"The Sound" as written by and Vincenzo/rossi Consiglio....
If I only had an ocean to compliment the sky
I'd pull it down
And paint it for you
And I'd never question why
'Cause red would mean you loved me
And blue would mean you cared
But black my heart when left alone
To cold and killing stares.
This is the burning of a dream.

The sound now turns to silence
But ill keep spinning around
Naked in the rain of my own tears
As they fall into the
Bucket of your apologies
While closing everyone else's eyes
Because your own are shut
Not to see the volume rise again.

Feels like I'm waiting in the last hiding place on earth
Hangman's noose tight round my neck
But I'm saved and
For 100,000 memories
Been washed ashore
Be swept again by forever
And sailed away from you.

The sound now turns to silence
But I'll keep spinning around
Naked in the rain of my own tears
As they fall into the
Bucket of your apologies
While closing everyone else's eyes
Because your own are shut
Not to see the volume rise again.

Only you could row my boat ashore
If only you could set my fears at rest
But until lack of sympathies regress
I'm still waiting, I'm still waiting
For your call.

The sound now turns to silence
But I'll keep spinning around
Naked in the rain of my own tears
As they fall into the
Bucket of your apologies
While closing everyone else's eyes
Because your own are shut
Not to see the volume rise again.

    General CommentI'm so glad the lyrics for this song is up...I've been listening to it nonstop ever since Tooth & Nail released it on their mp3.com page...it's an AMAZING song. 'Pride War' is awesome, also, but I really love this one. I love the line 'the sound now turns to silence...'; it's like hoping for something to stay, but despite your best intentions it just fades. It's good to see that FSF is still going strong after the loss of Chris Carrabba, maybe even stronger....Frankly, I think Jason Gleason better suits them as a lead singer, both on this track and when I saw them live in August. I can't wait 'til the new album is released on my birthday.

    General Commentthis song is so amazing, and yes Jason fits this band better than Chris. Chris is better off where he is anyways. He wanted fame, so he got it. Hopefully FSF wont bring that upon themselves by going on the radio/MTV, because everyone knows they are 100x better than everything played on the radio.

    General Commenti can't wait for the new album either. when i first heard about this song and pride war being out, i didn't hesitate to listen to them. i have to say, i'm very satisfied with the sound each song has. i absolutely love the moon is down. it's just plain amazing, but yet it's also nice to hear new stuff from a band, and i agree with what you guys are saying. jason will definitely make further seems forever even better than before. they are just plain awesome.

    General Commentthe actual lyrics to the song go as follows...they're official according to jason...so here you go

    If I only had an ocean to compliment the sky
    I’d pull it down and paint it for you
    and I’d never question why
    cause red would mean you loved me
    and blue would mean you cared
    but black my heart when left alone to cold and killing stairs
    This is the burning of a dream

    The sound now turns to silence
    but i'll keep spinning around
    naked in the rain of my own tears
    as they fall into the bucket of your apologies
    while closing everyone else’s eyes
    because your own are shut
    not to see the volume rise again

    Feels like I’m waiting in the last hiding place on earth
    haman’s noose tight round my neck
    but I’m saved and for 100,000 memories been washed ashore
    be swept again by forever
    and sailed away from you
    now that the rain has ended
    so the sun can shine through me

    The sound now turns to silence
    but i'll keep spinning around
    naked in the rain of my own tears
    as they fall into the bucket of your apologies
    while closing everyone else’s eyes
    because your own are shut
    not to see the volume rise again

    Only you could row my boat ashore
    only you could set my fears at rest
    but until lack of sympathies regress
    I’m still waiting for your call
    The sound now turns to silence

    General CommentThe new album is awesome! One of the best things to come out of emo. Further Seems Forever is becoming one of the best...lets just hope they don't wind up on Krock or TRL like Chris...I think the Sounds about how things were great in a relationship but they've now "turned to silence" and he knows things will never back to how they were.
