Every night devise new heights in genocide.
Lover, I am loveless
All my friends and I toast health and suicide.
Lover, I am lonely

Were you holding hands when
my palms bled?

Oh, I will be all right.
Just use me. Just use me
The future's bright without me
Spend some time walking the line

World is unified. Ennui, and I divide
Lover I am loveless
Red days and burning might bleed 'til the faceless die
Oh, lover I am lonely

Were you holding hands when
my wrists bled?

Oh, I will be all right.
Just use me. Just use me
The future's bright without me
Spend some time walking the line
Spend some time walking the line

So stay sweetly numb
Remain lifeless, love
Stay sweetly numb
Maintain lifeless Love
Stay sweetly numb
Remain lifeless, love


Oh, I will be all right.
Just use me. Just use me
The future's bright without me
Spend some time walking the line
Spend some time walking the line

    General CommentALL that being said... i truly love afi and have a deep passion for their music. i understand what the band is all abt and i support their every step. i KNOW that whatever album they come up with next will be AMAZING, SORROWFUL, SAD, MELANCHOLIC, HEARTWARMING, and INCREDIBLE... i am looking forward to it, because their last seven have been an amazing journey for me and a whole bunch of other afi fans out there who i KNOW love them as much as i do. =*). the AMAZING and PUTSTANDING 7 albums include: sing the sorrow, black sails in the sunset, the art of drowning, {decemberunderground}, answer that and stay fashionable, shut your mouth and open your eyes, and very proud of ya.

    General Commentthis is what davey havok said that the meaning of DECEMBERUNDERGROUND really is... not necessarily the songs, but a real place where people can feel safe, wanted, and needed. where all people that need to hear that they are wanted and needed and safe can bind together and 'we all form one dark flame!' "DECEMBERUNDERGROUND is a time and a place. It is where the cold can huddle together in darkness and isolation. It is a community of those detached and disillusioned who flee to love, like winter, in the recesses below the rest of the world."-Davey Havok
    just though you guys might want to know this...
    i know that when i put in this CD and listen to it that i am safe, wanted, and needed. and i should and can hold on longer.
    their music gives me hope.
    it gives me faith.
    it gives me reason...

    General CommentREAL LYRICS:

    Every night devise new heights in genocide. Lover I am loveless. All my friends and I toast
    health and suicide. Lover, I am lonely. Were you holding hands when my palms bled? Oh,
    I will be all right...just use me. The future's bright without me. Spend some time walking the line.
    World is unified. Ennui, and I divide. Lover, I am loveless. Red days burning might bleed till the
    faceless die. Oh, lover I am lonely. Were you holding hands when my wrists bled? So stay
    sweetly numb. Remain lifeless, love. So stay sweetly numb. Maintain lifeless love.

    General CommentSong IMO about government and rules along with being a human (following rules "Spend some time, walk the line")

    As for what's being said after the song:
    'I cant find either one of them now
    Uh, Dad's here
    I cant find either one of them
    ok, where are you
    wait
    because im asking for a simple favor and she wont even do that, and so im gonna help him out and then ill be back home'
