I stand just in the dark
And so is my heart
The weight of the world has covered me
I'm in over my head
Am I living or dead?
Can anyone hear me calling out
I'm calling out

Finally breaking, so where are you now?
It's been such a long time
And I tried to live without, I'm suffocating
Need you to breathe
So reach down and pull me up, pull me up
Before I am buried beneath

I built this house on the shore
All I wanted was more
And I felt the sands start shifting
Saw the cracks in the walls
I painted over them all
I tried my best to just ignore
I can't ignore

Finally breaking, so where are you now?
It's been such a long time
And I tried to live without, I'm suffocating
Need you to breathe
So reach down and pull me up, pull me up
Before I am buried beneath

Thought I was climbing up
But it's dragging me down
What's sitting here with me
Thought I was alone
But it pulls me deeper
Now I can't escape

Finally breaking, so where are you now?
It's been such a long time
And I tried to live without, I'm suffocating
Need you to breathe
So reach down and pull me up, pull me up
Before I am buried beneath

    In my opinion this song is about someone who has tried for a while to live without God. His house is built on sand (the devil's promise, unstable, unreliable and untrue) and without God his house cannot stand, hence the cracks in the walls that he tries to ignore. Finally he realizes he needs God to help him before this new lifestyle completely takes over him and buries him beneath the sin that he as a human cannot over come alone. God bless :)
