i was never going to fall
(i was never going to fall)
but the smile, the face has sealed my fate
(the smile, the face)
shes weird, an addict of it all
(she was an addict of it all)
lets wait for another taste!
(i have nothing left to give....)

the world, has turned, black and cold
and i , cant catch my breathe
you rehearsed your lines
with rhythmic details
they match, the pounding in my chest

(chorus)
the summer came and you left me with your words
the clever sounds from your mouth
that can make me feel so worthless
and you say, that i am not enough
and though my heart is breaking open
know that i will not be broken
(broken)

the person you claimed to be, is not who haunts me now
the careless liens behind those brown eyes
that you swore were true more times then i can count

(chorus)
the summer came and you left me with your words
the clever sounds from your mouth
that can make me feel so worthless
and you say, that i am not enough
but though my heart is breaking open
know that i will not be broken

i know these these words are weak and young
but broken as i come undone
and while i drown in these mistakes
you ego swells but i can tell
you know that your a fake.


(you cried and cried i'm your friend!)
just to save some face!
(you didnt want it to end!)
in just a week im replaced!
(you wanted me so listen to me but can you hear me now?!)
(your just a sickness and a cancer!)
the cancers your filthy mouth.....

    General Commentexcellent song. it has a pretty straightforward meaning. his girlfriend was just bringing him down and she broke up with him, but he doesn't let that affect him. "but though my heart is breaking open, know that i will not be broken." amazing!

    My OpinionThe whole EP is great. Unfortunately, there's only one criticism I have...I think I've heard just about 4 or 5 songs off the EP now, and all of them have had something to do with lying or lies lol. Poor guy was hurt, huh? Anyway, they're all still really great songs, (some better than others of course), but I wish they weren't all so similar lyrically sometimes.

    General CommentI love the EP too. Takes them back to their old sound, with hints of their new stuff in there. It was very good. This song reminds me of Walls, but the lyrics aren't as deep or inspiring. That is the only thing about the EP, like jonneh said, lyrically it is not their best. I hope their new album, In Shallow Seas We Sail, is a little more diverse. But anyways this song rocks.

    General CommentThe whole EP is about either breaking up or being broken up with. Bands usually do this kind of stuff if they have a group of songs that aren't enough for an album, but are all very similar. For another example, look at The Classic Crime's "Seattle Sessions".

    Also, I've noticed that the screaming parts in the lyrics above seem to be off. For example, the last lines of the intro part sound more like this:

    So sweet, an addict of it all
    (I was an addict of it all)
    I was blind for another taste
    (I have nothing left to give, these veins are dry, drained drip by drip)

    The ending is also pretty off from what I hear. This is more what it sounds like to me:


    (You cried in front of your friends)
    Just to save some face
    (You didn't want it to end)
    In just a week I'm replaced
    (You wouldn't listen, listen to me)
    But can you hear me now
    (You're just a sickness and the cancer)
    the cancer is your filthy mouth

    General CommentI agree with docalien about the lyrics of this song and I think the lyrics on this ep are pretty amazing still even if they arent their best.
