"This Heart Attack" as written by and Nathan Charles Hudson....
I'm going away to be alone
I'm coming back with answers
Don't try to call
My telephone, it's disconnected

And I don't know where I'm going
But can you guide me
But if I find love where I'm going
Will it survive me?

'Cause in your own space
You're disconnected
And in your own mind
You're not affected

And in your own time
You're still attracted but in your own life

This heart attack
I've gotta get away not coming back
I want some downtime
So call me when you can and I'll be fine

I've found the time to be alone
I don't know what you're asking
I'm waiting by the telephone
And you're still barking

My heart stops, it isn't going
Could you revive me?
I think I'm lost without knowing
So come and find me

'Cause in the same space
We're disconnected
And in your own mind
You're not attracted

But in your own life over reacted
And in your own time

This heart attack, I think
I'll go away not coming back
I'm off the line
So call me when you can some other time

This heart attack
I've gotta get away not coming back
I want some downtime
So call me when you can and I'll be fine

Sometimes if we don't go
Sometimes you don't know
You don't go, I don't go
I don't go, you don't go

I've got your back
But you don't got mine
This heart attack
Then I'm feeling fine

This heart attack
I've gotta get away I'm not coming back
I'm 'bout to flat line
So call me when you can some other time

This heart attack
I've gotta get away not coming back
I want some downtime
So call me when you can some other time

I'm going away to be alone
I'm going away to be alone
I'm going away to be alone
I'm going away to be alone

    General CommentNo one has really commented on what the lyrics mean...which is odd cause it's kind of the whole point of the website XD

    Anyways, I think this song is about loving someone but they don't feel the same way or don't know. You need to get away from them and possibly find someone else. It also could be about being in a relationship and just needing a break or some time apart or they just had a fight and he just wants to leave it alone until they both cool off. Something like that.

    General Comment"I'm back to flying" i'm pretty sure is meant to be "I'm about to flatline"

    General CommentThe lead singer sounds a lot like Robert Smith towards the end of the song.

    General CommentFaker is the Best! well, at least, this song is, and so is Hurricane! RANDOM and it is gooooood! you gotta hear it.

    um, meaning...

    "going away to be alone, coming back with answers" self explanatory- he loves pie. no, no im sorry, listening to the hurricane made me like this im sorry

    going away to be alone needs space to think about things so he can get a clear head and a clear take on the situation, hes confused (gosh why is everyone so confused by love all the time..oh yeah, THATS right, love...duh)

    maybe the chick or wateva is too clingy but dosnt take him seriously,for real, or just takes him for granted forever.

    "Cause in your own space you’re disconnected and in your own mind you’re not affected
    And in your own time you’re still attracted but in your own life..."
    so that could be meaning they don't have any feelings for them anymore, but after a while they find they're still thinking about them way too much, so maybe he's going away for a while from his current girl to think about stuff and clear his head cos he keeps thinkin bout his ex...? possibly?

    "Cause in the same space we’re disconnected and in your own mind you’re not attracted
    But in your own life over reacted and in your own time..."

    continuing from the "thinkin bout his ex" theme, his girlfriend dumped him, they dont talk anymore, "disconnected" if they ever run into each other in the same place, "space". and his girlfriend has got over him, and hes saying "in your own time"...maybe you'll forgive me

    and he dosnt wanna like his ex so hes "going away to be alone" to detox himself from all the STUFF
