come to compromise
for all of me that has withered up and faded
like a fallen sunset
come to compromise
and let this music paint our silence
like a fallen susent
and it's each beat pounding in my head
this too familiar sound of failure
this song I can't get out of my head
this too familiar sound repeating every note
making up for words unsaid
this too familiar sound
we've all sang the same hymn of infatuation
we're making up for each bitter tongue
letting the world know in different ways
taking our feelings we can't express
and showcasing them as if as if they really mattered
we're letting the world know
these are the only strings connected to my heart
that no one can play with

    General Commentcall me old fashioned, but chiodos were kind of better with their old stuff like this. not saying that their new stuff sucks, but yeah. . just my personal opinion.
    i like the little beat they go into at the 1:10 mark.
    this song gives me the feel for enjoying wherever you are. dunno why.
    ps, these lyrics are really jumbled. lol. the last lines are a verse before the repeated chorus .. and i'm pretty sure it goes :
    "these strings are the only ones connected to my heart,
    that no one can play with.
    these are the only strings connected to my heart,
    that no one can play with.
    that no one can play with!"
    ..then go back to "we're making up for each bitter tongue....."
    but no big deal .. props to putting this up.
