I am here, and you are here,
but we are not really here at all.

Chew them up,
build the fort,
they won't see where we're hiding.
I see the road slipping as our eyes glaze over.
Warnings, just keep those blanket and pillows coming, and turn those fucking lights off.
As long as we make it alive our ears will reject their babble, and we'll fall around like imbeciles.

    General Commentthese are the full, correct lyrics:

    i am here and you are here
    but we are not really here at all

    chew those up, build that fort
    the sky is a palet painting our demise

    our colors are overwhelming and pouring over the sides
    just keep those blankets and pillows coming
    we are FUCKED

    but as long as we make it out alive, our ears will reject their babble

    "GOD SAVE US!" half of us cried, cry cry cry cry why are we always faced with our addiction?

    General CommentI think this is about their lifestyle. how they toil to make music and tour, and how in the end all they get is a bunch of scene idiots talking trash on them.

    General CommentHaha. I slept for 36 hrs after passing out on xanax and thought of this song. It's about realizing how dangerous your addiction is.

    I am here, and you are here,
    but we are not really here at all. (ie. they're high :p)

    Chew them up, (obvious)
    build the fort, (emotionally)
    they won't see where we're hiding. (this is obvious too)
    I see the road slipping as our eyes glaze over. (Can be with any pills, but xanax and benzos will make you pass the fuck out when driving)

    Warnings, just keep those blanket and pillows coming, and turn those fucking lights off. (crashing)
    As long as we make it alive our ears will reject their babble, and we'll fall around like imbeciles. (ignoring other's warnings because you woke up alive and couldn't have fucked up too badly....)

    the funny thing about this song is, that I woke up, remembered the title of the song, but never realized how fitting the lyrics were. lol
