorus
This compass isn't working, my sails are slowly turning
This compass isn't working, it's slowly leading me away
This compass leads me away
If you heard all the sounds, would it lift me off the ground?
If you just turn around, and believe in what you've found,
Will you guide me through the rain
Trough the rain (repeat)

    General Commentwow not one comment how sad

    well this is a reat song and one of my favs by one of my favorite bands

    i think its about someone who is following something to achieve something else but the whole time he just keeps on getting into worse and worse situations like what ever he does it gets a darker and darker
