a simple defect from decay.
unraveled words are left to fray
and to avoid.
if you could swallow your pride
you would choke on every word
that you hide behind.
so face yourself
and bury your useless words
that mean nothing to me.
your bitterness will bury you
faster than your words ever could.
you've taken arms against yourself.
this is the end.
i swear to it you fake.

    General CommentI think this song is about "fake" people in society. The people that try to be something they're not to fit in and to be accepted by others, and why they may fool some people, others can see they're posing. Or something like that.

    General Comment"fake" people as in people who make up their own ideas, that apply ethical relativism to every situation. these people would be classified as definetly wanting acceptance, but not finding it they make up their own belief system and attack others for believing otherwise. a good example of this could be politics. i was attacked personally for a view and for voting a certain way, the opponent continually refered to a hope that couldnt hold truth, if she "could swallow all your pride you would choke on every word you hide behind". if she really thought about what she was saying and might have approached more humbly then she wouldnt have choked the next time she saw me after the ellection and saw who was right...
