I come before you wake
Watching while I wait
There's only one thing left for me to say,
"Tomorrow never come home
Gotta let go all that you know
You'll never make it out alive unless you go."

No more warning signs
No more shallow lies
I'll dream of you from Hell, my love good bye

I'm fetching all of the rope
Gonna tie you onto his post
You'll never make it out alive and now you know

When you start to move
I start to cross the room
Give you one last kiss before we die

But when I turn to come near
I see myself standing in the mirror
The hollow eyes
the blood I cry
It's all so clear

Now I know that hell has been here
Inside my heart that's swallowed by fear
I fall onto the floor to pray I disappear

    General CommentI really like the tempo changes in this song.
    I think chris talks about killing someone. He takes her in her sleep, and ties her up. I think its his ex girlfriend who didn't stand by him through sound the alarm era because of the way he was, and chris hates her for that.

    General CommentThis album seems very conceptual to me, showing the arc of a relationship failing. That's putting it lightly, given the feel of the last half of the album, but that's essentially it. I'll need to give the album a few more listens before I can get things worked out for sure.

    General Commentwell the title track is like how things would have turned out if chris continued being so depressed and bitter he'd be under the boards and he'd be dead and he would not rise. The tracks that follow it go to the storyline of the album and turning over in my tomb is how it DOES actually turns out, chris decides to make an effort and make things right.
