The song itself is a POV track, trying to see things from Julian's point of view. It's a more sad song, speaking about the absence of family, loved ones, and life in general. How the dread of all of this ending and being handed over to the US government hangs over him every day.

Lyrics

Verse 1
Feeling cold now, but got the heater on
Feeling sold out, even though I'm keeping strong
But can I hold out? When every bit of freedom's gone
They want me rolled out, never to sing freedoms song
I wanna see the sky, I wanna feel the rain
But gotta keep away from windows, that's some window pain
just a shame, couldn't plan out all our dreams
But now I scream, cuz there's a man in the machine
But the train is off tracks, and damn it's losing steam
I wanna call Christine, I haven't seen since 0-13
I'm missing life like three strikes
Each night seems like three nights
Ain't right, can't fight, spaced like
hate life, wanting to be snake like
Sheddin off this grey life
In the dark, can't make light
But where I'm heading now is brake lights
Where I'm heading now they break lights

Chorus
Counting days like... Break lights
Feelin weight like... Break lights
Had a great life... Break lights
Break lights... Break lights
Out of place like... Break lights
In my face like... Break lights
Counting days like... Break lights
Break lights... Break Lights

Verse 2
sit here asking what have I done
If these strings were cut, I'd see my son
and If I could just fly from this place
Then I’d hold you in my love embrace
And If I could just speak to you now
I’d renew my vow and be in the now
Is this me in denial?
Wanna remove stress from your brow and
pay you back someway somehow but
It's painted black, can't see the way back now but
How's the house, and how's ya mom? I doubt the
Way the media portrays me, makes you hate me
but to think you see that daily, makes me crazy
that just aint me...

Chorus
Counting days like... Break lights
Feelin weight like... Break lights
Had a great life... Break lights
Break lights... Break lights
Out of place like... Break lights
In my face like... Break lights
Counting days like... Break lights
Break lights... Break Lights

Why#Unity4J matters

Free speech and freedom of press is necessary for a free people. It should worry everybody, regardless of political bent, how Julian Assange is being treated. He has committed no crimes. He is a truth-sayer, and for that reason alone he is being hunted.
I strongly encourage each and every one of you to speak out about this to any/all followers your have on your different social media accounts. We might not think that it amounts to much, but it really does. It doesn't matter what you have to offer. You're artist? Make some art. A singer? Sing. Rapper? Rap. Whatever you have to give, give it. I can't overstate it enough how important this is!
The information he has shared isn't he-said-she-said bull shit... It's the unadulterated truth. https://wikileaks.org/
We need to speak out and show our solidarity! http://unity4j.com/
