Over exposure of repetition blinds ambition slowly,
Frozen in motion, time is ticking by with every moment,
No one takes notice of their incandescent adolescences glowing,
Sweet songs won't last too long.

Breathe in, deep,
Stop holding your breath,
We need peace,
Closure and rest.

Older and older,
These wandering eyes never close up,
A funeral for failure, now,
Your final hour as a coward's over,
Sad songs won't last too long.

Breathe in, deep,
Stop holding your breath,
We need peace,
Closure and rest.

Tightrope stop walking the wire,
With lack of euphoria,
Tightrope stop walking the wire and fly.

Breathe in, deep,
Stop holding your breath,
We need peace,
Closure and rest.

Breathe in, deep,
Stop holding your breath,
We need peace,
Closure and rest.

Tightrope stop walking the wire,
With lack of euphoria,
Tightrope stop walking the wire and fly.

    General CommentTo me, it seems that this song is about letting go of everything that's holding you back. Of embracing what's to come, rather than being afraid of it.
    "A funeral for failure, now, Your final hour as a coward is over"

    It certainly does have that element feeling of death that alot of their songs have, but I tend to think of that in light of the phrase "In death, I am reborn." I may be wrong, but thats how I feel about this song.

    What really drives that home for me is the chorus.
    "Tightrope stop walking the wire,
    With lack of euphoria,
    Tightrope stop walking the wire and fly."

    Rise up and live your life.
