Live from day to the next day
Try to satisfy the cravings before they
Consume you

Colours are brighter
The world can excite you
When you’re under its spell
You can tell
All too well
That without it life would be hell

And time is passing you by
It marks no moment of your life
When you submit yourself to be numb,
The fear disappears,
And everything seems clear

When the emptiness is upon you
It fills you up like a balloon
And you float
High up over the real world,
And think of when
You were a little girl again

Where would you go, baby?
What could you do?
Didn’t you hear, baby?
Nothing is sure but uncertainty

You can feel the hunger inside you
But the longing will no longer guide you onwards,
Sinking into the floorboards
Where the rats eat at your will
And do it until,
Your belly aches
And your soul will not be still

Wrench yourself from your demons
For far too long you’ve believed them
When they told you you were weak
Take a step in the tunnel
With the light ’round the bend
In the end
You can start to make amends
Who knows where you’ll go, baby
So much you could do!
Haven’t you heard, baby?
All will be well
If you want it to

    My OpinionThis song is about all those girls/women who go numb after a period of time of trying too hard.we all wait for that perfect time , perfect guy ,perfect family , perfect life in total.But more then often , it doesnt turn out to be the way we wanted.And we go so tired of trying too hard that we dont will to try anymore.Below line explains it well
    Live from day to the next day
    Try to satisfy the cravings before they
    Consume you
    Here , the singer suggests to go for our cravings.


    for instance , very often , we are in relationships where we think the other one doesnt deserve us ,but fear of getiing exposed to world again as a lone creature , fear of moving out of your comfort zone makes us stay where we are , and stick to what we have.
    Below line :
    And time is passing you by
    It marks no moment of your life
    When you submit yourself to be numb,
    The fear disappears,
    And everything seems clear

    It descibes as how we submit ourselves to numbness and dont try for better.At this point , we know what we have and we are sure of it .And there is no fear of being exposed to world again.

    You can feel the hunger inside you
    But the longing will no longer guide you onwards,
    Sinking into the floorboards
    Where the rats eat at your will
    And do it until,
    Your belly aches
    And your soul will not be still

    Here , again singer hints is as how we sit there ,not willing to try again and let all our desires be eaten up and slowly we turn into someone we are not .

    Wrench yourself from your demons
    For far too long you’ve believed them
    When they told you you were weak
    Take a step in the tunnel
    With the light ’round the bend
    In the end
    You can start to make amends
    Who knows where you’ll go, baby
    So much you could do!
    Haven’t you heard, baby?
    All will be well
    If you want it to

    Here , the singer tried to encourage the girl , to not to listen her fears where she thinks she cant try again for she is too weak.He tells her to step into tunnel (metaphor tunnel hints as something you dont know what will be atthe other end ) , but one should try.
    and the songs end with the most soothing and hopeful lines

    Haven’t you heard, baby?
    All will be well
    If you want it to
