"A Favor House Atlantic (Demo)" as written by and Travis Stever Claudio Sanchez....
Your eyes tell the stories of a day you wish you could
Recall the moments that once have
Retract the footsteps that brought us to this favor
I wouldn’t ask this of you

Good eye sniper
I’ll shoot you run

The words you scribbled on the walls
The loss of friends, you didn’t have
I’ll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out
For them all to know our victory song

Run quick they’re behind us
Didn’t think we’d ever make it
This close to safety in one piece
You ought to kill me
Now, I can sense you're angry
Let's leave as friends and bid farewell

Nice try, liar
Now I'll shoot, you run

The words you scribbled on the walls
The loss of friends, you didn’t have
I’ll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out
For them all to know our victory song

Bye, bye beautiful
Don’t bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they’re calling all cars
Face step, step down,
Face step, step down

Bye, bye beautiful
Don’t bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they’re calling all cars
Face step, step down,
Face step, step down

The words, we brought it up before
The let of blood, we fall short
You'll just be the press of wings
Of my life send please sing the words of my victory song

Bye, bye beautiful
Don’t bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they’re calling all cars
Face step, step down,
Face step, step down

Bye, bye beautiful
Don’t bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they’re calling all cars
Face step, step down,
Face step, step down

    My OpinionI like this version much better than the original. The words seem more moving to me, or something along those lines.

    General CommentI have to disagree with the posted lyrics. After listening to the song a bunch of times trying to figure out the words, I think the last verse goes

    "In the words we've said it all before
    In the lack of blood we fall short.
    Could this be the press of that that weighs
    on my life's end, please sing, the words to my once dear victory song."

    Anyway, the meaning of the lyrics is much clearer in this version. Claudio and Al's sniper duel over Newo is a bit more obvious this time, so you might not have to read the story to get the meaning.
