Drank so much last night
I think that I drowned
But now my cup is empty
No one has seen my will around
Now my heart is aching

Sometimes I fall asleep for days
But my bed is empty
I know I'm too set in my ways
Tell 'em I am okay

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached it's dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new to carry on

Oh...

Flew so high last night
I think that I fell to the ground so heavy
Woke up to find this living Hell
It used to be so easy

Hard to tell my nights now from my days
The curtains hide my feelings
Don't feel I have any right to pray
And will they find me someday, oh, someday

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached it's dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached it's dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new to carry on

And whatever takes us away
Will be the same to drive us on
And whatever takes us away
Will be the same to drive us on

Remember to find a new way
A way to see it all
Will find it slipping away
And soon it will be gone
Remember to find a new day
Remember to carry on

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached it's dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached it's dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new to carry on
Oh!

(Solo)

    I think it's about realising your lifestlye isn't working and you need to change your ways, start over basically. Inspiring song.

    I think it means he's a an alcoholic and a druggie, but he's in love with someone that dosen't care for the drugs and alcohol. And he's trying to discover life without drugs and alcohol..
