Dancing crazed and forgotten;
six halls
one heart.
One million ways to hold onto silhouttes. Ignored by tattered lips, broken calls.
It's like you've run out on yourself.
Split between death,
good fortune and a staggering breath.
A broken key for a faulty lock.
A fevered pray for a dying flock.
Like consonants without vowels.
Jagged tongue wag, incessant stones passed- other hours merely forgotten.
It is with a dream and a heart that we proceed.
Not a thought to leave not another lifetime we need.
And though we may look behind;
this visions' seductive glance,
we will pick up our pride and loosen our impenetrable stance.

    "Fucked up at the very end."
    "No, it's good, dude."

    General CommentThis one is about moving on in life. To paraphrase the last few lines: All you need is a dream and a heart, you don't need to run away and find another life. It's ok to look into the past in order to learn some lessons, but you gotta let go of your pride and just keep moving on.

    General Commenti agree w/ ^. also i think its about our inevitable futility in life, our inability to be complete, its almost as if he states all that and says ignore it, fuck it if you have a dream follow it and move on anyway

    General CommentI was about to post that, ExcessiveClaptrap. That part is so great, it caps off the emotion of the song and the whole EP. There is nothing wrong with this EP, at all.

    My interpretation is that words can break hearts and that sometimes there is nothing you can do to take back the words you've said. And in the end, sometimes what you can't spend a lifetime of dwelling on what happened and just move on.
