Feel the life inside
A remnant of the tide
That raged within when you were still alive
Never mind the cries
Listen to the lies
While we’re waiting for the dead to rise.

While we wait for them to rise.

The world belongs to those
Who stand out from the rows
Of wayward and misguided silent souls.
History is shamed.
By people laying blame.
To everyone who doesn't feel the same.

The sun fades beyond the water as we bring on the night.

Sleep and fade away (tonight).
Inside these walls we wait (our lifeforce drains).
To change takes more than to remain.
Therefore we lay -back- in the comfort of our chains.

Sleep and fade away (tonight).
Inside these walls we wait (our lifeforce drains).
To change takes more than to remain.
Therefore we lay -back- in the comfort of our chains.

Sleep and fade away
Inside these walls we wait.
Wake up to the silence
After judgment day.

Sleep and fade away
Inside these walls we wait.
Wake up to the silence
After judgment day.

Sleep and fade away
Inside these walls we wait.
Wake up to the silence
After judgment day.

"I fall asleep and fade away
In the dark.
Too tired to keep going,
I want to remain this way. It's better to do nothing but wait.
It's better to just being like this."

    General CommentPerhaps a political undercurrent in this song? Through out history, the people who have made their mark on the human race are those who have stood up and been different. They have gone against the grain of common society.

    And a good chunk of them have sacrificed their lives in order for their voice to be heard.

    For the most part, it is so true that it does take more effort to change then it does to remain the same. Therefore we do lay back in our chains.

    Sleep and fade away
    Inside these walls we wait.
    Wake up to the silence
    After judgment day.

    Is it us that will sleep and fade away or the voices of those who stood up? And as for judgement day, we will reap the consequences of staying in the comfort of our chains.

    Worst comes to worst, just enjoy the music! Its a fantastic song regardless of definition.

    General CommentI have to say I agree with missjaxter. Pretty much covers the song for me.

    The sun fades beyond the water as we bring on the night.
    Our inaction brings on the darkness. It is our fault, because we will not 'stand out from the rows Of wayward and misguided silent souls.'

    "I fall asleep and fade away
    In the dark.
    Too tired to keep going,
    I want to remain this way. It's better to do nothing but wait.
    It's better to just being like this."
    Hits the nail on the head really. I love this song and its lyrics.
