Trapt – These Walls lyrics
Something missing. Left behind.
Search in circles. Every time I try.
I've been here before. [yeaah]
I've seen you before.

I can't escape walking down these halls.
Hard to find a place where there are no walls.
And no lines begging me to cross.
Only straight ahead better move along.

Like clockwork I commit the crime.
I pretend to be everything they like.
I've been here before. [yeaa]
I've seen you before.

I can't escape walking down these halls.
Hard to find a place where there are no walls.
And no lines begging me to cross.
Only straight ahead better move along.

And I trade everything for this.
And I trade everything for this.
Why do I read the writing on the wall.
Why do I read the writing on the wall.

I won't lose my place in line.
I've been here too long and I've spent too much time.
I won't lose my place in line.
I've been here too long and I've spent too much time.

Something missing. Left behind.
Search in circles. Every time I try.
I've been here before. [yeaah]
I've seen you before.

I can't escape walking down these halls.
Hard to find a place where there are no walls.
And no lines begging me to cross.
Only straight ahead better move along.

And I trade everything for this.
And I trade everything for this.
Why do I read the writing on the wall.
Why do I read the writing on the wall.
Why do I read the writing on the wall.
Why do I read the writing on the wall. [wall... Wall...]

    I think this song is about being someone you want to escape from and always find hard to do. It's prison. You want to break free and you keep yourself in line hopeing change will come. There are no walls. Stuck walking down halls. Can't help but read the writing. Like there's been more in that position and he is reading what others have defined. Which makes him understand why hes there. But he wants out and he wants change. I guess I see it this way because my little brother is locked up for 7 years. For being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sometimes it's not what you do. But who you surround yourself with that can be the hardest thing that takes you away from everything you love.

    I'm in the military so I put this in that kind of state of mind. 1st paragraph is all about a friend who you've left down in the battlefield who keeps flashing in your head because you were there when he went down. Then the chorus kicks in and he has a flashback of walking down the halls with his friend, trying to keep going and not looking back, never knowing what's going to be around the corner. 3rd paragraph is still while he's having a flash back. He tries to be the hero and as a result ends committing the "crime" of getting one of his friends hurt. Chorus kicks in and same thing. 5th paragraph is him standing at his friends grave, wishing he could trade anything for him back, reading the writing on the grave stone and asking himself why does he keep reading as tears stream down his face. "I won't lose my place in line" "I've been here too long i've spent too much time" means that he has spent too much time deployed to be a victim like his other friends.
    The rest is repetitive.

    I think its about how he is trapped in a place of his own making, all his regrets on the 'wall' for him to see and he doesn't want to lose his place in line to the top, because he's sacrificed to much.
    'Something Missing' is the person he use to be, 'trade anything' is for him to be who he use to be instead of the person he's become.
