Put a notch on this belt when I leave a toll is taken
My head is traveling way to fast
I gotta slow down for the sake of overlooking
The silent rituals need to be caressed
Let me stay here and hide my eyes from the bitter world
Lord knows I'm not ready to shine
Let me stay here and save my breath for the coming flood
The clocks ticking wearing out the time

So obsess a little, it's coming fast
You better hope that you're ready
So obsess a little, cuz when it's passed

I plan to be left standing
Let me at the cruel outside chances are turning over
The vessel is on it's way

My wrist won't talk, I know I've tried
Let the movement take you by the heart
The closer I get, the louder the lifeline
Let the movement take you by the heart
The closer I get, the calmer inside

    General Commentmy friend in My Children, My Bride just stayed at dallas' house the other night and told me that dallas told him this song was about matthew hasting's (singer for mcmb) father. i'm not sure how it is because i don't know matthew's personal life but it's somewhat of a hint towards getting the true meaning behind the song. or something.
