We're all eyes
And in my personal opinion
If we're not all you were hoping for
When you say my name
Say it like a curse

I saw your face in the magazine saying "I can't hear it"
All the girls all glittered and glossed
Screaming "we can feel you", can you feel me?
We'll die if we're not
In a corpse of conscience
Lie
These lies live a life
But don't lie to me

You're just chasing shadows
Show us some heart and confess your sins
We'll sing with arms closed
And you can tear us apart 'cause you won't break the skin

Just put on your face and...

I would love nothing more in the world
Than to watch you as you spill your guts.
Unrehearsed you're just a silhouette
You never had a voice so why all the fuss?
You can have the kingdom, you can have the crown,
But you wanted the people.
No, or else you drown.
(I'm not really sure about these last two lines,
it could maybe be 'you're one of the people'?)


You're just chasing shadows
Show us some heart and confess your sins
We'll sing with arms closed
You can tear us apart 'cause you wont break the skin

Put on your face
Put on your face
And scream

You're just chasing shadows
Show us some heart and confess your sins
We'll sing with arms closed
You can tear us apart 'cause you wont break the skin

Just put on your face
Just put on your face
And scream
And scream
And scream for me

    General CommentI thinki it is...

    Than to watch you as you spill your guts.
    Unrehearsed you're just a silhouette
    You never had a voice so why all the fuss?
    You can have the kingdom, you can have the crown,
    But you won't have the people, no, we'll (they'll)see you down

    seems liek it could be about press or magazines saying negative things about them "And you can tear us apart 'cause you won't break the skin"

    and or them talking about bands being fake with theer music and lyrics being in magazines. "Put on your face
    And scream"...attack on bands over doing the whole screamo thing. idk

    that parts seems to be about how all the new screamo bands nad whatnot all have the same look and act. and most of the singers that scream cant sing for shit.
