Whoa, yeah!

You say you're getting close to a last chance or suicide,
Tearing at your throat you won't let it die.
Left me here for all these days and ripped apart my pride...

Take my place and look inside, try to find a place,
To hide, hide.
Lost my faith but don't you cry,
I got a hole inside and it's ten miles wide!

Yeah!
Alright!

Living on the coast, cocktails and telling lies.
Got a fucking curse that's coming to life.
You left me here for all these days and ripped apart my pride.

Take my place and look inside, try to find a place
To hide, hide.
Lost my faith but don't you cry,
I got a hole inside and it's ten miles wide.

It's not to late I'm close behind,
Got to get inside your mind, mind.
Lost my faith but don't you cry,
I got a hole inside and it's ten miles wide.

Take me on I'm feeling in the mood for something dangerous, I've found myself again.
Take me on I'm feeling in the mood for something dangerous, I've found myself again.

Take my place and look inside, try to find a place to hide, hide.
Lost my faith but don't you cry,
I got a hole inside and it's ten miles wide.

Well I lost myself and looked inside it branded me for life,
I can't help myself it's mine to hide.

I got a hole inside
It's feeling ten miles
It's feeling ten miles
It's feeling ten miles wide!

Ten miles wide!
Ten miles wide!
Ten miles wide!

    OMG.
    When I first heard this song, I was all 'Why does this eerily sound like a mix between Atreyu and Avenged Sevenfold?' The voice in certain parts, I mean. That's exactly what I thought. And I just love this song! It's my second favorite on this cd. My first is It's Just Me. It can never top the first one though.

    Hes missing something in his heart that nothing can fill. Nothing can satisfy his empty spaces: not denial (telling lies) not alcohol or drugs (cocktails) and not risks (take me on, am feeling in the mode for something dangerous). He tries to get other people to see his point of view (take my place and look inside)... But in the end he doesn't want your sympathy (lost my faith but don't u cry), and he had bad memories maybe? Looking back at the "hole" thats "10 miles wide" "branded him for life"
    Something obviously scarred him for life, and now he has a heartache that feels like its ten miles wide
