"You Got A Henna Tattoo That Said Forever" as written by Frank Palmeri, Jesse Ketive, Mark Davis, Joseph Lionetti and Benjamin Lionetti....
Take me somewhere familiar.
So I can find myself again.
It hurts more than you know.
And I'll ask you, Why?.
Why would you lie to me.
What was the point?
Was your intention to waste my time?
Thought I was digging deep.
Thought I was breaking the bank.
But girls like you are just a dime a dozen.
Just a dime a dozen.
Movie quotes and lyrics still connecting us like constellations.
I wonder if I could ever separate myself from this.
And it'll be awhile, 'til I can breathe again.
Slip me into something warm.
My eyes still scream childhood

    Wow.
    Such a good song. :]
    Self-explanitory, though.

    General CommentThis song for the most part had been covered by everyone already, there are a few parts of it that id like to elaborate or point out:

    The first simply being the name of the song; You got a henna tattoo that said forever

    This signifies the constant and blatant hypocrisy he faced with said female.


    'Thought I was digging deep.
    Thought I was breaking the bank.
    But girls like you are just a dime a dozen.
    Just a dime a dozen.'
    This part signifies all the blood, sweat, tears, or simply effort that he put into the relationship, and how after all was said and done he saw that she wasn't any better than any of the other trashy girls he could have easily been with.

    'Movie quotes and lyrics still connecting us like constellations.
    I wonder if I could ever seperate myself from this.'
    This is, in my opinion, the very best quote on the entire album, as we all know every relationship will grab little things ie; movie quotes or lyrics that are significant to a couple, but the part about connecting us like constellations is refering to the dead of space between each star and how the words of quotes and lyrics don't mean shit, but the two stars that are pulled together by them are very important, he goes on to say that it will be hard to ever hear said quotes because of what they once meant to him.

    And finally 'my eyes still scream childhood' another amazing lyric, hes likening himself unto a child, hes an extremely innocent person and thats why he feels like hes been cut so deep.

    and like most others have said Emmure is a brilliant and excessively talented band, if you think they are good through headphones, well all I can say is you NEED to see them live!
