I've been crawling around around in the dark for a while
Spread out across the floor, Not Collecting dust anymore
Define me a parasite, Define my host
Trapped beneath the floor, I slowly waste away
I pull my frail Body into a chair, and look me in the face
I'm disappointed, so disappointed
This will be my last one, it's gonna be good and hard
It might be a touch out of key, a touch out of key
When this thing breaks, I will be you, you will be me
I'll pray that this is really happening
When this thing breaks, I will be you, you will be me
Let's hope this is short lived and riddled with disease
Oh god the Noise
This ringing in my ear, It's so unclear, so unclear
I hear them talking, but can't make out the words
Speak up, Speak clear
I hear them talking, but can't make out the words
Speak up, Speak clear
Where have I been, What terrible company,
With zero apologies
My God, where have I been, Where have I been
When I sink to the bottom,
I'll Sing out as it fills with water
I hope I've done enough
When this thing breaks, I will be you, you will be me
Let's hope this is short lived and riddled with disease
When this thing breaks, I will be you, you will be me
We'll pray that this is really happening
I'm worn out, I'm Worn thin, I will never break through
I'm worn out, (Where Have I been) I'm Worn thin,
(Where Have I Been) I will never break through (Where Have I been)
Let Me Out, Let Me Out, Let Me Out

    sounds like he's lost in a dark spiraling vortex of confusion, and has only just now found himself, in time to watch himself die, for there are no means of escape

    this is probablly so off but it could happen...

    Yeah, this makes me think that he's making a covenant with his Savior- taking off who he is to put on who Jesus is.
    The wrong crowd burned him out, and he burned himself out, and now he's got a wall to break down to get back in the race to eternity in God's beauty.

    Story of my life!

    I love Underoath.

    I think he's lost himself. the inner him. and he feels 'worn out'. and he is asking god to help him find himself again.

    Honestly, saoadran, the song could mean something entirely different to you than it does to someone else.
    Thats the beauty of music.
    Open up a bit.
