Who knows how long
I've been awake now?
The shadows on my wall don't sleep
They keep calling me
Beckoning...
Who knows what's right?
The lines keep getting thinner
My age has never made me wise
But I keep pushing on and on and on and on

There's nothing left to say now...
I'm giving up, giving up, hey hey, giving up now...
There's nothing left to say now...
I'm giving up, giving up, hey hey, giving up now...

Below my soul
I feel an engine
Collapsing as it sees the pain
If I could only shut it out
I've come too far
To see the end now
Even if my way is wrong
I keep pushing on and on and on and on

There's nothing left to say now...
I'm giving up, giving up, hey hey, giving up now...
There's nothing left to say now...
I'm giving up, giving up, hey hey, giving up now...

I keep falling, I keep falling down...
If you could only save me
I'm drowning in the waters of my soul

There's nothing left to say now...
I'm giving up, giving up, hey hey, giving up now...
There's nothing left to say now...
I'm giving up, giving up, hey hey, giving up now...

    The darkness keeps beckoning for him to come even though he tries to get back out. You notice how people say the older you, the wiser. That's not always true. So he has given up on love, on life, on everything and there's just nothing else to say. His soul dies every time he sees her and he just wants her to save him.

    He's trying to escape from the darkness of his mind, which he knows is destroying his life, but he doesn't know how to, so he's just doing what he can, because he's so urgent and he has no choice. My guess is, there's someone in his life who is trying to help him, but he or she can't, because he's too far gone. He's probably doing drugs, or an alcoholic, or is depressed, and he's probably suicidal. His 'inner demons' are telling him to kill himself, but he's trying to live. Now, he's giving up, and going to commit suicide, or drink himself to death, and he's stopped trying.
