Waiting for the sun to set my wings ablaze.
The show must go on.
The funeral needs a star.
Tonight I have become the gossip and the choir.
The useless and the used.
The one who reaches for her arms.
I am denial.
You are the one who fell from grace for them.
Is there a reason why?
The funeral needs a star.
As you walk away for the last time could you hear my heart consumed behind you
As you turn your back from the dying did you feel the sun burn out inside you
You set my wings ablaze.
You will run from familiar arms into their embrace.
I hope they love you like I did when you needed me and I came to you that night.

    General Commentthis song is not amazing, you can not even understand what the guy is saying until the final 53 seconds of the song, seriously how can you call this music? the final 53 seconds are very good actually, now maybe if they didn't just yell at random stuff for the first 2:21 of the song then this would be a good song, but it isn't.

    General Commentyeah because I mean, it's really awesome how you can't understand a word the guy says. yeah that rules. and I mean I guess it's awesome if you like horrendous lyrics and terrible music to back it up. also I know quite a bit more about music than you do, I love how you consider screaming meaningful and talented, take off your chain pants and eye make up and get a life. and some good taste in music. enough said

    General CommentThis song is pretty cool, not one of there best though. At first I thought it was about a girl that he loved who died. But I guess a break-up makes more sense.

    Hey, Hoochy_Man. What's up? You are so smart man. The ability to understand someone's lyrics in a song is so very important. I hope you pray for it every day, while you listen to enigma. Your intellect simply amazes me. You know what Hooch, I don't give one fuck about your taste in music. You seem to like putting others down, so i give you some in return. You make generalizations on people, and for what, self gratification? Maybe you've skipped out on some much needed psychiatric help. You pathetic little man. Oh, your knowledge of music must be soo overwhelming. I don't even know why I dare respond. We are all desperately waiting to hear your musical prowess. While you were just a wee little baby, the doctor must have gotten a little careless and cut your balls off. bitch.
