this person staring through
this person staring through the reflective
you've turned and run off with all
to the other side with you
and i know, i know
you try so damn hard to be so happy
so you say, what do i do now that you are me ?
i'll fade with time, just like in the dream
inherit my shoes, they were too hard to fill anyways
i want it to go well for you, start over and do it right
this time for me
open the eyes, look at this wall and notice the one that
borrows and steals
i do this to myself
stick to the side roads
they help interesting thoughts
you see what you want to see

    General Commentfirst off the video goes hand in hand with the song...in the video the old man is how the emo kid sees himself or is himself in the future...the line "stick to the side roads, they hold interesting thought" thats saying be yourself and stay away from the "mainstream" of things, don't just not do something because your afraid of what people will think...when it says the part about look on the wall at the one that borrows and steals...the mirror has taken his youth...great song...great video

    General Comment*sigh* this new record is absolutely amazing, but i do have to agree their old stuff is awesome. but this cd is, i tihnk their best so far. they have just progressed so it's hard to compare. but i had a convo with this hc kid and we were talking about how "Distance" is prolly their best one, because of how important a cd to the HC scene it is. but i think that is what will happen with this one. it's a different style that hasn't really been evolved yet. i dunno. just my thoughts, either way all ptw stuff is amazingly gorgeous.

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful, i think this is the first time a ptw song can be described in this manner. The new album is impecable, its laden in harder than before metal parts, and more emotional melodic parts, this song alone exemplifies just how much they have evolved.

    General CommentPTW has progressed a lot since "distance only..." indeed. I really like "You Come Before You" and I am fucking pysched to see them at Warped. Farewell

    General CommentI fail to see why people compare this cd to anything they've done so far. They obviously wanted to go in a different direction. Bands get sick of playing the same type of music over and over, that's not a human being that's a record player. These guys are muscians and they can play more than hardcore/screamo if you want consistency go listen to cds. If we never venture to what we haven't done humans would have never survived a week.


    opposite of december and this cd aren't comparable to each other as far as which is better, they're two different styles.
