victory draws closer as death caves in around me. the cracks in your face reveal everything i thought was true. the lies of me and you. the song quickens pace. the race of time taking effect. this love's a hole infecting virus. with lack of commitment and true confession. it's my fault as much as it's yours. and there's blood covering me, only so i can see through it. just enough to forgive you. death is all around, i feel it in the air. i hear the song and take the pain. let's skip the part about you and me fighting. buy thee ocean. wondering what to do. let's just pretend i never meant to hurt you. wish i never felt this way. tell me how love's supposed to be and why you've been here. the fire's out tonight, the coal is gone. your decision effecting the fall. the leaves are dead and so are we. winter in my heart, darkness in my mind. this is when you say life hurts. make the pain go away. you open the door, step out on the grass. become a silhouette in the moonlight. you light a spark in my heart and my mind. walk to the edge of the cliff, staring at the stars and the ocean.

    General CommentThis song breaks my heart everytime I hear it. "The cracks in your face" is make-up; the girl must have been superficial, and had no concept of commitment. He says it's his fault because he allowed himself to fall for such a girl. The screams and dark melodies in this song are so torturous and agonizing, and that is why this reminds me of the pain of being betrayed by your love, and of losing that love... This is hardcore emo at its best. I can't possibly imagine what torment Suffering endured that caused him to create such a painfully, emotionally violent, yet utterly beautiful, song, but it has helped me through my own seemingly endless, bleak emotional winters.
