Lyrics Edit

    Been here before
    Been here before
    Been here before
    Been here before
    Been here before
    Been here before
    Been here before
    
    Been here before, couldn't say I liked it
    Do I start writing all this down?
    Just let me plug you into my world
    Can't you help me be uncrazy?
    
         Name this for me, heat the cold air
         Take the chill off of my life
         And if I could, I'd turn my eyes
         To look inside to see what's comin'
    
              It comes alive
              It comes alive
              It comes alive
              And I die a little more
              It comes alive
              Each moment here I die a little more
    
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   It comes alive	
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   Takes me away
    
    Been here before
    Been here before
    
    I'm frantic in your soothing arms 
    I cannot sleep in this down-filled world
    I've found safety in this loneliness
    But I can not stand it anymore
    
         Cross my heart hope not to die
         Swallow evil, ride the sky
         Lose myself in a crowded room
         You fool, you fool, it will be here soon
    
              It comes alive
              It comes alive
              It comes alive
              And I die a little more
              It comes alive
              Each moment here I die a little more
    
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   It comes alive	
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   Treats me this way
                   And I wait for this train
                   Toes over the line
                   And then the unnamed feeling
                   Takes me away
    
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   It comes alive	
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   Treats me this way
                   And I wait for this train
                   Toes over the line
                   And then the unnamed feeling
                   Takes me away
    
    Get the fuck out of here
    I just wanna get the fuck away from me
    I rage, I glaze, I hurt, I hate
    I hate it all, why? Why? Why me?
    
    I cannot sleep with a head like this
    I wanna cry, I wanna scream
    I rage, I glaze, I hurt, I hate
    I wanna hate it all away
    
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   It comes alive	
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   Treats me this way
                   And I wait for this train
                   Toes over the line
                   And then the unnamed feeling
                   Takes me away
                   Yeah, takes me away
    
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   It comes alive
                   Then the unnamed feeling
                   Takes me away
