I want to be overcome
But I can't. I am numb
I want to see what's become
Close my eyes bite my tongue

If you'll believe in me
I'll try not to die
If work keeps me living
It's got to start giving me life
Not strife

I'm so tired of living here
I'm so tired of giving here

I want to run and be free
But I can't I am so weak
I want to hold you again
In my arms, my old friend

I have just one more chance to feel
What's real
I can't keep going on
I feel my mind slowing
My heart's torn apart

I'm so tired of living here
I'm so tired of giving here

    General CommentProbably Godhead's best song. Either this or "I Hate Today". The beginning is so intense, yet so well-thought. In the middle, the song slows down to a nearly gothic-ish song, speeding up in the end, providing the perfect opening for "Break You Down". Listen!

    General Commentthis song is awesome totally describes what its like to get old infact maybe he had someone close to him that was old like his grandfather an maybe he just knew how old people think an know they were tired of being alive having nothing to give nothing to do or offer an he cant even get the strenght to hold one of his grandchildren thats the impression i got.

    General Commenti'm not too apt to that theory.

    it's a story about living in an emotionally desensitizing society (i am numb/i'm so weak/i'm so tired..) with a bit of nostalgia. (my old friend) etc etc.

    the chorus is a little too shout-along for my tastes, but it's beautiful nontheless.
