OH

So where's the one you you've been speaking of?
is he hiding somewhere,
or just inside your head

you built this prison by yourself
i can see you're falling in front of me
and don't make it so easy
i can see you're not getting anywhere
so pretend this was never yours

You suffer, you suffer
just like i told
don't, dont tell me
don't, dont tell me
where we go from here
waiting for your final answer
just give it up, just letting know

you built this prison by yourself
i can see you're falling in front of me
don't make it so easy
i can see you're not getting anywhere
so pretend this was never yours

i can see you are falling in front of me
don't make it easy

you built this prison by yourself
dug this grave with your own hands
pretend this was never yours
i love the way you lose yourself
makes it easy to forget you
pretend this was never yours


i can see you're falling in front of me
and don't make it so easy
i can see you're not getting anywhere
so pretend this was never yours

i can see you're falling in front of me
and don't make it so easy
i can see you're not getting anywhere
so pretend this was never yours

and you're not getting anywhere with me...
and you're not getting anywhere with me...

    Oh!

    So where's the one you've been speaking of?
    Is he hiding somewhere?
    Or just inside your head.

    You built this prison by yourself.

    I can see, you're falling in front of me,
    and don't make it so easy.
    I can see, you're not getting anywhere.
    so pretend this was never.... Yours!

    You suffer, you suffer.
    Just like I saw.
    Don't tell me, don't tell me.
    Where we go from here.

    Waiting for your final answer.
    Just give it up.
    Just letting know..

    You built this prison by yourself.

    I can see, you're falling in front of me,
    and don't make it so easy.
    I can see, you're not getting anywhere.
    so pretend this was never yours.

    I can see, you're falling in front of me,
    and you're making it easy!

    You built this prison by yourself,
    Dug this grave with your own hands.
    Pretend this was never yours.

    I love it when you lose yourself,
    It makes it easy to forget you.
    Pretend this was never yours.

    I can see, you're falling in front of me,
    and don't make it so easy.
    I can see, you're not getting anywhere.
    so pretend this was never yours.

    I can see, you're falling in front of me,
    and you're making it easy!

    And you're not getting anywhere.
    And you're not getting anywhere with me.

    ----------------------------------------

    So to me this song is basically about how a girl cheated on him (whoever the song is about.)
    He knows that she has been cheating on him, and he wants nothing from her anymore.
    She tries to talk her way out of it (maybe she had done it before), but this time he wasn't buying any of it.
    Through all of her attempts to make it right she just dug her grave deeper and deeper.
    That just pissed her off, and from her tantrums the guy found it easier and easier to let go of her.

    "You're not getting anywhere with me." Sums it all up.

    General CommentThis is a great song.

    I agree with AdamLyon. This song is definetly about cheating and how she is just making it worse for herself with all the lies she tells him; eventually making him fall out of love with her.

    General CommentYah I thought it was about a girl at first too, but when I really read through the lyrics I thought something different. Basically, it sounds like it's about somebody who tries to take all the problems of his life but can't do it all. The singer is telling him that he warned the guy that he can't do it all by himself and he needs God in his life to give his problems to. Just a guess

    My OpinionIn my opinion, this whole album was about the certain female the lyrics seem to portray in all of the album's songs. If you actually paid close attention to Blessthefall's parody of "The Hangover", and "Dude, Where's my car", you'd realize that all of these comments you're leaving about these lyrics are about 'breakups' then it'll finally click.

    In the video, "Hey Baby Here's That Movie You Wanted", you hear the phone ring and then comes the; "Hey Beau, you are a fucking liar, you are worthless. I never want to talk to you, or speak to you again, so go fuck yourself..Fuck you." Now, continue watching the parody, and you'll figure it out.

    After all of the confusion and mayhem, Beau catches his ex getting pretty heated up with some fat guy in a moose outfit.
    You'll also realize that the girl was pissed off because she thought Beau cheated, when in reality, beau and Eric switched phones, Eric got busy with some old lady and Beau's ex heard it, thinking it was him, so she went and screwed around with that fatty moose character.

    NOTE: I'm not saying this is the REAL background to this album, but hey, it's an effort.
