Some kind of friction has scarred me, but created your new style.
My reasons to endure used to be based around who you were and your brilliant passion that could blaze right in front of a perfect stranger.
This is my downfall- my blemish.
I've been told before.
Quit holding on to what she was.
She doesn't recognize you or herself anymore.
She's stuck in the process of embracing what crumbles and when it happens there will be no apologies.
She chose to collapse what held her, and if not cautious there may never be a cradle to soften her descent, like clouds.
New shapes are taken, but they're not always actual.
They're never tangible.
It's so brutal to see someone give it all up for nothing and having no power to stop them.

    General CommentThis song is about seeing someone giving up and stop caring about his own life, and you (the man who watching from the side) can do anything to help them .

    General CommentI think the last line is "give it all up for nothing". Anyway, this song's about seeing someone you care about just start screwing around and messing up and not letting them drag you down too. Hence, it's "too late for roses" to make the situation better.

    General CommentI love this song. It's not as monotoneos as the other ones usually are - constand bashing basically. I'm not used to that style I guess. The melody in between is fitting.

    General CommentNow this is what metalcore is about. ABR are another great metalcore band who use a different form of lyrical writing, where it seems more like the band is trying to tell you something. It makes them so much easier to interperate, and it also strengthens the meaning without the bullshit cliche "romance and suicide" theme plenty of bands are doing lyrically.

    Anyway, i think this song is about a guy who had just left a serious relationship, but then he's begins to be sucked in by her, and they are trying to tell him to move on and get over her, because he is only making things worse.

    This song is about

    General CommentEvery song on thrill seeker corresponds to one of the seven deadly sins. In this case rage vs forgivness. Although he has been hurt by this girl who has changed so much for the worst, he shows compassion and caring. Instead of feeling rage towards this girl for what she has done he forgives and continues to care for her.
