Walk into flames that you start with yourselves
And get help while you can to pull meat from bones
Burn down your home
Create a diversion to buy yourself time
To give thanks to the ones who are all alone
You're all alone
These hives
They break into your skin like a thief
They rob you of life while you sleep
So you cut and you cut til there's nothing left

This paper posed as photographs
This promise snapped with time elapsed
You think you do
But you don't know me at all

If you don't believe in God, you will now
I've got hooks and a chain that will fit you well
So save your air
I've locked your personal things in a box
And if you try to scream I won't ever tell
I won't ever tell
These hives
They break into your skin like a

Last chance to find what we believe
I hope you save those you've deceived
You think you do
But you don't know me at all

You can't hold your breath forever

Know me at all

If you don't believe
Trust me, you will

    General CommentWell, im not really sure what the song is about. this is actually the first time ive listen to sullivan and so far i think rhe're great.

    Well this line is pretty bvious

    You think you do
    But you don't know me at all
    Last chance to find what we believe


    Anyways, in my opinion, i dont know what the song is really about, well i think that on the beginning, this person was trying to help this other person but the person was somehow being changed or something to turn into something else [They rob you of life while you sleep]...

    Well, im not really sure...i dont know the band at all besides from what ive heard from them today...hmmm....

    General CommentTo me this song is an argument between 2 people, the singer, and another person who has problems such as depressed and doesnt know god, etc.

    If you look at the lyrics a little closer its more like a conversation. the singer are the verses and the other guy (the one with problems) is the chorus.

    Example:
    Verse 1-

    "Walk into flames that YOU start with yourselves
    And get help while YOU can
    To pull me from those
    Burnt down YOUR home
    Great, a diversion to buy YOURSELF time
    To give thanks to the ones who are all alone
    YOUR're all alone
    These hives
    They break into YOUR skin like a thief
    They rob YOU of life while you sleep
    So you cut and YOU cut til there's nothing left"

    the singer is describing the other guys life above.

    Chorus-

    "This paper posed as photographs
    This promise snapped with time elapsed
    You think you do
    But you don't know ME at all"

    This is the other guys responce. and this i found goes on durring the song.

    So if your reading my comment, re-read the lyrics as if it were 2 people talking.

    General CommentSome minor corrections... I think... This is just what I'm hearing. And holy crap, I was so young and innocent when I made that last comment; time flies...
