I want God to come and take me home
'Cause I'm all alone in this crowd
Who are you to me? Who am I supposed to be?
Not exactly sure anymore
Where's this going to? Can I follow through?
Or just follow you for a while?

Does anyone ever get this right?
I feel no love

Ain't no confusion here, it is as I feared
The illusion that you feel is real
To be vulnerable is needed most of all
If you intend to truly fall apart

You think the worst of all is far behind
The vampire of time and memories has died
I survived. I speak, I breathe,
I'm incomplete
I'm alive - hooray!
You're wrong again
'Cause I feel no love

Does anyone ever get this right?

Does anyone ever get this right?
I feel no love, I feel no love

    My InterpretationHave you ever been in a reletionship and felt you can give no love?
    This guy has this all the time. He is just an observer between humans. A vampyre of time and memories. He consumes time and events that happen but can't relate to. Outsider.

    "I want God to come and take me home
    'Cause I'm all alone in this crowd
    Who are you to me? Who am I supposed to be?"

    So he has this existential questions and the wish to terminate his existence.

    "You think the worst of all is far behind
    The vampire of time and memories has died
    I survived. I speak, I breathe, "

    I'd say that's about Joshua's near death experience. His friends are happy he is still alive. But the unability to feel love makes him incomplete and there is nothing to be cheering about.

    Are we all like this or does anyone ever get this right?
