"This Conversation Is Over" as written by and Shawn/thompson Milke....
Take everything away from me silent angel

Apathy cries out from your lungs, indifference reeks of fiction
Time will tell how far you will go
I can't see why you'd run and hide excluding such complacence
As tears rain from bloodshot eyes

[Chorus]
Take everything away from me silent angel
Leave me nothing to remind me of this time now lost

The air now reeks with the presence of your vile voice
As your smile masks the advance you keep
I am not your trophy
The air now reeks with the presence of your vile voice
As your smile masks the advance you keep
I am not your trophy

Please try to say more carefully that you no longer need me
This back and forth is killing me
The only eyes you'll look into are those in your reflection
You are the means of my end

This conversation is over, it's over
Your truth is a deception meant to poison me

[Chorus]

I can't seem to believe you ever cared for me
This conversation is over
Your empty words now drift away as fragile whispers
I saw the day when the fire left your eyes, your tongue fell still
Your treason is silence
Take everything away from me silent angel
Leave me nothing to remind me of this time now lost

    General Commenti think by the first verse, he has/had a girlfriend and shes acting like she doesnt care that they broke it off, but he knows that she really does and he wonders how far shell go for her pride. and then hes saying that he doesnt understand why she hides her feelings, aside from the self-satisfaction it gives her. and he doesnt see that it's worth it.

    and then he goes on to say that he wants it all to go away. like he doesnt want to remember what theyd been through.

    and from this part it seems that she was a liar and was manipulative.

    and then he just wants her to end it. he wants her to just flat out say that its over, because hes tired of going "back and forth." and shes selfish and cant look past her own wants and aspirations and its killing him because he still loves her.

    and then he ends it himself saying "this conversation is over." and shes incapable of telling him the truth or giving him what he needs

    hes basically talking about a relationship that was a complete lie and he wants it to end. he wants to stop holding onto it.

    ... i guess ^_^;

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the story is based on Echo and Narcissus. Echo loves Narcissus and Narcissus loves himself. Narcissus is so in love with himself that he can not stray away from his own reflection in a lake and stays there looking at his reflection until he dies, hench the part of the song which says:

    the only eyes you'll look into are those in your reflection
    you are the means of my end

    Echo is a wood nymph which is addicted to hearing her own voice and always had to have the last word in a conversation. She would occasionally keep Hera, Zeus' wife busy while Zeus would womanize among the other nymphs. When Hera found out she took away Echo's ability to speak freely, and the only words she could say were those which were last spoken to her by another person.

    When Echo is turned down by Narcissus, she then mourns for the rest of her days until she fades away.
    An excerpt from a poem by Alan Cook based on the relationship between Echo and Narcissus states:

    "Though Echo was hiding, was hiding, her heart
    Was burning with red-hot fire...
    ...Alas, Narcissus knew nothing of love;
    In him there burned no flame."

    this explains the part of the song that says

    "your empty words now drift away as fragile whispers
    I saw the day when the fire left your eyes, your tongue fell still"

    I'm too lazy to explain anymore. I urge you all to look up the story of Echo and Narcissus if you want to understand the whole song.

    General CommentI Love This Song :)

    Ermm..

    I Think This Songs About His Relationship With His Girlfriend...And How Sick He Is Of The Way She Constantly Lies To Him...And He Feels Like She Doesnt Need Him Anymore And That The Only Person She Cares About Is Herself And There Is No Love In Thier Relationship...So Basically Hes Telling Her That "This Conversation Is Over" I Dont Want To Hear Anymore Of Your Lies.....And I Think The Line "Nothing To Remind Me Of This Time Now Lost" Means That He Doesnt Want Anything To Remind Him Of Her

    :)
