"The Promise Of Deceit" as written by and Oscar Lloyd Harrison Damon Minchella....
You come clean
Waves collide now
Defenseless numb arms
And no voice of reason

So how come you invited me too
You knew I wanted you
You glide above
So this night belongs to you
I know this isn't through
Are you dead to love

I see the bright lights
It's the month of July
It's violent here
Why have you left me
If only you could stay
And keep me in
It's violent here
Why did you run from me

Night devour me

    General Commentan ex whose taken away your light and the ways that you used to know. Never giving any part of herself back to you. No sex, no love, no emotion, no thoughts. Just a mask. Just an everyday ongoing pressure to please and be pleased.

    General CommentThis is how I interpret the song.

    The people you would do the most for, and hold dear to you, always leave you. And this is a song about realizing that (seeing the wings behind their back..they're going to fly away) Then comes the crushing sadness afterwards..the pressure. And everything seems to be going downhill. And you're angry at them for taking something from you..themselves.

    I don't mean a romantic relationship, but a friendship.

    General CommentThis song is so sad...

    Realizing that the one you thought was with you... is not... is such a tragic thing.

    "Burned all maps to reach you"
    "The setting sun over all I had"

    Wow :-(
