"Nerve Damage" as written by Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Jude Cole, Kevin Rudolf and Jason Wade....
I see through your clothes
Your nerve damage shows
Trying not to feel
Anything that's real
You're losing control

Meltdown's looking for a new clown
Living in a world that's make believe
Used up burned out always got a hand out
Ain't nothing here for free
Now you're hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Let go let it be

New circus freak
With black eyes that speak
Life takes it's toll
You push and it pulls
You're losing control

Meltdown's looking for a new clown
Living in a world that's make believe
Used up burned out always got a hand out
Ain't nothing here for free
Now you're hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Let go let it be

I see thru your clothes
Your nerve damage shows
You're losing control

Meltdown's looking for a new clown
Living in a world that's make believe
Used up burned out always got a hand out
Ain't nothing here for free
Now you're hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Let go let it be

Hell bent looking for a god send
Kicking down the door waiting for a sign
Right side turning on the bright side
That might not be what you find
Wake up move on nothing left to prove
Got nightmares in your dreams

    General CommentI think it's kind of like the singer is describing someone he's trying to convince love to. She's kind of the plastic crowd, who hides behind clothing etc, and maybe she's been hurt before, so she's jaded, and is scared of real love.

    Last verse kind of reinforces this, like she's looking for a sign to prove for certain that it's real.

    IDK, just my interpretation.

    General Commentthis song is very different from all lifehouse songs,but it's still great!i don't really understand the lyric,though.it seems like it's about someone who has lots of problems in his life and wants to forget them(trying not to feel anything that's real),and,um...no one is willing to help,maybe??(aint nothing here for free),and he feels like a freak...

    ok,so i don't get it.can someone help?

    General CommentI agree with AznTiger, "new clown" is suggestive of overdone make-up which plastic girls do, she's the old clown, and now she's not one of the crowd anymore. "hanging on the edge of tomorrow" makes me think that she's living for the reasons, and waiting on something that's never going to happen, but she can't see another way. It's not just love, it's like her whole personality, that's what I'm feeling from it...
