Fall to your knees, fall to your weakness
It has become your standard
Consuming every word
Meaningless words from meaningless sentences
Where is the message? Where is the progress?
I will separate the past from the past
I cannot repeat the same mistakes we used to
Shed another tear as I stab you in the chest
With pieces of your broken heart
Fuck your broken heart
Why can't you let this die?
Let this die
Similarities complete comparison (compare yourself to me)
To create the stagnant birth of this standstill, step back
Screaming your hymns of heartache
At the top of your lungs and in vain
This bandwagon is on it's last leg
How long will you beat this dead horse?
I have no compassion as a witness to your demise
Yes, she does bleed
Color me misery
Color me beautiful
Shake the hand of repetition slow
Serenade me with a love song (bullshit)
Tragedy of emotion barely breathing
Yes, she does bleed
We don't dance anymore
I don't love anymore

    General CommentThis song... This album... Pure fucking works of art. This is def. the best song on the album, with a close second going to Incisions. I feel the same way that Pete and the rest of the band feels in this song... That our scene is slowly fading and dieing because of little wanna-be emo bitches ruining our shows. They intentionally come to start shit because they think the band "sucks". Plus, the bands that defined this genre of music (PTW, Give Up The Ghost [American Nightmare]) are putting out shittier and shittier music. On the other hand, this album is just as good, if not better, than She Looks Good in Red.

    General CommentI agree with this song. The meaning is in parenthesis. Just before the song begins the track prior to this one (all that glitter is) ends with a quote from something I am not sure of, it says, "Your killing rock and Raping Roll."
    Fuck your broken heart! - ha, Now that's rock and roll!

    General Commentokay, i think this song, the album is THE most influencial hardcore album of all time. it WAS dying, but remnev have brought it kicking and screaming back to life. as far as bands like poison the well, i don't agree with PoisonTheWells, some of them.... yes... but as a band that helped start the scene, poison the well are still great in my opinion. if you listen to the new album, 90% of the songs are not love songs. at any rate, these guys are amazing. i believe in giving credit where credit is due. and bands like poison the well, who's music may be leaving the hardcore staple of sound, still get a big nod. " cry themselves to death " fucking awesome! lol that's it, i'm out.
