Well it's a cold world
And I'm in the middle
Caught in the in-between

I don't belong here
So I'm writing to you
It's wrong here
Where I'm sending you some

Letters from earth

Well it's a new world
And now I'm a stranger
Stranger than you know

I don't belong here
And I'm writing to you
With blood on my hands

What if I send you madness?
What if I send you pain?
And letters from earth

Come on it's another game
But you gotta play on
'Cause they say it's just pretend
Ask them why they say you'll never, never die
Come on - The game is called the end

Well it's a cold world
And I'm in the middle
Caught in the in-between

I don't belong here
So I'm writing to you
Hey let me explain

What if I send you confusion?
What is the time and the pain worth?
Oh no no
I'm only sending - Letters from the earth

    I'm pretty sure this song is based on a novella/essay by mark twain, entitled letters from the earth. He describes his take on god and humans by addressing letters from satan to fellow angels michael and gabriel.
