BROKEN PEOPLE, HOLLOW AND FEEBLE
THEY'RE ROLLING UP THE HILL
ROTTEN INGRATE, STUPID MISTAKE
THEY'RE ROLLING UP THE HILL

WISHING WELLS AND COCKLE SHELLS
THEY SWIM THROUGHOUT MY HEAD
MY EYES ARE CLOSING SLOWLY AS I'M LOWERING MY HEAD

WANTING AND GETTING, SILENT SETTING
THEY'RE ROLLING UP THE HILL
ROBBING, BURNING, WASTED LEARNING
THEY'RE ROLLING UP THE HILL

WISHING WELLS AND COCKLE SHELLS
THEY SWIM THROUGHOUT MY HEAD
MY EYES ARE CLOSING SLOWLY AS I'M LOWERING MY HEAD

BREAKING IN, IN MY EYES
I CAN'T SEE LIKE THIS
I CAN'T LET GO, PLEASE HELP ME DOWN
I CAN'T BE LIKE THIS
SEEING THEM, THEM ALL AROUND
HOW CAN THEY BE SO SWEET

THEY PANIC SO, JUST HOLD THEM DOWN
I COULD LIVE LIKE THIS
I'M CLOSING IN, HEY, ALL AROUND
I COULD LIVE LIKE THIS
HEARING THEM IN MY HEAD
HOW CAN THEY BE SO SWEET

THEY'RE ALL AROUND
HEY HEAR ME SAY THEY'RE ALL AROUND
THEY'RE SO SWEET

THEY'RE ALL AROUND
THEY'RE SO SWEET

    General Commenthmmm...i believe this song is about people who are "broken, hollow and feeble" and have problems but they are still "sweet"...still willing to go on. and the person who sees all these sweet people can't be like that, she/he is broken and can't see the good, sweet side of life. and he/she is surrounded by these people who have hope and he/she is jealous and cannot have that hope.
