"End of the Background Noise" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders....
This is the background to your life
Its what you think you see sometimes
Then it’s gone

Its times you wait against the light
You think well, I’m all alone
No one knows

And your heart drops to your throat
It gets so hard to get this right
Just Give Up

This is the voice you sometimes hear
And just sits back and takes it in
For the best

In this world
We work so hard
For ourselves
When I’m Gone I get so nervous for my heart
That it won’t work
Hard enough

So with your foot pressed to the floor
You feel the life through your arms
And you smile
What will it ever take to make this go away?
For ever

Ever wonder where we are
We’re all so scared that we are wrong
Well we are

So we’re so thankful for our lives
We show this all of the time
Do you know?

In this world we work so hard for ourselves
When I’m Gone I get so nervous for my heart
That it won’t work
Hard enough
Hard Enough
Hard Enough
Hard enough

If you wonder where we are
And can you take any more
Cause I can’t
Did you ever want to?
Just die

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you thought you’d get?
Is it all you ever hoped?
Is that all you smiled for?

So now the sound's not coming back
And that’s what great, it never came

    General Commentwhy hasn't anyone commet this phenomonal song? well before i praise this glorious song, let me give a little correction i noticed to backtothebeat00- it's "and your heart JUMPS to your throat"

    ok, so this song is so amazing! the emotion of this song seeps through my speakers an all over my room. if you've read my previous comments, iM not an emo type of person, but yes, i do see the background of my life sometimes. with this song and all it's emotion, i know i never would want to go through with anything as extreme as sucide, because i realize that other people do it, but for what? I know i can make it through because i have the strenght. "End of the Background Noise" makes me realize that others will feel this way and i need to help them. I am now an aspiring sucide relief professional. i want to be able to save someone's life by helping them realize that their life IS worth living. so this song means a lot to me possitively, while it may send a negative message.

    General CommentIs it in a way dealing with a person's conscience?

    That's what I got from the first couple of verses, but then I got kind of thrown off.


    I wish I could think and write like Ace.
    Pure genius.
