I can't get the stains out
Can't get the taste you left out of my mouth
I don't like the music
I don't know if I like the way this all sounds

I don't need a reason
Don't need the demon justifying every crime
I shut down and restart
And yet I still tend to fall apart from time to time

And I can't blink my eyes
I'm so scared that I'll miss everything
I can't say goodbye this soon
And it's so beautiful when I hear your name
And yet so beautiful to watch me go down in flames

I've got complications
Got these aggravations but i don't want to complain
I'm broken in pieces
Stapled to reasons that i don't want to explain

And I can't blink my eyes
I'm so scared that I'll miss everything
I can't say goodbye this soon
And it's so beautiful when I hear your name
And yet so beautiful to watch me go down in flames

Burning under me the things you can't see
I can't blink my eyes and I can't breathe

And it's so beautiful when I hear your name
And yet so beautiful, no it's not the same
It's so beautiful, so typical
It's so beautiful to watch me go down in flames

    General CommentNo comments? Wow! To me this song is about a guy who is loosing in his relationship, and is trying to hold on and not miss one second before she leaves him.

    General Commentyea, this is definately something of a losing battle... besides that, it almost sounds like hes only hanging on because hes too afraid to move on
