I see those empty spaces wonderin' round and round
Talkin to themselves, talkin' to the ground
We all know we're 6 feet from our grave
But do you really care if your soul is saved

What's that you say?
I know your young and I know your not afraid
What's that you say?
But when it's time to go, is that what you'll say?
I'm not afraid
I fear the thought and you finally realize
All alone in your head, all alone inside
What's that you say?

I knew a man who was hanging on the edge
Fallin to his knees with every word he said
And then one day the miracle took
If not that empty space would have swollowed him up

What's that you say?
I know your young and I know your not afraid
What's that you say?
But when it's time to go, is that what you'll say?
I'm not afraid
I fear the thought and you finally realize
All alone in your head, all alone inside
What's that you say?

I don't wanna think about it anymore
I don't wanna think about it anymore

I know sometimes it's hard to read between the lies
But there's a truth that sanity denies
Some people say that it's all left up to chance
But you can't undermine what you don't understand

What's that you say?
I know your young and I know your not afraid
What's that you say?
But when it's time to go is that what you'll say?
I'm not afraid
I fear the thought and you finally realize
All alone in your head, all alone inside
What's that you say?

    General CommentI think this song is about being young and everything now, but you really need to look ahead and think about your future. But people my age (teenagers) "don't wanna think about it anymore" so "when it's time to go" it'll be too late to try and change things, how you acted or what you did, or whatever. Yes, you're not afraid, do you really care if your soul is saved?
    So basically about what it'll be like when we look back before dying and see that all the stuff we avoided thinking about really matters.
