I'm floating
And something's reaching out
Vibrations
Can you hear them now?
Please help us
We're running out of time
My brothers
We're deathly and alive
I feel you
On a far off, distant land
We fucked up
Let's give ourselves a hand
It's over
From the heavens on down
Heard footsteps
God's coming around

I've got an ache like a cat theif's got an alarm
It's got a sound like a gunshot over and over
Got a voice so lost off back in my head
It takes the heart rate up, then down even lower
I got my friends face down like a kid in the dark
They've got the same fear built up more, even more
Lit my eyes bright up like a predator shark
To let my mind close down every hour by hour

Finally I get this feeling
We're all alone in one big world
Just to realize what all these shapes and colors are
So it doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly
Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly

Do you feel like sighing in the darkest of nights
And does the pain stack up from the skin to the core
Do you find every time that you cover your eyes
To keep the tears held up dripping down even lower
You let the words cut down every line that's inside
To put the young flames out that make you cower and cower
If the sun breaks in instead of sparking the sign
I promise you
I'll be here
I'll let the light in

Finally I get this feeling
We're all alone in one big world
Just to realize what all these shapes and colors are
So it doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly
Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly

I'm floating
And something's reaching out
Vibrations
Can you hear them now?
Please help us
From the heavens on down
Heard footsteps
God's coming around

So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly
Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly

I've got an ache like a cat theif's got an alarm
It's got a sound like a gunshot over and over
Got a voice so lost off back in my head
It takes the heart rate up, then down even lower
I got my friends face down like a kid in the dark
They've got the same fear built up more, even more
Lit my eyes bright up like a predator shark
To let my mind close down every hour by hour

Do you feel like sighing in the darkest of nights
And does the pain stack up from the skin to the core
Do you find every time that you cover your eyes
To keep the tears held up dripping down even lower
You let the words cut down every line that's inside
To put the young flames out that make you cower and cower
If the sun breaks in instead of sparking the sign
I promise you
I'll be here
I'll let the light in

    the lyrics above are about 50% accurate...somebody should rewrite this.

    "deathly and alive"? wtf were you thinking? try "deathly out of line". he's talking about the soldiers in the war in the middle east.
