Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ha oh
I was looking for a breath of life
A little touch of heavenly light
But all the choirs in my head sang "no"
To get a dream of life again
A little of vision of the start and the end
But all the choirs in my head sang "no".
Verse 2
But I only needed one more touch
Another taste of heavenly rush
And I believe, I believe it so
And I only needed one more touch
Another taste of devouring rush
And I believe, I believe it so
Verse 3
Whose side am I on, whose side am I?
Whose side am I on, whose side am I?
Verse 4
And the fever began to spread
From my heart down to my legs
But the room was so quiet oh
And although I wasn't losing my mind
It was a chorus so sublime
But the room is too quiet (Oh, the fever)
Verse 5
I was looking for a breath of life,
A little touch of heavenly light
But all the choirs in my head sang "no" (I believe it)
To get a dream of life again
A little vision of the start and the end
But all the choirs in my head sang "no".
Verse 6
Ha oh
Ha oh
It's a harder way
And it's come to claim her
And I always say
We should be together
I can see below
'Cause there's something in here
And if you are gone
I will not belong here
Verse 7
And I started to hear it again
But this time it wasn't the end
And the room was so quiet, oh
And my heart is a hollow plain
For the devil to dance again
And the room was too quiet, oh
Verse 8
I was looking for a breath of life
A little touch of heavenly light
But all the choirs in my head sang "no"
