My lapse in life I cannot lie
Compels me to wonder why
My valid try is so far from divine

See you running (See you running)
The only way to fall is down

Strive to beat what eats within
Go ahead and drown the kid
Who thought could reach the rim
Of all the dreams once spoon fed
Hold you up to the sky
Leave you there just one more time
My valid try so far from divine

See you running (See you running)
The only way you've known how
See you running (See you running)
The only way you've known how

Back and forth I cannont take this
Forced euphoric fabrication
Held in place the heart is weightless
Breaking down I need a facelift

Don't stare at the wall

    General CommentI believe this song is about sin.
    the title refering to the seven deadly sins.
    the person in the song at times tries their hardest to keep from sinning but falls far short of perfect.
    the person is torn between good and bad, most often falling to bad.

    General CommentI think he is just giving up on trying to be perfect, he is giving in to the seven deadly sins. "The only way to fall is down."

    But then later he is trying to ask for help, but it seems like the person is always running away from him. So he struggles inside himself to find the answers.

    General CommentFirst off, I'm almost positive that instead of "divine" he is saying "dead."

    I think this song is about being held up to certain expectations. Like how your parents might want all the best things in life for you: good education, good job and etc, but you can't live up to their expectation.

    General Commenti think he is trying to make a relationship different, but the the negativity viewed is so overwhelming and almost impossible to change. So giving up is the answer

    General Commenti believe its about going insane realy..
    "Strive to beat what eats within
    Go ahead and drown the kid
    Who thought could reach the rim"
    its saying your loosing knowlege of yourself
    "Compels me to wonder why
    My valid try is so far from divine"
    but that is just my thought

    General Comment7 is said to be the number of God...and we all want to be our own Gods (and Godesses) don't we?
    hahaha but thats rediculous, come on now, we are not perfect beings in any way and have many flaws be it.
    Humans are made over time, with our experience and knowledge we slowly better as individuals.
    Keep Running towards what you want (in..life), because simply you will get it if you Truly want it.
    Don't think you are being held back by who you are and stack your obstacles, slow-down, Use thetime you have and make yourself.

    Word. Some Words.
