"Smashed Into Pieces" as written by Shane Told and Neil Boshart....
Never again
I'll slit my throat with the knife I pulled out of my spine
Maybe when you find out that I'm dead
You'll realize what you did to me

And if my lungs still let me breathe
Would you be there for me?
If I can make myself believe
I'll give you back what you took away

No, I won't let it go
Douse myself in gasoline
So don't save me when you come into the fire
I'd rather die than have to see your smile

And if my lungs still let me breathe
Would you be there for me?
If I can make myself believe
I'll give you back what you took away

You made me swear
You made me swear
I, I can't sleep
Realize all these things that you took from me
Smash my heart (You made me swear)
Into dust (You made me swear)
Suffocate my mind (You made me swear)
Tear at me from inside (You made me swear)

Smash apart what you created
How can I ever stop you from crushing my soul?
It was, it was yours, yours to begin with

And if my lungs still let me breathe
Would you be there for me?
If I can make myself believe
I'll give you back what you took away

    General CommentThey need to record this song again. Shane's screams are so much better than they used to be. This song would kick so much ass if it got recorded again.

    General Commentwtf early november...trust me silverstein isnt talking about religious matters in there songs. it wouldnt make any sense. "smash apart what you created
    how can i ever stop you from crushing my soul? " yea..that be a perfect thing to say when you pray to god. your ass would probably get struck by lightning

    General Commenti gave this song to my ex after she told me she had a miscarriage and ran off to her ex just to find out about 8 months later that she was having the kid and saying she didn't know the father, so she could but it up for adoption and then had her friend call and tell me so i would know but not be able to stop her or get the kid...

    General Commentonly one post? admittedly its harder to comment on than coheed, but just look at the robot! this song's all for self-destruction due to heartbreak. this song swings a few ways too, one minute it's all like 'if i can make myself believe, i'll give you back what you took away' and hopeful before raging into 'no, i wont let it go douse myself in gasoline so don't save me when you come into the fire i'd rather die than have to see your smile'. classic.

    General Commentreading the lyrics you can tell what its about (betrayal, heartbreak, death resulting etc) but i love the choice of words and all that. it makes it that much more powerful and strong. like instead of saying i'm going to kill myself cuz you stabbed me in the back, they say i'll slit my throat
    with the knife i pulled out of my spine
    brilliant. and earlynov...this song is obviously NOT about religion...where the hell did you get that from??

    General Commenti agree with pumpkinqueen
    i think the lyrics and the song itself are really beautiful... i really love it

    I also think it's about a relationship instead of something religious, I agree with the arguments of the others.

    General CommentMy absolute favorite by Silverstein.

    I learned about these guys through the PureVolume site, and hope to see them together and playing for a very long time. Their shit gives me goosebumps...
