Draw these strings tight
Keep yourself inside
Don't just lie there
Part your lips and smile, Oh

So you're dimming the lights again
Glowing inside again
Words exploding
Just like poem's
Carve them in stone
So the love can't be torn apart

Past this blacken
Lies perfection's eye's
This perfection is rightfully mine

So you're dimming the lights again
Glowing inside again
Words exploding
Just like poem's
Carve them in stone
So the love can't be torn apart

So you're dimming the lights again
Glowing inside again
Words exploding
Just like poem's
Carve them in stone
So the love can't be torn apart

Carve them in stone
So the love can't be torn apart

And I... Will Wait... For nothing...
For You...
And I... Will Wait... For nothing...
For You...
And I... Will Wait... For nothing...
For You...

    General CommentPersonally, I think its about a guy thats in love with a girl but she's constricted within herself and won't let herself totally be with him.. and he's sick of that but he can't get over her at the same time.. awesome song

    General CommentAlot of the reasons that thins song was written sounds a bit off im not sure, i guess only Matthewww will know what it is really written about.
    I am leaning to the whole, he loves this chick but she deosnt love him back so when it says;
    " and i will wait..for nothing..for you" it prolly means that he will wait for her but he knows that he will never have her, he we bill waiting for nothing, becasue he knows that he has not chance with her? get it??
    But its great to see ppl loving these guys as much as me! =D
    They are one of my fav bands,.,,ive seen them live and they are fantaastic!

    General CommentI think this song is about him and a girl - the girl is cheating on her boyfriend with the singer. One where he is much more emotionally attached the the girl.

    Draw these strings tight
    Keep yourself inside
    Don't just lie there
    Part your lips and smile, Oh
    -Drawing the strings tight could refer to her shorts (taking it literally) or to drawing the blind's string tight so the blinds are shut tight. He tells her to not to just lie there but smile because she is beginning to feel guilty.

    So you're dimming the lights again
    Glowing inside again
    Words exploding
    Just like poem's
    Carve them in stone
    So the love can't be torn apart
    -This is the part where the girl is beginning to get more passionate and they began exchanging intense words with one another (along with possibly other things) and he said to carve the words in stone because they will just be torn apart if she is only saying it to say it.

    Past this blacken
    Lies perfection's eye's
    This perfection is rightfully mine
    -He is trying to say that although he is broken and blackened on the outside, understand he is so much more and she doesn't see it.

    And I... Will Wait... For nothing...

    -I think this is the part where he finally realizes everything in the song and he's letting her know. She may have promised something will happen (this is where the part where the words come out like poems and he wants them to be for real) but he knows it won't.
