Heaven can you hear me I am calling from a land line
I need a good connection I feel like I'm losing my mind
The day is just about to break I think it's safe to say, so am I

Can you bring my legs to walk even though they're shaking
Will you get my head to stop all the plans it's making
The clouds are just about to burst I think it's safe to say, so am I

Open the floodgates now, let the water come down

The monster in the closet, when the lights turned on
Is just a jacket on a hanger and the fear is gone
And the world keeps turning, sun keeps burning
We are the lost and found, gonna make it through another day

Can you train my mouth to shut when I feel like talking
Get my ears to open up and let a little love in
Lately I'm a ticking bomb and so are you and we are here together

Can you set my heart to beat no matter what I'm feeling
Will you take the wheel and drive, for miles I've been dealing
The day is just about to break I think it's safe to say, so am I

Open the floodgates now, let the water come down

The monster in the closet, when the lights turned on
Is just a jacket on a hanger and the fear is gone
And the world keeps turning, sun keeps burning
We are the lost and found, gonna make it through another day

I'm gonna hold it down with the lost and found

The monster in the closet, when the lights turned on
Is just a jacket on a hanger and the fear is gone
And the world keeps turning, sun keeps burning
We are the lost and found
And the world keeps turning, sun keeps burning
We are the lost and found, gonna make it through another day

gonna make it through another day

And the world keeps turning, sun keeps burning
We are the lost and found, gonna make it through another day

    My InterpretationI think this song is simply about growing up and losing your innocence.

    "The monster in the closet, when the lights turned on
    Is just a jacket on a hanger and the fear is gone
    and the world keeps turning, sun keeps burning
    We are the lost and found, gonna make it through another day"

    Children are often scared of things like the dark and "monsters" under their bed or in their closet. But when you grow up you realize why those fears are just in your head and there is no logical basis for those kinds of fears. And life goes on.

    "Open the floodgates now, let the water come down"

    Basically opening the floodgates is metaphorical to becoming an adult/growing up and the water is a metaphor for all the pressure, hardships, etc. that comes with it.

    "Heaven can you hear me I am calling from a land line
    I need a good connection I feel like I'm losing my mind
    The day is just about to break I think it's safe to say, so am I"

    He is losing his mind because life used to be so simple as a kid and when you're an adult everything gets so damn complicated.

    "Can you train my mouth to shut when I feel like talking
    Get my ears to open up and let a little love in
    Lately I'm a ticking bomb and so are you and we are here together"

    Again, it's about growing up. When you're young and immature you just say whatever is on your mind. When you grow up, you know that some things shouldn't be said and also, you should learn to listen more.

    "Can you set my heart to beat no matter what I'm feeling
    Will you take the wheel and drive, for miles I've been dealing
    The day is just about to break I think it's safe to say, so am I"

    Not too sure on this one but I think it's about just moving on and taking care of responsibilities no matter what you're feeling-depressed, tired, etc. When you're young you have no huge responsibilities because usually an adult will take care of it or something.


    Great song. So glad that Eve 6 is finally back!

    General CommentFor the 'world keeps turning and the sun keeps burning" it means something scientifically. for my earth and space class we need to figure out the two word answer to that phrase above. but everything i can think of just doesnt fit.
