Writhing in love you swear
what you feel is real
Bending your every illusion
You fake it all too well
Numbing the mind rest inside
that hate left unspoken
Tasting the truth it's shy
afraid to be broken

And it's humbling
This pain you feel inside
And it's stuttering
These words that I must try

Seeing the unheard you know
that it cannot heal
Breaking the bonds you swear
that you swear to feel
Can you awake from sleep downed
you allow me to steal
Gagging on selfish hide
when you crawl to kneel

And it's humbling
This pain you feel inside
And it's stuttering
These words that I must try

And I'm choking on love
I made you feel

    General Commentthis is just an awsome song.... his voice is haunting. The fact that people think this is APC is shocking... it does not do this band justice.. Can this awsome band get anywhere when people think they are APC and dont recognise how great Living syndication really are?????

    General Commentlol! i thought it was APC too, but for two reasons: 1. someone had it on their psp and it said "Choke- A Perfect Circle", and like Sea Of Faces90 said, after hearing how maynard could change his voice around so much, i thought it was...anyways, it's a kick-ass soonngg...

    General CommentI still believe that this band and a perfect circle have had been doing three songs together...EITHER THAT or they have the same voice

    General CommentAlternative you asshole... once you dis on apc saying that this band is the shit and then you go off and say his voice does sound like maynards.

    Does alternative stand for alternative ego...

    apc is better than this.

    General CommentI am a fan of APC too but honestly, I was under the impression this was one of their tunes too. No disrespect intended. I dig this sound from Living Syndication though and they are a new favorite as well!
