Are those things not much correct today
And be part of the bad
Things towards me with no mitigating
Circumstances here

Half the world is watching me
Hoping that I’ll let go

Well, for nine days
A small moth has
Tried to escape
Our bedroom

A silhouette behind
The milky white drapes
Fluttering in vain
With dreams of freedom

Half the world is watching me
Hoping that I’ll let go
Half the world is watching me
Try to find my way home

Take your loss across the world
Kissing lips as cold as silver
Never love too much too soon
Faces we forget to include
I know you have not been well
And it’s much too late to repel
Do not know the half of it
Can only wish that you will forget

Are those things not much correct today
And be part of the bad
Things toward me with no mitigating
Circumstances so

Took her down with me to see the sight
Before the morning light
From my willful way upon her breast
Encompassed, not impressed

    General Commenti think its about what the ppl wants of us, how the society influences force us to be in one line, if you leave the line, then you are doing the wrong things. I think what they are saying is that we are free and we can choose, even if half the world are watching us. When they sayd:
    "Are those things not much correct today
    And be part of the bad...
    Took her down with me to see the sight
    Before the morning light"
    for me is like if he wants to show her how real life is, how it feels to do what you really want to do, not what do the other ppl wants from you, hes didnt take her to the bad he took her to the right, before she goes to the line... i think its a reflecting song, anyway, maybe im wrong... with me we'll never know xD at leats if you drink coffee with Jonas in a rainy day, siting anywhere listening to the drums :P
