Raine: You guys are all real people out there, right? Real people have real
Problems, and the problem...I think with a lot of people is, usually at some point in your life, there's a person very close to you, that you love, that needs help. The problem is that, usually, the time when the person needs the most help, is the time that they don't want your help. This next song is about that person that everybody has, or will have. It's about trying to connect with them and help them and save them and all those things that you wanna do but sometimes as human beings you can't do. It's called Are You Sad.

...Three, four...

Your life has been so hard
It's dried up angels, can't keep guard
And I'm trying to reach your hand
But I'm on fire, I never meant to
Fade away, away from me

Oh, just stop pretending when they say your nothing

Are you sad?
Are you holding yourself?
Locked in your room?
You shouldn't be
Sad, and you holding yourself?
Are you locked in your room?
You shouldn't be

I'm drowning inside your head
Help me to answer
Help understand
Why it's been so long since we talked like friends
Oh please forgive me,
I'm just a man whose made mistakes
Wait for me

Oh just stop pretending when they say your nothing

Are you sad?
Are you holding yourself?
Are you locked in your room?
You shouldn't be
Are you sad?
Are you holding yourself?
Are you locked in your room?
You shouldn't be

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh ohhhhhhhhh

Are you sad?
Are you holding yourself?
Are you locked in your room?
You shouldn't be
Are you sad?
Are you holding yourself?
Are you locked in your room?
You shouldn't be

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh you shouldn't be
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh ohhhhhhh
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
You shouldn't be, sad
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, ohhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhh
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
You shouldn't be, sad
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, you shouldn't be, sad
