Song Lyrics

Hey you caught me in a coma

And I don`t think I wanna

Ever come back to again

Kinda like it in a coma

`Cause no one`s ever gonna

Oh, make me come back to this...

world again

Now I feel as if I`m floating away

I can`t feel all the pressure

And I like it this way

But my body`s callin`

My body`s callin`

Won`t ya come back to this...

world again

Suspended deep in a sea of black

I`ve got the light at the end

I`ve got the bones on the mast

Well I`ve gone sailin`,

I`ve gone sailin`

I could leave so easily

While friends are calling back to me

I said they`re

They`re leaving it all up to me

When all I needed was clarity

And someone to tell me



Slippin` farther an farther away

It`s a miracle how long we can stay

In a world our minds created

In a world that`s full of sh*t






Please understand me

I`m climbin` through the wreackage

Of all my twisted dreams

But this cheap investigation just

Can`t stifle all my screams

And I`m waitin` at the crossroads

Waiting for you

Waiting for you


No one`s gonna bother me anymore

No one`s gonna mess with my head no more

I can`t understand what all the fightin`s for

But it`s so nice here down off the shore

I wish you could see this

`Cause there`s nothing to see

It`s peaceful here and it`s fine with me

Not like the world where I used to live




Ya live your life like it`s a coma

So won`t you tell me why we`d wanna

With all the reasons you give it`s

It`s kinda hard to believe

But who am I to tell you that I`ve

Seen any reason why you should stay

Matbe we`d be better off

Without you anyway

You got a one way ticket

On your last chance ride

Gotta one way ticket

To your suicide

Gotta one way ticket

An there`s no way out alive

An all this crass communication

That has left you in the cold

Isn`t much for consolation

When you feel so weak and old

But is home is where the heart is

Then there`s stories to be told

No you don`t need a doctor

No one else can heal your soul

Got your mind in submission

Got your life on the line

But nobody pulled the trigger

They just stepped aside

They be down by the water

While you watch `em waving goodbye

They be callin` in the morning

They be hangin` on the phone

They be waiting for an answer

When you know nobody`s home

And when the bell`s stopped ringing

It was nobody`s fault but your own

There were always ample warnings

There were always subtle signs

And you would have seen it comin`

But we gave you too much time

And when you said

That no one`s listening

Why`d your best friend drop a dime

Sometimes we get so tired of waiting

For a way to spend our time

An "It`s so easy" to be social

"It`s so easy" to be cool

Yeah it`s easy to be hungry

When you ain`t got sh*t to lose

And I wish that I could help you

With what you hope to find

But I`m still out here waiting

Watching reruns of my life

When you reach the point of breaking

Know it`s gonna take some time

To heal the broken memories

That another man would need

Just to survive
