Selfishness has brought me to this place
Unreal desires have slit the throat of happiness
holding on to the memories
That will never be again
Breaking the sacred vow
Taken a thousand times
Lies through the mouth
Of the one who believes
Wears the mask
To cover all of the emptiness inside
I bleed alone
My eyes fail me
I sink
Can't swim
I'm drowning
Can't stay on top
Can't move
I'm falling further away from you
I'm only suffering
Because the focus is gone
I bleed alone
My eyes fail me
I sink
Can't swim
I'm drowning
Can't stay on top
Can't move
I'm falling further away from you
I'm only suffering
Because the focus is gone
Selfishness has brought me to this place
Unreal desires slit the throat of happiness
Holding on to the memories
That will never be again

    General CommentI know exactly how this feels. Knowing you are a selfish person and you want to do whats right but you just feel like you are sinking deeper and deeper into unhappines and pain... and you know its just b/c o your selfishness and your mistakes and you just want what you had.

    General Commentthis song is accually about a person... most likely jimmy, the singer, who becomes selfish and falls away from Christ and is trying to ask Christ to help him back to normal and a life for God

    General CommentLove this song, my favourite one on the album.


    And does anyone know what Jimmy screams between "I'm falling farther away from you" and "I'm only suffering because my focus is gone"? Theres definately another line there, but every lyric site leaves it out =/

    General CommentI think it says "Can't breathe, can't fight, can't live"
    I'm just not sure about the last part, I don't know if its live or not.
    But this song is about giving into your selfishness and finding yourself further and further away from God, but not being able to help yourself
