Sometimes we talk, we talk oh so much
Sometimes we talk, we talk so damn much
That we forget why we ever started talking
In the first, the first place

In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
With what comes from your mouth than what you believe
So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
I bet your ship sinks with the wave of so many

Energy, by nature, breeds Siamese perspectives
Divergent views on the surface underneath connected
And what a state we're in when we can't forgive anyone
For the same mistakes we've made ourselves a million
Times before; we've begun
To place the blame on others' tongues

In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
With what comes from your mouth than what you put in
So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
I bet your ship sinks with the wave of so many

We have begun to replace wisdom with vanity
And hold others accountable for the condition of our own feet

In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
With what comes from your mouth than what you put in
So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
I bet your ship wrecked with the weight of so many

There's a battle in a backyard alley
Brothers fight over what's not there
These siblings will be sad to find that war is the winner
We keep fighting for position in a human race that never began
Where the start and the end are both made up of the same thin air

    General Commentgood job on the other parts though. I made a few alterations:


    Sometimes we talk, we talk oh so much
    Sometimes we talk, we talk so damn much
    That we forget why we ever started talking
    In the first, the first place

    In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
    With what comes from your mouth than what you believe
    So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
    I bet your ship sinks with the wave of so many

    Energy, by nature, inside of these perspectives
    Divergent views on the surface,underneath,connected
    And what a state we're in when we can't forgive anyone
    For the same mistakes we've made ourselves a million

    Times before we've become
    To place the blame on others' tongues

    In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
    With what comes from your mouth than what you believe
    So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
    I bet your ship sinks with the wave of so many

    We have begun to replace wisdom with vanity
    And hold others accountable for the coalition of our own feat

    In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
    With what comes from your mouth than what you believe
    So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
    I bet your ship wrecked with the waves of so many

    There's a battle in a backyard alley
    Brothers fight over almost nothing
    These siblings will be sad to find that war is the winner
    We keep fighting for position in a human race that never began
    Where the start and the end are both made up; the same thing

    General Commentah well all i saw was you making your amendments to the lyrics..just a misunderstanding.

    thought you were just adding your own touches to their work.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that the first guy had it more right than the second one.

    In a land of pirates, I'd be more concerned
    With what comes from your mouth than what you put in
    So flood your deck with quips fit for royalty
    I bet your ship sinks with the wave of so many

    and

    Times before we've become
    To place the blame on others' tongues

    - the "become" should be "begun"

    That's all, and everyone buy the album. March 6.
