Holy eyes bring back one
Never if you only trust your separation
I believe and then
I'll try to give in
Is one fall already bad?
Seems far, but it's true

Whoever told you that
We will find a way to be this way
It's true, whoever told you that
Its fine to walk right outta control
It's true, whoever told you that
Thats fine I hope the best for you
It's true, whoever told you that
We try the best to be the best but look what you've done

We are respiratory
We take violence in stride
We are respiratory
We are never to fall

We are the only story, intriguing myth
We told it twice before and I
I believe and then
I'll try to give in
We owe the attention for
Seems far, but it's true

Whoever told you that
We will find a way to be this way
It's true, whoever told you that
Its fine to walk right outta control
It's true, whoever told you that
Thats fine I hope the best for you
It's true, whoever told you that
We try the best to be the best but look what you've done

We are respiratory
We take violence in stride
We are respiratory
We are never to fall

    General CommentClassic saosin, (even though i think its a new singer lol) gotta love the way he screams "thats fine i wish the best for you" im guessing its about a love that screwed him over like most songs lol and good job on the lyrics seem to be right on...

    General Commentwhoah whoah whoah....that's not all right.

    First off, Anthony got over his drug problem during his first year with Saosin. Second, Beau is good friends with Anthony, not really that much with Cove. And cove is just some fan who was dying to sing for them so finally they let him because he wanted to so bad. It turns out he's pretty good.

    General CommentThis is a great song, and I've been looking for the lyrics for a while. As far as I've heard, this was the last song Anthony recorded with Saosin before he left to start Circa Survive and The Sound Of Animals Fighting and such. But, I think Cove does a good job for Saosin now. And as for Anthony, he makes any band good, and I like everyone he's been in so far that I've heard of.

    General CommentThis song isn't technically Saosin, it's actually only Anthony and Chris...I feel dumb for never looking that up, but it's on the Saosin site under additional discography or something like that. Still, awesome song...

    Ha, I have button clicking spasms. Same comment posted twice, wow.

    General CommentThere's actually a new version of this song that Cove and the guys have been playing live. It sounds very similiar to the old version that ANT and Chris did, with some minor changes, both lyrically and musically.

    My InterpretationI think the whole thing is about Anthony's drug addiction.
    "Holy eyes bring back one
    Never if you only trust your separation
    I believe and then
    I'll try to give in
    Is one fall already bad?
    Seems far, but it's true"
    From this, I think he meant that God gave him a second chance (to fight the addiction). Then it talks about how he believed that he could do it but he had one time where he gave in.
    Then in the verse after, I think he emant they talked about his addiction in two other songs.

    "Whoever told you that
    We will find a way to be this way
    It's true, whoever told you that
    Its fine to walk right outta control
    It's true, whoever told you that
    Thats fine I hope the best for you
    It's true, whoever told you that
    We try the best to be the best but look what you've done"
    This is the part that confuses me. The "we". Maybe whoever wrote it is in the band and feels that the band tried so hard to get far and be famous and he brought them all down. Then they are wishing him good luck..
    Idk. I could be completely wrong. It's just my interpretation. i used to think it was about lvoe, but I don't think so anymore.
