I feel my hold on the ground
Take me under
Take me down

I am warm with surprise I know
It's the same every time

I am bold but I don't matter
What my name is
Where I rise

It's the same when I leave and when I arrive
I'm not allowed to feel alright

I will not lie in a row
Perfect little line
Get right

We are small and we don't know
Nothing changes
When you're gone

We are delusional
Poor animal

I am not your savior
Save me please
I am not your savior
Save me please

We are delusional
Poor animal

    General CommentI think it's making a comment on the meaning of life (or the meaninglessness of it). Like we're the saddest animals on the planet, because we make up these delusions of status and money and love, when in the end we die with nothing and the world keeps turning. We're the only animal on earth that takes medication for feeling sorry for ourselves or not being satisfied with life...we're just all around depressing ;) But that's what we have music for, to take the edge off!!!

    That and Ambien.
