I was running out in the cold light,
Wondering where to go
To run away, without you

All my fear is coming home,
And it's ripped out for the show
You can't be me,
I will become you, tonight

I was wandering under black skies,
Clutching at what is mine
No control, left to lose
When I felt that it wouldn't phase me,
I ran and hid like a child
I feel so guilty,
I'll make it up to you, tonight

Bridges I've been dreaming are going down,
They're changing my future
Visions I had buried underground,
Return us our futures

I was breaking out of my own skin,
Choking upon release
I'm in no state, to judge you
Scratching itches best left alone,
Chasing memories I used to own
I can't wait until this is over, tonight

Bridges I've been dreaming are going down,
They're changing my future
Visions I had buried underground,
Return us our futures

Well the nightmares I've been having have arrived,
They're changing my future
Signs of my creation at my door,
How could you do this to her?

    By watching the video and hearing the lyrics my best guess is that he had killed his girlfriend then became unstable and jealous of every other male as he couldnt get his girlfriend out of his head and saw her everywhere he turned. She vanishes in one of two scenes of the video for example in the club and again at the end. My opinion is that this guy is just being crushed by his jealousy and regrets

    I think that after "vision i had buried undergroung" it says "returns as love u-turns"... This might be a result of my mad english but that is what i hear.

    This guy has a split personality- "i was breaking out of my own skin' and so on. And he killed his gf 'how could you do this to her'. Don't know if u all noticed, she's being reanimated and the end of the vid. And at the beggining he gets a flashback that something bad had happened that's why he's running away from his home.

    Atm iam really confused what words are correct after going through a number of websites and what other people are saying. I've also watched the music video.

    Return us our futures
    Or
    Return as abusers (i can definably hear the 'b' but alot of other websites have "futures", but this one makes more sense since futures was already mentioned)

    Signs of my creation at my door (does not really affect the meaning of the lyrics)
    Or
    Siren of my creation at my door (does not really affect the meaning of the lyrics)

    Bridges i've been dreaming are coming down (personally i think this makes more sense, metaphor for the mental instability of the character)
    Or
    Creatures i've been dreaming are coming down

    They're changing my future ( this one makes more sense, due to the bridge that are coming down)
    Or
    The change in my future

    I say the song is about exactly what the title says, a crush. Many people fantasize about that one guy or girl, and in there mind that person seems so perfect. These fantasies are best left forgotten but always come back, and sometimes spills over into reality. And as fate would have it, you usually find out the true nature of this perfect person find, and either can't handle it and act out, or not understanding why, and blame yourself for it.
