we set out alone
alone through the tunnel
my eyes can hardly see the other side
no longer cold or feeling troubled
i realize that i am just alive

so let it shine

'cause we are
the light in the tunnel
we are
the living and dying
see how we are
alone in the world
we are
the light in the tunnel,
that's all.

moving so slow
towards the end of the tunnel
and dont pretend i'll see the other side
and trudge through the mud
and push through the rubble
to realize that i am just alive
(alive)
so let it shine

'cuase we are
the light in the tunnel
we are
the living and dying
see how we are
alone in the world
we are
the light in the tunnel

the world is not leaving us
(leave us behind)
but we will be leaving this world
yeah, the world is not leaving us
(leave us behind)
but do we beleive in this world

'cause we are
the light in the tunnel
we are the living and dying
see how we are
alone in the world
we are
the light in the tunnel,
that's all.
(we are)
the light in the tunnel,
that's all.
(we are)
the light in the tunnel,
that's all.

    General CommentI heard this song this morning for the first time and immediately knew what it was about becuase I struggle with the same thing every day. The song is about coming to grips with the fact that there is no life after death. There is no heaven. Or God. Yea, it's an atheist song. Whoever wrote the lyrics is definitely an atheist. Examples: 1. "WE are the light in the tunnel" (We don't see heaven in near death experiences, it's just in our brain) 2. "that's all" (Part of #1, but also, our life on Earth is all there is, no heaven) 3. "and don't pretend I'll see the other side" is actually "I don't pretend I see the other side". (I don't pretend to know what happens to me after I die, like religious organizations). And a few more. There is no doubt in my mind that this is what this song means. Yeah, whoever wrote this is an atheist. That's about it.

    General CommentI think it\'s:

    I set out alone,
    Run through the tunnel,
    my eyes can hardly see the other side
    no longer cold or feeling troubled
    i realize that i am just alive

    so let it shine

    \'cause we are
    the light in the tunnel
    we are
    the living and dying
    see how we are
    alone in the world
    we are
    the light in the tunnel,
    that\'s all.

    Moving so slow,
    towards the end of the tunnel,
    I dont pretend I\'ll see the other side,
    I trudged through the mud,
    I pushed through the rubble,
    To realize that I am just alive.

    So let it shine...

    yeah
    You got it mostly right.
    Idk, maybe I\'m wrong.
    Somebody should def. post the lyrics to \"My Pesticide\" that songs amazing.
    \"Tunnel\" is too
    \"Slit Your Own Throat\" is too

    General CommentCan anyone find someplace where I can download this one, as well as My Pestitcide and Slit Your own Throat. I know what you may be thinking, illegal downloading is wrong. But I bought the album twice already, once at Best Buy and once on iTunes, thats as far as I am going, I am not buying 4 copies of the same album for 3 extra songs. So if anyone coule help me, I really really really want to hear those 3 songs and they dont seem to be on Limewire.

    Any help is much much appreciated. Thankee Sai!
