Last night rolled over
Beside my bed
That sort of madness
Could leave us dead

Our eyes deceive
We were on fire
Mistook the love
And love desire

I still can't feel nothing
Just want to hold something
Tell me again what's real
Tell me again what to feel

I still can’t feel nothing
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what’s real
Tell me again what to feel

Why do you stay until you see blood
Why does the weight fall upon us
We're on the same side in the same war
Why stay 'till you see blood

Where are we that we digress
Long for love but then undress
Our hands no bounds
Our hearts detached
We grasp for all that will not last

I still can’t feel nothing
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what’s real
Tell me again what to feel

I still can’t feel nothing
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what’s real
Tell me again what to feel

Why do you stay until you see blood
Why does the weight fall upon us
Were on the same side in the same war
Why stay 'till you see blood

Fall
Falter on my chest
Feel
Failure to progress

Why do you stay until you see blood
Why does the weight fall upon us
Were on the same side in the same war
Why stay 'till you see blood

I still can’t feel nothing
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what’s real
(We're on the same side in the same war)
Tell me again what to feel

I still can't feel nothing
(Were on the same side in the same war)
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what's real
(Why stay 'till you see blood)
Tell me again what to feel

    General CommentI feel like this song is talking about the hopelessness and desperation that comes from trying to find love in one night stands. Both of the people involved are lonely and want to feel close to someone, to "hold something," as the song says, so even though they're hurting each other by doing this, they're technically "on the same side in the same war." The craving for physical contact and more importantly, for the feeling of love, drives them to endlessly pursue these ultimately-meaningless encounters, and leaves them feeling empty, as the lyrics describe.
    Given the album's recurring theme of hopelessness and love not just meaning sex, I think this interpretation fits in quite well.

    Song Meaning"This song is about attempting to overcome a mutual vice with someone you are in a relationship with. It seems humanity as a whole is prone to pulling each other down, and we usually assimilate with whom we choose to spend the most time with.

    We become callused to our own sin, immune to our shortcomings. We continue to indulge and soon it is a routine and part of our character. For the weak (all of us) we need something beyond ourselves to pull us out of the hole we have dug.

    Overcome." - Stephen Christian anberlinlyrics.tumblr.com June 2014

    General CommentI think this song is amazing and after hearing this and their other latest single I have hopes this new album will be much better than the tragedy that was their last album.
