I will just keep waiting
You will just keep waiting
(Change for the worst.)
Obsession. Obsessive. Obsessed. Abscessed.
Rip out my fucking eyes. I can't watch you grow into this. Their eyes left wide...
night goggles instead of sleep
(Change for the best)
Life life... you have all helped me break from this...
The few times relaxation steps in bringing me a peaceful place
It's a must these days, for the colors are fading
Enclosed in a space of soothing sounds. Waking in my own movie...
The fly by with no remembrance. Constant rushing...
The waves have pushed me to where I need to be
Sunlight drenched on my skin...
Only the sounds of what my mind wants to hear. Block out the rush hour...
Block out the tired herds...
On the shaded side it's starting to affect the process of your reading eye
An aggressive need for a hostile voice is creeping away...
This block happens every year...
And like I said before the color keeps fading
I couldn't trade this for anything in the world...
And all of you are the reason. It's been a while since we've
Written each other and hopefully this will comfort you
Cause like most of my kind, I won't take it all for granted.

I will just keep waiting... You will just keep waiting.

    General Comment"Foam Born: the idea of being born again in many different forms (gas, liquids, and solids).

    This song is about growing old and realizing the most important things in your life. Even though the world gives you many ups and downs, you have to keep waiting to find what truly makes you happy. I use some imagery such as waves pushing me to an isolated island where it’s just me and my thoughts (the environment I tried to mentally be in when writing this record).

    This song also speaks of the horrible writers block I get every time we write a new record… the older I get, the happier and more peaceful I seem to be (the idea I spoke about before) … and the more peaceful I become the harder it is for me to write about negative aspects of life (something I’ve always written about in the past).

    The end of this song is basically saying thanks to all of those who enjoy the music and lyrics we create with each record. A lot of bands take their lives for granted and forget that they are here because of their fans. Thank you."

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about waiting for an old good friend (who has changed for the worst) to change back the way they were, or to at least turn into someone acceptable. "Obsession. Obsessive. Obsessed. Abscessed." explains what the person is turning into, which leads Tommy to "Rip out my fucking eyes. I can't watch you grow into this.", which is self explanatory, he can't watch his good friend turn into something they're not.

    "It's a must these days, for the colors are fading", means like, now-a-days it seems like everyone is changing for the worst (colors are fading).

    "I'll just keep waiting." Tommy just waiting for the friend to change for the better.

    Obviously, this is MY interpretation, since Tommy has already explained what the true meaning is.

    Nice to know, because this is amazing and a band taking the time to say that is as well. :]

    General Commenti believe that the end of this song includes me directly because I have written to them on myspace several times.They actually responded to me but the end of a conversation is really the end lol

    I just asked for help...I know they understand.

    We understand.
