it's crushing every bone
feeding my lonliness
i wish i had a rope from this hole
i know i don't
are you all alone, running like me?
all alone, running like me?


a stunning blow to the head
a weight on my lungs
has me gasping, fighting for breath
swallowing my tongue
are you all alone, running like me?
all alone, running like me?
all alone, running like me?
all alone, running like me?

i am too tired to give up
and i am too weak to fail
i'm thrashing and sobbing
and planning my sleep
you won't wake me
when every day is the same
you see i'm running
i've got to hurry up
hurry up, hurry up, hurry up

and i am too sick to stand up
my strength for this world is gone
i'm stumbling i'm tripping
my face in the dirt
you won't save me
when every day here is the same
are you all alone running like me?
all alone running like me?
all alone running like me?

    General CommentParticularly like the 'you won't save/wake me when every day here is the same' refrain used, and the jolt in the vocals at the beginning of the second and third verses, with the crying out of the words. The repeat of the 'chorus' as it were, is very drilling too.

    General CommentThe lines that stand out in this song for me are "I am too tired to give up, and I am too weak to fail."

    It almost seems contradictory, but it makes perfect sense: If you give up or fail now, you may not have the strength to try again, so failure is not an option. The sad part is, judging by the rest of the song, failure is exactly what's happening.
