It's the consequence of privileged information.
You can run, you can hide,
But light will find a way
And wither away

Haunted and haunting, we all are followed
By shadows from martyrs and mercenaries
Diseased by information
Plagued by what we know.

Burn the evidence; It's enough to make a case
It's enough to incriminate

Down the empty corridor to the coroner
It's clear, you've got what they want, and they'll find you
Haunted and haunting, we are followed by shadows
Plagued by what we know

It's just a matter of time before they find out.
It's just a matter of time, young man.

Her fingers, like spiders, spun a web my body couldn't shed

    General CommentThis song is awesome live. I saw them last night, it was just great. I've been listening to TREOS for a while, and it was just so awesome to acutally see them live. Circa Survive was great as well.

    General CommentI think the lyrics of the song are pretty self explanitory;

    "It's the consequence of privileged information.
    You can run, you can hide,
    But light will find a way"

    Someone knows too much, something they shouldn't.

    "Haunted and haunting, we all are followed
    By shadows from martyrs and mercenaries"
    Whoever it is is hunted by people who want them dead, eg. The Government? Someone knows too much?

    "Plagued by what we know."
    The information they know will eventually lead to their death.


    "Burn the evidence; It's enough to make a case
    It's enough to incriminate"
    Explains itself.

    While the lyrics of this absolutely astounding song seem obvious, I belive that they'r a cover up to something deeper, and the whole "Someone who knows somehting they shouldn't" is simply a metaphor hiding another meaning.

    RIP The Receiving End of Sirens, the best band ever.
