You look for love
Though eyes of strangers
Pitiful you go away
I think it's time to reconsider
In suspense you stay

I think my mind is slippin'
Know I'm trippin' feels like I am
Losing myself

I wish I held your live from dreaming
(soul I wish I had life)
I wish I held your live from dreaming
(soul I wish I had life)

In your mind
You're my puppet
I hope the strings
Give way in confused
Depths of realit
I wonder if you'll stay
I think my mind is slippin'
Know I'm trippin' feels like
I am Losing myself
I wish I held your live from dreaming
(soul I wish I had life)
I wish I held your live from dreaming
(soul I wish I had life

I own your dreams
In time, you'll see

I think my mind is slippin'
Know I'm trippin' feels like I am
Losing myself
I wish I held your live from
dreaming (soul I wish I had life)
I wish I held your live from dreaming
God damn I wish -- I'm dreaming

    General CommentI think that "Grasp" is about having a friend in your life who's going through tough times. So you try to help this person out, but eventually, you're living and breathing for this person, or in this case, dreaming. This causes commotion in the friendship, and you're trying to hold on to this person, but they keep on taking, or something like that.

    General CommentI think it's about someon who thinks that his/her friend has control over them, and that person wishes it was true, but it isn't.

    General CommentI agree with dgwilson, the song is about having a kind of master/puppet relationship with a friend or a loved one, and it's in spite of anothers pain that you go through all of this for them.

    I love the way this song starts out, Morgan is an amazing drummer.
