I can't sleep
I can't eat
If i give them what they want, then will
They just let me be
Who i am
I'm not like them
I'm sick of nodding my head at the things that i can't stand.
This is it!
Oh my friends
I've tried so hard but i can not pretend.

Cross my heart
Hope to make it out alive
Their helping hands
Look more like suicide
If i don't make it out
Remember that i tried
Cross my heart
Hope to breath this time

Day by day
Night by night
I sat alone with pen and page
Trying to do whats right
God i pray
Shed some light
'Cos if i burn i want to burn out bright

Cross my heart
Hope to make it out alive
Their helping hands
Look more like suicide
If i don't make it out
Remember that i tried
Cross my heart
Hope to breath this time

You make all things new
And no one needs you like i do
You know i do

You make all things new
And no one needs you like i do
I need you

Cross my heart
Hope to make it out alive
Their helping hands
Look more like suicide
If i don't make it out
Remember that i tried
Cross my heart
Hope to breath this time
x2

    Song MeaningIt sounds like a Christian struggling in this world, he's trying to hard to stay away from temptations and sin. It also sounds a lot like he pretends around his *wordly* friends, he pretends he is something he not... going along with their ideas and jokes although he hates it "I'm sick of nodding my head at things I can't stand." Then towards the end after he expresses his anger/pain and fear of not making it out alive, he calls out to the Lord, stating that he needs him to make it through this.

    Really great song, surprised no one has commented yet. I just got their album yesterday, definitely worth the money. :)
