Legacy will never burn
Hard to breathe, I'll never learn
And it moves me towards where I want to leave
In the silence we all speak
Laying down and suffering
And I move nothing and embrace what I don't need
So I stand, all alone
With this trance, on my own
And I just sustain moving on in vain
cause this glow, you and I
Have come to know, is a lie
And I must move on

(Chorus)
I can see past these fine lines that you stepped through
I can see through these glass eyes that led me on
I'm in this room, You're in that and you play hearts like instruments

Listen deep, you're hell the sound
Whispering, it's all around
Echoes grasping in, echoes lasting sin
Out of this, please open up
Move from this, it's taken us
And I need to change, and I need to say
So I stand, all alone
With this trance, on my own
And I just sustain, moving on in vain
Cause this glow, you and I
Have come to know, is a lie
And I must move on

Tell me the things that I need to keep my heart
From breaking clean
Leave me with numbness and watch me lock
Myself in a disbelief
Where does this movement come from, I'm holding on so desperately
This love is so intricate it leaves me taking

    General CommentII Corinthians 11:13-14

    “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, discussing themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

    That's the verse that Falling Up gives for this song.

    In my opinion:

    This song is about a person or the devil who has decieved someone else. The person who was decieved is having a hard time "Hard to breathe, I'll never learn" The person who decieved them was probably close to them "'cause the glow you and I have come to know is a lie, and I must move on" This line also implies it is a past lover (that's what happened to me). They realize they have been decieved "I can see past the fine lines you stepped through. I can see through these glass eyes that led me on." They have moved away from the deciever "I'm in this room, you're in that." The line "You play hearts like instruments" has a strong impact on me, because the deciever in my life does play hearts very well. Oh yeah, "hell the sound" should be "hear the sound". Pain can reach a point where you don't know how you mange to put one foot in front of the other, and keep breathing in and out. "Tell me the things I need to keep my heart from breaking clean" Simply asking God to provide enough information to keep from giving up. "Leave me with numbness and watch me lock myself in disbelief" Sometimes the only way you can get through something horrible, is to be numb and not to believe what is happening right in front of your eyes. "Where does this movement come from, I'm holding on so despertly" Simply being amazed that inspite of the pain, you're still livng"

    This is long, but this song means soooooo much to me and I have listened to it so many times right before school, tears streaming down my face as I'm trying to muster enough strength to go on just one more day and face the person who has decieved me.

    General CommentYeah, I think the writer is acknowledging that he keeps sinning........."And I move nothing and embrace what I don't need."
    He's saying he needs to stop when he says, "And I must move on."
