There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say,
There's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away.

There's a place where nothing seems to be as simple quite cohesively
It's all your mind, all your mind
Something little shouldn't feel this way, We got a million thoughs we can't convey
It's all your life, all your life!

It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die
Like beautiful stories the greatest chapters flew right by
There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away.

These things don't happen here; another fictional reality
It's all your mind; all your mind!
It's just as good as any other day, I'm gonna teach you about mortality
Now it's not right, it's not right!

It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die
Like beautiful stories the greatest chapters flew right by
There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away.

In many ways I guess I'll never let you go
I'm close behind, but I've got room here left to grow
Until our second chance, just enjoy the dance, and find out who we are
(These dreams will never leave you)
Let's find out what we are!
(These dreams will never leave you, never leave you asking why)

It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die
Like beautiful stories the greatest chapters flew right by
There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away, I know why you're running away

    Its probably because at 4 am the sun starts to rise and it basically states that we have another chance at life and see what the new day brings us or we can just give up.

    Makes really sad. Every word can have a different meaning and this is little... I don't know, scaring. This song is scaring cause you can feel a strong pain inside.

    A7x likes killing people. So they wrote a song about it and now everyone likes the psychotic side that a7x is showing. I myself like this side.

    Like most songs on the new album, this song has a few references to jimmy (r. I. P. ) like "we've got a million thoughts we can't convey". Many people have things that keep them from sleeping at night, and this song is about those thoughts that have us lying awake at night (hence the "it's all your mind" lines in the verse)

    I think that these could be about jason becker. The guitarist who was diagnosed with als in the late 80s or early 90s. He was given 3-5 years to live, but it has now been 20 years since he was diagnosed. At one point he needed 2 operations so he could breath and eat without dying. After the operations he was in the hospital unable to move due to his illness and every 2 hours a nurse would come in and suck the mucus out of his lungs with a tube which caused him great pain. He thought the pain would be the end of him, so he constantly prayed in his mind to god the let him live and not let him die without knowing what life was about. At 4 am a nurse came in with a tube, and he had a look of great fear in his eyes but she said "im just doing my job" and sucked out the liquid from his lungs. I believe that this may have been jason's "one more chance to die" because this is when he could feel the life draining from his body.
