Pull me closer to the sun
Until the armor melts away
Into your twilight
Now I know just what it's like
To see the world through your eyes
And how fast you use it up

All that human clay keeps reaching for your frame
Until it fills
All the cracks inside you
I can't understand it when you say

Their colors are so bright
And then they dim and you're on the ground

And when your consciousness comes back
Spitting up and calling out
There will be no shadows
Over you

And you'll scream:

What have I done; With my life
Give it all back; It's over
Won't be enough; To save me
What a tragedy!

And I will give it all up
Give it all up; So you could
Give me a chance; To hold you
Won't be enough; Won't be enough to save me
What a tragedy!

Now you're up and running from yourself
As the streetlights flash ahead
But they will lead you nowhere
Feel the skin starting to burn away
As your internals beg to stay
But you speed up anyway

All the strings you're tied to
Are pulling so much harder than before
But you can't cut through them
Even if you broke free
The shock would tear you apart
But you're way past caring now

Glowing frozen in that light
All your features so laid out
There'll be no shadows over you
As the twilight fades to black

You're not coming back

    My InterpretationWell I guess that's about someone, who had lost his life, trying to fit in to the society (or the society in some way had forced him to be someone else). It's about someone, who gave up his chances and suddenly realized it's too late for him to turn back and live a life he always wanted. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how I understand it.
