If you break that's all you can do
My mistake was I thought more of you
If you find yourself beside me looking for some faith
I can't say that our world is safe
When I'm on my way to another lonely place

Lasting heartache is now in view
A cold dark shade that once was you
If you find yourself beside me looking for some faith
I can't say that our world is safe
When I'm on my way to another lonely place
I can't say that our world is safe
When I'm on my way I'm sad to leave this
Pale eyes on a sullen face
Frail ties and time misplaced
time misplaced

So if you break that's all you can do
My mistake was I thought I knew you but
Colours bleed through, Colours bleed through
And you who I thought that I knew
Colours bleed through
I can't say that our world is safe
When I'm on my way to another lonely place
I can't say that our world is safe
When I'm on my way with the will to leave this place
yeah yeah yeah yeah
Colours bleed through
Colours bleed through

    General CommentGreat song!!!

    I'm not sure what the Trews were thinking during the writing of this song...but for me, it makes me think about what's coming after death.

    Being a Christian, I'm pretty excited about getting to heaven, I'm been told that it's amazing. I think a lot of other believers in "life after death", from various religious faiths, are equally excited to be "on my way with the will to leave this place"...So excited, in fact, that we forget there is a lot of trouble in the world ("I can't say that our world is safe") like war, and human slavery, and abuse, that we all need to help fix.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm so stoked for heaven, it's just that I now realize that until then, there's work to be done here and now.

    Yeah, that's just what I got from it - again, probably NOT the Trews were thinking. :P
