You crowd around me on the floor
Staring and observing, seeing what I'm fighting for
It's not in you, not like this

I'm only seconds away from giving in
And I'm running out of time
Now I'm running away to free my mind
My mind

It's so like you, indiscretion is all you can be
Screaming to see what is in between
I've been to Hell and back, the quiet never lasts
It's not like you to take a risk

I'm only seconds away from giving in
And I'm running out of time
Now I'm running away to free my mind
My mind
With only seconds to go
Cause we'll end this world
With only seconds to go, come drop the kill!

Reject the world that is broken
DON'T GIVE IN!
The time slips through our fingers
It slips away
Reject the words that are spoken
DON'T GIVE IN!
The final hour will linger
Too little, too late
Reject the world that is broken
DON'T GIVE IN!
The time slips though our fingers!
It slips away
Reject the words that are spoken
DON'T GIVE IN!
The final hour will linger
Too little, too fucking late!

You're too late
You're too late
The time we spent is free
Gone away
Gone away!

I'm only seconds away from giving in
And I'm running out of time
Now I'm running away to free my mind
My mind
With only seconds to go
Cause we'll end this world
With only seconds to go, give up the kill!

Reject the worlds that are broken
DON'T GIVE IN!
The time slips through our fingers
It slips away
Reject the words that are spoken
DON'T GIVE IN!
The final hour will linger,
It slips away

    I think they're trying to tell us not to waste time. In any way. Whether you cheat, or you just don't know what to do with your life, don't waste any time. Or anyone else's. They're isn't enough time to do everything we want to do, and we waste so much of it pining after the things we can't have, instead of trying to gain them. We brood instead of taking action. I mean, when i walk through the halls at school, i have five minutes to get to class before i'm late. When i'm not at school, five minutes seems so much longer, but it's hardly enough time to get my things and walk half-way accross the campus. Every minute goes so fast, and we literally take every precious second for granted, saying "tomorrow is another day. " i think this song is telling people to live, and "reject the worlds that are broken," not to give in when we're frustrated for not having enough time to accomplish what we need to. When we don't give enough of ourselves, giving "too little," the moment passes, and we're "too late. "

    Just saying that what the world teaches you is a lie, and by design you'd believe it. But you shouldn't. And i hate that jag does jordan blake's scream/sing thing. True asd fans kno what im talking about
