(Take this)
There's always a flaw
(Take this)
A flaw that gets in
(Take this)
There's always a crack
(Shadow)

(Untold)
The hoax that harms
(The hoax)
That harms the spirit
(The first)
One to arrive
(The last)
To confess

(They've got)
Their arms outstretched
(They've got)
Their front row tickets
(They're the)
First to arrive
For the trial
For the raid

(We run)
We run for first
Off the road and off the record
(We run)
We run for first
But the first come in second

When we spit out
The names
Of those
We betrayed

When we spit out
The names
Of those
We betrayed

When we spit out
The names
Of those
We betrayed

When we spit out
The names
Of those
We betrayed

    General CommentLyrics are taken from the album booklet, but some wording may be different, it's hard to make out some of the lyrics, especially the screamed ones.

    General CommentFor those that don't know, the two vocalists are from Circle takes the square. I was listening to the newest 65daysofstatic album for the first time not to long ago. Got to the final track and was caught be surprise, you wouldn't really expect bands of such different genres coming together like this, unexpected but definitely welcomed. This is an excellent song, probably in my top 3 or 5 favourite 65daysofstatic songs.

    General CommentPretty sure when he's saying "Take this" he's actually saying "Confess"

    General CommentYou had the lyrics nearly right, and yeah you're right when you say they are in the album sleeve but all mixed up. Here is what they actually sing:

    ---

    Confess!
    Always a flaw
    Confess!
    A flaw that gets in
    Confess!
    Always a crack
    Shadow!

    Untold!
    The hoax that harms
    The hoax!
    That harms the spirit
    The first!
    One to arrive
    The last!
    To confess

    They've got!
    Their arms outstretched
    They've got!
    Their front row tickets
    They're the!
    First to arrive
    For the trial
    For the raid

    We run!
    We run for first
    Off the road and off the record
    We run!
    We run for first
    But the first come in second

    When we spit out
    The names
    Of those
    We betrayed... [repeats]

    There are also lines printed throughout the song which although appear to seem like they should be present, aren't. These include:

    (The shadow at the back of the family photographs)

    The pitch perfect child with her arms outstretched: daughter of the music teacher and the blonde heiress.
    The first to come and last to confess
    standing at the back in her party dress.

    --

    It's a really clever song, to be honest, and is cleverly placed at the end to catch you out. May they forever grace the post-rock scene with their grandeur.

    General CommentAn amazing song. Seems to be about someone who is forced to give up the names of those he worked with against the government. Reminds me of NIN's Year Zero.

    The lyrics in this song are... different from anything I've ever heard. Especially towards the end - it's like they tried to conserve the truth in the lyrics, by not trying to cover it's faults.
