Hope unkown. Sometimes just waking is surreal.
I walk right through the nameless ones.
I know that hope's unknown.
Sometimes the water feels so real.
As I walk through it fills my lungs, my god, I'm drowning.
This day never seems to end.
This pain, never.
The rage I will not let go.

I hear them calling.
I feel them gnawing out holes through flawless soulds.

So alone. Sometimes I swear that I can hear the taunting of the voiceless ones.
I fear that I alone fear those ceased to feel they're alone inside of this place.
I am the misplaced.
Now every faCe, it looks familiar...
then every face would melt away until...
now everyone, do you know, I know your deception?

    General CommentNot a bad cover. Most bands would probably have ruined the song but Dexter knows AFI too well to do that. Doesn`t have the edge of the original which is one of the best songs by one of the best bands ever.

    General CommentI'm sorry, but this is a bad cover... if you are going to cover a song- u can't murder it...I'm not saying it's bad in the sense that it doesn't sound like the original- cause that isn't the point of most covers, but they DO try and make it sound the same- it only shows just how bad the singer's voice is in comparison to AFI's... AFI blows them out of the water... bad cover for them to do...makes them sound bad

    General Commentdude, i dunno wtf u r talking about. dexters voice rules and so does daveys, it is just 2 diff voices. as for making it sound the same. on a good cover, u should keep the original sound tyhere too...hence jade, and davey going and doing back up vocals in the studio w/ dexter and noodles. and plus, though this version lacks the edge in the original, it makes up for it w/ its increased speed.

    General CommentOK, this is starting to bother me, but just so everyone knows this Offspring does a great version of this song. And another thing, AFI DID NOT ORIGINALLY WRITE, SING, OR PRODUCE THIS SONG! It was Glenn Danzig of the Misfits. AFI has this song on their all hallows E.P. and all the songs on that CD are misfits covers. Okay i got that off my back. Hi i'm new here.

    General CommentOh Boy do i feel stupid
    sorry about that apparently AFI is the original band to do it. Feel free to kill me as you wish. Well either way, i love the song, both versions. Sorry the site that i got the information on is f***ed up. Umm go ahead and call me stupid, i deserve it.

    General Commentanyway, i have to agree and disagree with most of you. yes, i agree that dexter cannot and i doubt ever will sound like havok, whether you consiter that good or bad. instrumentally though, this song kicks AFI's ass. i don't know about the misfit's version because honestly I don't listen to them :/
