"Everybody Is Someone Else's Secret" as written by Ryan O'connor, Seth James Johnson and Daniel James Stevens....
Everybody is someone else's secret
I'll do my best to hide it
If you can promise to keep it

Young lady looked in a cracked mirror
You look the same
But you must be somebody else
We look at shame like a game

The ground is coming fast before us now
We'll hold our breaths until they figure out
A story we can spin
To keep on counting sins
And never let our lovers hold us down

She said she knows a traitor
Before he even knows himself
A life filled with bad actors
Were just distorted versions of ourselves

Young lady looked in a cracked mirror
But you must be somebody else
We look at shame like a game

The ground is coming fast before us now
We'll hold our breaths until they figure out
A story we can spin
To keep on counting sins
And never let our lovers hold us down (x2)

Now without the spark of hope
Would you ever let her tell you
Love is nothing but a hoax?
You can set it up and watch her fall
All your friends, they will tell you
She's the devil with a soul (x2)

The ground is coming fast before us now
We'll hold our breaths until they figure out
A story we can spin
To keep on counting sins
And never let our lovers hold us down (x2)

Now without the spark of hope

    General Commenti think hes saying in the second part, before the chorus is

    young lady looked in a cracked mirror

    and then we look at shame as a game.

    General CommentIt's not "story versions of ourselves", it's "assorted versions"

    General Commenti think its actually:

    "a love filled with bad actors we're just distorted versions of ourselves"

    "love" could possibly be "life"



    and i think the chorus is:

    "The ground is coming faster for us now
    We'll hold our breaths until we figure out
    A story we can spin to keep on counting sins
    And never let our lovers hold us down"

    i think "ground" might possibly be "bride"


    and i'm pretty sure it's "she's the devil at the soul"

    General Commenti think this song is definitely about cheating, circa_survive_green. both the girl and boy involved are cheating on their significant others.

    when he says "we look at shame like a game", he's admitting that they both know that what they're doing is wrong, but it's almost like they want to keep going until they get caught.

    also, the lines "we'll hold our breaths until they figure out a story we can spin to keep on counting sins" seems to further indicate that they don't really care if they get caught or not, because they'll just lie about it and keep on cheating. neither of them plan on stopping. i mean, even their friends have told them that this is a bad, bad idea... and the girl is just horrible, when she says she "knows a traitor before he even knows himself", what she's basically saying is that she can get any guy she wants, even if he's taken, because she can make anyone fall into temptation.

    i like this song alright, but it reminds me of something that happened to me, so it makes me really fucking angry.
