This one dimension of myself has hurt the ones I love and I have come to shut you out and the God i fear above and i will make my way through the lines drawn on the floor it goes away so quickly now but I've been gone before and everything I do and everything I say they come in come conflict even as I sing this song today and I know I've let you down please know its not your fault because knowing you has made me halfway decent by default.

    General Commenti'm not 100% sure but i think the rest of the lyrics are something like:

    so let me ??(call?, come?) and ??(fall?) my sleep when i wake up it won't be me
    so let me ? and ? my sleep when i wake up it won't be me
    no it won't be me
    and everything i do and everything i say they come in conflict even as i sing this song today and i know i've let you down please know it's not your fault cause loving me has made me halfway decent by default
    so let me ? and ? my sleep when i wake up it won't be
    so let me ? and ? my sleep when i wake up it won't be me
    so let me ? and ? my sleep when i wake up it won't be

    i'm not too sure i'm at work so i didn't have the chance to replay it and write the lyrics down but thats what i heard. let me know what you think.

    General CommentYeah I agree with you Awake&dreaming...But i dont know what those question marks are either. Sometimes it sounds like "let me go and find my sleep" or "let me go and fall asleep" but the more i listen to it the more I think its 'find my sleep' ahhhhh...i hate when i dont know the lyrics!!

    General CommentThis one dimension of myself
    Has hurt the ones I love
    And I have come to shut you out
    And the God i fear above
    And i will make my way
    Through the lines drawn on the floor
    It goes away so quickly now but I've been gone before

    And everything I do,
    And everything I say,
    They come in come conflict even as I sing this song today,
    And I know I've let you down
    Please know its not your fault
    Because knowing you has made me halfway decent by default!

    So let me go and find my sleep,
    When I wake up it won't be me
    So let me go and find my sleep,
    When I wake up it won't be....

    No it won't be me!

    And everything I do,
    And everything I say,
    They come in come conflict even as I sing this song today,
    And I know I've let you down
    Please know its not your fault
    Because loving me has made me halfway decent by default!

    So let me go and find my sleep,
    When I wake up it won't be me
    So let me go and find my sleep,
    When I wake up it won't be.

    That's pretty much the lyrics to the whole song! The only thing I can't fully work out is the 'if I'm asleep'/'find my sleep' parts... but I think 'find my sleep' makes more sense... I think it's stupid how on the official AK site they don't have the full proper lyrics!!!! Esepcially so because this song absolutely f-ckin' rocks and I play it on repeat all day... great stuff.

    General CommentI think its about realising that you've could have been a better person and decided to wake up tomorrow and correct your mistakes.

    I love the half-time bit when the drums finally come in.

    General CommentThis song is about that little voice in your head, who you don't want to listen to, but you do. It tells you to push those who care about you away("There's one dimension of myself that's hurt the ones I love"). To generally be a jerk to everyone. Sometimes that voice is there, sometimes it goes away("It goes away so quickly now, but I've been gone before").
    It's about the artist trying to shut out that voice("I have come to shut you out"), because he has a reason to stop listening, that special someone who saw something special in him, and accepts him, loves him, even with his flaws("Loving me has made me halfway decent by default")

    At least, that's what it means to me, as I went through such a personal struggle
