An empty room,
I'm empty too
Everything that I do
Reminds me of you
So many things that
I shouldn't have missed
The more that I push
And the more you resist
It's easy to say it's for the best
When you want more,
Well you leave me with less

I know you're fine, but what do I do?
I know you're fine, but what do I do?

I'm awake, and trying
While you're sleeping like a babe
Beside him
I'm on the ledge while you're so
God damn polite and composed
And I know you see me,
And you're making it look so easy
What comes and goes,
I go without.

I know you're fine but what about
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout (fallout)
Through the Fallout
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout, (fallout)
You're the fallout

Well now there's him,
And now there's me
The secrets you give
And the secrets you keep
Nevertheless
It's never your less
The more that I give
And the less that I get
Don't tell me to fight,
To fight for you
After this long, I shouldn't have to

I know you're fine, but what do I do?
I know you're fine, but what do I do?

I'm awake, and trying
While you're sleeping like a babe
Beside him
I'm on the ledge while you're so
God damn polite and composed
And I know you see me,
And you're making it look so easy
What comes and goes,
I'd go without

I know you're fine but what about
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout (fallout)
Through the Fallout
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout, (fallout)

I know you're fine but what about
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout (fallout)
Through the Fallout
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout, (fallout)
You're the fallout

I know you're fine, but what do I do?
I know you're fine, but what do I do?

I know you're fine but what about
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout (fallout)
Through the Fallout
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout, (fallout)

I know you're fine but what if I
(Fallout)
I'm awake, and trying
While you're sleeping like a babe
Beside him
I'm on the ledge while you're so
God damn polite and composed

(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout (fallout)
Through the Fallout
(Fallout), Fallout, (fallout), fallout, (fallout)
Through the bottom
(Fallout) FALLOUT (fallout)

And now,while he stands in his empty room, where everything reminds him of the time with his girlfriend, and so he remembers that she didn't always gave him the feeling of "love".

    I know this song was written for something else but i like to think of something else when i listen to this song. To me it means what child services has been putting me through. They make me suffer and have a lot of problems from tramatizing me so much in life. I especially like the one line in this song "i know you're fine, but what do i do? ". Describes perfectly how i feel of them. But everything really describes of how i feel about them. I'm trying so hard and it seems like they're doing nothing and they don't care. I was i was 18 already so i can get out of this.

    Nuclear testing in the nevada desert left a terrible legacy. Soon there will be no down-winders; they will all be sleeping "like babes" dreaming what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil. Not very goddamned and composed at all, if you ask me.

    Volcanoes erupt all the time. People just need to learn to keep windex in their piano benches. Why must the poor lilies suffer because of the deers?
