The mission has failed
And I am a hopeless mess
Spare me the details
Of how it all worked out
The damages eludes
Me with my own two hands

We did this ourselves
We built this ourselves
But where am I supposed to go running
When all of my friends out there are scared?
Can you feel on your own?
How does it feel on your own?

But I'm not going to bang against your throat
You know we're all at sea
I've seen it myself
I just want home

You told me to speak in tongues for you
"Puwelo anyabont, Havasu"
So how did I do?

    General Commenti'm not sure if this is totally correct, but this is what i found...
    The mission has failed
    And I am a hopeless mess
    Spare me the suspense
    Of how it all worked out
    The damages eludes
    Complete with my own two hands
    We did this ourselves
    We built this ourselves
    But where am I supposed to go running
    When all of my friends are now scared (?)
    Can feel on your own?
    Do you feel on your own?
    But I'm not gonna bang against your throat (?)
    (?)
    I slit it myself (?)
    I just want to (?)
    You told me to speak in tounges for you
    Puwelo Anyabont, Havasu
    So how did I do?
