Last night your taste was beautiful
But my tongue doesn?t know the truth
Cause when its drown in poison chemicals
I see the better side of you
Our promise was that we would save ourselves
Before our minds lost all control
But then our clothes
Hit the floor
Now today you called
And told me that it only hurts more

The phones been off the hook for three hours now
My heart beasts fast as the pulse of the tone
Blocking conversation
I?m hiding from your lies
Lies that make you take back what?s been said
I?m so angry it?s hard to even talk anymore

With words as my weapons I would say to you
Now its over
No shields can prevent these sharp syllables
I tell my self
You?ll never let go
(You will never let this go)
Still I m the one who is blamed for this

Lies depicted a remainder of trust
Something deeper than a story
Will you hold my eyelids open?
As I paste your blood on my pupils
Then teach me to see with my ears
So I?ll find out what true beauty really is

Why can?t I take back all the time that
I wasted on you
And use on friends that wont bring me down
Because every time it seems the same way
And I know that their there for me
And they hate to see I?m ruined

So give me one good reason why you?re still in love
I see you standing all alone
And if that one good reason is not enough
I want to be let go
Just give me one good reason why you?re still in love

    deff my chiodos fav aside from penguins in alaska
    im going to see them nxt wk
    i hope they play this song

    its basically he thot things w/ him and this girl were seemed to be going good
    "Last night your taste was beautiful
    But my tongue doesn?t know the truth

    he and this girl had sex and he regrets it because he wouldnt ordinarily do that w/ her but when his tongue is drowned in her poison chemicals (her mouth, saliva, duh) he sees the better side of her and does it
    and then the next day she calls him and tells him something that only makes it hurt more prbly she doesnt want to be with him

    "The phones been off the hook for three hours now
    My heart beasts fast as the pulse of the tone
    Blocking conversation
    I?m hiding from your lies
    Lies that make you take back what?s been said
    I?m so angry it?s hard to even talk anymore"
    the phones been off the hook, hes taken himself away from contact from anyone to think it thru
    his heart is beating fast cuz hes pissed/hurt/sad/etc
    blocking conversations, again not talking to anyone to think it thru and so he doesnt have to listen to her cuz shes caused him nothing but pain thru her lies apparently and she keeps goin back on them repeatedly
    im so angry...: do you really need me to explain that?

    "With words as my weapons I would say to you
    Now its over
    No shields can prevent these sharp syllables
    I tell my self
    You?ll never let go
    (You will never let this go)
    Still I m the one who is blamed for this"
    with words as my weapons...hes gonna tell her its over with the intention to hurt her (weapons) so that way she may stop it and therefore stop hurting him
    no shields...no matter wat she says hes not gonna back down
    i tell myself...he doesnt think shes gonna let it go anyway but hes gonna try anyway
    still i am...not sure, maybe its society will see its his fault and blame him for it?

    "Lies depicted a remainder of trust
    Something deeper than a story
    Will you hold my eyelids open?
    As I paste your blood on my pupils
    Then teach me to see with my ears
    So I?ll find out what true beauty really is"

    lies depicted...i have no idea i always thot it was love something not lies
    will you hold my eylids open...beauty really is: im not sure, but maybe hes saying that shes not attractive like a pretty face but he knows its the beauty underneath so like if you want me to see how beautifull you really are [beautifull underneath] then teach me to see you without sight b/c then ill know. something like that im not sure but very poetic

    "Why can?t I take back all the time that
    I wasted on you
    And use on friends that wont bring me down
    Because every time it seems the same way
    And I know that their there for me
    And they hate to see I?m ruined"
    pretty self-explanatory he wants to take back the time he spent loving and eventually being hurt by her and spend it elsewise like w/ friends b/c friends wouldnt hurt him and every time he tries to get together w/ her it ends in heartbreak and his freinds wouldnt do that cuz unlike her mayhap they would hate to see him ruined or heartbroken

    "So give me one good reason why you?re still in love
    I see you standing all alone
    And if that one good reason is not enough
    I want to be let go
    Just give me one good reason why you?re still in love "
    hes saying stop playing games w/ me do you love me or not and if you really do then why give me just ond good reason cuz youre 'standing all alone' like hes tired of it all and doesnt want her back
    and if her reason isnt good enuff or he doesnt believe her he wants to be let go

    very beautiful song

    General Commentat the end, after the phone beeping cuts out, he's screaming "Just give me one good reason why you?re still in love."

    This band used to be so amazing. Why did they have to go and change so much?

    Ugh. It depresses me when I go to their shows now because they're nowhere near as good as they used to be. Hell, their live show is so... bland now. Instead of the old energy they used to have (and the crowd as well), they're just standing about... and all of the scene kids in the front row just bob their heads.

    It pisses me off.
