Ruth, think about the hope we waste, everyday we erase
Ruthie can't hear me at all
I come home
Another story to own
This one speaks highly of you
In notes of the cruel
And lying is like murder, it's easier each time
There is only one more step towards your prize
Open their eyes, open my eyes
If we could be anything, I'm a dirty monster
Once I remember forget
Lies confess, eyes undress
Your eyes are covered in tarp
We buried your heart
And lying is like murder, it's easier each time
There's only one more step to reprisal
Open their eyes, open your eyes
I've got the sickness, I'm the protégé, I've been blessed,
I am diseased boy, catching now like all the rest
We are revenge, we are progress, we regress
Hyper cynical, hyper cynical, hyper cynical
I dreamt murder, ending my regrets
One thing to depend on is the union of killers and liars
Open your eyes

    General CommentI just saw the film I Am Legend and obviously noticed many differences between the book and the film...As i was listening to this song and thinking back on the book I realized this song is about the relationship between Ruth and Robert Neville in the book.

    The main lyric that made me think this was "In notes of the cruel. And lying is like murder..." When Ruth runs away from Neville in the morning, she leaves a not about the lies she made because she wasn't an actual human. Therefore, her lies translate to Nevilles murder at the hands of the Vampires.

    If I'm right....it just makes me think of how much more badass Joey Cape is.
