"Washing Away me in the Tides" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Disgusted with what I see
So many pieces left of you and me
Glass falls like rain
I'll crucify you for this pain

Tonight I leave this town
In love I'd burn it all down
To the ground - you're nothing to me
To the ground - you're fucking killing me

Abandon all hope, washing away me in the tides
Unclenching the fists, made round my neck, accepting the end

Longing to see your face
So my hand can form into a mace
Everything smells of you
Even the gasoline that covers you

    General CommentEmmaExOh; it doesn't have many comments probably because it's only available on the special edition of the album, and hardly any people will have it... =]

    General CommentThis song is amazing in it's ability to portray such raw anger in so few lines. I'm in awe of the song, I love it's honesty.

    General CommentIt features on the Underworld Evolution soundtrack, along with Her Portrait in Black, which is a great Atreyu song.

    "A song about the outrage and unbridled anger I felt about someone. Writing this song was my release so that I could express myself in musical retaliation, not in a physical disaster." (thanks Princess =])

    I think that pretty much sums it up. "You're nothing to me ... You're fucking killing me." These lines here sum up this retrospective attitude of Heafy's.
