No haven now as I watch it pour from everywhere.
Just like the storm that has come out of thin air.
Gentle caresses, just as paper thin -frail
and only- lack the strength to hold.
What if could go to sleep for days,
would you count the hours,
or would your restlessness consume fading memories of me?
Fall into open arms that offer their protection.
Quick to deny that their open to deceit.
Long to believe that support will never cease.
Bitter and lonely, those they've left before.
The vibrant heart so quickly growing old,
the warmest eyes so quickly growing cold.
Just a glance for they don't care to see what becomes of me.

    General CommentDavey Havok just has a way of making everything sound so beautiful.
    "The vibrant heart so quickly growing old." But as long as it's growing old with you .. than it's growing old happy.

    General CommentAFI is my favorite band of all time. They put so much meaning into each of their songs. And i love how they let you come to your own conclusion of what the meaning of the song is.

    General CommentPunk in drublic says... to me, this song represents two people's friendship (maybe between a christian or a religious person to an atheist) and how this person doesn't really care about the atheist type... like it's just a friendship based on fun, not respect or love.

    General CommentJust love this song. Especially the chorus and the breakdown. This, God Called in Sick Today and Midnight Sun make for the perfect ending to Black Sails.

    General CommentI think the song is kind of straight forward it seems to be asking the question of if AFI took a long break would you still remember them or after the band stops making music will you remember them and also it seems to talk about people who don't care about him because he looks or acts differently and they never really get to know him.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about being betrayed by someone close to you. "Fall into open arms that offer their protection. Quick to deny that their open to deceit." And after being betrayed, the chorus of the song refers to whether anybody will remember him or help him, or if they will just forget about him and move on with their lives.
