You once were oh, so close
But I don't remember,
Where you are and who you know.
But come this September,
You will fly on your own

'Cause you got a letter
You must find, find your home
And it wont get much better

I try so hard, to fly
But my heart
Won't go very far
No, no
And my own two hands
Will start bleeding again
And floor will turn to,
To a hole in the ground

The plans that I make,
Roads that I take break
To holes that will go
Where I don't know
They are solid grounds illusions
That write themselves off
As perfectly normal solutions

Pollutions in my eyes,
My disguise will take me
Break me
Won't save me this time
There's a vision
But you wont save me this time
My decision for living
Isn't mine to decide and

You just seem oh, so far
Past the stars and past my heart
I can almost feel you and I start
To close my eyes and sing a song
I will keep singing 'cause Im wrong
But you were singing with me all along

I try so hard
To fly
But my heart
Won't go very far
No, no
And my own two hands
Will start bleeding again
And floor will turn to,
To a hole in the ground

Do not be alarmed
If I fall into the sun
If I fall
And my own two hands will start bleeding
And then they will lower me
In to, to a hole in the ground.

    General CommentIn the start of the song it sounds like he is talking about someone he knows going off to college

    "But come this September you will fly on your own, cause' you got a letter, you must find, find your home and it won't get much better"

    In the next lyric it sounds like he is talking about how he wants to go off to college, or visit this person who went to college, but he's insecure and his heart won't go very far.

    "I try so hard to fly, but my hear won't go very far"

    Then he starts calling about self harming.

    "And my own two hands will start bleeding again and the floor will turn to, to a hole in the ground"

    He basically talks about killing himself because he has all these things he wants to with his life, but he isn't able to because of his insecurities.

    In the rap verse

    "The plans that I make, roads that I take break to holes where I don't know they are solid ground, illusions that write themselves off as perfectly normal solutions"

    He's talking about how these things he wants to do seem so simple and easy to achieve, but they're not.

    "You just seem oh, so far past the stars and past my heart, I can almost feel you as I start to close my eyes and sing a song, I will keep singing cause' I'm wrong, but you were singing with me all along"

    He's talking about God, how he feels like he has lost his faith and that he is gone, that God gave up on him, but he was their the whole time.

    "Do not be alarmed, if I fall into the sun, if I fall, my own two hands will start bleeding and then they will loser me in to, to a hole in the ground"

    This part for me is quite confusing, but I think he's saying don't be surprised if gives up on life and kills himself, and the last verse talks about how he was being lowered into the ground after committing suicide.

    Overall I think this song talks about his hopes and dreams, and life itself how they seem so simple but he can't achieve them because of his depression and insecurities.
