"Lazarus (In The Wilderness)" as written by James Patrick Ambler and Nicholas John Evans....
Revealing your desire
Upon these ashes
In your fear
It will swallow the river that divides

There's no life in here at all
To seek this self decay
There's no life in here at all
To take these dreams away

This burning ever
Will conquer all you see
And this burning ever
Will bury your heart

There's no life in here at all
To seek this self decay
There's no life in here at all
To take these dreams away

So what are we all built upon
Soon fragile in decay
What are we all built upon
To take these dreams away

Why need a
Why need a new faith
When the old is still ok
Will you still
Will you still love this
As the interest in it fades away
As it fades away
As the interest in it fades away
It fades away
The interest in it fades away

    General CommentWhen I first saw the title I thought "As In Adam Lazzara? Could FFAF have an opinion on the John/Jesse/Adam hate/love triangle?!" but i think i just may be wrong...by a long shot

    General CommentFFAF has matured A LOT. Lyrically and musically. IMO, they used to be exclusively emo. I liked "Casually Dressed & Deep In Conversation" but "Hours" appeals to me so much more. They are one of the few "emo" bands that I've recognized as real music and this is coming from a metalhead. ;)

    But this a truly awesome song. One of the few real gems on the "Masters of Horror" compilation.

    General CommentCorrect me if im wrong but I believe this song is actually written about a man in the bible who's name is lazarus. I can't quite remember which chapter the stories in but basically its about a man that died and before he died his sister begged Jesus to heal him but Jesus never came. So the man died. But then Jesus performed a miracle and brought him back to life then everyone came from around the world to see the miracle he performed. I think I can see roughly how this song came from that. Just a thought.
