Suffering from something we're not sure of in a world there is no cure for
These lives we live test negative for happiness
Flat line, no pulse, but eyes open
Single file like soldiers on a mission
If there's no war outside our heads
Why are we losing?

I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'd settle for a life less frightening
A life less frightening
I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'd settle for a life less frightening
A life less frightening

Hang me out to dry im soaking
With the sins of knowing
What's gone wrong, but doing nothing i still run
Time again i have found myself stuttering
Foundations pulled out from under me
This breath is wasted on them all
Will someone answer me?

I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'd settle for a life less frightening
A life less frightening
I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'd settle for a life less frightening
A life less frightening

Is there a god tonight
Up in the sky
Or is it empty just like me?
(just like me)
A place where we can hide
I long to find
Where you are all i see.
(where you are all i see)
So blow a kiss goodbye then close your eyes
And tell me what you see?
(tell me what i see)
A lifetime spent inside
This dream of mine
Where you are all i see...

I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'd settle for a life less frightening
A life less frightening
I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'd settle for a life less frightening
A life less frightening

    What is so awesome to me is the double meanings of most of rise against's songs. Reminds me that there's a duality to our uniqueness, it allows us all to be "special" but also isolates us from each other. To me the song reminds me of when i was a child and felt like i had my own "sings of knowing" horrible things.

    this is a song about how we have to constantly live in hiding because of the war in iraq and how we barely have a say in it
