Been here before [x4]

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
It comes alive
It comes alive
Each moment here I die a little more
Ooh, I die, I die, I die a little more

Then the unnamed feeling
It comes alive
Then the unnamed feeling
Takes me away

Been here before [x4]

I'm frantic in your soothing arms
I cannot sleep in this down filled world
I've found safety in this loneliness
But I cannot stand it anymore

Cross my heart and 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
It comes alive
It comes alive
Each moment here I die a little more
Ooh, I die, I die, 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
Takes me

Then the unnamed feeling
It comes alive
Then the unnamed feeling
Takes me away
Yeah, takes me away

Get the f*ck out of here
I just wanna get the f*ck 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
Then I wait for this train
My toes are over the line
Then the unnamed feeling
Takes me away
Yeah, takes me away

Then the unnamed feeling
Takes me away

Song facts
