[Chorus]
Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

[Verse 1]
Wait around here long enough you'll see
Another junction, line up and lay down for me
You fall wonderfully
If I question everything you say
Another answer crumbles the birth of my day
It's when you appear

[Pre-Chorus]
You, calling out a name
You, swimming to me through a dream

[Chorus]
Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

[Verse 2]
Every siren, often my lullaby
Every heartbeat functioning, thrown to the night
I'm quenched in your light
See the floor rising through a dream
Forgotten thoughts lost in a memorable theme
And soaked to the skin

[Pre-Chorus]
You, calling out a name
You, swimming to me through a dream

[Chorus]
Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

[Bridge]
I wanted life to be that
I wanted life to be that

[Pre-Chorus]
You, calling out a name
You, swimming to me through a dream

[Chorus]
Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

[Chorus]
Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

    General CommentI might be totally wrong about this one and will probably get some slack for it, but this is how I perceive this song...

    "Wait around here long enough you'll see
    Another junction, line up and lay down for me"
    The person is very negative, believing that things always goes wrong for them. "You fall wonderfully" God takes the fall (the blame) for their hardship.

    "If I question everything you say
    Another answer crumbles the birth of my day
    It's when you appear"
    He is constantly questioning God's existence, but everyday something in his life crumbles that disbelief.

    "You, calling out a name
    You, swimming to me through a dream"
    God appears in a vision, calling him to belief.

    "Life is a fear of falling through
    All the cracks"
    But he is scared and can't help his negativity about life, worrying about everything.

    "Every siren, often my lullaby
    Every heartbeat functioning, thrown to the night"
    Again this describes his fear, when he goes to sleep every night, worried if he will awaken. But still God protects him "I'm quenched in your light"

    "See the floor rising through a dream
    Forgotten thoughts lost in a memorable theme
    And soaked to the skin"
    God speaks to him again in a dream, awakens him from his nightmares and fears, and soon they are forgotten.

    "Life is a fear of falling
    Life is a fear of falling through
    All the cracks
    I wanted life to be that"
    He wanted life to be about fear and worry, but he has found enlightenment.
