Watching someone stop breathing.
Feel the arms and palms releasing.
The color, the smell of the skin,
All of this with your finger prints.
(And there isn't a thing that we could do)

Drive, drive, drive, drive,
I don't want to get caught.
We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
There is enough to prove we're not.
They will believe anything.
I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again.
There isn't one thing we forgot.
You'll see, we'll get away with this.

My jeans, your shoes, we'll throw away everything we've used.
But there's still your worried mouth
To match your worried eyes.
The only two things left to find.

Drive, drive, drive, drive,
I don't want to get caught.
We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
There is enough to prove we're not.
They will believe anything.
I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again.
There isn't one thing we forgot.
You'll see, we'll get away with this.

There's no compromise (Murderer)
So remember this (With your teenage eyes)
Your hands are lies (Resist)
It's too late for if's (Confession)

We'll go home and close the door,
(Oh the weight is so much, my heart is hollow)
then pull the sheets up to our heads and sleep.
(With this foolish thing I've done)

And there isn't a thing that they can do.

Drive drive drive drive,
I don't want to get caught.
We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
And there is enough to prove we're not.
They will believe anything.
I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again.
There isn't one thing we forgot.
You'll see, we'll get away with this.

    General CommentK this is just a shot in the dark and I havent fully developed this idea yet but here it is---------
    This song repressents the temptations of sin and the feeling of being able to rationalize sin....The lines---"I don't want to get caught.
    We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
    And there is enough to prove we're not.
    They will believe anything."---and---"You'll see, we'll get away with this." represents the feeling that you will be able pretend that what you are about to do (some kind of sin...or sexual sin, im not quite sure) will be ok , it wont effect your life (causing guilt) and that you will be abe to disguise it and keep it hidden. ----In one line it says --"I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again."--- this line is showing the feeling that you can just escape into some kind of sin and live in without having to turn back, then in another line it says---"So remember this.
    Your hands are lies.
    It's too late for riffs.
    We'll go home and close the door"--- this last line talks about going home even thought the song was saying that they would never go home. Your hands are lies is saying that your living lies and you know it but instead you hide under your covers. After the singer realizes that he has sinned and that he cant do anything about it---"then pull the sheets up to our heads and sleep.
    And there isn't a thing that they can do."---
    hey repeats the chorus (repeating the sin)------------
    This song is showing that we as humans are stuck in a continous rut of sin that we ourselves cannot get out of and that we need help from someone else or we will continue to live our lives like this.

    General CommentI am pretty sure this is about murder as well. I will also have to agree that the new album is amazing, and I have been listening to it on repeat ever since I got it. :)

    General Commentohh forgot to talk about the title---"Left With Alibis And Lying Eyes"--- after you sin you have excuses and everything to rationalize your sin but underneath your still lying.

    General Commentkcf3106 I think you are right. Very clever of you. Rationalizing sin never works. The guilt is always there no matter how far we try to run from it and tell ourselves we're ok. I love this song. I love the whole album. EMERY IS AWESOME!!!
