This letter's sealed with a kiss
Sent with a promise
Of a better life with a better view
I'd rather move than watch you

Damn the gods with things from a life now lost
We can patch this up the boat's not sinking
We're still afloat and we're singing
All I want

Is a little place of my own where I can rest my head
Drink up darling
We can save this â??till the morning
When we have clear eyes and the peace of mind to work this out

You need a raise? you haven't slept in how many days?
The feelings creeping up that you're never going to win
You have to remember we are rising
We are the ones back to our roots

We are the dust that lies in you
We are the ones in too deep
We are the ones we are

    General CommentI think that this song is about the "weight of the world", the struggles of life, getting to be too much to bear. The song is just kind of about trying to make compromises, to plead with the world, just to find your own place (physically , mentally, and spiritually).

    General CommentYeah. I just see it as having so much on your mind.
    And you just want a place of your own to rest your head.

    General Comment"All I want
    All I want
    Is a little place of my own where I can rest my head"

    Best lyrics off the new cd, I think. Taken literally, there's nothing I can agree with more.

    General CommentAll previous oppinions are correct...

    I will add that it's a ballad of frustration. In this society it takes SOOOO much, just to achive what is God given and so basic for all to have:

    food and shelter...

    General Commentthis is such a good song!
    its about how much you have on your plate in life. you have so much to do and you just want to rest your head.
    i love when hes like "you need a raise? you havent slept in how many days?"
    i see that as a person working so hard and not getting a lot of money.
    its about sometimes just having to take a break and forget for awhile.
