We dug these holes we crawled into
Now they're my home
Now here I cannot feel the wind
Can't feel the rain (bow)?
And I believe in gentle harmony
How I loathe all this obscenity
Is this the way my life has got to be
By a single opportunity

Look at me, oh look at me
Is this the way I've always been
Oh no, oh no
Anekatips
Now I'm dreaming somebody
Would simply come and kidnap me
Oh no, oh no
Everyday I lie awake and pray to God today's the day
Oh no, oh no
Here I am, and here I am, when will someone understand
Oh no, oh no

And all at once I feel this
Oh how it clings to me (clings to me)
It reels and calls me towards it
Confounding destiny (destiny)
And I can feel the magnets pinch my hands
The more I run the more I am convinced
A girl who loves is like a precious glimpse
Just like we settle in the foggy mist

Look at me, oh look at me
Is this the way I've always been
Oh no, oh no
Now I'm dreaming somebody would simply
Come and kidnap me
Oh no, oh no
Everyday I lie awake and pray to God
Today's the day
Oh no, oh no
Here I am, here I am, when will someone understand
Oh no, oh no

Look at me, oh look at me
Is this the way I've always been
Oh no, oh no
Now I'm dreaming somebody would simply
Come and kidnap me
Oh no, oh no
Everyday I lie awake and pray to God
Today's the day
Oh no, oh no
Here I am, here I am, when will someone understand
Oh no, oh no

    Once happy, now lost/closed off. Living in deep darkness and despair. Enthralled by a departed girl, who has changed his life so. Love? Convinced she's the one, but overwhelmed with pain. He knowingly dwells upon her. He moves on to feel, but only to see, its not the same. He cannot let go. Why? Disgusted, but stubborn, he cannot seem to motivate. Living in disbelief. Relying on the help and hope of finding another... Will he ever find a true love?

    We put ourselves in boxes, and suffer living within them while choosing to only dream of the life we really want to live
