As beautiful as fire against the evening sky
You fuel the lost desire- I no longer wanna die
Take me by the hand and see beyond the lies
Strip away the fences - leave me needing, leave me high
I know you're so solo, but I can't.

[Chorus:]
Take me away - cause I don't wanna lose control
Take me away- cause I don't wanna lose it all

Relieved of all the pain you let me see again
Delievered from my shame now and I am lost for what to say
Cleansed and pure and weak, I suffer when I dream.
I need to find a purpose- I need to feel you needing me.
I know you're so solo, but I can't.

[Chorus]

Pure and weak, I suffer when I dream
Cleansed of me, I suffer when I dream
Because I want you to stay, you take away the pain
I want you to stay, I need you here to keep me sane

[Chorus]

I want you to stay- you take away the pain
I want you to stay- I need you here to keep me sane

    Im pretty sure that, at the risk of sounding cliche, this song is about drugs. I think shaun is feeling like drugs give him something that he simply can't get from being sober. "you fuel the lost desire-i no longer want to die" sounds like he's much happier on drugs. However, he knows the danger of drugs, hence the "i don't want to loose control/loose it all". The drugs take him away to a place that he feels is preferable to sobriety. "pure and weak, i suffer when i dream". When he's sober, he struggles and suffers. "i need you here to keep me sane". He can't continue struggling through life without some sort of crutch. Great song with a very deep, dark meaning, at least to me.
