This Is Emotion


I was waiting for something
I was listening to my breathing
Like a man listening to life

I was looking for fire
It could take me or leave me
It could all just burn away

The oxygen law
It remains me

I'd been surrounded for hours
By the sound of thinking metal
And I knew something was wrong

I can tell you what fear is
It is the smell of burning
And I'd been close once before

I waited a long time
How I survived God only knows
It seemed like forever
How I survived God only knows
I don't like the memory
How I survived God only knows
How I survived God only knows

I remember the feeling
I'll remember forever
How it all just came apart

I don't believe in praying
I don't believe in a God
Now I quetion everything

The dreamer is gone
I'm an old man

I could tell you of horror
I could show you the pieces
But I just want to forget

I'm not sure if I saw it
I'm not sure if I heard it
I just screamed 'I can't get out'
'I can't get out
