Set it up, this is what I'm talking about,
Let me do my thing, here we go.

Waking up, I feel such a sense that my life has succumb to rely,
A cross between where I live my life and where I'm really at.

How do we get so close without us knowing where we would be?
And how do we get so old without us knowing we can't get out?

Needle leads thread, I see no point in flying alone this time,
We have come for what we're owed, I'm bleeding it dry.

How long have we both lived for the same style,
I would die for what I can do, I would die for what you can't,
Why can't we just believe in taking it so far,
That our feet don't touch the ground?

How do we get so close without us knowing where we would be?
And how do we get so old without us knowing we can't get out?

Needle leads thread, I see no point in flying alone this time,
We have come for what we're owed, I'm bleeding it dry.

Can you feel how close we are? Reach out and grab it,
One of the shapes afraid of us, I'll bury the past,
This mistake won't be the end of us,
Stare into nothing, we are alive.

How do we get so close without us knowing where we would be?
And how do we get so old without us knowing we can't get out?

Needle leads thread, I see no point in flying alone this time,
We have come for what we're owed, I'm bleeding it dry.

    General CommentCorrections in the chorus and in the female vocals definitely welcome, although it might be a little while before I see them.

    General Commentguest vocalist is Allison Greene

    Chorus to me sounds like:

    "the oldest road, i see no point, in flying low this time
    we have come for what we're owed, im bleeding it dry"

    Greene's part to me is:

    "Can you feel how close we are? Reach out and grab it,
    One of the shapes afraid of us, I'll bury the past,
    This mistake won't be the end of us,
    Stare into nothing, we are alive"

    General CommentI think it is "the oldest road, i see no point, in flying alone this time" instead of "low this time".

    General CommentThanks for the suggestions, I just kind of strung those bits together at the last minute so they weren't blank.

    General CommentThe chorus sounds to me like he says "May I be frank? I see no point in flying alone this time..."
