Woven captive in my words
Keep still, keep quiet
You are not the truth
I feel you like a fucking dagger
There has never been a worse time

It's just like me to burn alive
I would never let you know
But I've run pens dry for you
Words into pages
Pages into hours
So hold me still in my contempt
Alone in my own burden

Keep still, keep quiet
You are not my truth
There has never been a worse time

It's just like me to burn alive
I would never let you know
You are not truth
You are solitude

Every page of every wasted hour will be set to flame
Because I always knew you would lie
Every page, every wasted hour, set to flame
Because you lied
This time you lied to me

    General Commentdied*? yeah "in the early morning hours of june 13th, 2002 while traveling in interstate 20 in Alabama, Compromise was struck from behind by another vehicle. Two of the members of the band. Jordan Wodehouse and Daniel Langlois, were lost in the crash. They will never be forgotten." - For you (an album dedicated to jordan and daniel) misery signals albums were also dedicated to them so thats why the lyrics may sound like someone had died..

    General Commentthis one doesn't even sound like someone died. i haven't heard it yet, but reading thru the lyrics it doesn't say anything about anyone dying. unless "died*" means that "lied" at the end should be replaced.
