We're on a search to find the feeling
For which we all die
It appeared, the answer to the problem
And a reason to smile

Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
They came together and the other fell apart
It appeared, the answer to the problem
I have no reason to smile

The connection, eyes meeting
Lips touching screaming 'sweet sianara'
And the other gracious sounds of Claudio
Swear, spit and teas unchanged alike
Mistakes made and forgiveness
But the eyes still met, and the lover still loved
And the liar still lied
Then came the downfall
To one's heaven stuck
In a world where nothing is beautiful
The nail was on the coffin
It hadn't been buried
Yet nothing but an open casket for him to knell and weep

It's come together its time
To change what the script reads
There's no such thing as happy endings this masterpiece is finally ending slowly microphone psychiatry
Good-bye for good

It's come together its time
To change what the script reads
There's no such thing as happy endings this masterpiece is finally ending slowly microphone psychiatry

Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
They came together and the other fell apart
It appeared, the answer to the problem
I have no reason to smile

Cravings fulfilled
Hate on oneself
Good-bye for good

    General CommentI am so confused.
    I actually went out and bought the All's Well That Ends Well.
    This song was not on it.
    But I couldn't find The Heartless Control Everything EP.
    So I downloaded it. =[ Which makes me sad cause Chiodos is an amazing band.

    But The Heartless Control Everything is on Search and Rescue.
    And All's Well That Ends Well is on Equal Vision.
    And The Heartless Control Everything was released under the name "The Chiodos Bros."
    So I am confused.
    Can someone help me figure this out??
    It would be greatly appreciated.

    General CommentIt's very common for a band to duplicate the songs from album to album.

    The Chiodos Bros. & Chiodos, are the same band, obviously. It's extreamly, extreamly rare to find copies of "The Heartless Control Everything" Most have to download it. That's why so many of the songs repeat from album to album.

    But Chiodos is an amazing band, one of my all-time favorites. ^^

    General Commentif you reverse the opening part to the song, where it sounds really odd, hes saying

    "how does it make you feel to know youve taken someones smile?"

    General Commentuhm, i think this song could be about two people who were in love, then one found someone better and left the other lover hanging. i could be way off and i just randomly came up with this 5 seconds after reading the lyrics so i'm probably wrong.

    General Commentartistic anomaly:
    i think that is actually a reference to the william shakespeare play, 'much ado about nothing' in which there is a character named claudio. the play actually has a plot that has to do with infidelity of sorts, so it would make sense.

    General Commentalright
    this is what i get from this song
    is that there was a guy who goes out
    with a girl who broke up with another guy
    and then the girl breaks the second guys heart
    and gets back with her ex

    first starts off with
    "How does it make you feel to know you've taken someones smile?"
    which obviously means that someone broke someone elses heart

    "We're on a search to find the feeling
    For which we all die
    It appeared, the answer to the problem
    And a reason to smile"
    the feeling - being loved and the answer to the problem was for the girl to find another to love, which gave the second guy a reason to smile.

    "Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
    They came together and the other fell apart
    It appeared, the answer to the problem
    I have no reason to smile"
    The two lost hearts being the girl and her ex, the one in the middle being the second guy,
    the girl got back with her ex
    thus giving him no reason to smile.

    "The connection, eyes meeting
    Lips touching"
    perhaps explaining the girl and her ex getting back together

    "Mistakes made and forgiveness"
    being the mistake the girl and her ex had and them forgiving each other

    "But the eyes still met, and the lover still loved
    And the liar still lied"
    i believe the eyes of the girl and her ex, and she still loved him and then lied to the second guy about being over her ex.

    "Then came the downfall
    To one's heaven stuck
    In a world where nothing is beautiful"
    This is how the second guy felt when she got back with her ex.

    "The nail was on the coffin
    It hadn't been buried
    Yet nothing but an open casket for him to kneel and weep"
    the nail on the coffin meaning the relationship of the girl and her ex, but it wasnt buried yet, and when they got back together he saw that there wasnt anything in it, meaning like, the girl still loved her ex and he shouldve seen it coming and actually checked into the
    "coffin"

    "A lover and liar the pain finally stopping for him to try and take his own life And the blood of a body that was once so pure"
    he was so depressed by this that he tried to kill himself, and perhaps he hurt himself, something he had never done to his pure body.


    "It's come together its time
    To change what the script reads
    There's no such thing as happy endings this masterpiece is finally ending slowly microphone psychiatry
    Good-bye for good"
    Basically saying that he realized that life isnt happy and that "there's no such thing as happy ending"

    "Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
    They came together and the other fell apart
    It appeared the answer to the problem
    I have no reason to smile"
    yet again restating the girl and her ex getting back together and his heart fell apart, it answered the girl and her ex's promblem, but left him with no reason to be smiling.

    "Cravings fulfilled
    Hate on oneself
    Good-bye for good"
    the cravings of the girl for her ex
    he starts to hate her and whats happened
    and then he says good bye.


    now i also think that at
    "The connection, eyes meeting
    Lips touching screaming 'sweet sianara'
    And the other gracious sounds of Claudio
    Sweat, spit and tears unchanged alike
    Mistakes made and forgiveness
    But the eyes still met, and the lover still loved
    And the liar still lied"
    that perhaps he saw the girl and her ex kiss or something like that(lips touching)
    and they fought(sweat, spit, and tears)
    but in the end she said it was a mistake and that she wouldnt do it again(making her a liar in the end)
    and he forgave her
    yet again, she cheated on him (making her a liar, and breaking his heart)
    ___________________________________________________
    either way, this song is amazing
    i just love listening to it
    its just like
    whoah...
    Chiodos rock
    i was dissapointed because ToC came to my area and i checked like 2 weeks before and tickets were sold out,
    then like a couple days before it they changed venues and tons more tickets were being sold, but i didnt learn about that till the day after and i was like
    @$#%$%@#$%
    friend told me that she had bought her ticket 3 hours prior to the event
    and i was sad =[

    General Commentthe situation to seems that someone has cheated the other person because it says :
    Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
    They came together and the other fell apart
    It appeared, the answer to the problem
    I have no reason to smile
    meaning that 2 people were in love but then someone cheated and they got stuck with 3 hearts but the orginal lover gets the bad end falls apart and cant smile since thier heart is now filled with anger

    this song relates to me right now and is amazing
