Open the slits in your face and start your day
You don't have much time to make your slits look just right
I'm in your mind
I'm singing
I'm in your mind
I'm singing la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da

Look in the mirror and ask yourself if you're alright
Put out the glitter that your soul hides behind
You're in my mind
I'm singing
You're in my mind
I'm singing la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da

Nowhere were they holy
Open up your eyes and see
The clouds above will hold you
The clouds above will sing

And in your mind
You're singing la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da-da

    I believe this song is about self harm. It's saying that Tyler and Josh (band members of TØP) are in your mind when you're ever thinking about self harming or committing suicide. They want you to stop self harming and hurting yourself because they'll always be there for you she you're feeling like you want to give up. That's what the show in their songs. It's just sometimes hard to tell, but they care, a lot.

    It's about preventing self harm. Fact the whole cd is that this song is on. One if their close friends took their life during the creation of it and it us a tribute to him and want everyone to have a reason to live, a reason to listen, to hear, to see. It gives listeners on all levels on emotions a chance to embrace the severity and seriousness of suicide as well as relate to the music, other individuals who are struggling and in hopes, come together through music to continue living, creating an art of life, moving to a beat, etc. Equivalent to their holding on to you song. It's not about a couple, but their friends memories. He was big in music, thus why car radio talks about the missing silence.
