"Detroit" as written by and Vanian Scabies....
Soft lies on your empty face
A life in you has gone away
Sympathies go round and round
A hand full helps it all go down

Day fades away
Can't stay awake
Alone in this empty place

There's no time
To she'd your fear
But don't expect
That I'll be here

[Chorus]
I wonder where you are
Locked on the inside
I wonder where your thoughts are
Out of the daylight
I wonder who you are
Fallen so far to be nowhere
Whatever made you think so
I wonder where you are

Dark eyes make you snap up straight
Red hands wash the sleep away
Sifting through the white on white
Underneath the failing light

They fade away
Can't stay away
Alone in this empty place

There's no time
To rest my eyes
Cause you'll be gone
Before I rise

[Chorus: x2]

It's hard to cope
Please let me go
To stop this rush overflow
The night has come
And now I'm home

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThis band is spectacular and their songs are really well written and have a really good feel about them. This song in particular is a good one. I feel like the song is about a ended relationship. The beginning is talking about how she isn't really the same person ("empty face") and her "soft lies" are just to maybe keep him happy. Followed by the "sympathies" that "go round and round" are the things people say to you when you break up. Like sorry or you'll find another, things of that nature. They make him feel a bit better but he feels alone either way. I'm not really sure about the next parts so if anyone else wants to take a stab be my guest.
