You arrive
In the rising sun
The hidden passenger
That I've been taking
Close your eyes
Let's forget again
As you drag me down
I will take you in

What are you waiting for?
Just surrender here tonight
What are you waiting for?
As we go towards the light

When everything is said and done
Still looking for answers if only one
Turn my back the urge has gone
Left with no reason we come undone

I am caught
In your slow release
Seems like your traveller's
Eager to move me
My reflection
Will slowly fade
To another time
Until my head escapes

What are you waiting for?
Just surrender here tonight
What are you waiting for?
As we go towards the light

When everything is said and done
So looking for answers if only one
Turn my back the urge has gone
Left with no reason we come undone

    You arrive
    In the rising sun
    The hidden passenger
    That I've been taking
    Close your eyes
    Let's forget again
    As you drag me down
    I will take you in

    What are you waiting for?
    Just surrender here tonight
    What are you waiting for?
    As we go towards the light

    When everything is said and done
    Still looking for answers if only one
    Turn my back the urge has gone
    Left with no reason we come undone

    I am caught
    In your slow release
    Seems like your traveller's
    Eager to move me
    My reflection
    Will slowly fade
    To another time
    Until my head escapes

    What are you waiting for?
    Just surrender here tonight
    What are you waiting for?
    As we go towards the light

    When everything is said and done
    So looking for answers if only one
    Turn my back the urge has gone
    Left with no reason we come undone

    The lyrics for this match perfectly with those in self vs self. Its about being two people at once; the person you truly are, and the person people want you to be.

    I think the song is about discovering a part of yourself that you never knew ("the hidden passenger i've been taking"), learning to accept it ("just surrender here tonight... As we go towards the light"), questioning how you've come to be this person ("still looking for answers if only one"), and eventually leaving the question unanswered ("turn my back the urge has gone, left with no reason, we come undone).

    Two lovers are having sex. "left with no reason we come undone" "i am caught in your slow release" so many parts of this song it sounds like they are losing themselves in each other.

    Regardless of what people think the singer is trying to say, it's all up to the listener to find meaning in it. To me it's about surrendering to the one you love even when you feel like it is meaningless. But that's just me.
