I see through your clothes
Your nerve damage shows
Trying not to feel
Anything that's real
You're losing control

Meltdown's looking for a new clown
Living in a world that's make believe
Used up burned out always got a hand out
Ain't nothing here for free
Now you're hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Let go let it be

New circus freak
With black eyes that speak
Life takes it's toll
You push and it pulls
You're losing control

Meltdown's looking for a new clown
Living in a world that's make believe
Used up burned out always got a hand out
Ain't nothing here for free
Now you're hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Let go let it be

I see through your clothes
Your nerve damage shows
You're losing control

Meltdown's looking for a new clown
Living in a world that's make believe
Used up burned out always got a hand out
Ain't nothing here for free
Now you're hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Let go let it be

Hell bent looking for a God send
Kicking down the door waiting for a sign
Right side turning on the bright side
That might not be what you find
Wake up move on nothing left to prove
Got nightmares in your dreams

    This song is singin about someone caught uo with satan. Considering previous songs by lifehouse, they generally have biblical meaning behind their songs. 'your nerve damage shows, you're losing control' you have been wrestling with satan and i can tell. Meltdown looking for a new clown (clown seems to be the name for satan) thus the person is looking for a new thing to get their mind off of whateve else is happening. Used up, burnt out, meaning the person cant do it any more. Hell bent looking for a god send kicking down the door waiting for a sign, meaning the person is looking for something to fix these problems (god). Wake up move on nothing left to prove got nightmares in your dreams, wake up from living with satan (awakening) and move on from your nightmare filled dreams. Make sense?
