"Waves Goodbye" as written by Matt Good, Travis Brandon Richter, Derek Alan Bloom and Sonny Moore....
There's an ocean out my window
There's beauty in its tears
There's an ocean out my window
It's crashing in my ears

Oh sea, your shelter
You dance between my toes
When I feel like I can't move forward
You carry me like a father

Breathing is the hardest thing I do
I'm not the only person in the room
It's hard for me, to feel like I'm perfect

    General Commentthe way this song was put together reminds me of the beats on 'i liked you better before oyu were naked on the internet'. just as sad, just as gorgeous.

    hmm.. this song is hard to find a meaning. but basing it on the on the other songs, i think it involves family. most of the other songs were about sonny finding out he was adopted... here, i'll break it down in stages...

    *There's an ocean out my window
    There's beauty in its tears
    There's an ocean out my window
    It's crashing in my ears*
    > having something beautiful, and then pain and truth come crashing down on you. (like a family lying to you)

    *Oh sea, your shelter
    You dance between my toes
    When I feel like I can't move forward
    You carry me like a father*
    > he's talking about how his family (sea) has taken care of him even though he was adopted

    *Breathing is the hardest thing I do
    I'm not the only person in the room
    It's hard for me, to feel like I'm perfect*
    >(best verse) saying how it's hard to feel like he's part of 'his' family... and their are many other adoptions like him(?)

    it's either all that i randomly thought up, or he see's the ocean as something so pure and simple, that he can lose all his troubles in it and it's like the father he never truely had.

    i dunno.. i'm known for my far-fetched meanings.

    General CommentDeathByPoison gave a really thorough explaination..
    i dont know.. i didnt like this song at all but the vocals were amazing. the electronic sounds in the back were so distracting. but i heard that if you play it backwards somehow, there's a hidden message in the song.
