with miles to drive
on a cerebral highway
where it leads our hearts to
that empire where all unfolds

we drag our knees
through these badlands
and we hurt ourselves
just to feel anything

in the mecca of us
we all glow forever

with cobwebbed eyes
an affair with the puppets
you've seemed to have forgotten
and now you sleep with the rats all alone

i held you so warm
like a brother
a part of you in a part of me so spoiled
i cut you off like a cancer

in the mecca of us
we all glow forever

its simple
how you complete my core
so potent in your eyes
to move mountains
to burn skies

we've broken
our arms and throats
for our portraits
demons or not
it doesn't make a difference to me
im so tired of screaming

in the mecca of us
we all glow forever

    General CommentI think this song is about sonny trying to communicate to his fans or a friendship that is really strong and bears a lot of scars

    General Commentwe've broken
    our arms and throats
    for our portraits

    That they have been put through alot to be known as the "hardcore/emo/whatever other label you slap alongside their name"

    demons or not
    it doesn't make a difference to me
    im so tired of screaming

    He is sick of having to change the way he looks and sound for it to appeal to other people. He just wants to act like himself.

    General CommentWell I personally think this song, is about how Sonny put himself out there and now Like element4life2257 said he just wants to be himself.

    "in the mecca of us
    we all glow forever"
    Mecca can mean hope. So Sonny's pretty much saying that he isn't giving up hope and to never give up hope.

    General CommentThis is a truely amazing song. Here is what I think each line means.

    "with miles to drive
    on a cerebral highway
    where it leads our hearts to
    that empire where all unfolds"
    -Here he is saying he still has a long way to go and eventually it will all 'unfold' and fall into place.

    "in the mecca of us
    we all glow forever"
    -As xlovexandxwarx said, Mecca can mean hope. And Sonny is saying he wont give up hope.

    "with cobwebbed eyes
    an affair with the puppets
    you've seemed to have forgotten
    and now you sleep with the rats all alone"
    -Here I think he is saying people have gotten too famous or full of themselves and it just gets them nowhere and they end up alone.

    "i held you so warm
    like a brother
    a part of you in a part of me so spoiled
    i cut you off like a cancer"
    -Here I think he is talking about FFTL. How he kept it going by being there singer and they will always be a part of him and he will be a part of them. And then suddenly, he left.

    "its simple
    how you complete my core
    so potent in your eyes
    to move mountains
    to burn skies"
    -I'm not sure here. It's like he could be talking about a girl. Or music. Like, how you can get lost in music and you can find yourself in it.

    "we've broken
    our arms and throats
    for our portraits
    demons or not
    it doesn't make a difference to me
    im so tired of screaming"
    -And of course, here he is talking about how he just wants to be himself. Instead of constantly changing to fit what other people want.

    General CommentHow can you give this song a 2? Sonny is an amazing singer. This is my favorite of his new ones so far.
