"Haunting" as written by and Terry Day....
We are but captives. We are deceased. We know that one day we will be free. (2x)

I've seen it again and again. We just have to close the door and we can't ever let them in. You got what you wanted. You got what you wanted so just go. And now you can't make a single noise. So what do you have to lose? You got what you wanted. Subject to the judgement of a fool. You got what you wanted so just go. Am I meant to follow? What is it to lead? The tone of a steady voice or the sound of a piercing scream?

The dirt under my fingernails tells of the grave I'm digging. And I know there's something out there that I have to see that's haunting me. (see that's haunting me)

We'll kill the parasite that lingers in our skin. The loss of appetite.
But you got what you wanted. (2x)

Am I meant to follow? What is it to lead? The tone of a steady voice or the sound of a piercing scream? The dirt under my fingernails tells of the grave I'm digging. And I know there's something out there that I have to see that's haunting me. (see that's haunting me)

They'll never know, they'll never know. I'm not exactly what they wanted. The man they thought I was began to die. We just have to close the door and we can't ever let them in. You got what you wanted, now you'll find somewhere to begin.

We are but captives. We are deceased. We know that one day we will be free. (2x)

The dirt under my fingernails tells of the grave I'm digging. And I know there's something out there that I have to see that's haunting me. (see that's haunting me (2x))

    General CommentDon't degrade HTD by comparing them to fake Atreyu.

    General Commenti agree with volcomss113.
    and honestly i dont think he sounds like atreyu when he sings "see that's haunting me"
    bc if he really did, you'd be saying that all of their songs that they singing in sounds like atreyu.

    General CommentWow. I think I would want to stab myself if HTD ever fell to the level of Atreyu. Stephen and Michael can actually sing. Brandon Saller is just some fat guy on a crappy band who just adds to the crappiness with crappy singing.

    General Commentthis song reeks of atreyu. but it sounds like what atreyu should be. does anyone else notice that when he says "see that's haunting me" he sounds EXACTLY like brandon saller?
