"Waitress" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
These faces have fallen here before
Tired and blue
A light that bleeds unforgiving shadows
Her olive eyes repeat failure in every glare

A failure that mirrors itself with a foreign stare
Hold it together you'll find your peace
But the pieces are burnt shells that frame regret on every wall
Reflections of olive eyes pierce hole through her haunted heart

She hates that stare
Her smiling face defense to the world
A world filled with olive eyes that fram regret on every face

    General Commentyou bite your tongue romeo. the band released a statement around the release of A-Types essentially saying that music in general is their passion and as long as they are making it in some form or another, they are more than satisfied. open up your mind and learn to appreciate art, friend.

    General Commentnew hopesfall definately does not suck. the first song i heard off this cd was the bending. then escape pod for intangibles. at first i hated it but now i truly apreciate it. you just need to listen to it more.
    as for the new singer, he sounds alot like doug did, but uses more talking and less screaming.
    great song.

    General Commentim not really sure i got the whole meaning of the song
    the way its written is amazing, they take a subject like covering up the regret, that burns into people, with a smile and its not blunt or clanky (for lack of a better word)
