this is for you, to hold you close, to keep you close to my heart, i'll scream it until your ears bleed, you'll always have a friend in me. im sorry that i split you open to keep warm between your arms hands heart and lungs but we'll beat the clock black and blue blood red to never give this up and i'll be right here to help you sleep (to help me sleep) to keep you alive (to keep me alive) against all demons. to find hope ina smile to keep holding tight forever when someone becomes everyone when somewhere becomes everywhere (where you are and where you want to be)

    General CommentHer: ... and? That's it? She was in a song and that's why she's so famous? I mean, she didn't save a country... or invent something great... or murder someone?
    Him: Do you know how hard it is to get yourself in a song? Jesus. You gonna eat the rest of those?
    Her: But how could a song make her a legend?
    Him: She'd have been a legend with or without that goddamn song.

    I love that sample.

    General Commenti like the song, but how did you find the lyrics? there's no way you could have transcribed them yourself because a lot of the time it's completely uninteligible.

    General CommentThis song is so great, and the lyrics are amazing. But, like a lot of OTMOP songs, even reading the booklet while listening to this song is almost no help. After about here:

    "this is for you, to hold you close, to keep you close to my heart, i'll scream it until your ears bleed, you'll always have a friend in me. im sorry that i split you open to keep warm between your arms hands heart"

    it just becomes unintelligible, except for a few phrases. but the passion in his screams are just...oh my.
