Time
It's never worth my time
Blue shine
Bleeds into my eyes

I still
Sleep on the right side
Of the white noise
Can't leave the scene behind

Could I be anything you want me to be
It's always meant to be seen

When you see yourself in a crowded room
Do your fingers itch, are you pistol-whipped
Will you step in line or release the glitch
Can you fall asleep with a panic switch

And when you see yourself in a crowded room
Do your fingers itch, are you pistol-whipped
Will you step in line or release the glitch
Do you think she'll sleep with the panic...

Mm, I'll try
To hold on tight tonight
Pink slip
Inviting me inside
Wanna burn skin
And brand what once was mine
But the red views
Keep ripping the divide

If I go everywhere you want me to go
How will I know you'll still follow

When you see yourself in a crowded room
Do your fingers itch, are you pistol-whipped
Will you step in line or release the glitch
Can you fall asleep with a panic switch

And when you see yourself in a crowded room
Do your fingers itch, are you pistol-whipped
Will you step in line or release the glitch
Do you think she'll sleep with the panic...

I'm waiting and fading and floating away
I'm waiting and fading and floating away
I'm waiting and fading and floating away
Waiting and fading and floating

[Guitar Solo]

I'm waiting and fading and floating away
Waiting and fading and floating away
Waiting and fading and floating away
Waiting and fading, waiting and fading

When you see yourself in a crowded room
Do your fingers itch, are you pistol-whipped
Will you step in line or release the glitch
Can you fall asleep with a panic switch

And when you see yourself in a crowded room
Do your fingers itch, are you pistol-whipped
Will you step in line or release the glitch
Do you think she'll sleep with the panic...

    seems like the song is about being rejected and the panic that can come with it, depending on what you're rejected from. like being laid off from a job, or having suffered some kind of injustice and having feelings of vengeance after leaving it all behind to move on.

    Speak softly but vote obama 2012!!! The only panic switch is fear and hatred and those who want you to hate... There is another way!!!

    Hatred and greed are ripping a divide in this country and some people don't see it... Some people don't care to see it because it is all about power... (their power, thats all its ever been about, narcissists amongst us).

    Seems to me it's about a politician who finally figures he's sorta screwed and he's in a panic. Perfect for mittens. His advisers did their usual great job of researching and getting permission from the owners to use the music. What a collection of geniuses are mitt and the boys! Imagine (apologies to lennon) that clown running the us for 4 years. Shudder.
