"Figure 8" as written by Jason Singleton, James Fukai, Joshua Moates and Kevin Palmer....
See that face from across the room
And I can feel you're nothing
Show your face it's not hard to see
Intention's pale it's blinding

Stop (stop) from the place I've been
No good for the shape I'm in
I'm slow to the race you win
You want to take me out
Stop (stop) with your face off in
My space and the wicked descend
No taste for the place I'm in
You need to stop... Stop!

I am all you need to know
And I'm everywhere you go
No one can save you now
When it all comes around

I am everything you see
And I'm what you'll never be
No one can save you now
When it all comes around

Show your face and stare at me
And I can feel you glaring
Showing up and preparing me
You're the one I'll bury

Stop (stop) from the place I've been
No good for the shape I'm in
I'm slow to the race you win
You want to take me out
Stop (stop) with your face off in
My space and the wicked descend
No taste for the place I'm in
You need to stop... Stop!

And I am all you need to know
And I'm everywhere you go
No one can save you now
When it all comes around

And I am everything you see
And I'm what you'll never be
No one can save you now
When it all comes around

Take you down
Leave you fallen faceless
Hurt and leave you down
Fall, break you now
Leave you fallen faceless
Hurt and take you down
want to take you down

I am all you need to know
I am everywhere you go
No one can save you now
When it all comes around

I am everything you see
I am what you'll never be
No one can save you now
When it all comes around

    General CommentYeah I agree with you Sillen. It's about a person who he was in love with but she did something to him that made him feel horrible. And this song is about one day she'll get what she deserves.

    General CommentAwesome song, my favorite from Trust Co. Just saw them live, and this song rocked. I think it's about getting revenge and how kharma will come back to get you.

    General CommentI agree with Sillen as well. I see this as "what comes around, goes around" and maybe this person he loved will someday realize what she lost. That he could of been the person that she needed so much but took it for granted.

    "I am all you need to know
    I am everywhere you go
    no one can save you now
    when it all comes around"

    This makes me think that when she truly discovers who she is she'll realize that this the person she wanted to be with. And by then it'll be too late.

    It seems like all the relationships I'm in seem to be at the "wrong time, wrong place" so I can really empathize with this song. That when I love someone, they don't realize how good it can be until they push me too far away.

    General CommentThis is indeed a song about revenge or someone getting what they deserve. It's just like a "Figure 8", everything eventually goes back around in the same circle.

    General CommentI can relate to this song. There is this one guy who I love more than anything but I'm not sure where things are going between us. I know he wants to be with someone because he told me, but yet I am right there and he won't fall my way. He acts a little like he likes me, but I don't know. I can't keep just waiting forever and ruin my life. But I think once I finally do find someone, I think he is going to look back a realize what he could have had!
