I've been watching you for some time
Your handshake's weak
And you only smile
In the moments when
Everybody else is crying

You consider life as a threat
So you watch TV
For a quick escape
But everything you see
Leaves you with no need for trying

And it's like waiting for a thief
With your door right open.
Hoping everything's gonna get stolen

There's no limit to your complaints
Nothing's good enough
To make your day
All the stars are stuck
Against your luck, you're helpless

The world is spinning too fast for you
There're million things
You'd like to do
The time is never right
So you put it all down for later

And it's like waiting for a thief
With your door right open.
Hoping everything's gonna get stolen
Then maybe, just maybe
You'll be free

See, I've been watching you for some time
Your handshake's weak
It's just like mine
Only difference that
I'm better at pretending...

    General CommentI guess that song is about someone who's afraid to live their life...('There're million things
    You'd like to do
    The time is never right
    So you put it all down for later')...They also may be feeling kinda trapped, with some engagements and duties that make their life boring and annoying for them ('Hoping everything's gonna get stolen
    Then maybe, just maybe
    You'll be free')...so they're just waitng idly for the change but no change will come until they do something on their own and take their life in their hands.
