Of late, it's harder just to go outside
To leave this deadspace with hatred, so alive
Writhing with sickness, thrown into banality, I decay
Killed by the weakness, but forced to return, turn it off

I watch the stars as they fall from the sky
I held a fallen star and it wept for me, dying
I feel the fallen stars encircle me now, as they cry

Out there so quickly grows malignant tribes
Posthuman extinction excels unrecognized
Feeling surrounded, so bored with mortality, I decay
All of this hatred is fuking real, turn it on... yeah

I watch the stars as they fall from the sky
I held a fallen star and it wept for me, dying
I feel the fallen stars encircle me now, as they cry

It won't be all right despite what they say
Just watch the stars tonight as they, as they disappear, disintegrate
And I disintegrate 'cause this hate is fuking real
And I hope to shade the world as stars go out and I disintegrate

    General CommentI agree with System of afi Down. Does cursing excite you, glenzero? Does a singer need to curse to write a good song as far as you're concerned? By the way, read the lyrics from Lower It..."So walk right in and destroy the fucking place". Do your homework instead of pretending you know what you're talking about.

    General Commentthis is to glenzero
    "this is the weakest song on the new cd, he is screaming like a trendy kid in a thursday tribute band. Plus is the first song wear Havok curses since "Open you Eyes" afi is a great band, the new cd is good but this one song is not what one can expect from a great band like afi "

    You're a dumass, the whole point of screaming was to get the message across and to simply put more emotion into the song, this isnt a weak song and think everybody here will backme up. It's also very refreshing to hear them do alittle somehting new, it keeps the cd exciting.Its nice to hear something new, and about the Thursday remark they are a talented band so Sut the fuck up.

    General CommentYes, waaaaaaayyy back at the beginning a certain glenzero said that this is the first time the 'curse'..its not and what makes a word wrong anyway? Who cares if they say F U C K I N ...would it be more appropriate to u to say 'freakin'...those words have..basically the same meaning..so, why does it matter?? It's just a word..:-\

    Song MeaningI believe it's about all the hate in our world and society. How horrible and inhumane people are to everyone and everything. So much hate that it's making the world fall. Stars falling. Despite everyone saying it will be alright, the stars are falling on them.

    I realized the meaning of the song after I listened to it when I found out my girlfriend had been cheating on me just as I expected. I wasn't sad or anything. Just angry, all I felt was hate. It's something you have to go through life to realize. That most all people, are horrible, selfish, and inhuman.

    General CommentFor the screaming at the end, I believe it is this:

    It won't be alright
    Despite what they say
    Just watch the sky
    As stars collide

    I recently heard the song live and that's what it sounded like to me. c:


    This song is fucking amazing, it is. My favourite of all their songs. I also, being a person who adores electronic music, LOVE the little techno bit in the second verse. And the end of it with the distant screaming... amazing.

    As for the meaning, I get a strong vibe of death from this song. From the title, to the lyrics, and the sound of the song.

    General Commentgod i love this song. it kind of reminds me of "smile". i like to think of it as a song about hating what humanity has become. "Of late, it's harder just to go outside
    To leave this deadspace with hatred, so alive."
    i feel like that way too often...

    "And i disentigrate because this hate is fucking real."
    best line ever :] and i love the way he sings it.

    General CommentTo understand the song Death of Seasons. Firstly you must understand the writers are visionaries...people that are highly intuitive and in tune with there feelings. but depressed and resent the world. They dream of the end of life and feel the end coming but rather than throwing bricks and causing panic and civil unrest they express them selves artistically as the poets that they are.
