today ((these days))
I'm shattered ((I'm better))
I feel as if I don't matter much ((I don't want to feel))
is this the end of me?
and I've got ((I have))
this letter ((forever))
unread, I'm glad I never sent it ((this is all of me))
you know I'd rather write than speak

it's hard explaining when you're wrong
it's hard forgiving when you're strong

as I burn out and rot, as I burn out and rot
this fire's burning down these walls
this world's not meant for you and...

I'm still breathing
my lung's bleeding
I'm leaving now
do we always have to end like this?
I'm still breathing
air through collapsed lungs
through collapsed lungs

today ((today))
I'm stronger ((I'm bitter))
knowing that I don't belong to her ((I just want to feel))
took you to give me strength
and I use ((I have))
four letters ((forever))
to form words that help me to forget her ((for you to find me))
you know I only curse when I'm weak

as I burn out and rot, as I burn out and rot
this fire's burning down these walls
this world's not meant for you and...

I'm still breathing
my lung's bleeding
I'm leaving now
do we always have to end like this?
I'm still breathing
air through collapsed lungs
through collapsed lungs

as time runs out, as time runs out
as I burn out and rot, as I burn out and rot
as I burn out and rot, as I burn out and rot
as I burn out and rot, as I burn out

in the background -
((I'm still breathing
my lung's bleeding
I'm leaving now
Do we always have to end like this?))

and I'm still breathing without you
and I'm still bleeding without you

I'm still breathing
air through collapsed lungs
through collapsed lungs
cause I'm still breathing
and I'm still breathing without you
cause I'm still breathing
and I'm still yours

    General Commentthis is the song that i first heard that got me into this band.. i wouldn't say its their best but its def. good... and oh, he isn't talking about a specific word thats four letters.. he's saying that her uses different 4 letter words like F**K or S**T to forget her.. then he says he only curses when he's weak.. so yeah, i thought it was pretty obvious. but i'm almost positive thats what they're trying to say.

    General Commentthis is the only song i like by them, it's awesome i like the two parts. i heard another song by them, theres one part where his voice just sounds horrible and off key.

    General CommentSomeone tell them to tour the south west. One ticket sold right here. I usualy don't like it when bands get to big because I like the smaller venues, but damn I want them to be popular enough to afford to tour. So buy their stuff every one ....do it for me please!
