I lose my hold as all the pieces start to unfold,
And now I see where this started to get away from me.
Around my neck, pressure holds it's grip so tightly,
And I regret everything that I said.

But it feels alright,
I might as well be dead.
I do this every night,
You can't understand how hard it is to be in bad business.
But it feels alright,
I might as well be dead.
I do this every night,
And you can't understand, I'm twisted inside, I can't explain why.

I let go and then I lose control,
And I'm falling faster than I'd really like.
Down I go, further, out of control,
But it makes no sense to give up at this height.
I just need a sign to tell me I'm alright.

Locked in the waiting room, my time is coming soon.
There's no more life in me, I'm tied to catastrophe.
But it feels alright,
I might as well be dead.
I do this every night,
And you can't understand, I'm twisted inside, I can't explain why.

I let go and then I lose control,
And I'm falling faster than I'd really like.
Down I go, further, out of control,
But it makes no sense to give up at this height.
I just need a sign to tell me I'm alright.

No rewards, no excuses,
There's no life left in me.
No fortune and no favours,
There's no one here to save us.

I hide under the weight,
Because I'm so ashamed.
How could I be so wrong?
Where did this feeling come from?

I let go and then I lose control,
And I'm falling faster than I'd really like.
Down I go, further, out of control,
But it makes no sense to give up at this height.
I just need a sign to tell me I'm alright.

    General Commenti think most of the album(or the whole) is about feeling like disconected from the world and slowly from yourself and the things happening around this

    General CommentI could be wrong but a lot of the song sounds like someone struggling with a life of addictions.
