Hey can you hear my body falling on the floor
Hey can you see its not what I was looking for
Oh brother I'm wearing way too thin, what's this box I'm living in?
My body is broken

Oh what do we do now?
Do we wait and sweat it out?
Do we focus on the shiver?
(My whole worlds filling out)
I'm cold enough to see
That these walls aren't helping me
Do we focus on the shiver, the shiver?

And I think I've crossed this bridge before
But we ain't sailing silver any more
Oh brother I'm heading further down
Can you help me take this out?
Cause now I'm afraid that she won't dance for me now
The secret is spoken
My body's now broken
Why's everything broken?

Oh what do we do now?
Do we wait and sweat it out?
Do we focus on the shiver?
(My whole worlds filling out)
I'm cold enough to see
That these walls aren't helping me
Do we focus on this shiver, the shiver?

Oh what do we do now
Do we wait and sweat it out?
Now I'm afraid that she won't dance for me now
My secret is spoken
My body's now broken
Now everything's said

(My whole worlds filling out)
Oh what do we do now?
Do we wait and sweat it out?
Do we focus on the shiver?
(My whole worlds filling out)
I'm cold enough to see
That these walls aren't helping me
Do we focus on this shiver, the shiver?

    General CommentI think this song is about elliot minor struggling to make it as a band career-wise. Much of the lyrics would suggest this, such as... " what's this box I'm living in? " .. this line implies that because they probably aren't making that much money from the band that they're living poor.. in a " box "

    I think the 1st line " Hey can you hear my body falling on the floor "... implies giving up, like when your so tired of doing something and feel like your gettin nowhere.. like he's fainting because he's so overworked and lacking energy.... and the 2nd line " Hey can you see its not what I was looking for " .. suggests that he didn't anticipate the work that would be required to make a career out of something he has so much passion for.. like he's being turned off it because now something he used to do recreationally to relax and for fun has turned into his career and now its no longer relaxing, now its no longer fun.. now it's all work and perhaps not what he was expecting.


    " Oh what do we do now?
    Do we wait and sweat it out? "


    The 1st two chorus kind of ties all this up... its self-explainitory...Do they put up with this and keep going? ... Do they feel all they're hard work is paying off? ... Are they goin to follow their dream? .. even though it may not be exactly what they were expecting..
