The National – Lean lyrics

Everybody needs a prayer, and needs a friend
Everybody knows the world's about to end
Everybody wants to know what the end will be
Everybody wants to look before they leap
Everybody wants to sip of wine to drink
Everybody wants a little more time to think
Everybody needs a reason why they run
Everybody wants to know what they're running from

And I can see your fever's on the rise
I can see the waters in your eyes
And I can see the way the water leads
Love will lead us all to smithereens
Dying is easy, I believe my love and my love relieves me
Dying is easy, I believe my love and my love relieves me
You said it was everything...

Everybody takes forever to fall asleep,
Everybody's got a life they don't want to keep
Everybody needs a prayer, and needs a friend
Everybody knows the world's about to end

And I can see your fever's on the rise
I can see the waters in your eyes
And I can see the way the water leads
Love will lead us all to smithereens
Dying is easy, I believe my love and my love relieves me
Dying is easy, I believe my love and my love relieves me
You said it was everything...
I'm gonna let it in...

And I can see your fever's on the rise
I can see the waters in your eyes
And I can see the way the water leads
Love will lead us all to smithereens
Dying is easy, I believe my love and my love relieves me
Dying is easy, I believe my love and my love relieves me
You said it was everything...
I'm gonna let it in...

    I think it's about Peeta in the cave (your fever's on the rise) and how Katniss feels about it. The strange thing is that this was written for the second movie though, not the Hunger Games. This could also possibly be about Katniss' willingness to sacrifice herself to save Peeta. She knows she will die but she is "relieved" because his life will be saved and she "believes" in him.
