"A paradox with flies" as written by Paul Burnette, John Henry, Kristopher Norris, Ryan Parrish and Michael Schleibaum....
These solemn words whispered in a haze
Could you even see me standing there?
All wrapped up in insecurities that
Won't stop spilling out all over me

And in your eyes I see so much more
Than that place you always go back to
You can pull yourself away from
That face that constantly haunts you

A graceful approach that you carry on
And carry yourself in such a way
That could never be recreated

And in your eyes I see so much more
Than that place you always go back to
You can pull yourself away from
That face that constantly haunts you

We're in too deep, go back to sleep
If this feels to synthetic then it's all be a dream
Calling on our contracts
Controlled contained under pressure

We're in too deep, go back to sleep
If this feels to synthetic then it's all be a dream

So fall forward into me and let it all pour out
You owe this to yourself and there's only one way out

In your eyes, I see so much more
Than that place you always go back to
You can pull yourself away from
That face that constantly haunts you

So rest your head and close your eyes
Just one more step till we're over the edge

    General Commenti think this song is about a certain someone is struggling and making some bad moves.

    the singer is telling that person that she is better than that.

    General CommentI think that the last part means their at the end of something or that their about to archive something they wanted. If I follow the point of view unseen gave us maybe he managed to change and that may be a new start for them or something like that

    General CommentTo me the singer is talking to anyone who clings to the past, no matter how good or bad it is. Telling them to release themselves from the insecurities and history they trap themselves in. To just relax and let go. And become what they really could be without all the baggage of the past.

    General Commentlol nobody left an opinion of what they thought the song meant lol pretty crazy so um i guess it's left to me...sorta... so yeah i think this song means that this girl the he loves had some struggles and stressed herself out too much and he's telling her that she is so much more than what she thinks of herself, she is capable of getting out of the problem that never seems to leave her. and he's saying that he's willing to fight this conflict together because he loves her and he'll never give up on her.

    General CommentMy ex introduced me to this song, and since then its been heart blistering, but in a good way. I think he means. He loves her and hates seeing her go back down the same path. what ever the struggle is, no matter the problem; he loves her no matter what. Maybe he doesnt know how to prove it, or doesnt know how to approach it. He loves her and would do anything for her. but i think " just one more step till were over the edge." means, if it keeps happening he will be done, and wont dwell in the past. There is only so much a person can take right?

    General CommentThis song is about someone I care about. She used to be an addict long before I met her but she still bares the scars from that period in her life. For her, "going back to that place" is when she still labels herself as an addict even though she has long since recovered. I see so much more than the recovering addict that she thinks she is. If she ever does come face to face with her past problems, she needs to know I will be by her side to show her that she is no longer that person.

    If your reading this; I love you.

    General CommentIdiots. Its not a love song. Dont be all emo about a girl you know you cant have and dedicate a depression song.

    all wrapped up
    in insecurities.

    the things in life that brought you down. your fears. things that make you lose control.

    and in your eyes i see so much more
    than that place you always go back to
    you can pull yourself away from
    that face that constantly haunts you

    Depression is like a hole. Its very difficult to get out and sometimes other people keep throwing you back there.


    we're in too deep
    go back to sleep
    if this feels too synthetic then it's all been a dream

    In too deep. Cant get out of the depression. Go back to sleep. Ignore it. Hide it. Synthetic. It feels fake. Often when you hide your hell from other people you become something else.

    calling on our contrasts
    controlled, contained, under pressure

    Contrasts. The way most people see life and the way the person suffering sees it is in contrast. Controlled contained under pressure. The person suffering is hiding it, controlling what he/she shows and contains the overflow of feelings that are being bottled up



    so fall forward into me
    and let it all pour out
    you owe this to yourself
    and there's only one way out

    fall forward on a sword. let the blood pour out. owing it to yourself means that after so much suffering you deserve rest and thats the only way out

    so rest your head
    and close your eyes
    just one more step
    'till we're over the edge.

    The last moments of breathing before crossing over to the other side.
    This song is a suicide song. There is no reference to a relationship of any kind. Its someone that is dead on the inside and all thats left is to die. The most beautiful suicide song ever
