"Fault Line" as written by and Jesse/vodinh Hasek....
I felt you cut free
Turning cold shoulders to me
Growing blame lines
Communicating lies
Nothing more to trust
Fallacies of love
Killing all that holds you

Bring me back to this
What you said useless
Leave me (leave me)
I'll shed my skin these scars will mend

Don't worry about me
The heart is supposed to bleed
Purity is drained
Help each other die
I see it
I see it in your eyes
Killing all that holds you

Bring me back to this
What you said useless
Leave me (leave me)
I'll shed my skin these scars will mend

Eyes twitch and lies itch of nervous
Eyes twitch and lies itch from a nervous ending
Innocence is ugly in the one who is guilty

Bring me back to this
What you said useless
Leave me (leave me)
I'll shed my skin these scars will mend

    General Commentgreat bass line at the beginning, beautiful lyrics. dynamic changes.
    it seems to me like he crossed the line (with someone he loved) and they can say nothing to make him feel like he hasnt done something wrong. he's confessing and saying that it's better that (that) person go because he'll learn from what he's done in the end.

    My OpinionWell I just left a toxic relationship. It reached heights of pleasure and torment I've never experienced. And my belief is that he and I played exactly opposing roles. I always saw him leaving me. He always felt smothered. Eventually, the internet gave me insight to the problem (check the link below if curious).

    We were addicted to each other. But he is outwardly afraid of attachment and inwardly afraid of abandonment. On the opposing side (my side), I am afraid of abandonment and inwardly afraid of attachment. So as I tried to get closer to him he pulled away. He was always suspicious of me for what I couldn't fathom. But it was simply due to my attempts at connecting in a sincere emotional way. We are both guilty of emotional manipulation. We both thought the other one was maliciously not meeting our needs.

    When I would finally turn to leave, he would turn back towards me. This last time, after absolutely countless break ups, I entered a crisis unit for depression and suicidal thinking/ attempts. He met me there. But the person that was left of me was emotionless. EMPTY and BLANK. It was weird and creepy. He was so nice and concerned for my well-being at that point. Showered me with compliments and gifts as never before. Actually apologetic for his behavior. I just had nothing left in me to trust he wouldn't leave me AGAIN empty, alone, and broken. So I became suspicious of his attempts at connecting emotionally with me. How could this time be different than before? He must be faking. He just feels sorry for me.

    Who is the guilty party? Who is the leaver in the relationship? He was emotionally unavailable throughout the whole thing. As soon as I left emotionally he arrived.

    I can picture both of us saying the lyrics, EXCEPT the part about looking in the eyes. I only can picture him looking in mine at the crisis unit and subconsciously knowing I checked out emotionally. I didn't even know it yet.

    General Commenti think this song is about this one person thinking love is just a game and not believing in it at all and just ruining this relationship,yet they don't think they're doing anything wrong but really they're hurting the other person.

    General CommentTHis is one of my favorite songs on the album. Its about being in a relationship that ended very ugly. Trust was lost and now you're being killed with the hate you feel coming from the other person. You're so heart broken over this.

    General Commentall these songs remind me of my relationship with my bestfriend. we used to have this thing for each other but not anymore. i told him that im falling for him again but he doesnt feel for me like that anymore. this song reminds me so much of how i feel for him. "I felt you cut free turning cold shoulders to me" rejection..."Don't worry about me the heart is supposed to bleed
    Purity is drained
    Help each other die
    I see it, I see it in your eyes
    Killing all that holds you" this reminds me of how im falling for him but he doesnt see me the same. killing all that holds you.... hes changing. hes making me miserable, and there cant possible be anyone who could cherish him like me.

    General CommentA bunch of these songs seem to all be about a relationship. They need more themes in their songs
