"Insomniatic Meat" as written by Marc Edwin Allen, Nathan Barcalow, Derek Doherty, Alejandro M. Linares and Randy Strohmeyer....
Oh my god I think I'm blind.
I've found one color won't suffice,
You promised, sleep tonight.

But I know this,
By the curse of the dead,
Is to protect all your children.
One more, one more, one more than I,
To fight off the bad guy

Now go to sleep
Nightmares make these,
Scars of stomaches blooding you.
Quicksands, sinking eyes,
Makes for heavy sigh.

It's painless, it's painless,
To float above the earth, like this

Tie me to a chair,
Subconsciously, surrendering.
Now that I'm awake, it's hard for me to make believe.

This is the worst thing that you have ever done.
This is the worst thing that you have ever done.
This is the worst thing that you have ever done.
This is the worst thing that you have ever done.

This is the worst thing that you have ever done.
This is the worst thing that you have ever done.
This is the worst thing that you have ever done.
This is the worst thing that you have ever done.

Blood between the sheets, insomniatic me. (oh)
(Catch the liar)
Fright of nightmares, leading upstairs, do I follow?
(Catch me lying)

Tie me to a chair,
Subconsciously, surrendering.
Now that I'm awake, it's hard for me to make believe

This is the worst thing that you've ever done

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs from the new album!
    I think this song is about insomnia and that "disconnected" feeling you get with no sleep.

    Maybe also, "subconsciously Surrendering Now that I'm awake", he's not sure any more if he's awake or not..

    *shrug* awesome song!

    General CommentThe beginning where Nate sings "Oh my God I think I'm Blind" completely sets the tempo for the song, and this song does the same thing for the rest of the album. The themes of violence and a feeling that Nate is in a dream are throughout the cd.

    Say Hello to Sunshine is extremely different from What it is to Burn, and from everything else coming out today. Finch's sound on WiitB was like a bridge between Deftones metal GlassJaw type hardcore, and pure pop punk. On SHtS, Finch sounds like an early 90's heavy metal band trying to be a 2005 hardcore band. I don't mean that to sound negative, this album is incredibly creative and experimental. With SHtS, Finch has taken a step towards becoming one of the great rock bands of this generation, but may be losing many of its punk fans in the process.

    General Comment'Maturing'?.. Where are the catchy riffs, the quasi romantic lyrics? The RYTHM?. They're all gone. This whole CD is pointless, trying to sound hardcore bleh! As if they were never pop-punk. What? Oh yea about the song meaning, it's about a guy who murders in his sleep so he tries to stay awake..Oh how original!

    General CommentUnrelased you clearly don't know anything about hardcore.

    This album sounds nothing like anything hardocore. Finch are much more talented then then that! This album is very different from "WITB" But for the better i think. They songs have plenty of Rythem, You would have to be part stupid not to get into the feel of these songs.

    And i thought the meaning to the lyrics were original!

    Love to see you do better.

    General CommentUnreleased, here's the problem. "What It Is To Burn" was an awesomely good album in some ways eg. tons of catchy tunes, soaring choruses etc. But if Finch had released another, more similar album, then it would have been a very cynical, money-driven thing to do. By slating the band as acting "as if they were never pop-punk", you're suggesting that changing is a bad thing. When they do it like this, it ain't! If you like Finch, just listen to the new album more. It gets better every time. If you want to listen to the old album, it ain't goin' anywhere! Oh, and Insomniatic is right. "The Casket Of Roderic Usher" sucks a bit on CD. It's great live, though. I saw Finch on the first night of their UK tour supported by Million Dead. They closed with "What It Is To Burn". Now that is a show!

    General CommentThis album is awesome, but What It Is To Burn was better. I don't think a whole lot of thought goes into Finch lyrics these days though.
