stephen: whats the password? whats the password? error; invalid; system failure. when i get my hands on them.. oh just you wait and you'll see...

"give me one reason to trust you" she said, and i replied
"i can not for i have none" and she cried.
"then give me your trust so that mine can return" she said, and i replied
"i can not for i have none" and i would have cried, but my eyes has dried.
"then share with me a starving need to hold on" she said, and i replied
"i can not for i have none"
"what then? where do we place ourselves?"
"on the funeral pyre to burn." and burn.

lindsay: Reinventing moonlight for model lace. Hands touch faces and lips whisper simple phrases. So faithful, so sincere. Across the room stands a kind man who doesn't know my name, the kind man doesn't know my face. I wasn't plugged in today and I couldn't help thinking that/ that meant something very profound.

(stephen&lindsey are members of the band and each paragraph is what they scream/sing individually)

    Lyric CorrectionJomosexual is correct; lots of the lyrics are wrong. I own Believe in Patters. The lyrics to track 8 (as listed in the booklet) are as follows:

    Reinventing moonlight for model lace. Hands touch faces and lips whispers simple phrases. SO faithful and sincere. Walk into the room, a kind man doesn't know my face. Doesn't know my name, the kind man doesn't know my face. I was alone today. I couldn't help thinking that there's nothing for me in this town. I've got to get out of this town. What's the password? Error. Invalid. System Failure.

    When I get my hands on him... oh just you wait and you'll see. (I still remember when you came to this place to live and to learn and to live. I still remember when we sand Hallelujah, can't you spare him some love when he's given so much to you?)

    "Give me one reason to trust you again" she said, and I replied "I cannot for I have none." (Can't you share with him some of your precious time?) "Then trust in me so that mine can hold on" she said, and I replied "I cannot for I have none." (Can't you give him some understanding this time?) "Then share with me a starving need to hold on" she said, and I replied "I cannot for I have none." (Can't you give him a chance, just one more time") "What then? Where do we place ourselves?" she said, and I replied "On the funeral pyre to burn." (Alone I am now, alone I shall stay.) With scriptures written on the walls, this house that used to feel like home is now nothing more than a room full of strangers.

    General CommentI don't really know the whole meaning of this song but it seems llike it's about a failed reltionship in which the man had done something which resulted in the woman leaving him. Now she wants to be with him again but he doesn't think he is worth her time.
