Read this letter in reverse to feel, hear and rehearse the meaning that was hidden behind the words.
So cast the first stone, I'll follow in your wake, but I'm not sure if I can make myself at home.

Consider this/consider me to be the catalyst.
And I'll consider this diary to be an obituary.
My name was written off before I knew the English language.

Dear ambulance- take me places I've never been, and heal the wounds I could never touch.
I missed a second chance...And this romance bleeds and burns more everyday.. I'll pray for twisted roads just to say I've lost my way home. - Sincerely and forever.

And friends will fail, and your heart will break.
Your mind will close and you'll fall asleep with one eye open..
But dear your lungs may rust, and the things you lust will turn to wilted petals of a rose whose thorns have been dulled by the parasite of conformity.
And how I'd love to hold you but even the dullest thorns tease these weakened wrists.

Dear ambulance- take me places I've never been, and heal the wounds I could never touch.
I missed a second chance...And this romance bleeds and burns more everyday.. I'll pray for twisted roads just to say I've lost my way home. - Sincerely and forever.

Rhetoric fails.. And mediocrity is my countervail.
Now that endearments have become so stale,
The frailty of emotion has proven to be the bane of our existence.
.
[acoustic guitar comes in..]

Sincerely and forever these sentiments of love have severed the chains of reality

    General CommentThis is the first song we wrote as a band (although I wrote all the lyrics), and some of the parts we may change and the like. To explain it, the beginning verse is based on rhythym and such, the 'catalyst' part is heavy with screams, the chorus is energetic, the second verse is somewhat identical to the first, and the part after the second chorus is a breakdown. After rhetoric fails... is whispered it gets upbeat and energetic and slightly heavy, then leading down into an acoustic outro of many emotions.

    This song has a load of different meanings.

    In the first verse it is contemplating the past, and the many things you can learn from it. And in a relationship sometimes the first move is the hardest and although it may not seem right in the beginning its brilliant in the end, hence the learning from the past part.

    The screamy verse is pretty much self-explainitory, and in terms of diaries, it means how people can consider others dead in the things they write about, and this was basically inspired by teenage angst online journals.

    The reference to ambulances in the chorus is about a thing or person who can make you feel so much better about things. It relates to me becuase I often pursue a romance that makes no sense, and how I'm delaying the inevitable or a reason to continue something pointless. (twisted roads to say ive lost my way home).

    The third verse is pure honesty. Its basically saying everyone goes through the problems mention in this song. The end of it pertains to me again, because ive fallen for 'conformed' shallow people, and its made me upset in my past, again tieing in with the first verse.

    The breakdown and ending are very self-explaintory and I hope to add a level of connotation with those verses.

    Thats about it for this song, im sure it wasnt too deep, i try to make some parts a little deeper than others, im not great and making things very contemplative. Thanks for reading and or listening to our music. AE loves you.
