This is black skies and reality
These are bullets flying through me
And it’s surreal right now
I don’t know if I’m awake

There’s blood on my hands
But I don’t know if it’s mine
Doctor tell me, tell me I’m fine
Because I can’t feel my legs
I can’t feel my lungs exhale

This is right where i've got to be
I don't know where it is, but it's bright
And waking up to this isn't what I thought

“Just breathe, I’ve got to focus”
And figure out where I am
I’m in a white room, standing next to my dad
“Hello son, your wings look good,
And you did great down there, but your time was done
It's perfect here, you don’t have to miss me anymore
Because I’m with you, I’m with you”

This is black skies and reality
These are bullets flying through me
And it’s surreal right now
I don’t know if I’m awake

“Just breathe, I’ve got to focus”
And figure out where I am
I’m in a white room, standing next to my dad.

    Song MeaningYou're almost correct Crazy.

    I know the lead singer's family personally.. The song is (I'm pretty sure) written by Jeremiah (lead singer). A few years back his father died. "I'm in a white room, standing next to my dad. 'Hello son, your wings look good.'" I believe the song is talking about how when he dies, he will be reunited with his dad in Heaven.

    If you knew the family, you would know how emotionally touching this song is..
