It's raining today
The blinds are shut
It's always the same
I tried all the games that
They play
But they
Made me insane
Life on TV
It's random
But means nothing to me
I'm writing down
What I cannot see
Wanna wake up in a dream

Owow
They're telling me
It's beautiful
I believe them
But will I ever know
The world behind my wall
Owow
The sun will shine
Like never before
One day I will be
Ready to go
See the world behind my wall

Trains in the sky
Are travelling
Through fragments of time
They're taking me to parts
Of my mind
That no one can find

I'm ready to fall
I'm ready to crawl
On my knees to know it all
I'm ready to heal
I'm ready to feel

Owow
They're telling me
It's beautiful
I believe them
But will I ever know
The world behind my wall
Owow
The sun will shine
Like never before
One day I will be
Ready to go
See the world behind my wall (x4)

I'm ready to fall
I'm ready to crawl
On my knees to know it all
I'm ready to heal
I'm ready to feel

Take me there!
Owow
Take me there!
Take me there!

Owow
They're telling me
It's beautiful
I believe them
But will I ever know
The world behind my wall

    i love this song because it's like in my situation cause my parents won't let me stroll around or hang out with my friends..
    my cousins tell me that i have to encounter the people around you so that i can gain some self confidence,
    but the only problem is my parents..
    but i trust them and i will follow them because it's for my own good..

    [except just im not a celebrity he-he]

    its definitely about life as it is, our influences and how we occupy our time by looking at certain things like the TV rather than noticing real things that really go on. and how we take what we have for granted
    I'm ready to fall
    I'm ready to crawl on me knees
    to know it all
    I'm ready heal
    I'm ready to feel

    trains in the sky
    are traveling through fragments of time
    they're taking me to parts of my mind
    that no one can find

    he's ready to face himself, his issues and his life. He wants to really live rather than living this false persona.

    he understands pain but he wants to know himself better so he wants to live like some people live everyday, to suffer.

    whoa whoa
    they're telling me its beautiful
    I believe them but will I ever know

    he sees the outer beauty of things and acknowledges it but he doesn't know those people or that life, how they live and their suffering. So he will never know.

    thats just my take, I used to hate this song but now that I understand it I truly love it. My favorite song on the album is That Day.

    I think it's about the Berlin wall, when it was destroyed in the year 1989, same year as Tom And Bill was born.. I don't know, it's just my perspective to the song.. I guess they wrote it because of what happened in that year.. :) But still they're cool..

    GOODLUCK TOKIO HOTEL!!
    MWAAAHH!!!

    I think that the song refers to a person who is famous and for this reason it says : life on TV. This person is frustrated and feels so lonely cause it is forced to do things...It hopes that one day it can live it's dream and become optomistic and happy...Now the only thing that it does is to pretend... The others are trying to persuade it that everything is ok but nothing is ok cause this person is miserable..It wants to find a new world and see the bright side,escape from the fake world and live it's dream...Now unfortunately, it is curtailed and lives the same things again and again and again...and it is bored everything is dull everything is the same...the only one this person has is hope... This is my opinion and nothing more I want also to say a big THANK YOU to the persons who made this cause we can express our thoughts and feelings for the songs!!!THANK YOU AGAIN!!!
