"I am Waves" as written by and Jonas Ladekjaer....
My hands live in vain
I wont let go but I'll walk away
I've got this fear of flying
I'll pick myself up off the floor
and I'm still standing
I'm holding on this time
and I won't let you go this time

I'll let it fall apart and watch you tremble
I'm watching the world as they're pulling you down
it's better to believe
I know its better to believe
nothing can stop this from happening

Is this what you wanted?
is this what you need?
I watched you shaking
calling out for me

Could it get any better
better to believe
I think it's getting better
better to agree

Is this what you call home
as you turn it around
I know you'll never mean it
you'll never get the hope that you deserve
it's no surprise that the air keeps you still
on this stable ground that
once shook so lightly

    General Commentfound emarosa off a hardcore imix on itunes! ( ! _ ! ) this song is really great, one of my favorites from them. cant wait till they get a full length out. this song i think is about beleiving in something and the reality being another, watching your life go by and not participating in it, holding on becuase you know what you lost (or what happened) the last time you let go. very primitive idea of mine, ill go more in depth eventually. if you like this band i suggest A Skylit Drive and Escape the Fate! screamo rocks.

    General Commentwhen he says, "it's better to believe, i know it's better to believe!", he couldn't possibly sound more like Spencer Chamberlain.

    But anyway, it's a pretty good tune.

    General CommentThis is seriously the best hardcore song I've ever heard. With the intro and then that crazy breakdown it's just epic.

    General CommentSo not many comments seeing as how the REAL emarosa died forever ago when jonny joined and changed the sound completely.

    I'm seeing this song as being about somebody who got knocked down by life, and had no help "I'll pick myself up off the floor
    and I'm still standing
    I'm holding on this time
    and I won't let you go this time"

    And then when this other person(significant other, friend?) ends up in the same situation, since they never helped him he is going to return the favor.
    "I'll let it fall apart and watch you tremble
    I'm watching the world as they're pulling you down"

    "Could it get any better
    better to believe"- going back and forth between guilt and that awfull pleasure from watching somebody who hurt you suffer.
    Honestly a pretty damn interesting song lyrically.

    BEST post-hardcore cd in my library of music.. too bad the amazingness was short lived. they pack so much brutal & emotional shit into such a short song. fuckin great. its raw & unedited sounding, so real.
