it was the faulty foundation
said the weeping eyes
the architecture bends under pressure
the architecture broke over lies
they said "just a trend"
they said "just a phase"
they were right
now every person in this place will lose their fucking lives
i am a burning building bringing everyone inside to the ground
in the time it takes
to make things right
we'll make new memories
this feeling will have passed
i'll have said goodbye
you'll have gone and went
i'll turn my back on the only meaning in my past
what destroys me
will have saved my life
we are gone
i am a burning building bringing everyone inside to the ground

    General Commentthis song is great, especially the way you can hear the obvious desperation in his voice.

    General Commenti think that he feels that he is killing everyone around him (not in a literal sense).

    "i am a burning building bringing everyone inside to the ground"

    at the beginning he is saying that it wasn't his fault that he has that effect on people though, and that it was his upbringing partly.

    General CommentI agree with yesterdaysties, that he feels like he's killing everyone around him (not in a literal sense)

    "it was the faulty foundation
    said the weeping eyes
    the architecture bends under pressure
    the architecture broke over lies"
    -he was weak to begin with says someone who cares about him. He broke under pressure and his lies

    "they said "just a trend"
    they said "just a phase"
    they were right
    now every person in this place will lose their fucking lives"
    -peple around him said he was just going through a trend or phase, he agrees.
    but in doing so he's destroyed those around him, it's ruined his relationships with them.

    "i am a burning building bringing everyone inside to the ground"
    -this line sums up the entire song.
    He is destroying himself, and those aound him. He's ruining himself and his relationships with others.

    "in the time it takes
    to make things right
    we'll make new memories
    this feeling will have passed
    i'll have said goodbye
    you'll have gone and went"
    in the time it takes to heal things he has done,
    it wont matter anymore because he'll have said goodbye and ended the relationship, and everyone will forget about him and his sins.

    "i'll turn my back on the only meaning in my past
    what destroys me
    will have saved my life
    we are gone"
    he has turned his back on the one thing in he has done thast really meant anything, even if it was bad.
    whatever he had done saved him, but ruined himself in the process and the relationship he held with others.
