Fucked up and beyong a wreck
Plastered to my bed - nothing daring in me that's left
Just a mutinas protest.
Story's old to the critical fold
You've heard it all before
Nothing new just this little girl - and this is now I'm feeling...

Knuckle bashed insomniac - my head takes another spin
Never been aware of the facts - eventual moral switch
Story's old to the critical fold
You've been sold it all before
Laid bare from all that I own and for nothing I could care less...

(chorus)
You stay up all night - to keep my eyes dry
You stay up all night - to make it easy when I cry
You stay up all night - to stop me feeling like I could die
You stay up all night - to be by my side

Fucked up beyond repair
Only fragments in my head - too numb to find a peice of myself
Leave it to someone else - guilty of treating apathy with the greatest empathy
Given up I'm completely carefree - yo I couldn't give a fuck less
- and my head feels tight
Like it's gonna burst - and my lungs feel light
- so tired of getting burnt... You stay up...

We all get a little fucked up sometimes
We all need someone to stay by our side..
We all get a little fucked up sometimes
We all need someone to make it easy
When we cry - don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go... Stay by my side.

    General CommentI heard it as so tired of getting hurt as opposed to getting burnt.

    but this song is beautiful. dealing with how one feels when they can't sleep and everything seems hopeless from all perspectives...but then having someone there for you, the shoulder to lean on.

    of course, there's a lot of interpretations to be taken from it. but that's just mine.
