Did you leave a light on for me, did you pray I'd find my way
Did you call out to me from the dark, did you really think I'd stay
Did you feel me when the hurt rolled in, did you roll your pretty eyes
Did that feeling rise up from within, did it take you by, take you by surprise

You know you're better off without me
Eyes like yours could always give you away
There were times when I needed you to be on my side
Through these eyes that world just died and a new one's born

Well you murder me with pink and blue, a possession in a box for you
Valentines and hand grenades, secret words and serenades
Symbionic mass destruction, we're directionless in vain
Can you feel it when it comes around, can you feel it when it takes you by surprise

You know you're better off without me
Eyes like yours could always give you away
There were times when I needed you to be on my side
Through these eyes now I sit and watch the end of the world

At the bottom of the ocean, I sit and wait alone
For the chance to breathe the life into my lungs
Now I feel like myself again
As I beat myself against you one more, one more time

    General CommentFavourite song off the new one so far. Give me chills.
    Anyway, it's about loss of faith.

    General CommentYeah your right. They were influenced by the movie "The Assasination of Jesse James" they got that western vibe

    General Commenti agree prally the best song off the new one.

    but, is reads more like these people don't want the same thing in the relationship. she appears to have higher hopes for him and the relationship (there were times when i needed you on my side).

    pink and blue? reference to babies.
    he wants them, she doesnt.

    he's not the commitment, kids type. he is a loner, feels like himself again.
