In cases such as these I'd like a hand
Don't wake me up without a master plan
With silence I'm becoming fragile
Don't you understand?
When things that once were beautiful
Are bland

And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Haven for us

In truth there is no better place to be
Than falling out of darkness still to see

Without a premonition
Could you tell me where we stand?
I'd hate to lose this light
Before we land

And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Haven for us

Before we let euphoria
Convince us we are free
Remind us how we used to feel
Before when life was real

And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Haven for us

    General Comment"Before we let euphoria
    Convince us we are free
    Remind us how we used to feel
    Before when life was real"

    I believe this is the key part of the song because of the change in the music itself.

    The entire song is about freedom, but also choosing slavery - Not wanting truth.

    "When things that were once beautiful are now glad" - Happiness isn't the same thing as beauty, that sometimes the regular, or even the ugly, leads us to happiness.

    "In truth there is no better place to be
    Than falling out of darkness still to see" - There's no better place to be then when first coming to see truth, that truth itself when it's first illuminated is the brightest.

    "And when I feel like I can feel once again
    Let me stay awhile
    Soak it in awhile"

    I think this part is important because it's talking about wanting to cling to normality, which isn't always the same thing as truth.
