lost in a haunting thought
spinning me around once more
i wake just to feel the way
as the daylight comes around i turn
with my eyes on the back door


your face is light and cocaine white
one message beating through
smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep everything you intended to say
don't go back on your words
you always said you'd tell me first


verse after endless verse
i can't escape the echoed words
i long to find a cure for the feeling i find in these chords
i smile as it burns


your face is light and cocaine white
one message beating through


i've been erased from the picture
excuse, oh no anything goes
excuses, you know it doesn't work
excuse, oh no anything goes
excuses don't work
excuse me this will calls out desperate
excuse me this will calls out desperate

smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep everything you intended to say
don't go back on your words
you always said you'd tell me first
smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep

    Song MeaningThis song I think talks about how one person was left behind and is left wondering what will happen and if their coming back. Their mourning and remembering memories. He finds it hard to let go because of the fact that the other person had said they wouldnt let go so easily but broke their promise. He wants the memory to br gone from him becuase it hurts him everytime he thinks about it.

    General Commentthe author is in an extrem amount of pain. he likes the pain though, like the pleasure a cutter gets from cutting himself. it seems like he is being rejected or shut out by a friend. the cause is possibly a drug.the friend being someone younger or female who he felt he had to protect. that friend is a hypocrite. he is desperate for peace. THis song is amazing because when i listen to it, it makes me feel like i am high, on ecstacy or something. im emersed in the sounds and the feelings the sounds evoke. thats it, thats all i got. lol

    General Commenti like the line "your face is light and cocaine white." i don't know why, the way he sings it i think.

    General CommentFor me this song strikes me as some sort of relationship probably a friendship that got Broken up to do someone doing cocaine. That that person just up and left, and Anthony feels as if that person should have told them before they left, and that there is no excuse for that person actions.

    well, if any of you have ever done cocaine, this is how the 'hangover' plus the bad trip feels like.
    you can't get any sleep even though you're tired as fuck..
    your eyes hurt really bad, and your thoughts are darker than usual :B

    "your face is light and cocaine white

    i believe that anthony talks about his friend or girl, who might've exchanged him for cocaine

    that's how i see it
    see ya
