"This Present Darkness" as written by and Hunter/arnold/lamarca/spicuzza/herrick/hager....
In this present darkness I fall
Fall upon broken knees
Crawl through weight, depression
Haunted by an unborn ghost I'll never know your fears

Never see me in your eyes
Curse the one that stole your name from me
This is the monster that they created
Scratch to the underside

The underside of this darkness
From seconds of your conception
Minutes leading your death
Seconds will shackle me

And turn eyes red I will
Constantly endure the pain of it's creation
How can i lie awake
Grace How can i lie awake

My love will stay dead
In this present darkness I fall

    General CommentYeah, GrinninVillain6, I agree with your interpritation.
    As much as I love Chimaira, it seems that their lyrical style has gone down hill, some, since this album.

    General Commenteven if their lyrics are going down hill....most people can't understand them anyway(wich makes a song kick ass) and the music make up for what the lyrics destroy ten fold.

    General CommentI think chimaira's lyrics have gone down hill since this album too... but omg the guitar has improved, and the drumming has always been in-humainly good.
    I think this will always be my fave chimaira album (n I love everything theyv braught out so far)
    Get the extended one on The Dehumanising Process DVD... Roxxness.
    So much anger...
