I wish there was something I could do for you
I wish there were some words I could say
But I know that you thought it out so well
And I know there is nothing I should say

Figured it all out, figured it all out

And nothing stands up to my ideology
And truth is built on shaky ground
Depression's all I get from philosophy
Do I really, do I really want the truth I found?
Who is to blame
The educated remains of dead scholars?

So tell me, what's the point of surviving?
Why do we try so hard to stay alive?
We know that nothing we do really matters
And it will wash away with time
It will wash away with time (wash away with time)

But there's a feeling I get when the amp is loud enough
There's a feeling I get when she smiles at me
And there's a feeling I get when staying awake with you
Stay awake with you
And that is all there is, then that is all I need
And someday you will see it's true

Body grows tired when no sleep can mend it
And time has chased and killed all of our friends
There is no place left in the sky for them to send us to
Just lay down and let the light come under the door?
Cover up our dreams, cover up the years
And you take, our bodies will make raspberries grow

    General Comment"And nothing stands up to my ideology"
    although this does make sense- i think it may be:
    "And nothing stands up to biology"

    mentioning a subject based on truths, ect.
    ideology doesnt really fit

    General Commentwhy is this song so damn good.

    'just lay down, and get black in the dirt'

    i assumed the dirt would 'cover up our dreams'

    General CommentDiscovery of the fake concept of life, we are far more material than we would like, I dont know. He cant find the point of keep going on, everything is temporary and will wash away eventually, but realizes life is far more wide than nihilistic side is trying to credit it for.

    I *think* those are the real lyrics, but I'm not totally sure. I LOVE this song. It's so nice because you can relate to it- it conveys a feeling of real helplessness and fatigue. I think it's very nice.

    General CommentI think there are a few corrections to these lyrics:

    and nothing stands up to my idealogy
    and truth is built on *shaky ground
    depression's all i get from philosophy
    and do i really, do i really want *the truth i've found?
    do i want the truth i've found?

    who's to blame?
    the educated remains *of dead scholars?

    so tell me what's the point of surviving
    why do we try *so hard to stay alive?
    we know that nothing we do really matters
    and it will wash away with time
    it will wash with time

    but there's a feeling i get when the *amp is loud enough
    and there's a feeling i get when she smiles at me
    and there's a feeling i get when i'm staying up late with you
    stay up late with you
    that is all there is
    and that is all i need
    and someday you will see *it's true

    the body grows tired when no sleep can mend it
    and *time has chased and killed all of our friends
    there is no place left in the sky for them to send us to
    just lay down and let the light *under (through?) the door
    cover up our dreams, cover up the years
    and you take, our bodies will make the raspberries grow.


    Hope that helps.
