"You Eclipsed By Me" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Brandon Saller and Ektor Varkatzas....
I began my ascent at minue zero
You made so sure of that
You tried to keep me down here
Your complacency has been your downfall
Nobody made you king of the world
And I'm here to dethrone you
So kiss the ring motherfucker
It's my time, my time to shine
Grasping for the straws as they fall
Maybe you can make a splint for your broken ego
For your broken ego

So I say thank you for the scars
And the guilt and the pain
Every tear I've never cried
Has sealed your fucking fate
What did you take me for, a fool?
Or were you just too blind to see
That every effort made has failed
And there is no destroying me?

Hate can be a positive emotion
When it forces you to better yourself
You built me, constructed my desire
Perfected my hatred
Now I'm driven to be ten times better than you think you are
Ten times better than you think you are
Piece by piece I've built my walls
And burned the bridges down
That lead back to people like you
So full of malice, so full of scorn
You tried your best to crush my spirit
You tried to steal my soul
You pushed my back against the wall
And I broke it down
I will not be broken
Though I am the one who bleeds

I will not be broken
I am the one

    General Comment*I killed my assailant by his arrow*
    You look so sure of it you,
    Try to keep me down and,
    Your complexity has brought your downfall,
    Nobody made you, King of the wall
    ___________?
    So kiss the *brick* motherfucker,
    It's my time, my time to shine...
    _______________? (The next 3ish lines are really hard to understand)
    *I'm not broken and you,*

    And I say thankyou for the scars,
    And the guilt and the pain,
    Every tear I never cried has sutured fuckin' fate!
    Did you take me for a fool?
    Or were you just too blind to see?
    That every effort made has failed,
    And there is no destoryin' me...

    *Could have been your positive emotion,*
    When it forces you to better yourself,
    *You built me*
    Cause I get my desire,
    From building my *interest,*
    And now, I'm driven to pain,
    Cause I'm better than you think you are...

    Peice by peice I build my walls,
    And burn my bridges down,
    That lead back to people like you,
    So full of malice,
    So full of scars,
    You'll drag your *mask* accross my spirit,
    Try to steal my soul,
    You'll push my back against the wall,
    And I broke, in two...

    I will, not be broken, though I am the one who bleeds,
    I will, not be broken, I am... The one...

    And I say thankyou for the scars,
    And the guilt and the pain,
    Every tear I never cried has sutured fuckin' fate!
    Did you take me for a fool?
    Or were you just too blind to see?
    That every effort made has failed,
    And there is no destoryin' me...

    General Comment*sighs* No one use to add the whole song, always the chorus and most everything would be cut off. I'm starting my own trend. You guys are not me. Am I elitist? Yeah, I rock when it fucking comes to lyrics. Fuck any who think otherwise. Good job though on the two entries for lyrics. Really close guys. Sorry for venting, but yeah you get the idea.

    My Notes:
    (What it could be saying)
    (*What I think it's saying*)

    *hardcore voice*
    I killed my assailant by his arrow.
    You look so sure of it; you
    (Tried) or (*Try*) to (*keep*) or (kick) me down and,
    Your complacency has brought your downfall.
    Nobody made you king of the world,
    And now I'm here to tell us all.
    So kiss the brick, motherfucker!
    It's my time, my time to shine!
    Grasping for the stressing vibe,
    And then you wake up blind.
    For your broken ego.
    *all*
    For your broken ego!
    */all*
    */hardcore voice*

    *chorus*
    When/And I say thank you for the scars,
    With the guilt and the pain,
    Every tear I never cried,
    I sealed your fucking fate.
    Did you take me for a fool?
    Or were you just too blind to see?
    That every effort made has failed.
    And there is no destroying me.
    (And there is no destroying me!!! ...to echoing scream)
    */chorus*

    *hardcore voice*
    Pick your pain - your positive emotion.
    Reinforces you, to better yourself.
    You built me, constructed by his order.
    Perfected by hatred.
    Now I'm driven to pay.
    Just I'm better than you think you are.
    *all*
    Just I'm better than you think you are!
    */all*
    Piece by piece I build my walls,
    And burn my bridges down.(ohhh ohhh)
    That lead back to people like you.
    So full of malice,
    So full of scars, (Ohhh Ohhh)
    You tried your best to crush my spirit.
    Tried to steal my soul. (ohhh ohhh)
    You pushed my back against the wall,
    And I broke it down. (Ohhh Ohhh)
    */hardcore voice*

    *Non-hardcore voice*
    I will not be broken,
    though I am the one that bleeds.
    I will not be broken,
    I am the one.
    */Non-hardcore voice*

    *hardcore voice*
    I will not be broken,
    though I am the one that bleeds.
    I will not be broken,
    though I am the one.
    I will not be broken,
    though I am the one that bleeds.
    I will not be broken,
    I am the one!!
    */hardcore voice*

    *chorus*
    When/And I say thank you for the scars,
    With the guilt and the pain,
    Every tear I never cried,
    I sealed your fucking fate.
    Did you take me for a fool?
    Or were you just too blind to see?
    That every effort made has failed.
    And there is no destroying me.
    (And, There is no destroying me.)
    There is no destroying me!
    (There is no destroying me!)
    No, there is no destroying me!
    (No, There is no destroying me!!)
    */chorus*

    General CommentTheLoveBelow, thats prolly the closest anyone is going to get, I only have one thing i think should be change

    you said: You built me, constructed by his order.
    i say: You built me, constructed by disorder.

    makes more sense

    General CommentIn the chorus, I'm pretty sure he does not say

    "Every tear I never cried,
    I sealed your fucking fate"

    I'm almost 100% sure he's saying "Every tear I've ever cried just seems to fucking fade." Could be either though, although I have seen my version on the Atreyu msgboard. Listen for it.

    General CommentOh, also..

    "Now I'm driven to pay.
    Just I'm better than you think you are. "

    Is wrong too, It's "Now I'm driven to be, ten times better than you think you are."

    General CommentContagion, listen very closely, it IS Every tear I never cried, I sealed your fucking fate. You can definitely hear the T sound in fate if you listen.
    I do have to agere with you on the "Now I'm driven to be, ten times better than you think you are." you're exactly rigth about that. It definitely sounds more accurate than "now I'm driven to pay, just i'm better than you think you are."

    General CommentOfficial lyrics from cd booklet:

    I began my ascent at minus zero
    You made so sure of that
    You tried to keep me down here
    Your complacency has been your downfall
    Nobody made you king of the world
    And I'm here to dethrone you
    So kiss the ring, motherfucker
    It's my time, my time to shine
    Grasping for straws as they fall
    Maybe you can make a splint for your broken ego
    For your broken ego

    So I say thank you for the scars
    And the guilt and the pain
    Every tear I've never cried has sealed your fucking fate
    What did you take me for, a fool?
    Or were you just too blind to see
    That every effort made has failed
    And there is no destroying me?

    Hate can be a positive emotion
    When it forces you to better yourself
    You built me
    Constructed my desire
    Perfected my hatred
    Now I'm driven to be
    Ten times better than you think you are
    Piece by piece I've built my walls
    And burned bridges down
    That lead back to people like you
    So full of malice
    So full of scorn
    You tried your best to crush my spirit
    You tried to steal my soul
    You pushed my back against the wall
    And I broke it down

    I will not be broken
    Though I am the one who bleeds
    I will not be broken, I am the one

    General CommentAnd I say thank you for the scars

    i think he is singing a relationship that went sour and he cut himself and it left scars and he is telling whoever thank you for the scars you left me Color Tonite Redon October 16, 2004   Link

    General Commentwhat he means in this song is that he's been through the excruciatiing heartbreak and now that she see's him all fine and dandy she's now angry and its her turn to feel shitty. and now he's gettign payback for which he's done to her "Every tear I've never cried has sealed your fucking fate'
    meaning that each day that he grew stronger and didnt cry he could make her feel just as worse.

    this song is basically all aboout REVENGE.
