Did we create a modern myth
Did we imagine half of it
Would happen in a thought from now

Save yourself
Save yourself
The secret is out
The secret is out

To buy the truth
And sell a lie
The last mistake before you die
So don't forget to breathe tonight
Tonight's the last so say good-bye

The secret is out [x4]

Good-bye [x17]

    An ignorant humanity is trapped in the depths and not even aware of its own limited perspective. There are invisible truths lying under the apparent surface of things which only the most enlightened can grasp.

    A very deep in thought song. It could mean diffrent meaning to anyone..
    Maybe to mean it means: Your in a relationship that you may think people to know about, but its more like a fantasy, and obsession, and everyone knows or finds out so its time to say goodbye.

    i think to some it would mean to them that some one found out that they were going out so he decided to break it off like so many jerks.but this one really isn't a jerk so its different with him and he's trying to lessen the blow with saying goodbye softly.
