Senses Fail - Lifeboats Lyrics




I just want to feel alive.
And love myself from the in and the outside.
'Cause every time that I start to feel whole,
I knock myself on the ground because it's all that I've known

Just like the streets burn a hole through your shoe.
My soul has been worn out too,
I'm 25 and I still don't fit in
Directionless, like a blind man painting

Mother I'm so sorry, I can't go on like this.
The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.
What's the point of falling in love?
If I don't love myself.
What's the point of being alive if all I want is out.

So I thought that it only feels right
To make the decisions that endanger my life.
Late late at night under black and blue moons.
I question in the reasons that I self-abuse.

I'm so pathetic.
It makes me sick.
I'm a fingerless pianist.
I see reflections.
I clench my fists.
I'm a violin without the strings.

Mother I'm so sorry, I can't go on like this.
The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.
What's the point of falling in love?
If I don't love myself.
What's the point of being alive if all I want is out.

There is no love.
There's only this:
Just lust and lies, and selfishness.
A black hole where the sun once was.
I'm never falling back in love.
'Cause it has never been enough.

Ever since I've been a young boy I was alone
Now that I've become a man, the feeling's grown.
Through the therapy and through the pills, I can't let go.
But what about the fuckin fact:
I'm still alone.

What do you do when you got nothing left?
Give up! Give up! And hope for the best!
I fell into the ocean, I and I feel sick,
Waiting on a nameless rescue ship.

What do you do when you got nothing left?
Give up! Give up! And hope for the best!
I fell into the ocean, I and I feel sick,
Waiting on a nameless rescue ship.

Mother I'm so sorry, I can't go on like this.
The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.
What's the point of falling in love?
If I don't love myself.
What's the point of being alive if all I want is out

Senses Fail Lifeboats Comments
  1. EMFS

    I own every album and this by far the best mix of clean and screamed vocals

  2. DUshawn69

    Here we are in 2019 still waiting for senses fail to get the recognition they deserve pretty damn sad.

  3. Marco Havok

    Underrated album.

  4. Mak O'Malley

    I don't understand the criticism for this album.. My ex bought this for me in 2012 and totally fell in love with it. Great work by Senses Fail.

  5. Joseph Wilcock

    Lets set up CAMP!! looks like this is going to be HOME for a While!!!

  6. Wesley Haas

    such a sick song! feel like this album and follow your bliss dont get any recognition they are both real good, have some bangers on them! like war paint on fyb and so many others to name between the 2

  7. Maarten Van Gestel

    This:
    What do you do when you got nothing left?
    Give up! Give up! And hope for the best!
    I fell into the ocean, I and I feel sick,
    Waiting on a nameless rescue ship.
    Reminded me of this:
    What the hell will happen now?
    I really don't know man!
    We'll do what we've always done?
    Shut our eyes and hope for the best?
    NO! We're gonna face this
    We'll step out onto the tracks
    And stare it right in the face
    THOU SHALL NOT PASS!

    Yannie Angerer

    Senses Shikari Crossover LMAO

  8. Kaine Wauchevy

    Whats the point in being alive if all i want is liposuction

  9. Ryan Kraft

    They really came hard in this song, but I couldnt get into this album. A lot sounds the same with real somilar hooks and chorus'. Metal bands are similar with songs melding into one another and never having much difference, YET THIS IS SENSES FAIL! STICK to good old Emo / Screamo roots; Let it Enfold You just plainly rules; every song I love; they need to keep up with their Emo!!!

  10. Chris Sellers

    is that a freeze frame from ,lethal weapon 2?

  11. DoubIeRose

    "this a pity that has played once in love" would make no sense whatsoever, especially since it precedes "now that I've become a man, the feeling's grown"
    however, both lines sound plausible

    Cache Phish

    He says "Ever since I been a young boy, I was alone"

  12. Andy Guzman

    this whole song is just "Holy Fuck... That's some powerful stuff"

  13. Stoney Wan Kenobi

    you know on the CD lyric pamphlet is says "Ever since i was a young boy, i was alone" and it would only make sense for the line afterwords

  14. Andrea Valdez

    haha get yo facts straight. u wrong

  15. Joe Bova

    @MichigMike15
    You're an idiot. That doesn't even make sense. The dude has the lyrics right

  16. Chuckle Drums

    glad i'm not the only person one thinks it was recorded badly. Good album, badly recorded.

  17. Brent Gunn

    without a doubt their heaviest record yet. so fucking good.

    Michael Willis

    Brent Gunn Nah fam that would be Renacer. This album was pretty good tho

  18. Corey Dalrymple

    Love the song, love the album...... I just wish they didn't record it with a flip phone..

  19. MsDevilRocks

    I question in the reasons that I self-abuse. god how many times have i done that.

  20. MsDevilRocks

    the lyrics are amazing they remind me so much that this world isn't perfect and it reminds me of my life.

  21. MsDevilRocks

    FUCKIN AMAZIN!! <33333

  22. Zack Neves

    That is actually one of the best guitar riffs I've ever heard, regardless of it's simplicity. They really showed that less can be more through this song. Kickaaaass :P

  23. Greg Killian

    they really went hardcore this album. and it worked :)

  24. MUSiCL0VE95

    i fell into the ocean EYE* and i feel sick

  25. Marius Sandu

    this song is bad effin ass.

  26. OMGitsDSypl

    This is one of their best songs :o. I still like Lungs Like Gallows more though

  27. Emily Burdick

    i don't really like this song... senses fail just reminds me of whiny guys.
