I know you spent your money to see
What you hear on cd
They say what doesn’t kill the soul will make it harder but you can’t be a stone hearted man
This isn’t just a waste of time, addictions made me smarter but u can’t be high all the time


And do you realize that you apologize, when it’s not your fault, cause were all fucked up.
And do you really think that it’s worth it, to be all worried about time

Cause I know what you want i think i know i think i know what you want

I know you spent your money to see what you love on cd

They say what doesn’t kill the soul will make it harder but you can’t be a stone hearted man
This isn’t just a waste of time, addictions made me stronger but you can’t get stoned all of the time

well do you realize that you apologize, when its not your fault, cause were all fucked up
And do you really think that it’s worth it, to be all worried about time, worried about time

Cause I know what you want, i think i know i think i i think i know i think i i think i know what you want what you want

    General Commentthis is from wikipedia:

    "During the four shows that The Sound of Animals Fighting played in the summer of 2006, Anthony performed some of his solo work, along with acoustic versions of Saosin and Circa Survive songs as well as an acoustic version of "Stone Hearted Man", a song by his new side project with other Circa Survive members, Moshtradamus."

    So yeah, I guess Anthony has yet another side project. But I'm not complaining. More music is a good thing.

    If you go to myspace.com/… you can see their myspace site. everything on there says "this isn't real" or whatever but it is most def anthony green unless someone has an indentical voice. also under band members it says "priest homes, churchmoney" along with like 10 other random things. on circas myspace, it says "priest homes, churchmoney" too. check out that site bc a lot of the things are funny.

    like this:
    Band Website: notasideprojectoreventhatgoodofajoke.com/

    Band Members: priest homes, churchmoney, conky,Jesus,stang the hoobo,the ten puppy boys choir,dennis hopper,meredith verbena the impossible bitch. crickets. the"this is not a side project or a real band or fucking anything"funk allstars.

    Influences: living together.

    Sounds Like: jingle jangle jangle jingle

    Record Label: religion records.

    Type of Label: Indie



    currently they have this song and another song on there. the other song is purely instrumental. but this song is like the studio version, not the live version like you can hear on youtube or download on thischangeseverything.org

    yeah sorry for this awfully long post but i thought you all should know. well that and that i'm bored in school. hah enjoy :]

    oh and if anyone knows more, than please add it

    General Commenti don't know where these lyrics came from, but these are the lyrics to my version:



    I know you spent your money to see
    what you hear on cd.
    They say what doesn’t kill the soul will make it harder,
    but you can’t be a stone hearted man.
    This isn’t just a waste of time,
    addictions made me stronger but you can’t be high all the time.

    Do you realize why you apologize when it’s not your fault,
    were all fucked up.
    Do you really think that it’s worth it
    to be all worried about time?

    I know what you want, it’s not going to get you anywhere.
    I know you gave your money to me
    for what you loved on cd.

    They say what doesn’t kill the spirit will make it harder,
    but you can’t be a stone hearted man.
    This isn’t just a waste of time,
    addictions made me smarter but you can’t be stoned all the time.

    Do you realize that you apologize when it’s not your fault?
    We’re all fucked up.
    Do you really think that it’s worth it
    to worry about time,
    worry about time?

    General CommentHere is my interpretation of one of my favorites of Anthony's acoustic songs.

    "I know you spent your money to see
    What you hear on cd
    This isn’t just a waste of time, addictions made me smarter but u can’t be high all the time"
    The first line of this song basically says that he is sorry that he doesn't perform exactly what he played on cd's live because of his addictions. It also expresses the fact that he wants to break away from his addictions.

    "They say what doesn’t kill the soul will make it harder but you can’t be a stone hearted man
    And do you realize why you apologize, well it’s not your fault, cause were all fucked up.
    And do you really think that it’s worth it, to be all worried about time"
    His addictions have made him a bigger and stronger person, but he can't become a jerk because of his recovery and have no emotions. He then says that everyone is a bit messed up and that there is no reason to apologize for being human and making mistakes. If you spend your whole life apologizing for the past and for mistakes, then you will lose track of time and life will pass you by.

    "Cause I know what you want, its not going to get you anywhere
    I know you spent your money to see what you love on cd"
    Like stated earlier, if they want to keep apologizing for their mistakes life will pass them by and the won't get anywhere.

    "They say what doesn’t kill your soul will make it stronger but you can’t be a stone hearted man
    This isn’t just a waste of time, addictions made me smarter but you can’t get stoned all of the time"
    Like stated earlier, what mistakes you've made make you stronger, but they shouldn't leave you feeling void of emotion and stone hearted. It also (like stated earlier) talks about him pulling away from his addictions.

    "Do you realize why you apologize, well its not your fault, cause were all fucked up
    And do you really think that it’s worth it, to be all worried about time, worried about time….no
    But don’t worry don’t
    Don’t worry don’t cause I know"
    Like stated earlier, If you spend your whole life apologizing for the past and for mistakes, then you will lose track of time and life will pass you by. He asks the person, "Is it really worth losing a track of your life over worrying? Don't worry".


    "Cause I know what you want, and its not going to get you anywhere
    But you need to be, but you need to be free
    be free
    be free
    but you need to be free"
    Anthony is basically saying that the person he is talking to has worries that aren't going to let them get anywhere, and if they let them be free, they will go places. The worries could be a metaphor for Anthony's own addictions, and how by letting go of them he can be free and not worry about wasting his life away.

    P.S. Moshtradamus isn't his "new band" in a permanent sense, he and the rest of Circa Survive are very much active. He has stated on many occasions that he did this to release personal songs and that Circa is his main focus.

    General Commentseriously why the fuck does everyone do anything BUT comment on what the song means??

    srsly thanks hanna405 for actually attempting to interpret it and not just giving me information on nostradomous and whether or not its his new band or not...

    any ways,,,this song is pretty self explanatory but i think its him basicaly saying that his addictions make it easier to deal with all the shit that comes his way and that even though its easier because of being stoned all the time...that he cant
    always be that way, he has to attempt to feel and attempt to get through situations without his addictions.
    i think its like a bittersweet advantage that he gets when hes struggling with these addictions..
    " they say what doesnt kill the soul will make it harder but you cant be a stonehearted man"

    its okay to protect yourself, as a matter of fact its pretty much a necesity in order to avoid people taking advantage and huting you but dont let it consume you to where you lose your heart and compassion.
