I can't believe this. You fucking died
I tried to tell you. That you never die young, no you never die young
You might have listened, but you'll never learn
This place is twisted; we are so far from home
[x2]

And I'll wear a heavy shadow just to show that I'm awake,
but it doesn't really matter when you're burning at the stake
Does it prove that you're a saviour? Is it out of your control?
And I don't know where we belong

This is panic. This is failure
This is everything you'd ever want to be
And even if you try to cut these already broken ties baby,
I will let you know
Behind a black and whit screen; behind a black and white screen she learns;
She will never learn

And I'll wear a heavy shadow just to show that I'm awake,
but it doesn't really matter when you're burning at the stake
Does it prove that you're a saviour? Is it out of your control?
And I don't know where we belong

Between the walls, you hear your children breathing
Step back and watch the headlines on the ceiling
And even if you want to let them go;
you have to let them know that we are th bad ones
And we can save their very souls

And I'll wear a heavy shadow just to show that I'm awake,
but it doesn't really matter when you're burning at the stake
Does it prove that you're a saviour? Is it out of your control?
And I don't know where we belong

    General CommentI think its maybe about being told not to let hard times get to you, but the person in this song did, or it could be that they gave into somthing, I get that from "you might have listened, but you'll never learn"

    I need someone to elaborate.
    because my meaning is so patchy.
    I can't believe no one has commented.
    its an amzing song.
