General Information

Written by: A. Lee, T. Balsamo


The guitar part by Balsamo makes this song remarkable. The piano playing and the vocals by Amy remind us of Missing. When the 7-string guitar takes over, we are a bit reminded of Korn (of which Evanescence have covered Thoughtless on Anywhere But Home). The intro features a small clip from Tuna Afternoon.

Amy's description of the song: [1]

"The song is about some of my experiences as a teenager with close-mindedness. I thought the people around me seemed lost in a world that I really didn't belong in. It's kind of spiritual. We originally called the track 'Tuna Afternoon', because I made tuna noodle casserole that day. We still call the song 'Tuna Afternoon'. Sometimes it's hard to get past that working title."

Lyrics

(You know you're not the only one)

When they all come crashing down - midflight
You know you're not the only one
When they're so alone
they find a back door out of life
You know you're not the only one

We're all grieving
Lost and bleeding

All our lives
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies
I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

So afraid to open your eyes - hypnotized
You know you're not the only one
Never understood this life
And you're right I don't deserve
But you know I'm not the only one

We're all grieving
Lost and bleeding

All our lives
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies
I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

Don't look down
Don't look into the eyes
of the world beneath you
Don't look down,
You'll fall down,
You'll become their sacrifice
Right or wrong
Can't hold onto the fear
that I'm lost without you
If I can't feel,I'm not mine,
I'm not real

All our lives
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies
I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me
