Dress warm, the summer's gone
These walls exhausted
This swim I take
I may need a rescue
Shimmering signals cry
And this water is so cold

Blend like paper and ink
My hero sighs
Sleep tight, it's not over
I'll shield you from harm
I'll spare you tonight

Yeah, now I feel invincible
Throw your cards down and test me
Start over, slow dancing
In this world based on standards in fire

Unclothed by dawn
I feel my arms, they weaken
Loud and clear you telegram my station
As darkness fills the sky
And these stories they unfold

Yeah, now I feel invincible
I'm throwing daggers at bull's eyes
My instinct's the warning
In this world based on standards in fire

You'll be the one there waiting
Your first touch will cure this open sore
My last dance in the streets I've played in
Head verse my heart
I walk through this night alone
Walls stand, built to be broken
Sit tight and absorb this rocket ride
Fall short from the hand I lay in
No turning back, this road is far from home

    General Commentdang son why are there so few comments on all their songs??
    they're quite an awesome band. not one youd expect coming from hawaii.
    well i think this song is about his feelings towards this girl whom he
    loves but she keeps hurting him over and over again. but she keeps
    coming back to him and he tries to keep her out, because hes hurt,
    but he eventually takes her back cuz he loves her stupidly. this
    explains the 'walls stand, built to be broken' and all the other
    references to walls. and then in some other parts of the song hes
    expressing how he feels whenever she hurt him, and he built a wall
    up against her, he thinks hell be able to resist her and hes telling
    himself that he can, he doesnt need her, and that hes 'invincible'
    ok so maybe an easier way to explain this all was to say its about
    him building walls to seperate himself from this girl who keeps
    hurting him, and hes determined to keep her out, he feels invincible.
    there we go. *whew*
