lessons we write are just conventions, and as we grow we see that there's too much more than that. the blood flows from my nose. to justify the hits that i received. what will they think of me now that i'm not scared? there's so many pieces they left out and i'm proud that i can put it together on my own. i'm not scared.

dream alone. i say, "for your own, here is myself." to love and become. but i don't exist at all. though i try, still in vain. all for myself. still i try to get the message. why still try when no one's listening. i've got to have it for my own. where are you going. where have you been.

blood binds us yet pushes us so far apart. a collection of characteristics, a shared name. a photobook burial of borrowed memories - a glorious misrepresentation of what we never were. home videos hang hollow in a house so stale with age. tradition ties the knot on strings attached to this notion of family.

    General Commentwell the first paragraph sounds like remembering about being beaten up at school. the second paragraph sounds more like trying to be noticed by a girl. The third paragraph sounds like drifting away from your family and how the home videos and pictures are just lies and dont show the families true problems.

    All in all this song is beautiful to no end as soon as i heard him say "the blood flows" i knew i loved this song.
