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 CommentI think it's about the melancholy, resigned feeling of knowing something bad or difficult is coming, and nothing you do will change that. There's nothing you can do to be prepared, and you just have to sit and wait. You have a bit of time to relax, but know you'll have to face it soon.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing that's to come; it could also be a happy, good thing that's coming to its end.

    Kind of also invokes feelings of ASMR (you know, that tingly-head feeling you get from hearing soft noises like typing or whispering, in a quiet setting) and not wanting it to end.

    ...if that makes any sense
