Burning a door in the back of my mind
Lying alone in the morning light
Feel like swallowing my eyes
I walk around the house until
My feet begin to bleed
Still I can't forget somehow

Drowning in the darkness of my mind
I dream of setting fire to everything in sight
And if I die tonight and go to hell, oh well
I wonder will I see you

Cut off my legs and you tell me to walk
Slit my own throat when you say to talk
I've been swallowing your lies
And I recall you asked about
The one you used to know
I don't know him now

Drowning in the darkness of my mind
I dream of setting fire to everything in sight
And if I die tonight and go to Hell, oh well
I wonder will I see you

My heart is burning black
My bones are cold and cracked
The venom flushed out my veins
And if you ever knew
What I'm dreaming of
You would head for the hills
You...
You better head for the hills
You...
You better head for the hills

Drowning in the darkness of my mind
I dream of setting fire to everything in sight
And if I die tonight and go to hell, oh well
I wonder will I see you

    General CommentWow. This song is amazing. I've liked it for a long time cause of the energy that's in it.
    Anyhow, recently I was looking through songs on my iPod and I highlighted over a song that my ex loved and listened to when we were together. I had a strong urge to click on it to reminisce about the old times and all, but I knew I would get hurt. I sat there, panicking and then, I pressed Menu thrice, went to my playlists and blasted this song at full volume.

    It felt pretty good.

    General Commentthis song is about a guy who got really hurt by a girl and is slowly starting to go crazy from being so depressed and angry about it. he wants to just get away from it all and "head for the hills"
    my favorite line:
    And I recall you asked about
    The one you used to know
    I don't know him now
    its saying like how he's changed so much and she's asking what happened to him and how he used to be.
    F CKING AMAZING SONG i love this band

    General CommentAlthough emo lines in verse 2 like "Cut of my legs, when you say to walk, slit my own throat when you say to talk" it is also rebellious, if someone wants him to walk or talk then if he does these instead, he cant do them too.:P

    General CommentWhen he says
    "Drowning in the darkness of my mind
    I dream of setting fire to everything in sight
    And if I die tonight and go to hell
    I wonder will I see you"

    I think chris wrote "see you" into the lyrics on purpose to put the song "see you" into our thoughts which is awesome. This band is a huge influence on me
    Keep saving the day my dudes \m/
