You look like you're getting cold.
I know that you won't call on me.
You look like you're letting go.
I know it but instincts are telling me your fading out.
It's so hard without you. This wasn't my fault.

Tell me how am I suppose to live without you?
This is all that I remember before you changed...
You're stuck in a dream with next to nothing.
I'm all alone and nothings what it seems
without you next to me.

Sometimes it feels like home, so safe in the shade.
But when the summer fades, there's always something missing.
And now that I'm on my own, I know why you just...
just couldn't stop... and why you had to leave.
It's so hard without you. This wasn't my fault.

Tell me how am I suppose to live without you?
This is all that I remember before you changed...
You're stuck in a dream with next to nothing.
I'm all alone and nothings what it seems
without you next to me.

Never imagined I would feel so low.
I never imagined this would be so hard.
Never imagined I would feel so low.
I never imagined this would be so hard.

Tell me how am I suppose to live without you?
This is all that I remember before you changed...
You're stuck in a dream with next to nothing.
I'm all alone and nothings what it seems
without you next to me.

Tell me how am I suppose to live without you?
This is all that I remember before you changed...
You're stuck in a dream with next to nothing.
I'm all alone and nothings what it seems
without you next to me.

Tell me how am I suppose to live without you?
Suppose to live without you...

    Song MeaningAment revealed that he wrote "Nothing as It Seems" about his childhood growing up in a rural area of Northern Montana.[3] In one interview, he called it "a dark, heavy tale" and stated, "For me, it's a song about judgment and not always understanding what is going on with another person."[4] In another interview, he elaborated further:


    It's a little bit reflecting on where I came from...I grew up in really rural area in Northern Montana, and ["Nothing As It Seems" is] looking back at [that]. I think until two or three years ago, I looked back at my childhood as being a fairly utopian situation where I had the freedom to ride my bike around town when I was five years old, and my parents didn't have to worry about anybody taking me and killing me or whatever. In the last couple of years...there have been some things that have kind of allowed some darker things to come to the surface of my childhood, seeing things that I had kind of selectively forgotten for my own mental health or whatever. I had just seen Affliction and I had just read Nine Below Zero by this guy, Kevin Canty, all very kind of rural things that unearthed a lot of stuff. ["Nothing As It Seems"] is just kind of what came out. I'm just now starting to actually really analyze what I was talking about...because I still don't really have a grip on that.
