Time to fall asleep
And take the fractions of emotions
That still litter your stale dreams like barley
I'm falling asleep
I'll bear this broken down cross with you
Piece it together like you wanted me to
I'll protect your sense of right
I'll dissect your senses till you find me.

I'm hurting myself
If the value won't depreciate
Appreciate it somewhere else
Leave me on the shelf
And though it still hurt to say
You always said that you wanted it that way
I'll protect your sense of right
I'll dissect your senses till you find me.

And it's another obsidian bloodbath
But don't lie
When you said the alps never would grow flat
You called out wolf too many times.

It's hard to save a life
When the dreams you enter fracture through
A million and one reflections
But tonight
I'm saving a life
Through the hissing of watches and the ticking of clocks
I'll show the hours my open palm
I'll protect your sense of right
I'll dissect your senses till you find me.

I'm falling asleep (x6)

I'll protect your sense of right
I'll dissect your senses till you find me.

And it's another obsidian bloodbath
But don't lie
When you said the alps never would grow flat
You called out wolf too many times
Called out wolf too many times.

    General CommentGreat great song and video clip. The meaning of the song isn't that obvious, but i guess it deals with the pursuit of love and the protection of a loved one.

    General CommentYeah awesome song, the line "another obsidian bloodbath", I didnt know what obsidian meant so I looked it up, seems to be some form of rock. Is this a reference to "trying to get blood from a stone"?

    General Commenti think that could be right. the term "obsidian" could refer to the heart of the person that this song is directed to (their heart is like a stone)

    General Commentthe overall song possibly refers to how the singer is constantly being used (abused might be a better term) by the person he loves, but will continue to bury his own pain in order to protect this loved one from experiencing pain. the only time he can express this pain is when he is trying to sleep and reflect on how he will always be there for his loved one, no matter how long it takes that person to love him back

    General CommentI know it sounds weird but i can't help thinking this song has an under-lying alcohol meaning with mentioning the 'sleeping' and 'barely' and it could be about how he's with a girl he likes but she's hurting him and after a few drink the boundries are falling down and he's getting into turmoil about her. Its a lovely song though - it really hit something with me when i first heard it.
