Follow your bliss, it reads on my chest
I know I got it tattooed for a reason
Why can't I just hold it true?
Cause I'm still crashing all the funerals
Of these people that I never knew

I'm stuck in a coma
Stuck in a never ending sleep
Someday I will wake up
and realize I made up everything

I shut the door and turn all the lights out
And listen to all the songs that the night shouts
They go something just like this
So go fill up a glass with tonic, rocks, and gin
And drink yourself to happiness

I'm stuck in a coma
Stuck in a never-ending sleep
Someday I will wake up
And realize I made up everything

We can all hang ourselves from gold chandeliers
And drink it back to all, all the pain and fear
Loose lips have sunk this ship to a shallow grave
Washed up upon the rocks

I won't be saved
I won't be saved

I'm stuck in a coma
Stuck in a never-ending sleep
Someday I will wake up
And realize I gave up everything

I won't be saved
(So follow your bliss, it reads on my chest)
I won't be saved
(I know I got it tattooed for a reason)
I won't be saved
(I shut the door and turn all the lights out)
I won't be saved
(I listen to all the songs that the night shouts)

    General CommentThis song is about not living up to your potential and simply standing around waiting for good things or come to you. As the song reveals, sometimes you have to go out and seek those things yourself, but often people lose sight of what is truly important to them and fail to do anything about their situation. So he is "stuck" in this regard and "can't be saved." He has to follow his passion and save himself.

    General Commentyeah buddy has "follow your bliss" tattoed [spelling?] on his chest, and the correct lyrics are Follow your bliss, it reads on my chest.
    I know I got it tattooed for a reason.
    Why can't I just hold it true?
    'Cause I'm still crashing all the funerals
    Of these people that I never knew.
    Yeah!

    I'm stuck in a coma, stuck in a never-ending sleep.
    And some day I will wake up and realize I made up everything.

    I shut the door and turn all the lights out.
    And listen to all the songs that the night shouts.
    They go something just like this...
    So go fill up a glass with tonic rocks and gin
    and drink yourself to happiness.

    I'm stuck in a coma, stuck in a never-ending sleep.
    And some day I will wake up and realize I made up everything.

    We can all hang ourselves from gold chandeliers.
    And drink goodbye to all, all the pain and fears.
    Loose lips have sunk this ship, to a shallow grave.
    Washed up upon the rocks. I won't be saved. I won't be saved.

    I'm stuck in a coma, stuck in a never-ending sleep.
    And some day I will wake up and realize I gave up everything.

    (I won't...) So follow your bliss, it reads on my chest. (...be saved.)
    (I won't...) I know I got it tattooed for a reason. (...be saved.)
    (I won't...) I shut the door and, turn all the lights out. (...be saved.)
    (I won't...) And listen to all the songs that the night shouts. (...be saved.)

    and yeahh about the connection w the irony of dying on your birthday, i think thats in reference to the tattoo again

    General CommentIt says
    \"Follow your bliss,
    It reads on my chest, I knew I got it tattooed for a reason,
    Why can\'t I just hold it true?
    \'Cause I\'m still crashing all the funerals of these people that I never knew.\"
    and also its
    \"We can all hang ourselves,
    From gold chandeliers,
    And drink this back to hell,
    All the pain he feels,
    Loose lips have sunk this ship,
    To a shallow grave,
    Washed up upon the rocks,
    I won\'t be saved.\"
    Those are the right lyrics.
    I have the CD and thats what it says in the lyric book.
    Mhmmmmmmmmmm

    General Commenti think it's about someone who is pretending to be someone else. he doesn't know exactly who he is yet and is trying so hard to figure out who he is, but he feels fake. he escapes in his drinking. he feels like he is in anever ending sleep, he'll never wake up and discover the reality of who is and who he is meant to be. he will realize everything he said or thought he was is not true.


    this is my favorite song, i can sort of relate.

    General Commenthere you go dude.
    i'm pretty sure these lyrics are correct.

    Follow your bliss
    If it's on my chest
    I know I got it tattooed for a reason
    Why can't I just hold it true
    Cause I'm still crashing
    all the funerals
    of dead people that I never knew

    I'm stuck in a coma
    stuck in a never ending sleep
    Someday I will wake up
    and realize I made up everything

    I shut the door and
    turned all the lights out
    and listened to all the songs that the night shouts
    They go something just like this
    So, go fill up the glass with tonic rocks and gin
    and drink yourself to happiness

    I'm stuck in a coma
    Stuck in a never ending sleep.
    Someday I will wake up
    And realize I made up everything.

    We cannot hang ourselves
    From gold chandeliers
    And drink it back to all,
    All the pain it feels
    Loose lips and sunken ship
    To a shallow grave
    Washed up upon the rocks

    I won't be saved
    I won't be saved

    I'm stuck in a coma
    Stuck in a never ending sleep
    Someday I will wake up
    And realize I gave up everything

    I won't be saved
    (So follow your bliss, if it's on my chest)
    I won't be saved
    (I know I got it tattooed for a reason)
    I won't be saved
    (I shut the door and turned all the lights out)
    I won't be saved
    (I listen to all the songs that the night shouts)

    General CommentI believe it's "it beats on my chest." I could be wrong, as the clip on their web site is the only bit I've heard of this.

    But upon reading the lyrics, I can't wait for this album. Buddy's lyrics look like they've improved ten-fold since the last one.
