And along came something sacred
I never knew what I found
The demons dance around, elated
They're hurting me

I put my wall up each day
You tear it down
I hide in my space
The space you found
And one of these days
I'll come unbound
The feelings I hate
Will finally drown

Falling awake in a nightmare
Images of horror abound
Thought I stumbled upon salvation
Hell I found

I put my wall up each day
You tear it down
I hide in my space
The space you found
And one of these days
I'll come unbound
The feelings I hate
Will finally drown

Well, I'll never be the same
It's the greatest lie ever told
No, I'll never be the same
I sold my soul

I put my wall up each day
You tear it down
I hide in my space
The space you found
And one of these days
I'll come unbound
The feelings I hate
Will finally drown

    My InterpretationI actually think this song is about being bullied on the internet. "I put my wall up each day" is a reference to facebook. "I hide in my space, the space you found" is talking about myspace. The lie in the song is telling everyone you are fine or that it doesn't bother you.

    Song MeaningI think I read an interview where Jon said that this is about a metaphorical wall people put around themselves when they feel ousted or just don't feel like dealing with people, a la Pink Floyd's "The Wall".
