And you can't deny that I'll be
The one mistake you'll carry forever
And you can't pretend now that
You thought I'd forget to notice you were gone

But the truth is, It's pointless

I'd make my own world somehow
Where I control who stays
You won't leave because
You won't know how to run away

I'll make you care that I am
Running here without you
I'll make you care, I'll make you care

You can't escape that I'm in your dreams
Like you swim in mine
And you live your whole life dreaming
Your dreams will be free of me

But the truth is, It's pointless

I'd make my own world somehow
Where I control who stays
You won't leave because
You won't know how to run away

I'll make you care that I am
Running here without you
I'll make you care, I'll make you care

But the truth is, It's pointless
You don't care,
But the truth is, It's pointless
You don't care
But the truth is, It's pointless
You don't care
But the truth is, It's pointless
You don't care, You don't care, You don't care

    General Commentthese lyrics are wrong...its "I'll make my own world somehow where i control who stays" not "where i control the stakes" and at the beginning, it doesnt start with "if" it starts with "and"...

    General CommentHands down, the best armor for sleep song. Beats out both albums. Should've been on Dream to Make Beleive.

    General CommentThis song is one of the best songs i have ever heard. this song got me into the band. its amazing.

    now to the meaning. two ideas
    1. its about a guy who loves a girl but he cant make her see him.
    2. its about a kid whos parents dont care.

    just the thoughts i got from it.
