Here I sit and wait throughout my days
Waiting for something, for my spirit to ascend
It's not that I so badly want to die
But at these times i struggle for desire to live

Each day it grows worse than the last
Function divorced from my body
As Saturn's Shadow falls across my soul
I'm powerless, until it's passed

And I'm trying, I'm trying to find a way
Out of the blackness of this tunnel at the end of the light
And I'm dreaming forever of the day
Dreaming of a time when life won't be this way
(Under Saturn's Shadow I am falling, Under Saturn's Shadow)

Webs invisible bind my spirit
In bondage to a force unseen
Like a candle, this gift my life
It burns away, it burns away

Until night's end sleep will not come to me
Then come restless, fitful dreams
Eternal slumber calls me to her arms
After I'm dead, will I still dream?

Sometimes I dream that I'm alive
Under the stars, under the sky
Then I awaken paralyzed to another day I cannot face
And I'm trying, I'm trying to find a way
Out of the blackness of this tunnel at the end of the light
And I'm dreaming forever of the day
Dreaming of a time when life won't be this way
(Under Saturn's Shadow I am falling, Under Saturn's Shadow)

    General CommentThis song isnt about depression, its about simply wanting a reason to be alive, I can relate.

    General CommentIt definately is about depression, I heard it come straight out of nick 13's mouth at a show. It's about being under depression(aka saturns shadow) and looking for a way out, or as the person before me said, a reason to be alive.

    General CommentIsn't depression and not having a reason to live pretty much the same thing? Oh god... I'm so jealous to people who have a reason to live, that's the only thing you need to be alive.
