To lose my words in this smoke filled room,
If there's a way out, I'm gonna find out.
As it burns my black eyes red.

Repress this.
My only regret: this memory.
So we can convince them that this is all we are.
Watch the martyrs when they face the ghosts.
Shake hands as the waste surrounds you.

Killing it will only make it stronger.
Killing it will only help it box you in.
Killing it will only make you lose your way.

Shot down the last witness.
Committed to finish, this is the beginning I can't miss.
The fucking looks those people gave us.
No fucking bullets can erase this.

    General CommentI think this song is actually about trying to forget past memories that just kill you on the inside and you can't find a way to shake them.

    General CommentTotally about trying to cope with fucked up memories and the suffering you've been through. Repressing the memories and killing yourself over the past will only prove you're the weaker one, that you're a slave to that which tries to bury you.

    It's amazing how many AWS songs relate to the concept of someone (or something) burying you under its weight. It makes you wonder how much the guys have all suffered... and how amazing they are for having dealt with it.

    This is coming from someone who has had to wade through a lot of shit. It's hard, but it's all about keeping it together. Otherwise, you're just proving to the world you're no more good than those who drag you down.
