I've been told to remember
"Keep your lemur eyes wide"
Someday you'll make a life of this
So carry on, carry on
But I've become so offenseless
Despite these weapons i bear
Have we toned up our finest
Or did we take this

Too Far down
The road you know I'm scared to go down
I'm waking up anxious to lay back down
'Cause all i can do here is wait
Just wait, I'll hurry up and wait

Well i can't read her expression
'Cause man this vixen she's sly
As she keeps me suspended
I've lost all control of this flight
High, yeah yeah
We've ravaged our chances to shine
Would you take what I'm giving to you or did i take this
Did we take this

Too far down
The road you know i'm scared to go down
I'm waking up anxious to lay back down
'Cause all i can do here is wait, just you wait

So have it your way
I know you'll be watching with gallant eyes
As we shake the wreckage
And break from these hauntingly silent nights
Break from these silent nights
Will this take forever?
We might have a shot if we'd stray
But what's another day

Of hurry up and wait
Hurry up and wait
Hurry up and wait
It's all that you can do now

    General CommentI love this song, I'm not quite sure what it means, but my favourite part of the song is when he sings 'I'm waking up anxious to lay back down', it's sung with so much emotion.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about a person who made choices and has ended up in a place with another person and doesn't know what to do now. He's waiting for some sort of indication of what he's supposed to do now, but until then, he's too unsure of his situation to do anything.

    General CommentI think this song is about a person liking someone but that person wants to wait to have a relationship so that they don't both screw it up but in the end one person is getting too anxious about it and just wants to be with that other person...if that makes any sense at all
