"The Witness" as written by and David Michael Nadolski Matthew Joseph Nadolski....
I shed some light into this hopeless mess
Shield the most innocent eyes, precious witnesses
Don't watch I'm slipping
I'm loosing sight of myself
Feels like the first time
And I don't want you to see me like this

'Cause this life won't go on and on
And it's not we're trying to live
A life that's greed and frowns your countenance
Leaving you alone and desperate

Turn the light on, answer my darkest hour
You let your demons slip away, unaccounted for
Don't watch, I'm falling,
I'm loosing part of myself
This is the last time
That you will ever see me like this

This life won't go on and on
And it's not we're trying to live
A life that's greed and frowns your countenance
Leaving you alone and desperate

All of the faces I have seen
Dark silouetes abandon me
Those are eyes, now let me see
All of the lies that we miss

'Cause this life won't go on and on
And it's not we're trying to live
A life that's greed and frowns your countenance
Leaving you alone and desperate

All of the faces that I've seen
Dark siloutes abandon me
And the thought of you makes me let it go
Let it go

    General CommentGood song, really good band. Too bad that not much people has heard of them. >.< Let me try to comprehend some parts.

    "Don't watch, I'm falling,
    I'm loosing part of myself
    This is the last time
    That you will ever see me like this"
    I guess he says that he's trying to let go of all the bad that has happened to him.

    "All of the faces that I've seen
    Dark siloutes abandon me
    And the thought of you makes me let it go
    Let it go"
    Obviously, whenever he's around his chick, she makes him forget all the pain/loneliness. :)
