i hate to repeat myself but all i can do is ask the same old questions
life changes so much in the blink of an eye sometimes you've got to catch up with it
half a year spent in black
are we riding the tails of a heart attack?
we come and go, we're free to roam
i don't think i'm ever coming back
so go ahead retrace your steps yet again
to find a way to keep every heart beating loud
roses mark a box that's buried underground
you can't trash determination
breathe all the air back into your exhaustion
brandish uneven teeth to smile
just wear it out, wear it through
then all these words coming spilling out to you in this disillusion
if this year continues how it's been
you're likely to never see my face again
to find a way to keep every heart beating loud
until then live it just for what it's worth
and know one day it will come crashing down
i'm told that's life somehow
no more funerals, no more fire and i'll miss all of you
until the day i die
have you found your way out of being afraid of sleeping sound
and getting stirred awake as the night gives up
like the dust that's settled to the ground
where we walk on burned names until we all fall down
have you found your way out

    General CommentObviously about how hard the past year or so has been. Funeral after funeral. Death seems to be a reoccurring theme.

    "If this year continues how its been, you're likely to never see my face again"
    I believe is referring to his own death.

    Then towards the end i think it can be interpreted in a mainly 2 ways:

    1: He is afraid to sleep because he thinks his own death is near and might not wake up.

    2. He doesn't want to go through the horror of waking up in the middle of the night to a phone call to news of a death of a friend.

    He is pleading to find a way to sleep sound. Great song which I believe to be directly connected to "Resuscitation of the Year"
