I could have been
The man you see in front of you all
But he has slipped away
To put this pride into a place of hiding
...from everyone now

I suffer through
And push away anyone in love with me
I wish I could have
The pretty things you see in me
...underneath

I've sent away
Any feeling born to me that day
I wish I could have
The pretty things inside of you undisturbed
...by anything now

    General CommentIt's actually,
    "I wish I could have
    The pretty things inside of you, undisturbed
    ...by anything"

    General CommentI am in love with this song. Billy has something about him... His vocal range is pretty nice. He can be very exciting at times and he can be very serious at other times, and I think this is the perfect example of that.

    General CommentI like this song too. . . But what I REALLY love about it is the drumming. It is just soooooo perfect. To me it really sounds just like tool. Rock on Ashes Divide!!!!!
