"Alexithymia" as written by and Joseph Milligan (16580) Steven Arnold (16579)....
Don't try to wake me up
Even if the sun really does come out tomorrow
Don't believe anything you say
Anymore, in the morn, in the morning
Bricks to this old house are breaking
Steel would have weathered but now forlorning
It's alarming how loud the silence screams
No warn, no warn, no warning
Addictions fill the table where the family used to sit
And conversate
Conversate to the sounds
To the sounds of a record player
With it's jumping needle and the lights that grow dim over time

With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive

Are you where you thought you'd be
So beautiful and only twenty-three
Opposition rests in the hearts
With no, with no, with no opportunity
It's not that we don't talk
It's just no one really listens and honesty fades
Like a politician lost in the course
All smiles and no one remembers our names

With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive

Don't try to wake me up
Even if the sun really does come out tomorrow
Don't believe anything I say
Anymore, in the morn, in the morning

With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive

    General CommentI think it'sjust about slowly "over time" falling into isolation and sadness, which, can make it difficult to express emotions. Just not being satisfied ("are you really where you wanted to be") and trying to get your message across, yet no one listens. and that whole "there is more to living than being alive", coincidentally, i can't express the emotions i tie to this. it's so true when you don't feel like waking up anymore, no matter what, you just have no motivation to live or look up anymore. hence: down cast eyes...stephen did an amazing job articulating feelings that can't be easily expressed.
