"Trance" as written by and Rodney Roy/daniels Jerkins....
You suck the life
Out of the crowd
What side of town
I see you climb around and
Of course, you were one in the same
You suck the life
Out of the room
With nearly a glance
You are the slave of a clone
Of a petrified fool out of throne

So here I am
You're in a trance
You're in a trance
You betrayed me
You're in a trance
You're in a trance

You're in a trance
You're in a trance
You still need me
You're in a trance
You're in a trance

Be careful
We're watching
And you can feel us talking
Real patience and sorrow
You'll never see us let go

You suck the life
Out of the new
With all that you do
They are not even driven to find their own identity
You stripped the joy
Out of the souls
With the thought of use
You are the fashion of now
And the sickened flavor of cool

So here I am
You're in a trance
You're in a trance
You betrayed me
You're in a trance
You're in a trance

You're in a trance
You're in a trance
You still need me
You're in a trance
You're in a trance

Be careful
We're watching
And you can feel us talking
Real patience and sorrow
You'll never see us let go

We'll tear your heart right out of your chest
You're already dead
You can surrender
Save the extent of your old victories
We'll steal the fire out of your eyes
Turn it on you
We are the thorn in your side
And a bullet to blow you apart

    General Commenti get the vibe that the song is about a person who is a follower. kinda like all the avril wannabes. this kinda gives it away. "you are the fashion of now and the sickening flavor of cool " you dress the way you do to be cool, and the line "your in a trance" is trying to say that she wont admit that shes a follower or whatever.

    General CommentThese lyrics are incorrect.

    you suck the life out of the crowd, without a sound
    I see your kind all around and of course your all one in the same

    you suck the life out of a room with nearly a glance
    you are the slave of a clone of a petrified fool on a throne

    chorus:
    So, shame on you
    you're in a trance, you're in a trance
    (you betray me)
    your in a trance, your in a trance
    (you're not the same))
    your in a trance, your in a trance
    (you still need me)
    your in a trance, your in a trance
    be careful, we're watching and you can feel us stalking
    we're patience and thorough
    you'll never see us let go

    you suck the life out of the new, with all that you do
    they are naive and are driven to find there own identity

    you strip the joy out of their souls, with all of your rules
    you are the fashion of now and the sickening flavor of cool

    (Repeat Chorus)

    we'll tear your heart right out of your chest your allready dead
    and you can surrender or savor the scent of your old victories

    we'll steal the fire out of your eyes and turn it on you
    we are the thorn in your side and the bullet to blow you apart
    Blow you apart!!!

    ^ that's corrected this is my favorite TJT song.
    of all it's just so powerful. idk i love it. its like in school sometimes the 'coolest people' are the worst people of all and everyone is deceived thinking the way to be is evil and cold...when in reality if everyone 'loved' eachother (theme of the whole album) maybe society wouldn't be the same.

    General CommentGreat song, shame there aren't so many comments.

    To me, it seems that the lyrics are about art, and how it's exploited for public image. If you listen to the way the lines in brackets are sung during the song, they seem distant, as if they can't penetrate the mind of the listener quite so easily as the blunt, prominent lines can. It's almost as if undertones in music are bypassed as 'too hard to think about' So in that respect, I agree with you all, it is about followers.

    However, I get the feeling that there's something more. It seems as though it might also be aimed brutally at the bands out there that, debatably, compromise the meaning and depth of a song for a catchier, more 'scene' one that appeals to the 'fashionable'. For example, the way the lyrics are formed - 'So shame on you' It hints at superiority, as if judging one band above another. Another example is

    'you strip the joy out of their souls, with all of your rules
    you are the fashion of now and the sickening flavor of cool'

    Stripping the joy out of their souls, is quite blatantly referring to the more 'emo' bands that focus on depression, and change the way that those that follow it dress, act and behave. Also 'their' is a very impersonal pronoun, and hints that the bands in question don't actually care all that much about their fans. Further more, the lyric 'on a throne' shows the superiority, and how the fans worship them, a contrast to the apparent disdain the hypothetical band shows.

    Just a few thoughts, keen to hear your opinions.
