"A Moment Suspended In Time" as written by and Timothy/gillespie Mctague....
Held captive, I'm a prisoner
In the back room where the water leaks
And I'm, oh, so cold

Command me on what to do
But we both know
Neither you or I are in control

There's nothing left for me here
I'm grabbing on to what's left of this hole
It's all too real, this can't be happening

Never again, ever again, will I say I'm okay
I'm scared of the fate that will become mine
Become mine

No time to talk
No time to talk
You know the drill

Under my desk, this can't be it
I'm only dreaming
(I've got to be dreaming)

But I can't get up
No time to talk, not this time
(This is my place)
This is where I arrange

Under my desk, this can't be it
I'm only dreaming
(I've got to be dreaming)

But I can't get up
No time to talk, not this time
(This is my place)
This is where I arrange

It's so funny how we see things so clear
When we have no time left to live

So, lay back now
And take it in
I won't say a word
I won't say anything

So, lay back now
And take it in
And I won't say anything

I can't believe how it feels
To stand here in this room
And feel like it's gonna blow
I think we're all gonna blow

Under my desk, this can't be it
I'm only dreaming
(I've got to be dreaming)

But I can't get up
No time to talk, not this time
(This is my place)
This is where I arrange

Well, I've got to be dreaming
(I've got to be dreaming)
We've got to be dreaming
(We've got to be dreaming)
(We've gotta go)

I've got to be dreaming
(I've got to be dreaming)
We've got to be dreaming
Please, don't wake me up
This is the end

This is the end
This is the end

    General CommentI believe this song is about struggling to stay true as a Christian. I get such a feeling of desperation from this song. The writer knows he's drowning in his sins, and he doesn't know what to do.

    General CommentI just bought the new UnderOATH CD at midnight this morning. Here are the real lyrics (out of the booklet):

    Hold captive, I'm a prisoner
    In the back room where the water leaks and I'm oh, so cold.
    Command me on what to do, but we both know neither you or I are in control.

    There's something left for me here.
    I'm grabbing on to what's left of this hole, it's all too real this can't be happening.
    Never again, ever again, will I say I'm Ok.
    I'm scared of the fate that will become mine.

    No time to talk, you know the drill.

    Under my desk this can't be it.
    I'm only dreaming, I've got to be dreaming.
    But I can't get up, No time to talk, not this time, this is my place.
    This is where I arrange.

    It's so funny how we see things so clear when we have no time left to live.

    So lay back now and take it in,
    I wont say a word, I wont say anything.

    I can't believe how it feels.
    To stand here in this room,
    and feel like it's going to blow.
    I think we're all going to blow.

    I've got to be dreaming.
    We've got to be dreaming.
    Please don't wake me up.
    This is the end.

    General CommentGrowing up in FL (same state as the boys from UnderOath), I know all about tornado drills, and this seems to be what hes talking about. We were required to get under our desks and wait til we were told to come out. This song is his thought process while experiencing a tornado..Coming to terms with the fact that he is probably going to die. He would rather die under his desk than wake up from his dream. He's ready to meet God. Amen.

    General Commentthanks again LifeMeansBitter.
    good catch owen. the whole tornado drill theory would explain alot of the weird, seemingly random comments about the desk and such, but i think the tornado drill is still just a metaphor. Maybe for how we need to lose or almost lose things to see their true value. I am a christian but i will admit it gets visciously annoying when we try to over apply God and Christianity into things that may be simply about life itself. And seeing God created life and all things, then why do we need to over apply and seemingly over compensate for our Belief.

    Just a thought.
