    Well I thought I would have a go at the lyrics and see how close I am when I get the official booklet, hope you appreciate the effort I put into this!

    Given Up

    Wake in a sweat again
    This day’s been laid to waste in my disgrace
    Stuck in my head again
    Feels like I’ll never leave this place
    There’s no escape
    I’m my own worst enemy

    I’ve given up
    I’m sick of feeling is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away
    I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me?

    I don’t know what to take
    Thought I was focused but I’m scared
    I’m not prepared
    I hyper ventilate
    Looking for help somehow somewhere
    And no-one cares
    I’m my own worst enemy

    I’ve given up
    I’m sick of feeling is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away
    I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me?

    Put me out of my misery
    Put me out of my misery
    Put me out of my
    Put me out of my fucking misery!

    I’ve given up
    I’m sick of feeling is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away
    I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me?

    Leave Out All The Rest

    I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared
    But no one would listen, cos no one else cared
    After my dreaming, I woke with this fear
    What am I leaving, when im done here?

    So if you’re asking me I want you to know

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Leave out all the rest

    Don’t be afraid of taking my beating
    I’ve shared what I fear
    I’m strong on the surface, not all the way through
    I’ve never been perfect, but neither have you

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself

    I can’t be who you are

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself

    I cant be who you are

    Bleed It Out

    Hey here we go for the hundredth time
    Hand grenade pins in every line
    Throw em up and let something shine
    Going out of my fucking mind
    Filthy mouth no excuse
    Find a new place to hang this noose
    String me up from atop these roofs
    Knot it tight so I wont get loose
    Truth is you can stop and stare
    Run myself out and no-one cares
    Dug the trench out
    Laid down there with a shovel up out of reach somewhere
    Yeah someone pour it in
    Make it a dirt dance floor again
    Say your prayers and stomp it out
    When they bring that chorus in

    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away

    Here we go stop the show
    Chopping boards and a sloppy flow
    Shotgun I put a lock in load
    Cock it back and then watch it go
    Mama help me I’ve been cursed
    Death is rolling in every verse
    Candy pain on his brand new hearse
    Cant contain all me knows he works
    Fuck this hurts
    I will not, doesn’t matter how hard I try
    Half the words don’t mean a thing
    And I know that I wont be satisfied
    So why try ignore again?
    Make it a dirt dance floor again
    Say your prayers and stomp it out
    When they bring that chorus in

    I’ve opened up these scars
    I’ll make you face us
    I’ve pulled myself so far
    I’ll make you face this now

    Shadow Of The Day

    I close both locks below the window
    I close both blinds and turn away
    Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple
    Sometimes goodbye’s the only way

    And the sun will set for you
    The sun will set for you
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you

    In cards and flowers on your window
    Your friends all plead for you to stay
    Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple
    Sometimes goodbye’s the only way

    And the sun will set for you
    The sun will set for you
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you

    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you

    What I’ve Done

    In this farewell, there’s no blood, there’s no alibi
    Cause I’ve drawn regret from the truth of a thousand lies
    So let mercy come and wash away

    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done

    Put to rest what you thought of me
    Well I clean this slate
    With the hands of uncertainty
    So let mercy come and wash away

    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done

    For what I’ve done
    I start again and whatever pain my come
    Today this ends
    I’m forgiving what I’ve done

    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done

    Hands Held High

    Turn my mic up louder I gotta say something
    Lightweights step to the side when we come in
    Feel it in your chest as syllables get pumping
    People on the street to panic and start running
    Words unloose leave chic complete coming
    I jumble my mind and summon the rhyme im dumping
    Healing the blind, I promise to let the sun in
    Sick of the dark ways we march to the drum
    And jump when they tell us they want to see jumping
    Fuck that I want to see some fists pumping
    Miss something, take back what’s yours
    Say something you know that they might attack you for
    Cos im sick of being treated like I had before
    Like im stupid standing for what im standing for
    Like this war’s really just a different brand of war
    Like it doesn’t cater to the rich and abandon the poor
    Like they understand you in the back of the jet
    When you cant put gas in your tank
    These fuckers are laughing their way to the bank
    And cashing a cheque asking you to have some passion
    And show some respect
    For a leader so nervous in an obvious way
    Stuttering and mumbling for news to replay
    And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
    In their living room laughing, like what did he say?

    Amen

    In my living room watching but I am not laughing
    Cos when it gets tense I know what might happen
    World is cold and bold men take action
    Have to react to get blown into fractions
    Ten years old and something to see
    Another kid my age drugged under a jeep
    Taken and bound and found later under a tree
    I wonder if he thought the next one could be me
    Do you see the soldiers are out there today
    To brush the dust from bullet proof vests away
    Its ironic - at times like this you pray
    But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday
    There’s bombs in the buses, bikes, roads
    Inside your market, your shops, your clothes
    My dad - he’s got a lot of fear I know
    But enough pride inside not to let that show
    My brother had a book he would hold with pride
    A little red cover with a broken spine
    On the back he handled a quote inside
    When the rich wage war it’s the poor that die
    Meanwhile the leader just talks away
    Stuttering and mumbling for news to replay
    And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
    Both scared and angry, like what did he say?

    With his hands held high into a sky so blue
    The ocean opens up to swallow you

    No More Sorrow

    Are you lost in your lies?
    Do you tell yourself *I don’t realise*
    Your crusade’s a disguise
    Replace freedom with fear
    You trade money for lives
    I’m aware of what you’ve done


    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced

    I see pain, I see need
    I see liars and thieves
    Abuse power with greed
    I had hope, I believed
    But I’m beginning to think that I’ve been deceived
    You will pay for what you’ve done

    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced

    FACE IT HYPOCRITE

    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced
    Your time has come to be erased

    Valentine’s Day

    My inside’s all turn to ash
    So slow
    And the way as I collapsed
    So cold
    But black wind took them away
    From sight
    Another darkness over day
    That night

    And the clouds above moved closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    But the heartless wind kept blowing

    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    Cos my mind has lost direction
    Somehow

    And the clouds above moved closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    And the ground below grew colder
    As they put you down inside
    But the heartless wind kept blowing

    So now you’re gone and I was wrong
    I never knew what it was like to be alone

    ON A VALENTINE’S DAY

    In Between

    Let me apologise to begin with
    Let me apologise for what I’m about to say
    But trying to be genuine was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Let me apologise to begin with
    Let me apologise for what I’m about to say
    But trying to be someone else
    Was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    Things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing worse than one is none

    Let me apologise to begin with
    Let me apologise for what I’m about to say
    But trying to regain your trust
    Was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    Things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing worse than one is none

    And I cannot explain to you
    In anything I say or do or plan
    Fear is not afraid of you
    But guilt’s a language you can understand
    I cannot explain to you
    In anything I say or do
    But hope the actions speak the words they can

    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    Things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing worse than one is none

    In Pieces


    Telling me to go
    But hands begged me to stay
    Your lips say that you love
    Your eyes say that you hate

    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubting your faith
    What you built
    You lay to waste
    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubting your faith
    All I’ve got’s what you didn’t take

    So I, I won’t be the one, be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone, alone with all your secrets
    And regrets

    Don’t lie

    You promised me the sky
    Then tossed me like a stone
    You wrapped me in your arms
    And chilled me to the bone

    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubting your faith
    All I’ve got’s what you didn’t take

    So I, I won’t be the one, be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone, alone with all your secrets
    And regrets

    Don’t lie

    So I, I won’t be the one, be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone, alone with all your secrets
    And regrets

    Don’t lie

    The Little Things Give You Away

    Water came
    Through the windows
    Up the stairs
    Chilling rain
    Like an ocean
    Everywhere

    Don’t wanna reach for me do you?
    I mean nothing to you
    The little things give you away
    And now there will be no mistaking
    The levees are breaking

    All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water, I do

    Whole decades, generations disappear
    Washed away, as a nation simply stares

    Don’t wanna reach for me do you?
    I mean nothing to you
    The little things give you away
    But now there will be no mistaking
    The levees are breaking

    All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water, I do

    And six feet underground now I, I do

    The little things give you away/ All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you.

    The last part in "In Between" starts with 'For my pride' rather than Between.
    Pretty accurate, million thanks to you.

    Fixed "Valentine's Day"

    Valentine’s Day

    My insides all turn to ash
    So slow
    And the way as I collapsed
    So cold
    But black wind took them away
    From sight
    Another darkness over day
    That night

    And the clouds above moved closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    But the heartless wind kept blowing - blowing

    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    Cause my path has lost direction
    Somehow

    A black wind took you away
    From sight
    Another darkness over day
    That night

    And the clouds above moved closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    And the ground below grew colder
    As they put you down inside
    But the heartless wind kept blowing - blowing

    So now you’re gone and I was wrong
    I never knew what it was like to be alone

    ON A VALENTINE’S DAY (Repeated)

    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    Cause my mind has lost direction
    Somehow (2x)

    Nice work.

    The lyrics are tremendously better than the last two albums. I can't wait to actually listen to them!

    Hey thanks for the gratitude :) for some reason the forums froze for me yesterday so I've only just been able to check the response,

    I must admit in some songs I kinda did 3 lines at a time and tried to remember what I'd heard but I thought I'd put a basis down and then you could modify the imperfections for yourself.

    And yes MTM lyrics > Meteora lyrics

    For 'In Pieces', it kinda sounded like 'Doubt in your faith'. But I might be wrong.

    I have one correction for the lyrics on 'Leave Out All The Rest'

    You said:
    "Don’t be afraid of taking my beating
    I’ve shared what I fear"

    It should be:
    "Don't be afraid
    of taking my beating,
    of shit behind me"

    Sounds a little better and makes a lot more sense. He's telling whoever he is talking to not to be afraid of taking his beatings and not to be afraid of anything bad that happened in his past.

    There is no need to submit your post twice. There is a giant box of bold text above the Submit button that tells you why your post will not immediately show up, please read it

    Nice work.

    I think these are better than both Hybrid Theory and Meteora for the most part. Can't wait to actually hear tyhe songs :lol:

    Hi Man,
    You did a great job job figuring it all out.:thumbsup:

    I found some mistakes, though.

    In Given Up

    This day’s been laid to waste in my disgrace

    Should be:

    Another day has been laid to waste,in my disgrace

    ---------------

    Don’t be afraid of taking my beating
    I’ve shared what I fear

    I think it sound more like:

    Don’t be afraid of taking my beating,
    Of shit that I made


    In Bleed It Out

    Here we go stop the show

    Sounds more like:

    It goes, stop the show!

    -----------------------

    Candy pain on his brand new hearse
    Cant contain all me knows he works
    Fuck this hurts
    I will not, doesn’t matter how hard I try

    Sounds to me like:

    Candy pain on his brand new hearse
    Cant contaminate me, he knows he works
    Heck it hurts
    I won't lie, doesn’t matter how hard I try

    ------------------------------

    So why try ignore again?

    I think it's:

    So why try ignore it? and then


    Hands Held High

    With his hands held high into a sky so blue

    Should be just:

    With hands held high into a sky so blue

    Valentine’s Day

    Cos my mind has lost direction

    Should be:

    'Cause my path has lost direction

    After that it's:

    But black wind took YOU away

    In Between

    At the end:
    For my pride and my promise
    For my lies and how the truth gets in the way

    In Pieces
    You wrapped me in your arms
    Should be:
    You wrapped me in your lies


    That's All

    Thanks

    Ive amended the first post so its correct to what the booklet says (im in australia, got the cd early, last night in fact) what ive changed is in caps lock

    Given Up

    Wake in a sweat again
    This day’s been laid to waste in my disgrace
    Stuck in my head again
    Feels like I’ll never leave this place
    There’s no escape
    I’m my own worst enemy

    I’ve given up
    I’m sick of feeling is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away
    I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me?

    I don’t know what to take
    Thought I was focused but I’m scared
    I’m not prepared
    I hyper ventilate
    Looking for help somehow somewhere
    And no-one cares
    I’m my own worst enemy

    I’ve given up
    I’m sick of feeling is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away
    I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me?

    Put me out of my misery
    Put me out of my misery
    Put me out of my
    Put me out of my fucking misery!

    I’ve given up
    I’m sick of feeling is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away
    I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me?

    Leave Out All The Rest

    I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared
    But no one would listen, cos no one else cared
    After my dreaming, I woke with this fear
    What am I leaving, when im done here?

    So if you’re asking me I want you to know

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Leave out all the rest

    Don’t be afraid IVE TAKEN my beating
    I’ve shared what I MADE
    I’m strong on the surface, not all the way through
    I’ve never been perfect, but neither have you

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself

    I can’t be who you are

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself

    I cant be who you are

    Bleed It Out

    Hey here we go for the hundredth time
    Hand grenade pins in every line
    Throw em up and let something shine
    Going out of my fucking mind
    Filthy mouth no excuse
    Find a new place to hang this noose
    String me up from atop these roofs
    Knot it tight so I wont get loose
    Truth is you can stop and stare
    BLED myself out and no-one cares
    Dug the trench out
    Laid down there with a shovel up out of reach somewhere
    Yeah someone pour it in
    Make it a dirt dance floor again
    Say your prayers and stomp it out
    When they bring that chorus in

    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away

    Here we go stop the show
    CHOPPY WORDS and a sloppy flow
    Shotgun OPERA lock AND load
    Cock it back and then watch it go
    Mama help me I’ve been cursed
    Death is rolling in every verse
    Candy PAINT on his brand new hearse
    Cant contain HIM HE knows he works
    Fuck this hurts
    I wONT LIE, doesn’t matter how hard I try
    Half the words don’t mean a thing
    And I know that I wont be satisfied
    So why try ignore HIM?
    Make it a dirt dance floor again
    Say your prayers and stomp it out
    When they bring that chorus in

    I’ve opened up these scars
    I’ll make you face THIS
    I PULL MYSELF APART
    I’ll make you face this

    Shadow Of The Day

    I close both locks below the window
    I close both blinds and turn away
    Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple
    Sometimes goodbye’s the only way

    And the sun will set for you
    The sun will set for you
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you

    In cards and flowers on your window
    Your friends all plead for you to stay
    Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple
    Sometimes goodbye’s the only way

    And the sun will set for you
    The sun will set for you
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you

    And the shadow AFTER day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you

    What I’ve Done

    In this farewell, there’s no blood, there’s no alibi
    Cause I’ve drawn regret from the truth of a thousand lies
    So let mercy come and wash away

    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done

    Put to rest what you thought of me
    Well I clean this slate
    With the hands of uncertainty
    So let mercy come and wash away

    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done

    For what I’ve done
    I start again and whatever pain my come
    Today this ends
    I’m forgiving what I’ve done

    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done

    Hands Held High

    Turn my mic up louder I gotta say something
    Lightweights step IT ASIDE when we come in
    Feel it in your chest as syllables get pumping
    People on the street THEY PANIC and start running
    Words ON LOOSE LEAF SHEET COMPLETE coming
    I JUMP IN my mind and summon the rhyme im dumping
    Healing the blind, I promise to let the sun in
    Sick of the dark ways we march to the drum
    And jump when they tell us they want to see jumping
    Fuck that I want to see some fists pumping
    RISK something, take back what’s yours
    Say something you know that they might attack you for
    Cos im sick of being treated like I had before
    Like im stupid standing for what im standing for
    Like this war’s really just a different brand of war
    Like it doesn’t cater to the rich and abandon the poor
    Like they understand you in the back of the jet
    When you cant put gas in your tank
    These fuckers are laughing their way to the bank
    And cashing a cheque asking you to have COMPASSION
    And HAVE some respect
    For a leader so nervous in an obvious way
    Stuttering and mumbling for NIGHTLY news to replay
    And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
    In their living room laughing, like what did he say?

    Amen

    In my living room watching but I am not laughing
    Cos when it gets tense I know what might happen
    World is cold and bold men take action
    Have to react OR get blown into fractions
    Ten years old and something to see
    Another kid my age drugged under a jeep
    Taken and bound and found later under a tree
    I wonder if he thought the next one could be me
    Do you see the soldiers are out there today
    To brush the dust from bullet proof vests away
    Its ironic - at times like this you pray
    But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday
    There’s bombs in the buses, bikes, roads
    Inside your market, your shops, your clothes
    My dad - he’s got a lot of fear I know
    But enough pride inside not to let that show
    My brother had a book he would hold with pride
    A little red cover with a broken spine
    On the back he handled a quote inside
    When the rich wage war it’s the poor that die
    Meanwhile the leader just talks away
    Stuttering and mumbling for NIGHTLY news to replay
    And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
    Both scared and angry, like what did he say?

    With his hands held high into a sky so blue
    The ocean opens up to swallow you

    No More Sorrow

    Are you lost in your lies?
    Do you tell yourself *I don’t realise*
    Your CAMPAIGNS a disguise
    Replace freedom with fear
    You trade money for lives
    I’m aware of what you’ve done


    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced

    I see pain, I see need
    I see liars and thieves
    Abuse power with greed
    I had hope, I believed
    But I’m beginning to think that I’ve been deceived
    You will pay for what you’ve done

    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced

    THIEVES AND HYPOCRITES

    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced
    Your time has come to be erased

    Valentine’s Day

    My inside’s all turn to ash
    So slow
    And BLEW Away as I collapsed
    So cold
    A black wind took them away
    From sight
    AND HELD darkness over day
    That night

    And the clouds above moved closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    But the heartless wind kept blowing

    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    CAUSE MY PATH HAD LOST DIRECTION/SOMEHOW
    A BLACK WIND TOOK YOU AWAY/FROM SIGHT
    AND HELD DARKNESS OVER DAY/THAT NIGHT

    And the clouds above moved closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    And the ground below grew colder
    As they put you down inside
    But the heartless wind kept blowing

    So now you’re gone and I was wrong
    I never knew what it was like to be alone

    ON A VALENTINE’S DAY

    In Between

    Let me apologise to begin with
    Let me apologise for what I’m about to say
    But trying to be genuine was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Let me apologise to begin with
    Let me apologise for what I’m about to say
    But trying to be someone else
    Was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    Things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing worse than one is none

    Let me apologise to begin with
    Let me apologise for what I’m about to say
    But trying to regain your trust
    Was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    Things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing worse than one is none

    And I cannot explain to you
    In anything I say or do or plan
    Fear is not afraid of you
    But guilt’s a language you can understand
    I cannot explain to you
    In anything I say or do
    But hope the actions speak the words they can

    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    Things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing worse than one is none

    In Pieces


    Telling me to go
    But hands begged me to stay
    Your lips say that you love
    Your eyes say that you hate

    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubt IN your faith
    What you BUILD
    You lay to waste
    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubt IN your faith
    All I’ve got’s what you didn’t take

    So I, I won’t be the one, be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone, alone with all your secrets
    And regrets

    Don’t lie

    You promised me the sky
    Then tossed me like a stone
    You wrapped me in your arms
    And chilled me to the bone

    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubting your faith
    All I’ve got’s what you didn’t take

    So I, I won’t be the one, be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone, alone with all your secrets
    And regrets

    Don’t lie

    So I, I won’t be the one, be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone, alone with all your secrets
    And regrets

    Don’t lie

    The Little Things Give You Away

    Water GREY
    Through the windows
    Up the stairs
    Chilling rain
    Like an ocean
    Everywhere

    Don’t wanna reach for me do you?
    I mean nothing to you
    The little things give you away
    And now there will be no mistaking
    The levees are breaking

    All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water, I do

    HOPE DECAYS, generations disappear
    Washed away, as a nation simply stares

    Don’t wanna reach for me do you?
    I mean nothing to you
    The little things give you away
    But now there will be no mistaking
    The levees are breaking

    All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water, I do

    And six feet underground now I, I do

    The little things give you away/ All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you.
