You try
Your hardest
To perfect your explanations...
You lie.
Until they've run out
Of questions

You can only move as fast as,
Who's in front of you,
And if you assume,
Just like them,
What good will it do,
So find out for yourself
So your ignorance,
Will stop bleeding through.

Only one thing.

Big enough to fill the void that's inside of you.
It's just a breath away.

You can breathe today.

So many lies swirling,
Around you,
You're suffocating,
The empty shape in you,
Steals your breath,
You're suffocating.

Logic forces me to believe in this,
And I have learned to see,
And I can only say what I've seen and heard,
And only you can choose,
And every choice you make will effect you,
Search your own self.

You can breathe today.

So many lies swirling,
Around you,
You're suffocating,
The empty shape in you,
Steals your breath,
You're suffocating.

B R E A T H E!

Big enough to fill the void that's inside of you,
It's just a breath away.

So many lies swirling,
Around you,
You're suffocating,
The empty shape in you,
Steals your breath,
You're suffocating.

You can breathe today

Breathe today.

    i think this song means there are rumors spreading about everyone and everything but instead of being ignorant and spreading what you dont know you should find out the truth...
    and
    dont let others get you upset with tell you lies and rumors go figure everything out for yourself dont go over board just breathe and be calm things may not be as bad as they seem...

    This song is about people that struggle with admitting that they believe in God. She's saying that she has seen and heard Him, but only you can choose to truly believe or not. Either way, it will effect you and you will face the reprocussions of your decisions. She's saying that you can breathe today if you just admit it. You don't have to lie to people and say that you don't believe in God because you're scared of what people will think of you.

    To me... The song means: that people lie to themselves and others to make things in their own life seem better. They get caught in the lie and have to continue the lie once its started in order to have people around them believe it. From my own experience lies can become overwhelming and become your whole life in order to hide that one thing or hide yourself. She says "i can only say what ive seen and heard, and only you can choose & every choive you make will effect you. Search your own self" stop looking to others to fill the void, your time, your happiness, your meaning to life. You can find all of that inside of you, dont hide yourself because you think people wont like you they wont like you if your fake and a liar either. So just be you and f*** what other people think chances are if you love yourself they will love you too =)
