Oh dear i've been a bad bad boy...
BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BOY!!!!!
(Shut the door, you're letting in the wolves!!
I want some answers, and I want them now!!)
Tangible, the way that I want you to feel... To me!!
(This city we occupy is sinking into the sea!!!)

Color ourselves, and shade you in lies,
Talk you to sleep, on the other end of the line,
You beg for... your life!!!

Sleep by day.
Sleep the day by...
(Knives for teeth sing lullabies when underneath the sheets)
Arson's just a felony,
and trusting you is burning me... alive!

Color ourselves, and shade you in lies,
Talk you to sleep, on the other end of the line,
You beg for... your life!!!

She's tying up herself!!!
Let's map apart her cells...
Smell the endorphines.
She's tying up herself!!!
Who's she gonna tell!?!?
NOT HIM!!!!

    General CommentYeah, I can tell it's about Seattle/Mukilteo.

    "Seattlantis"

    "The city we occupy is sinking into the sea"

    Sleep by day, sleep by day.

    I think it might also be about them growing up together, and being young.

    General CommentYou might want to check those lyrics now,
    Because they changed with the release of Manipulator.

    General CommentI'm not shure if "Knives for teeth sing lullabies when underneath the sheets" is right. I think he is singing (shouting?) something completly different. Oh and after "and trusting you is burning me... alive!" Tim shouts something else. Of course I can't understand what it is. Someone see the Manipulator's booklet, plz !
