I'm waking up in night terrors
Can't stop the future, it keeps pushing me ahead
I feel the weight of the world crushing down on me
Time seems so linear; decisions seem so absolute

Yeah, it's a harsh realm
Yeah, it's a harsh realm
Don't abandon me
Don't abandon me

There's a million things to get done today
I can't calm down, I can't think straight
You give a little bit of time to everyone you meet
What do you save for yourself?
How much money do you need to gain yourself a sense of security?

Yeah, it's a harsh realm
Yeah, it's a harsh realm
Don't abandon me
Don't abandon me

    General Commenti think its basically about people being stressed the fuck out when they don't realize they can pull themselves out of it. "how much money do you need to gain yourself a sense of security?" this is just from the top of my head btw, i could be missing the whole point altogether.

    General Commenti think this song is about going through tough times, or stressful time. asking not to abondon them at times like this, refurring to someone that helps a you through a lot.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. Chuck Ragan and Brian Fallon's cover from Revival Tour is great too. But the original is perfect.

    It's pretty self explanitory. It's about hard times, feeling alone, not wanting to feel alone.
