Sixteen hours in your day spent wishing you were miles away
Hotel rooms materialistic thoughts,
Thoughts clutter up you head
You're so alive but somethings dead,
Expectation hurts so let it burn and fade away..
let it burn and fade, fade away

Cornered in the room you light a cigarette and leave
Throw it on the ground and let it burn

She has a sentimental way,
scans photos from her younger days
but all the friends she had have moved away,
And it's hard to stay in love
when there's nothing there to keep you up,
Expectation hurts so let it burn and fade away,
Let it burn and fade, fade away..

Cornered in the room you light a cigarette and leave
Throw it on the ground and watch these ashes turn from leaves.
It isn't worth the aggravation, sing your soul to sleep,
Throw it on the ground and let it burn

Cornered in the room you light a cigarette and leave
Throw it on the ground and watch these ashes turn from leaves
You know we're dying away
I feel were dying
Sometimes I feel were dying
Sometimes I feel were dying
When it's bringing me down

    General CommentI hope more people find out about these guys, they are freakin awesome. this is just about not wanting to deal with life, the future, love etc...

    I think the end of the song (when the drums and guitar kick in) is expressing regret that so many people allow life to bring them down...and that thought brings him down!
