we used to talk, we used to love each other but our connection died,
So we lay on beds in a hospital without correct drugs to make our souls touch again.

I am a ghost, I am nowehere yeah I am doomed.
Yes it's hard to hear but you swear it's the truth.


So I don't agree; my friends my hope my love,
They say that I'm "above this so don't worry boy,
'cos we are proud of you, yeah no matter what."

Oh oh, oh oh,
I'll understand what it takes to be a better friend and man.

And I just can't fall asleep; you are the drug I need.
Oh my history wont let me go, 'cos I'm exactly where I was 3 years ago.

This cut is wide open
And you dive right in to the heart of the bleed.
so I bide my time as you devour my insides
'cos I lost my guts when I was a boy.

I am ill, I am lost yeah I am doomed.
yes it's hard to hear cos I know it's the truth.

So I have to agree my friends my hope my love they say that I'm above this so don't worry boy, 'cos we are proud of you, yeah no matter what.

Oh oh, oh oh,
I'll understand what it takes to be a better friend and man

Oh oh, Oh oh,
Pictures are scarred by loss and failure,
I think I can perfect the art.

And I just can't fall asleep; you are the drug I need.
And my history wont let me go, 'cos I'm exactly where I was 3 years ago.
I'm exactly where I was 3 years ago.

Sing for, sing for the light we know that
exists at the bottom of your lost soul.
You've got to dig it out and fight your demons too.
I know it's hard but it's something you have to do.

Well I'll sleep well now, knowing my heart it wont ache for you

    My InterpretationI think it's about battling depression and losing the one person you depended on. Everyone around him is telling him that he's 'above it' and can fight it on his own but he doesn't want to accept the fact that he's depressed. He talks about how this has been ongoing for years and he can't stop clinging to the past but as the song progresses he starts to believe that there is hope for him and he finds the strength to let go of his history.
