Undenied
Death before life

You're in my place again
Echoes deprive us enough
You're in my wailing
Decide what it means to work in fire
Decide what it means to work in fire

Shadows casting bodies
Who knows which way things will go?
All shifting images
Upside down to be upright
Upside down, you'll make them cry

Death before life

Another place again
You and my loneliness speak now
I realize
I don't have much further to go

The afterglow

Life running backwards, nailed up and freezing

Put the past before you

Down is my placement
No place out there I have to be
Lost is where I hide (and)
And I've no reason to be found

To resound
From no sound to resound

    General Commenti love you for putting this song up its got to be the best death song ive ever heard in my life.
    to me its pretty good with the meaning.
    if you listen to sly and the family stones song life its kind of a vice versa thing of that no other way to describe it with so much excitement hopefully when calmed down i can write something better

    General Commentok the lyrics i used are a bit diffrent to these but hey new meanings to everyone
    yeah i got a bit befor that prt about all tonight ending now and i think its about the end of a reach in life but you will return

    death before life prt its a bit like the end of the loop comment where the spirit takes over your life when death becomes you or vice versa to their world
    youre in my place again
    echos before us see now
    the spirits taken over, new words through warp of worlds and you believe youre w/ the other half

    the nxt 2 line are diffrent for me ive got sound would of means rectified then sound....rectify
    john is putting out sound that to him will last forever but in the shortness of his life willl be drawn out of the picture

    it them moves onto felling alone but always have spirits around you. you feel like you cant go wrong and that the prime time is dreams

    it then goes onto say that within the dreams you realize that death is rather close but it brings you to a new better life
    it then goes into a metapjorical thing whereit moves back to youwhen your through the new life warp hole

    the last pieces move on to say that its better than where you were before and you know you live w/ the spirits and that you'll live on forever if you're w/ the spirits

    General Commentokay so i'm kind of confused. i bought a used CD off the internet. came with two booklets, one's small one with liner notes, and the other is a book of lyrics in both english and japanese. i assumed these were correct lyrics, as it looks official, and i just assumed i had a booklet from a japanese release or something. but the lyrics are completely different, here they are exactly as printed:

    Undenied undenied (repeat)

    Dead people lie
    All people lie
    Dead people lie
    Dead people lie

    You're in my place again
    Echoes become a sin now
    You're in my way, man
    Sound would mean some wrecking up
    Sound would mean some wrecking up

    Shadows casting...
    Who knows were traveling down there
    ...images
    Of some...

    Dead people lie (repeat)

    I'm not a president
    You'll hear my lonely mouth speak now
    I don't have my purpose to go

    The afterglow
    The afterglow
    The afterglow
    The afterglow
    The afterglow

    Lie on your back when you're nailed up in freedom
    Lie on your back when you're nailed up in freedom
    Hooked up before you
    Hooked up before you

    Down is my place, man
    No place I feel I have to be
    Lost is where I am
    And I've no reason to be found
    To be down
    From myself to be down
    From myself to be down (repeat)
    From myself a reason

    so what's up with this? what are the real lyrics?
