Standing in front of you
They fade into the walls
And leave behind nothing
Nothing at all

And no I don't understand
How they forget
The sun will just pass us by
And take what they can get
And no I don't understand
How weightless they must be
Without feeling
Without feeling

The grass beneath my fingernails
And they tear through your skin
Leaving no signs of pain
No wounds to mend

No I don't understand
How they forget
The sun will just pass us by
And take what they can get
And no I don't understand
How weightless they must be
Without feeling
Without feeling
Without feeling

And no I don't understand
How they forget
The sun will just pass us by
And take what they can get
And no I don't understand
How weightless they must be
Without feeling
Without feeling
Without feeling

    General CommentThe drums and music use in this song is so awesome and the lyrics are so great. "How weightless they must be, Without feeling" This song has become an anthem for me and really, how can a person be a person without having deep emotion and their own feelings. This song made me feel like someone knew what i was feeling when events in your life such as betral and heartbreak occur and the people seem so heartless and without love. Great song, absolutely marvolus.

    General CommentUmmm... I think that she actually says "I'm grasping with fingernails as they tear through your skin" not "the grass beneath my fingernails..." Beautiful song! But then again, what song of their's isn't?

    General Commenti agree with silverofme, i think "im grasping with fingernails as they tear through your skin" is more correct.

    General Comment"and no i don't understand how weightless they must be without feeling." interpreting this - in a manner as described in 'viscosity vs velocity" from girl, interrupted by susanna kaysen - is such a beautiful experience. you know a song is good when you can not only enjoy the way the sounds are put together, but also when you enjoy the way the knot is tied when the vocals added in is absolutely beautiful. I suppose if you have not read that book you will not understand the way i tore that particular lyric apart on my head. just know that this song is deeper than you think. five stars for my favourite azure ray song.
