Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

The first thing that I notice, the radio went dim
I feel the pressure rising as the water's creeping in
Rushing through the window in a flood of images
Is this my imagination, can you tell me if it is?

Drowning in the static of a thousand whispered doubts
I need to break the silence before my oxygen runs out
So can you hear me?
"Can you hear me?"

As I call in to this dark and lonely passage, am I getting it through?
Because all I want to do is get a message from me to you

The clock is running backwards, the roof is caving in
I can't see where I'm going, and I can't go where I've been
It's like I'm out there somewhere in the some distant memory
Sitting in the corner watching my life on TV

Fighting catatonic to be heard above the noise
And all that I have left is the echo of my voice
Can you hear me?
"Can you hear me?"

As I call in to this dark and lonely passage, am I getting it through?
Because all I want to do is get a message from me to you

Peace be the day dawning
Light in the winter I am falling

"Can you hear me? Wherever you are?
The clouds are lifting, the sun is breaking through
We are coming out of the darkness
We are coming into a new world"

As I call into this dark and lonely passage, am I getting it through?

In closing the show, another crash on our roads
There's broken glass on the ground, but no body's been found
This is Donovan Earl, until next time you're on Truth of the World

    General CommentI think it will be better if it's "if I call into this dark and lonely passion.."

    General CommentSuch an amazing song. Although it's fairly obvious that "Max" has crashed his car in to the water it can be interpreted as feeling helpless and giving your all to get a message across to people who don't seem to want to hear it.
    I think the first verse could be about feeling like he's being heard and he can't believe that people are actually listening. His window of opportunity is open and people are rushing in to hear what he has to say, and he can't believe it's happening.
    And then people start ignoring him...
    The chorus is his window of opportunity caving in and he's trying to call out hoping someone will hear him.
    Second verse is him trying to think back to where it went wrong, but it's pointless and he ends up at a loss. He gets delusional in his thinking in the end winds up with nothing but himself and his message.
    "Peace be the day dawning" is obviously him begging for the new day to bring him some sort of resolve, "Light of the winter I am falling" ...have no idea with that one...
