"Bright Mouths" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper Alexander P Kane....
I see you in my head at night
Your eyes are vacant
And your mouth is bright
And all you say are things I don't want to hear
So I smash my hands against my broken ears

We are the thoughts that you were warned about
We are the shadows in your basement
When you say doomsday we say everything's alright
But it's all the same

Get yourself a number
Oh we've been watching you sleep
We know your tricks
We know all your bad habits
We know your secrets
We know where your loss
We sneak into your closet and have dinner with the skeletons

All along you've been asking what's wrong with me
All along you've been asking what's wrong with me
All along you've been living your predicament
Saying you were innocent but what's that got to do with us

We are the cracks in all you dream about
We are the noises in your attic
We are the people you were warned about
We are the monsters in your closet

Now despite your hopes you're just like us
Yeah, you're just like us
Despite your prayers you're broke like us
Yeah, you're broke like us

We watch you when you're asleep
We hear as you grind your teeth
We're always wearing smiles but they're never what they seem
You run when you're awake but they still kill ya when you dream

    General Commentthank you michieldean for restoring my sanity...i never knew it was possible to butcher a song so much.

    but anyway, i think this song has something to do with big brother and ben cooper's robophobia, so our technology is watching us and knows everything we do, and that in regards relates to someone knowing everything about us and using our secrets against us to eventually destroy us and be "broke" like them.

    General CommentThe last 2 lines there are wrong, they should be:
    1) "Their always wearing smiles, but their never what they seem"
    2) "You can run when your awake but they'll still kill you when you dream"
    and im pretty sure in those last two lines they are saying that you gotta watch who you trust, because a lot of people out there are fake (1). And if they have the chance they'll stab you in the back if its you or them on the line (2)

    General CommentThe first line doesn't make sense "I see you in my head and eye"
    I'm pretty sure it's "I see you in my head at night"

    General CommentAlso,
    Now it's fine your hopes you're just like us
    Yeah, you're just like us
    It's fine your prayers you're broke like us
    Yeah, you're broke like us

    Should be:
    Now, despite your hopes you're just like us
    Yeah, you're just like us
    Despite your prayers you're broke like us
    Yeah, you're broke like us

    General CommentOne more, haha.

    We're always waiting smells but they're never what they seem
    You run when you're awake but they still kill ya when you dream

    IS:
    "They're always wearing smiles, but they're never what they seem.
    You can run when you're awake but they'll still kill you when you dream."
