Once I read your name
And I heard your stories
Then I just couldn't get enough
Now where'd you go
Cause i've been waiting
To see you right before my eyes

They look so good in the pictures
How come they're not around?
They still live
They're way up high
Where they've been dying out to the world

So now i cross my arms
And i keep my eyes closed
Cause I can barely stand to watch
Now that you're gone
And i have disappointments
Like i could never get enough

They look so good in the pictures
How come they're not around?
They still live
They're way up high
Where they've been dying out
Yeah but they look so good in your pictures
How come they're not around?
They still live
They're way up high
Where they've been dying out to the world

And i will wash my hands
Of all your cheap imitations
As a payment
For all the pain you've given me

They look so good in the pictures
How come they're not around?
They still live
They're way up high
Where they've been dying out
Yeah but they look so good in your pictures
How come they're not around?
They still live
They're way up high
Where they've been dying out to the world

    General CommentFirst comment. Really great song...

    I think its about how the only memories we have are through pictures. As Kenny says "They Look so good in the pictures" How come there not around? Friends come and go and well yeah.

    General Commentit also seems like memories and the past are sweet, but they don't mask how miserable the present is. love the line

    General CommentI think it's about Christ and someone's battle with religion.

    "Once I read your name
    And I heard your stories
    Then I just couldn't get enough
    Now where'd you go
    Cause i've been waiting
    To see you right before my eyes."

    "Yeah but they look so good in your pictures
    How come they're not around?
    They still live
    They're way up high
    Where they've been dying out to the world."

    General CommentI asked Kenny Vasoli personally what it meant and he said it was all about the bands that never make it. Like they look so good in the pictures, how come they never made it? How come they never did anything? Deep stuff.
