"Stained Silver" as written by and John Robert Conners Caleb Scofield....
Pop culture with a gun
Watch it wheeze in the air like a dying balloon
A mistake dawned on me
And the rest of my tribe "your wish is our command"
No really, its OK
Give yourself a group hug and a pat on the back
No really, it's all right
Pose your best for a shot from the firing squad
Choosing my defense
I'll stay on the fence

Sneak a gun through the gates of heaven
Raiding tomorrow's prayers with a stained silver bullet
Oh how it kills me waiting to follow through
On a dare

Pop culture with a pill
Watch it make all the worms in your mind disappear
Maybe so, maybe not
Never sure if it's me underneath the white sheet
Halloween, Halloween
With a mask I can be your new friend for a while
Trick or treat, trick or treat
There's a razor blade inside your candy bar

Pop culture on your skin
You cannot keep your fingers away from your face
Memories are haunting me
Like fish floating dead at the top of a tank

    General CommentI think this is some of Cave In's best yet... all the new stuff (Lost in the Air, Lift Off, Bigger Riff) is great. I messed up a couple of the lyrics here, but they're going to fix them hopefully. And I should have Bigger Riff lyrics up shortly as well.

    General CommentGod youre right those lyrics are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wrong!

    Below are the correct lyrics.


    Pop culture with a pin
    Watch it wheeze in the air like a dying balloon
    A mistake dawned on me
    And the rest of my tribe
    Your wish is our command
    No really, it's ok
    Give yourselves a group hug and a pat on the back
    No really, it's alright
    Pose your best for the shot from the firing squad

    Choosing my defence
    I'll stay on the fence

    Sneak a gun through the gates of heaven
    Failing tomorrow's prayer
    Stained silver bullet how it kills me
    Waiting to follow through
    On a dare

    Pop culture, with a pin
    Watch it make all the worms in your mind disappear
    Maybe so, maybe not
    Never sure if it's me underneath the white sheet
    Halloween, Halloween
    With a mask I can be your new friend for a while
    Trick or treat, trick or treat
    There's a razorblade inside your candy bar

    Choosing my defence
    I'll stay on the fence

    Sneak a gun through the gates of heaven
    Failing tomorrow's prayer
    Stained silver bullet how it kills me
    Waiting to follow through
    On a dare

    Pop culture on your skin
    You cannot keep your fingers away from your face
    Memories haunting me
    Like a fish floating dead at the top of a tank

    (repeats bits of bridge and chorus throughout)

    General CommentThe line "Sneak a gun through the gates of heaven
    failing tomorrow's prayer" is pretty kick ass.

    General CommentThis song is about suicide.

    And godsendconspirator, yours is wrong too, because at the second verse its:
    "Pop culture, with a PILL" :).

    He mostly aims at the fact that these lately years, the suicide amount is gone up so high, it has become a "pop culture".
