I put the knife in my heart. I don't remember to bite, over and over. My hands forever tied down watching your smile float by. I'm left over.

I don't want you to be happy without me

I'm sick inside of this cell that I have put myself in, over and over. they say these moments will pass, but what will I become then? One less soldier. One dead soldier.

I'll always be a minor chord filled with endless sustain. I'll give you everything I am if you want it. Do you want it?

One dead soldier...

    General Commentthis song is awesome.....by far their best one!

    i saw them perform at headliners in louisville, ky and they really caught my attention. love their performances! They are really good live. and umm...gregaaron...you should hook me up with your cousin! lol

    good stuff...this is their best one and i didn't know what it was about bc at the show he said it was "up to speculation" or interpretation or something...so i thought i would check it out. so thanks for the info! : )

    General CommentThis came off the band's myspace (myspace.com/residentheromusic) & I just thought it should be here.
    "i call this song the career ender. it's that fucking song that everyone always wants to hear. i mean, i do appreciate that, but if it came out first we'd be deep blue something. i wrote this one as a prediction to the end of a relationship. the thing that kills me is that people sing it so passionately and sweetly, but it's such a selfish song."
