Hard rain pours down
on the concrete
Seeps in deep below

Cold screams of the city
are heard through the walls
Of every home

Most seek for a deeper meaning
Beyond their daily woes
Most see nothing more than
Black clouds it's all that they know

We become our scars
If we let them
But all that we truly need
Is out there for the taken

We scream every word
It's brought us together
Every lasting scar
Reminds us how we got here
We scream every word
It's brought us together
Every lasting scar
Shows what it's taken to be who
we are

Some dwell into emptiness
The hurt they claim is real
Been let down
Now it's meaningless
They find ways to conceal

Never to be seen again
Until it's all too late
And if we don't learn from it all
We'll repeat the same mistakes

We become our scars
If we let them
But all that we truly need
Is out there for the taken

Every lasting scar
Shows us what it's taken to be
who we are

We scream every word
It's brought us together
Every lasting scar
Reminds us how we got here
We scream every word
It's brought us together
Every lasting scar
Shows what it's taken to be who
we are

We scream every word
It's brought us together
Every lasting scar
Shows us what it's taken to be
who we are

    General Commentlyrics from the booklet:

    Hard rain pours down
    on the concrete
    Seeps in deep below

    Cold screams of the city
    are heard through the walls
    Of every home

    Most seek for a deeper meaning
    Beyond their daily woes
    Most see nothing more than
    Black clouds it's all that they know

    We become our scars
    If we let them
    But all that we truly need
    Is out there for the taken

    We scream every word
    It's brought us together
    Every lasting scar
    Reminds us how we got here
    We scream every word
    It's brought us together
    Every lasting scar
    Shows what it's taken to be who
    we are

    Some dwell into emptiness
    The hurt they claim is real
    Been let down
    Now it's meaningless
    They find ways to conceal

    Never to be seen again
    Until it's all too late
    And if we don't learn from it all
    We'll repeat the same mistakes

    We become our scars
    If we let them
    But all that we truly need
    Is out there for the taken

    Every lasting scar
    Shows us what it's taken to be
    who we are

    We scream every word
    It's brought us together
    Every lasting scar
    Reminds us how we got here
    We scream every word
    It's brought us together
    Every lasting scar
    Shows what it's taken to be who
    we are

    We scream every word
    It's brought us together
    Every lasting scar
    Shows us what it's taken to be
    who we are

    General CommentWhen Jamey talks about this song on the DVD material that was included in the special edition of this album, he calls it a "hardcore upbeat anthem". He also says the song was inspired by a show that was called "probably the single biggest hardcore show of all time". It shows his feeling about hardcore.

    General Comment"most seek for a deeper meaning beyond their daily woes most see nothing more than black clouds its all that they know" looking deeper into things rather than just taking them for what they are on the surface reading between the lines. its about rising above what brings us down because "if we dont learn from it all we'll repeat the same mistakes" and about how some use what brings them down as an excuse to stay down "but all that we truly need is out there for the taking".
