welcome back.
reality stings you with more pressure than my furious hands,
and the skin we wore is stained and torn.
all our promises seem so absurd.
i've lost my faith in the human race,
our selfishness is our most endearing trait.
and i begged you not to play this game.
but you always do, and i have no choice.

is there someone here?
we keep the lights turned off so we can't see them.
is there someone here?
we keep our eyes shut tight so we won't see them.
open your eyes,
turn on the lights, let's destroy someone.

on an on, our bodies bruise until there's nothing left
(there's nothing left we go and and on and bruise our bodies).
when the fire washes over us we'll say
"with our open eyes we'll forgive all our pain"
when the water washes over us we'll say
"we've all been lost"

    General CommentI like this song on many levels. One being the melodic instrumentals the lead provides. Second the lyrics are top notch, for example:
    "i've lost my faith in the human race,
    our selfishness is our most endearing trait. "
    Can't lose with line like that.
    Another level i can appreciate this song is to being to relate to the lyrics in the end during the climax. Also the build is killer.

    check out this song if you haven't already, one of their best.
