Gouge out my eyes / pestilence
lack of love binds / propagate / the strife you desire
keep me from forced self depiction / abhorate
self assured I am no more / take this away from me once more / thirsted for something that never existed
Complacent / I am abomination / I replace
absence of malice / sew my mouth shut
the silent sound of the end / I drown in tears
Sinking in dreams / Of what I once owned
I avoid the setting of the sun (x2)
Memories fade as you did once before
Stole hope from right under my eyes
Accomplice of my death

    General CommentThis song obviously is about something happening on Dec 23, 93 probably something about suicide. Then it says about he is sad "drowning in my tears." I think that the whole cd is about this person commiting suicide because it kind of goes from really sad to him realizing it is not his fault...also on the back of the cd cover it says This album is dedicated to someone which could be the person that died.

    General CommentI think this song is a lot about what BleedingSoul said but along with the feelings of being trapped or locked in this world (here comes the 12/23/93 locker combination?) And of trying to avoid the hurts and the pains but coming to realization that you cant and the only way out is up or down. "Accomplice of my death"

    General Commenti don't believe it has anything to do with a locker combination.. it's a date.. december 23rd, 1993.. who the hell knows what happened that day, but it must've been fierce.. great song though

    General Commenti never thought of the idea of a locker combonation. that's really interesting... i don't know if it's true, but still interesting. i saw poison the well live and their energy was crazy. twas a good night. they played this song, i do believe. they went crazy.

    General CommentIt's definitly a date...I don't think locker combo's go up to 93 anyways, but it's been 5 years since i had a locker so i forget. I didn't realize so many people liked PTW..If they go on TRL I will run far away

    General CommentWell I guess its probably not a combo more likely a Date like you said. But hey isnt music supposed to be enterperted by each person? Plus i dont see how the date fits in. wait now i do, might be the date of someones death?? who knows these guys just kick ass thats all i Know. I hope they NEVER go to TRL although i dont think they would their too un-TRL...
