Last night I found heaven
It's on the tip of my tongue
And it reminded me of
All the times I was young

Of catching rain in my open mouth
I used to smile till the day I fell down
I have no idea who the hell I've become
It's not who I was, it's not who I loved

I want to drown, in a sea filled with Novocaine
I want to burn, on a beach where the sand
Has thousands of needles poking at my skin

I lie in bed to the sound, of the wolves at my door
They are speaking in tongues
While they claw at my floor

I never thought it would come to this
I'm more yellow than my own piss

(They're making rounds) just to even the score
Just open the door, just open the door

I want to drown, in a sea filled with Novocaine
I want to burn, on a beach where the sand
Is littered with razor blades
Littered with razor blades
Blades
Littered with razor blades

I can't hold on, the path is clear
I can't ignore, what's been building for years
There's wolves at the door, I won't hide here in fear
Wolves at the door, wah!

I look at myself and the things that I've done
Stare away from the mirror and right into the sun
I forgive myself for all of my mistakes
When will I learn, when will I, when will I burn

I want to drown, in a sea filled with Novocaine
I want to burn, on a beach where the sand
Is littered with razor blades

I gave up on myself a long time ago
To the black clouds I'm swallowed
And spit me out whole

Some times it feels like I'm losing my soul
At least that means
I still have a soul after all

    this song is all about him falling away from what he thought he was going to be. he wanted a life he couldnever have, but the drinking ruined it without him even knowing it. he wakes up one day, and realizes this all, and the wolves at the door are his realizations of his old life getting ripped away. he wants to just die a painless death, because he's done trying and dealing with pain.

    This song is pretty much about the main character waking up with a hangover, finding that his life is still in shambles. He can't drink away the pain of past failures and can't move on.
