"Nerdy" as written by Thomas Michael Fletcher, James Elliot Bourne and Charles Robert Simpson....
Why do your eyes paralyze me
What makes me feel this way
Just carry me away with silence and heartbeats
As rapid thinking about your embrace

And how it makes me feel
I just want to feel this way forever
Sleep on portraits painted as perfect as you
Why have I been given the chance to fly

When I'm not with you I feel lesser alone
I remember your face / imprinted on angels
Your voice as beautiful / as the sounds of waves
Crashing against my heart

Time slows down when you look at me
I'm infatuated with this / infatuated with you
It's so hard for me to understand why
I hadn't found you before don't dull away
Hold my hand

    General Commentthis song can be summed up by one word "Masterpiece". A textbook hardcore song taken to the next level. They have written the book and added chapters. Its the perfect core love song. Great brakedown.

    General CommentThis song is just amazing, hell, Poison The Well is amazing. The painful lyrics are really inspiring and influential. Opposite Of December is definitely their best album by far. I think they screwed up a bit with Tear From The Red, not so much the music, but the lyrics were dissapointing and uncreative compared to Opposite Of December's work

    General CommentI saw the band live about a weak ago in Tallahasse, when the played this song, I had a near emotional release. Reminds me of someone I know and care for a great deal.
