sleep never comes quick enough to protect us
there is no shelter in the present from the ghosts of the past
like well driven nails
memories dig their claws in our backs
revealing our black hearts
unable to forgive ourselves
our parched mouths pray for rain
and only the clouds bear witness as we wither away

    General Commentyeah it is really good, but all of the hopeafall songs are amazing, its hard to pick lol...but this song stick out, because of the last line. "only the cloud bear witness as we wither away.." because lets face it, sometimes, no one really gives a flying fucka bout you. no one even notices anything is wrong until youre gone. only the clouds see as you fall apart at the seams.

    General Commentreally good song. i think its saying that you go to bed..but you just can't go to sleep fast enough and you start thinking about the past and bad memories and some stupid shit you've done and just wanna die...or something like that i dunno

    General CommentThis song is musically and lyrically superb. The instrumental 1/3 of the way through the song just rules, especially with the breakdowns following mixed with some melodic riffs. 10 out of 10.
