Floating (inatankofhatredfuel) with nowhere to hide
unspoken (10000thousandthoughtsanhourandrising) twist back inside

How did we get here

Life don't belong here

Feel like I just never tried
to find a way back to the outside
it stops me from breathing
kills all the dreaming

TALKING TO YOU FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF A WALL
IN MY MIND AND IT'S CLEAR THAT YOU'RE NEAR TO ME.
THINK I FOUND A WAY TO UNDERSTAND WHY I COULDN'T SEE WHAT
WAS HAPPENING THE FEAR OVERCAME ME.TOOK A TRIP ON THE INSIDE
I TOOK A TRIP ON THE INSIDE I TRY TO HOLD ON 'TIL THIS FEELING
IS GONE.BREAK THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE NEED TO BREAK THROUGH
TO THE OTHER SIDE OF EVERYTHING...

I just can't lay down and die
it takes a lifetime to understand why
it seems that you need me
but you don't seem to hear me

Talking to you from the other side of a
wall...sickshitsickshitsickshitsickshitsickshitsick shit....

    General Commentyeah,i found it too as barriers,but it`s the song that made me fall inlove with anathema..it`s always pushing me forward,so that no matter how much i find this piece of shit life too fucking hard to live,i listen to this song and calms me down...
    it has this great deal of energy,giving you the idea that there is someone,anyone that cares about you and that person is worth live for...no matter what happens in your own life...

    General CommentCorrect title is Barriers. I think it's along the same line as Floyd's the wall. Meaning a barrier between himself and others (talking to you from the other side of a wall in my mind), sort of an anxiety thing (the fear overcame me) and his struggle to overcome it (I just can't lay down and die). That's the impression I get anyway.

    Lyric Correction (Breaking Over The) Barriers


    Floating with nowhere to hide
    Unspoken twist back inside

    How did we get here?
    Life don't belong here

    Feel like I just never tried
    To find a way back to the outside
    It stops me from breathing
    Kills all the dreaming

    Talking to you from the other side of a wall in my mind
    And it's clear that you're near to me
    I think I found a way to understand why I couldn't see what was happening
    The fear overcame me
    Took a trip on the inside, I took a trip on the inside
    I try to hold on until this feeling is gone
    Break through to the other side, I need to break through to the other side
    Of everything that is hurting you

    I just can't lay down and die
    It takes a lifetime to understand why
    It seems that you're near me
    But you don't seem to hear me

    My InterpretationContinuing the album history..
    In this one the main character speak to someone maybe a love.. or maybe he speaks to all the world...
    and after the begin of the search of catharsis in "underworld" now looks like he has felt in a dream and ask for someone who can hear his thoughts because he begin to realise that he is trapped in his mind and maybe the fear is taking over his mind
