"Traitors Never Play Hangman" as written by and Matthew Stephen Nicholls Matthew Kean....
This is what the edge of your seat was made for,
Holding on, nothing to lose,
This is what the edge of your seat was made for,
And this,

This is what the back of your hand was made for,
Stolen apologies,
Stolen apologies, you,

You're a traitor to my heart,
You're a traitor to us all,

Forsaken,

This over indulgence of conciseness,
Has torn a day apart,
And lingered in the splendor,
Of the feeling in my stomach,
Trailing down the shadow of cupped hands,
Covering my face,
I wait for what I have to do,

Forsaken,

We're all movie stars,
We're all movie stars,
We're all movie stars,
We're all movie stars,

(And I'm speaking these words)
(And I'm talking to the mirror)

You're a traitor to my heart,
You're a traitor to us fucking all,

I don't want to kiss anyone,
I don't want to kiss anyone but you,
I fucking love you

    Trailing down the shadow of cupped hands
    Covering my face
    Away from the need to talk to my miscalculation
    Forsaken!!

    General CommentI guess Oli explained it better than anyone could, cool. I love the croaking at the end, it's very unsettling.

    General CommentThanks for that =]

    Actually, just changed alot of the lyrics, when I first posted them it was what I could make out from the screaming but, just recently, heard the acoustic version didn't I ¬.¬ He sings and it's so much easier to understand =P

    This is what Oli [lead singer] wrote about the song.

    This song is me trying to convince myself it was OK to cheat on my girlfriend. That it was like a movie plot, the overindulgence part from that is spoken in the song is where i was nocturnal for a couple of days and all the days got ripped appart from me- and how horrible life felt, there's nothing worse than guilt, but hey..shit happens.
