There's something weird I wouldn't believe
I'm losing grip on my lifetime
I don't understand this wave I'm in

wrong place
no money
just responsibilities


My heart and my wish are so far away
I'm alone now
feeling the slow beat turning fast
no longer breathing
I'm returning in my own hell

I don't want to go
hold me into your arms so tight
you cannot see it
you'll see

In another world
hold me into your arms so tight
you cannot see
you'll see

There's something strange you've got to believe
It's taking away my sunshine
I don't understand this game I'm in

wrong face
no money
just responsibilities

    General CommentObviously, somthing dire has happened and she's been cast out. I think it's got somthing to do with love. It reminds me of someone fighting with a lover before they leave them alone, she's losing her mind and her possessions but she will get revenge: 'you'll see...'

    General CommentSounds like it might be about someone who's trying to follow their dream (of being a musician, perhaps) and it's not working out like envisioned at all. The stress of the disappointment, broken dreams and lack of money has caused that person to have a panic attack. "A Wave of Anguish" sums up perfectly how a panic attack feels, in my opinon.

    My InterpretationTo me this song can be summed up by the quote:

    "Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans"

    In other words, what they imagined their life to be has turned out very different to the life they actually live (could be in relation to their music careers, a romantic relationship etc. etc.)
