Contagious
Like the rhythm of a record through my mind
Played slowly
To emphasize the condition of a dead line
So hopeless
Let the record play on and on and on

Can I speak
Can I speak now
Without a voice to call my own
I’m left to walk these streets alone
Waiting through the afternoon
Again
And time can't get the best of me
Surely I will never be
Waiting through the afternoon
Again

Don’t rush it
‘Cause I’m not living my one life
Without danger
The stakes it takes making what we make (giving up to the page)
And so I’m left waiting
Let the record play on and on and on

Can I speak
Can I speak now
Without a voice to call my own
I’m left to walk these streets alone
Waiting through the afternoon
Again (the afternoon again)
And time can't get the best of me
Surely I will never be (will never be)
Waiting through the afternoon
Again

The afternoon again
I have to walk the streets alone (afternoon again)
Without a voice to call my own (the afternoon again, yeah)

Can I speak
Can I speak
Without a voice to call my own (without a voice)
I’m left to walk these streets alone
Waiting through the afternoon
Again (the afternoon again)
And time can't get the best of me
Surely I will never be (will never be)
Waiting through the afternoon
Again (waiting through the afternoon again)
Again

    General Commentto me, it seems like pain, fear, frustration.. something has comsumed him. And like all of us, we let it get to us to much that you don't think there will every be a way to get out. It seems like he is trying to find himself again and live past the hurt.
