The fear sets in of knowing how short our time is, the shortness of a stride,
Not a single excuse to prove that we were meant for this,
Everything starts to spin all at once.

And if you hear something strange in my voice, oh, it's conviction,
Detest my words, they have no ill meaning.

Run your fingers back and forth over this sheet of paper.

So where's the heart? It's not coming through.
Who is this for? So where's the heart?

And if you hear something strange in my voice, oh, it's conviction,
Detest my words, they have no ill meaning,
We're caught between the storms that never mattered.

Oh, dear puppet, wake up and cut the strings before the last show,
I believe that this is in your blood, by all means take your place,
Put yourself into this letter, we've all had it alright, we dropped the ball.

    General CommentThe fear sets in,
    Of knowing how short our time is,
    Show yourself a side, not a single excuse to prove,
    That we were meant for this,

    Everything starts to spin, only once, only once.

    And if you hear something strange in my voice,
    Oh it’s conviction, contest my words,
    They have no real meaning.

    Everything goes back and forth,
    Over this sheet of paper
    Everything goes back and forth
    Over this…

    (screaming ??)

    And if you hear something strange in my voice,
    Oh it’s conviction, contest my words,
    They have no real meaning.

    We're caught between the stars that never matter.

    ???

    I believe that this is in your mind,
    By all means take your pride, take your pride.

    Whats that sound, its you __ ???

    General Commenti think its:

    "show yourself a side"

    and it might be "they have NO WAY OF meaning"

    and "run your fingers back and forth"

    General CommentWell meaning doesn't make sense though. Real fits in a lot better. God I wish he'd just release these lyrics.

    General Commentpretty sure it's "ill meaning", but I think the words prior to that are "to test my words", not "detest". either way, nice job. and this song is absolutely amazing.

    General Commentin the little booklet that comes in the cd it says that the lyrics are:

    "the fear sets in of knowing how short our time is.
    the shortness of stride not a single excuse to prove that we were meant for this.

    everything starts to spin all at once.
    if you hear something strange in my voice
    oh its conviction, detest my words they have no ill meanings."


    just to clear things up:]
