this page I turn
this page I burn off
this scene frame
to keep it far away
stop and breathe a long extension
the pace might slightly tilt
turn and face this wrong dimension
of faces that were once known
how can you honestly say
that you're content with me
for the first time
set this down
right before you
this page I turn
comes unwound
all around you
this scene I frame
crashing down
for the first time
set this down
in all its worth
the words fall faster
the meaning I saw
couldn't fall farther
from the truth
in this brief moment away
the process speeds too slow
without this comfort in me
the flame burns too low
how can you honestly say
that you're content with me

    General CommentI love this band! ^__^

    Hmm I think this song is about something faked discovered. The person was trying to go along with it as it brought "comfort" to him, but it was wrong, and eventually he felt discontent and couldn't take it. Meh, at least that's what I think.

    General CommentI saw them play the chance in poughkeepsie connecticut. It was the most emotional, amazing live performance I've ever seen.

    General CommentI saw them play live as well. The singers voice was so good I couldn't believe it was live and right in front of me at first. I was REALLY good! After that I bought one of their albums at the show and downloaded the rest. Really great band.
