"I Hate Buffering" as written by and Andrew Trick Daniel Williams....
Confidence blurred by arrogance,
And the self worship continues,
Who is an artist?

You can't decide for yourself,
Straight lines, I see straight lines,
But they control sloppily, stupidly.

Keep that golden, celebrity character to your own conscience
Take a breath and rest your jaw,
A Vertebrae with no spine.

Our entertainment: A mockery
With every laugh and every joke the actor's lungs become more dense with damnation.
Don't mistake my intentions for superiority, let's make that clear.
This isn't right and the worst part is were not pretending.
Don't memorize these names
Eternally.

This world will run dry and well watch the clock,
Well watch what we'll become.
Don't memorize these names,
Eternally.

Take a breath and rest your jaw

    General Commentin a recent review [with shockhound, i believe] mike was talking about how so many bands are making music solely for the purpose of meeting girls and such, and how his main focus when composing their songs is not at all for that type of attention, and i think this song definitely touches on that aspect.

    its a pretty straightforward song: people have perverted the meaning of being an artist and are using their 'celebrity character' for something more than just relaying their ideas to an audience. its become somewhat of a joke in some aspects, and for those who are 'not pretending' its difficult to be taken seriously like bands such as tdwp deserve to be. 'don't memorize these names' is clearly a nod to the fact that they want their music and their message to be the focus, rather than themselves.

    this is what i've gotten out of it at least; maybe you guys have some different opinions.

    musically, this song is incredible, beautifully intricate and brings the brutality of the bands talent that we all know and love.

    General Comment@ Sirens... That's awesome that you can appreciate their message despite differences in faith or spirituality.

    But I just wanted to say that I can guarantee that TDWP are not religious either.

    In fact, if you're familiar with their previous albums, you would discover they are anti-religion.

    As I am.

    I think I can speak for them as we both believe that being religious is not the point of putting all our faith, hope and love in the only consistent thing in existence... God.

    It sucks, but a lot of us who really pursue to love God in a real way, have to segregate ourselves from what you might know as a 'christian.' Especially the 'christians' you see on TV who offer miracles for money... Don't forget about the very name of this band... The Devil Wears Prada. Who do you think they are talking about... Satan himself? Or perhaps the liars and thieves dressed in Armani and Prada we see on TV proclaiming God's blessings in return for our money?

    A lot of us describe true christianity as not a religion, but a true, real and loving relationship with God.

    Anyways... I hope you find what you're looking for.

    With love.

    Song MeaningI believe this song is about how Artists are only making music to meet girls, as it was said before, and for fame and such. It's really sad.
    They want groupies, and not to express their art form or spread words of meaning.
    This is why I love Prada. ;]
    Originality. Sort of reminds me of Mindless Self Indulgence's "Mark David Chapman".

    General Comment@tylon777 I do believe the band is full Christian, as it says in wikipedia, but what you are saying is quite true, especially that last sentence. It also states in wiki that the band got their name from a book being about anti-materialism, which is pretty much the subject in this and most of their other songs.

    General CommentI think he says
    " with every love and every choke become damnation"
    Or however you spell that,
    Doesn't make sence though lol
    And again, I think he says " jaw" instead of "tongue"
    I've been trying to figure this one out

    General CommentStraight from the booklet:

    Confidence blurred by arrogance
    And the self-worship continues
    Who is an artist?
    You can't decide for yourself
    Straight lines, I see straight lines,
    But they control sloppily, studpidly
    Keep that golden, celebrity character to your own conscience
    Take a breath and rest your jaw
    A vertebrae with no spine
    Our entertainment: a mockery

    General CommentBasically, i think it says that we should be ashamed of wat the artists of today are promoting and that everybody listens to it and conforms to it... And that they keep blabbing on oh cool drugs sex and not on good dense deep stuff *take a break and rest ur jaw a vertabrae with no spine* that thier words are uselees - and their messages lead to hell (third paragraph) they saying their mesage is meant to be spread as good and wholesome and not to become popular
