please baby not another stare
i've been in that trance before
those burning eyes half glazed with tints of fury and resentment
fighting not to look back
and still tasting the dust from the last time we did
we sift through the crowds without a care
only to leave the burnt pattern of a waking nightmare
loneliness finds us beneath dim lit lights
where pen and paper spell out confusion
failing to escape those nights of solitude
the echos of today's misfortunes linger
its then that you realize
you're the one who wants to cry something
because you feel nothing

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite hopesfall song.. I can't believe there aren't more than 1 comment! It just has that great sound that I love, especially the guitar in the intro.. great melody.

    General CommentYeah, it's one of my favourite tracks too (It's hard to pick one, they're ALL so good...), I especially like the last line;

    "Because you feel nothing", he says it with such emotion.

    General Commentfatmike: if you're talking about the first soft part... he just says "please... PLEASE".. .lol... tho i do see where you get the "failing to escape" thing.. that'd actually be a really cool line...

    this is probably my favorite on the record next to The Bending...

    that very last line "because you feel NOTHING"... that part gives me the chills... it's so emotional indeed

    General Commentyeah i gotta agree on the 'because you feel....NOTHING." its amazing and so very true about so many people...but another good line - "lonliness finds us, beneath dim lit lights." for me, this is the epitome of my life. in everything ive ever done that has ever made me the slightest bit happy, the lonliness and the depression always finds its way back to me...but im fucked up, dont mind me ;)

    General CommentIf I remember correctly it is the girl that broke the lyricist's heart. But that was a rumour.

    General CommentYou've got to love the part when all hell breaks loose after the soft interlude.

    And the guitar over the screams of "you're the one the wants to feel something."

    Mind blowing.
