Lay it down one last time
Let this be the last time
I have seen the sunrise just one too many times
With open arms and minds
Stay with me till I find,
what it is we search cause I know we want more.

On earth as it is in a dime store
For all the amateurs that you've knelt before
Breaks my mind in two
They surrounds us
One more night without you
They surrounds us
Take my will with you
They surround us
Break my mind into.......

One, breathe in to be free
Two more times and you'll see
Three, it will numb all the pain
How hard is it to be sane?

Won our will to be seen
Raise our hands and we'll scream
Speak your mind and you'll see
What it is like to free

One breathe in to be free
Two more times and you'll see
Three it will numb all the pain
How hard is it to be sane?

    General Commentthis is the only song on the new album that has both ben perri and fran mark covering vocals in it.
    ..not to sure if i like new style of just one vocalist, although its still a fucking awsome album

    General CommentNot true. The Funny Thing About Getting Pistol Whipped Is... also features both vocalists. I tend to prefer Fran's vox 'cuz he can scream pretty good, and has a distinctive voice otherwise. The scream thing is just all to common these days, the clean vox help define the uniqueness of their sound.

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite off this album. I'm looking forward to the new record, but I have to say I'm going to miss the Ben/Fran combination. It's so damn good, even on songs where it's more subtle like Placentapede. Oh well.

    I think this song is about someone being hurt by somebody they care about so many times, they can't take it anymore, despite their feelings, and they have to leave them. The first verse says that basically he's been foolishly optimistic too many times ("I have seen the sunrise just one too many times, with open arms and mind"), and the chorus is saying, look at all the mistakes you've made and things you've done to hurt me, I tried to make it work and I'm going to miss you but it's tearing me apart ("All the amateurs you've knelt before, breaks my mind in two. They surround us. One more night without you").

    Kind of fits into the title; you may love or want to be with someone, but if they continually hurt you or take you for granted, where do you draw the line?

    Just my take.

    General CommentI think this might have been the only song on the album that Ben wrote.
    It's kind of a "I know I've been fucking up, guys. But please don't kick me out of the band."
