"The Willing Well II: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness" as written by and Claudio/todd Sanchez....
What is this that I feel?
And what is this that I fear?
In these arms they hold down
Amongst the words that made
In these fields.
From pressure to pain
I wish to stay away
In the measure I test with
Your love for me
To shout against these walls
With hope that one will break free

So hear me

What is this shit
You keep selling me, boy?
I'm not gonna hold your hand here, anymore
And Newo?
You'll burn in hell
While they're digging you out

So picture this face
And burn it to flay
To shelter it at home
At the fire place
And all the memory will fade
With the flick of the flame
So I have a secret,
That no one should know,
That I shouldn't tell
But over the, but over the world
This one won't feel
This one just won't leave me well

What is this shit?
You keep (seven?) me, boy.

I'm not gonna hold your hand here,
And Newo?
You'll burn in hell
While they're digging you out.

I'm not gonna hold your hand here,
And Newo?
You'll burn in hell.

In the pleasure of your bed
Do you feel that your stay here is good,
Oh boy, I'm eating my way back home

In the pleasure of your bed
Do you feel that your stay here is good,
Oh boy, I'm eating my way back home

Ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh

As father told son
In the make of his final escape
Should all good boys die
God at their side
At the grace of his gates

No the robot holds none
With the mind and a heart to comply
Then I will disguise
And grieve of those dead when im given the time

Run little rabbit
Go hide in the blades of that grass
Run rabbit run

Should capture be
I'll earn this volt
Breathe up through loss
I'll fight your cure

You know I kill

With the last breath of air
As the earth comes trembling down
Would you give her this last night
To tear up your life?

With the last breath of air
As the earth comes trembling down
Would you give her this last night
The love of your life?

No one runs faster than you can
No one runs faster than you
No one runs faster than you, weeeee (whispering)

    General Commentthis song is indeed quite amazing. the background effects and such during the "what is this shit you keep selling me boy" part and whatnot is great.

    anywho...my take? well, since the whole willing well series (and the whole cd for that matter) is sung from the prospective of the writer, i think he's trying to tell claudio to quit bitching about newo (what is this shit you keep sending me boy? i'm not going to hold your hand anymore) while at the same time saying he's going to tell the story of newo's disception (and newo? you'll burn in hell while they're digging you out). and towards the end the writer is laying it out for claudio, letting him know that he has to decide if he'll still be dedicated to newo even after all she's done, and even when the war with the mage is going to burn the world (with the last breath of air/as the earth comes trembling down/would you give her this last night/the love of your life?).

    non story line interpretation? claudio(as in the singer, not the character)'s friends all telling him that bitching about nikki was getting old...and he needs to decide whether or not he wants to stay dedicated to her. while they sympathize, saying nikki (newo for the uninitiated) is a bitch who should burn in hell, claudio needs to stop spreading stories of her whoredom...they're growing old.

    Lyric CorrectionIm almost certain these are the correct lyrics:

    What is this that i feel?
    And what is this that i fear?
    in these arms they hold out amongst
    the worms that mate in these fields

    oh, from pressure to pain
    i wish to stay awake
    In the measure I test with your love for me
    To shout against these walls
    With hope that one will break free
    So hear me...

    What is this that you keep telling me, boy?

    I'm not gonna hold your hand here when you walk
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out

    I'm not gonna hold your hand here when you walk
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out

    So picture this face and burn it to flake
    To shelter it at home at the fireplace
    And all but memory will fade
    With the flick of the flame
    So I have a secret that no one should know
    That i shouldn't tell
    But of all the... but of all the worlds
    This one won't feel...
    This one just won't leave me well

    What is this shit you keep telling me, boy?

    I'm not gonna hold your hand here when you walk
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out

    I'm not gonna hold your hand here when you walk
    You'll burn in hell while they're digging you out
    You'll burn in hell

    In the press of your back
    Do you feel the shore swell?
    Oh boy, I'm eating my way back home

    In the press of your back
    Do you feel the shore swell?
    Oh boy, I'm eating my way back home

    As father told son in the make of his final escape
    Should all good boys die with God at their side,
    At the grace of his gates?
    No, the Robot holds none with the mind
    And a heart to comply
    Then I will disguise and grieve of those dead
    When I'm given the time

    Run little rabbit...
    Go hide in the blades of that grass...
    Run rabbit run

    Should capture be our earnest fault?
    Breathe up through lust, I'll find your cure
    In there I'll kill, kill, kill... in there I'll kill, kill, kill

    With your last breath of air
    As the Earth comes trembling down
    Would you give her this last night
    And give up your life

    With your last breath of air
    As the Earth comes trembling down
    Would you give her this last night
    the love of your life

    No one runs faster than you can
    No one runs faster than you
    No one runs faster than you eat
    To the end with you... to the end with you

    General Commentdamn... im goin to hav to xplain this agian... this whole cd... is claudio the writer and the character fighting.... claudio sanchez was going to quit the band cause his "girl friend" wanted him to... so he could be with her more or what ever... anyway... claudio sanchez was forever having to fight with himself (or the claudio character as known in the cd) about staying in the band for a little longer to finish the story... sanchez doesnt want to... but the character wont giv it up... the character (in a few songs) is asking him what his fate was... he wants to know what happens... but... the writer doesnt want to finish it... so i still hav no idea if this cd is for sanchez to show us how much crap he went through to continue the story... or is givin us hints that he ISNT continuing... so this is where im in a baot woth no baddles... im just sittin here waiting to hear some good news...

    General Commentactually kyleandcambria is right, kinda anyway,
    from what claudio has said and what ppl on co&ca forums have said basically sanchez's girlfriend nikki owen told him to choose her or the band and therefore the story. So he chose the band. This album is about the relationship of the writer with the characters in the story, and how Sanchez's real life relationships have affected the character's relationships

    General CommentClaudio Sanchez: “This is more from the Writer’s perspective: He’s become isolated from the world, and he finds a way out, which is to destroy the story.”

    As both worlds are bleeding into each other, the album takes a turn to show the perspective from both sides. The events take place in a certain sequence, but the listener/reader is also thrown back and forth between plot and disillusion to heighten the sense of disorientation that Writer feels. The Willing Well songs are all involved in the section of the graphic novel where Writer is on his way into the story, and Claudio is on his way to House Atlantic to fight with Ryan for the first time since “A Favor House Atlantic”. Writer and Character are both preparing for an upheaval; a final battle, or so they feel.
