Into the fray we can't jump to conclusions
For we are not what it seems like
Give me your hand, give me your hand

I came to you
you promised me
that you were on just a temporary phase
sheets in the wind
no harm at all
No blood, no foul

But now you're hurt
And it's just killing me to see
Tonight I'd do anything to untie you
from this locomotive

If falling faster helps
I'll sink into oblivion
I'll sink so fast your head will spin

You hold the vapor in your hands
To disregard the scent that pulls you out
This fleeting glimpse is all you have
Please don't blink twice
It will disappear before your eyes

I saw the look in your eyes
Screaming out for mercy
Sidestepping series of disappearing waves
Of disappointment
All the things that hold you back
Please tell me why you won�t let me in
You're slitting your own neck
And I can't stop you from trying

If falling faster helps
I'll sink into oblivion
I'll sink so fast your head will spin

You hold the vapor in your hands
To disregard the scent that pulls you out
This fleeting glimpse is all you have
Please don't blink twice
It will disappear before your eyes

Your heart is beating faster now
With abrasive syllables, you stumble for a shaky word
My heart is bursting for the time
When sleep won�t come
Till safety rings in my ears
I'll never be able to sleep
I'll never be able to sleep again

Thanks for coming
He said as he walked up to the steps
With our heads held low
Aware of out cracked faces in the sun
We had been running for so long
We had been running
That our shoes were as paper
as we struggled on these blistered feet

His words are as a gentle breeze
We had been sweating
grief stricken tears we had been crying
But it was finished all along

Now we can hold our hears up high
And say that it was worth the climb
The struggle for our very soul
The struggle was not ours at all

    General CommentWow i've never really looked into this song, but holy hell its good. this is soo good. Now im seeing a ton of suicide references, and apparantly he's trying to stop her(or whoever) from doing it. there are some religious tones in this for sure.

    I just love the break in the middle when he has the real hollow sounding scream; its so emotional and desperate. its fucking great. there are some seriously good lines in this song.
    "I came to you
    you promised me
    that you were on just a temporary phase"-that one hits me a bit. going out with a cutter sucks. damn lying bitches.

    "If falling faster helps
    I'll sink into oblivion"
