On the first day
I hoped that we would see this through
But now you're leaving
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
See, you're not listening
I'm clearly just not getting through
So if you're leaving
I won't stand in front of you

Tell me there's something in this web we weave
Can't you say you know this chapter's closed after all

Would you come back
If I said all of the right things
Would you come back
If I didn't ever need anything
Oh baby, tell me anything I have to do
When you read this
I hope you know these words are meant for you

Tell me there's something in this web we weave
Can't you see now I know you can't be everyone's friend

Tell me anything begging, pleading
Take back what you said
Wish all this was pretend, but now I know
You can't be everyone's friend all the time

On the first day
I hoped that you would see the truth
But if you're leaving
I won't stand in front of you again
No no no..

    General Comment"'Webs' is just your classic love song; It's a song for anybody who has ever had somebody who has meant a lot to them and opened their mind to something and they'll never forget. I love old Motown and the Temptations' love songs because they make you feel good; they make you feel nostalgic and take you back to that place where you felt comfortable and at ease in your own skin. I want to take people to place, too."

    General CommentThe lyrics at the end of the first first instance of the chorus are "...this chapter's CLOSED..." not over. Also I believe its not "back inbreeding" but ",beg and pleading". Not 100% sure on that.

    General CommentI think it's "Tell me anything that can clearly take back what you said"

    back inbreeding? WTF? lol, do people think when they try to decipher thesr these lyrics? pretty sure Thomas ain't a hick.

    General CommentI own the album, the book says it's "tell me anything, begging pleading, take back what you said, wish all this was pretend but now I know"

    General CommentIn the unlikely Event that you think this album sucks, as you compare it to their other stuff

    you wonder, why is it so different? so you just look it up, on the Web, and you see that other people hate it too, but it still doesnt make sense, why did The Fall of Troy release an album so different then their other material? most people can understand and cope with the thought of a band wanting to release an album that they are pleased with.

    at this point in the album, Webs, you find all other the web, that this has been

    "A Game"

    all the lyrics are talking about you, the listener, but you know, things could be much worse
