"Daggers Speak Louder Than Words" as written by and Shawn/thompson Milke....
Eyes open to splattered blood
Cold tile mocks me as I arise to find the knife is still in my back
Shifting thoughts now slow with venom
Take me as I stagger...is this all we were worth?
I've lost you for good without regret
Your once gentle words now bleeding from my chest
Screams of terror now fill my every breath
I know you'll rue the day you ever met me
I'll lay you down to sleep when sorrow will bury the blade hilt deep

You know I would have died for you
Now I'm forced to choose between a life of revenge or regret
As I thirst for vengeance, my heart struggles to come to grips
Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?

Alone, you stood so still as you watched me break
Did it now kill you too? what has led you to the dagger my friend?

You know I would have died for you
Now I'm forced to choose between a life of revenge or regret
As I thirst for vengeance, my heart struggles to come to grips
Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?

My revenge is made so clear midst cold tears left with the betrayed
I'll see that you never forget this
I will hunt you down like a dog
Lies could never disguise what I saw behind me in you
Remembering times we have shared...my friend for life is gone
We'll let the embers serve as the only memory of last days, so long ago

Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?
Why would you leave me to die after you had buried the dagger hilt deep?

You're dead to me
I would have died for you
Now I'm forced to choose between a life of revenge or regret
As I thirst for vengeance, my heart struggles to come to grips
Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?
You're dead to me

    General Commentthis song is about the story of julius caesar and his assassination by marcus brutus and the 8 other conspirators. Brutus was a roman senator and one of caesars closest friends but he is convinced into thinking that if caesar becomes the sole dictator of rome that he will be corrupted by power and become a tyrant (at this time, the roman empire was ruled by many men). thus, he kills caesar not because he hates him but for the good for the roman empire (he beleives). Legend has it that when caesar saw brutus stab him, it broke his heart emotionally and died because of a broken heart. After a shitload of twists and turns, brutus then commits suicide in a battle between him, another conspirator and 2 of caesars followers after seeing his best friend fall in battle.

    General Commentfrom my interpretation i think its about a guy who was screwed over in a relationship hence(eyes open to splattered blood
    cold tile mocks me as I arise to find the knife is still in my back) all of that is saying how she stabbed him in the back and now hes upset and pissed off and is trying to find a way to get back at her for what shes done to him.
    and lastly he doesnt understand how she can just walk away from all this thinking nothing she did was wrong

    General CommentI don't think it's about a relationship, but more of a best friend that stabbed him in the back.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about someone getting stabbed in the back by a person who they thought was their friend...I love this song because I can easily relate. Someone who I thought was my best friend stabbed me in the back, and now is not my friend any longer. Alesana, you rock!

    General Commentyea i think its bout a dude who would do anything for his gf hence"you kno i would have died for you" but then she just stabs him in the back and leaves him like he has no feeling at all like she never knew him and he wants revenge but then he has regret saying he thinks he mighta done something rong so hes regretful but still wnts revenge so hes torn between the two then he remembers their good times and thinks how she coulda dne tht wen things were good but he wnts the revenge soon hence "i will hunt like a dog" hope it was good
