Anberlin – Alexithymia lyrics

Don't try to wake me up
Even if the sun really does come out tomorrow
Don't believe anything you say anymore
In the morn, in the morning
Bricks to this old house are breaking
Steel would have weathered
But now forlorning
It's alarming how loud the silence screams
No warn, no warn, no warning

Addictions fill the table where the family used to sit
And conversate, conversate to the sounds
To the sounds of a record player
With it's jumping needle
And the lights that grow dim over time

With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive

Are you where you thought you'd be
So beautiful and only twenty-three
Opposition rests in the hearts
With no, with no, with no opportunity
It's not that we don't talk
I'ts just no one really listens
And honesty fades
Like a politician lost in the course
All smiles and no one remembers our names

With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive

Don't try to wake me up
Even if the sun really does come out tomorrow
Don't believe anything I say anymore
In the morn, in the morning

With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes
There's more to living than being alive

    Whenever I hear this song chills run down my spine and I can't help it, I've felt that way being at a loss for words for emotions, I feel bad and wish I could do something because I know that people really suffer from alexithymia and it's gotta be tough but the only thing I can think to do is focus on how to express ourselves and not let it get us down, if we do then what's the point, "there's more to living than being alive" so don't just live for yourself, live for everyone who doesn't have the chance to do so as they would like to.

    Why do you interpret "living for something" to mean "living for god"? Anberlin may be a christian band, but many non-christians listen to their music and find different meanings than living for god.
    It sounds to me that he's singing about a hard time in his life and he has to do more than be alive to get through it and achieve happiness, he has to work hard for the ones he loves. And he is using his one life to care for and protect his loved ones.
