Break yourself, not coming out of this foolish game. What could I have said?
If you're uncomfortable, baby please tell me. Point me to the right place?

Run there, if you're going, then I'm taking you away with me... (Just because)
If I had my way, I'd lie to you and tell the truth, I'm joking. Get away from me. (Just because)

Did his helpless hands, take you away from this. Did it feel so good? Oh no... Yeah!?
I didn't get the feeling you had an answer. Explain yourself!! God it feels surreal.

Break yourself, without a moment to,
Embellish truth... Signed by you.
Hear the roar, and in a second more,
You'll be overboard... Goodbye...

This is where we stand!
This is where we stand!

    General CommentThere's a fair few references to sex from what I'm seeing (if you look back on it after reading the last word) at least to me.

    Especially having trouble with sex/relationship? That's just what I see when I read it.

    General CommentThe song seems to be about how he and a girl had issues which led up to her cheating on him. The lines, "Did his helpless hands, take you away from this. Did it feel so good? Oh no... Yeah!?" I believe refer to the man in the affair's innocence, while she tries to get around saying it was worth cheating on him for the sex.

    General CommentI agree with Manipulator
    Also the lines "Break yourself, without a moment to,
    Embellish truth... Signed by you.
    Hear the roar, and in a second more,
    You'll be overboard... Goodbye..." shows the frustration in his mind - hi's saying goodbye to his loved one

    General CommentOk, yes, sex, cheating...the first thing that came to my mind as I was reading was sexual abuse. Rape. The narrator's girlfriend is cheating on him, and her secret boyfriend on the side is abusing her?

    Looking back it does not look that complicated. It makes perfect since to leave it at "cheating."

    The song title appears to be protesting deforestation and industrialization...a.k.a. destroying something beautiful in exchange for creating something artificial. Fitting, no?

    General Commenti think it might have to do with the persons gf cheating on him, and then later in the song he might kill her or abuse her in some way (hence the line "Hear the roar, and in a second more, You'll be overboard... Goodbye...") that just my interpretation of the song... So has anyone seen them on the tour with coheed yet? They came down to atlanta and were amazing.... the set was short though and then clutch had to ruin the energy from TFT...

    General CommentI believe that this album is either a theme album or it is an concept album. It starts of with Cut Down All The Trees And Name The Streets After Them in which a guy finding out his girlfriend was cheating on him. Then Dark Trail has references to using drugs which seems like it starts a new story going to Quarter Past about him being a drug addict and is in love with someone but cant talk to. Then it seems like the character is getting a blow job in Problem!? it seems also that the woman giving him head is a drug addict too. Then he eventually kills the girl in Semi-Fiction because it seems that the woman had feelings for him but he didn't. Then he starts to remember his girlfriend that he was thinking about in Quarter Past in Oh the Casino !. I cant think of anything else that seems like a story right now but the reason why it will be a theme album because it is all about pressure and there is almost always a drug reference in the album.
