"The Latest Plague" as written by Matt Good, Travis Brandon Richter, Derek Alan Bloom and Sonny Moore....
What would you say?
This blood is thick
This blemished face
A dark crooked nose
And a chance to say
Whatever it wanted
Through its blemished throat
Or be alone
Would you give a fuck
If only to her
Will now depend
Like shallow water
The sound of victim men
Crawling up your walls
Fake faces everywhere I see
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down, don't tell me
Don't tell me where I don't belong
Fake faces everywhere I see
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down, don't tell me
Don't tell me where I don't belong
Oh, I heard a sick, sad voice
Oh, cause honestly, I turned to her and said
You need to be medicated
Time for another prescription
For a full side vision
If you're with me
We'll send greetings to hell
With the snap of our voices
Fake faces everywhere I see
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down, don't tell me
Don't tell me where I don't belong
Fake faces everywhere I see
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down,
Don't tell me where I don't belong
I wonder why you're oh so full of shit
You'll be knocked on the floor
So don't you push that precious sweat
Oh you judge his secrecy on shit
You'll be knocked on the floor
So don't you play
Fake faces everywhere I see
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down, don't tell me
Don't tell me where I don't belong
Fake faces everywhere I see
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down,
Don't tell me where I don't belong.

    General CommentSo after hearing the whole album already, i'm sorry i'm a sucker for leaked albums, I think that this is one of the weakest songs on the album.. but yeah.. i'm not sure what this song is about.. from first impressions maybe fake people [lmfao, i go for the obvious] but yeah.. the songs okaii I suppose.

    General Commentmuch darker than most of dear diary. but i love it.
    I can see where you would get the 'weakest songs on the album.' Alas, I will have to wait until 3.21 to hear the rest to make my own decisions.

    General Commentif you were wondering why they all seem to be about the same thing/sound similar lyric-wise, it's because sonny wrote most of the songs about finding out he was adopted. he wasn't told till like he was like 17. he said "it hurts to be lied to your whole life, especially by the people you trust the most".
    hope that provided some helpful insight.

    General Commentwhitherdrose:
    someone typed up and posted an article/interview that was from KERRANG! with sonny moore and he was talking about how that's what the album was about and how he was hurt about being lied to (basically everything i said before). so next time i go into the city i'm gonna go buy the magazine cuz they only sell KERRANG! in the city here in australia which sucks. but yeah that's how i found out.

    General Commentthese lyrics are REALLY wrong.
    What would you say,
    If this blemished face,
    This blemished face with a crooked nose
    Had a chance to say
    Whatever he wanted from his blemished world
    Of the unknown?
    And would you give a fuck
    If all that you heard
    Were nouns and verbs
    Like shallow heartache?
    The sound, of victory,
    Blowing up your world

    Fake face everywhere I see,
    Fake people looking back at me
    Sit down, don't tell me where I don't belong

    I heard a sick sad voice,
    It was honesty,
    I turned to her and said,
    We need to be medicated;
    And you're the prescription,
    For a forced out vision
    If you're with me, send the
    Critics to hell with the sound
    of our voices

    Fake faces everwhere I see,
    Fake people looking back at me
    Sit down, don't tell me where I don't belong

    All you better-thans that fed us shit,
    Will be knocked on the floor,
    So don't you place your bets just yet
    All you treasure sleepers feed on shit,
    You'll be knocked on the floor,
    So don't you place.........

    Fake faces everywhere I see,
    Fake people looking back at me
    Sit down, don't tell me where I don't belong
    ^^ THOSE are the lyrics from fftl's myspace.

    General CommentAwesome, awesome song. To be its simply about the fact that we are living in a world of fake. People who pretend to be what their not, pretend to express how they dont feel and pretend to care about what they dont give a fuck about.

    Hope the whole albums this good. I noticed Sonny still has his gorgeous squeaky voice in this song.
