It merely took a year for your pledge to disappear.
Farewell friend, our ties no longer mend.
This tale has come to an end.
It wasn't meant to last.
You came and left so fast.
Your promises are part of the past.
You said we'd speak again, but that moment never came.
Silence is a close cousin of shame.
A man of glass carries the flame.
Burn.
May the desert bring you comfort.
Burn.
Enjoy your precious game of cowboys and Indians.
I hope it's what you envisioned.
Black eyes and secret trips slowly revealed your true nature.
I should have known better.
A new dawn has come.
The good times we had turned to bitter souvenirs.
The rest of us will persevere.
It wasn't meant to last.
You came and left so fast.
Your promises are part of the past.
Carry on.
We've grown stronger with your sudden departure.
More determined than ever, we'll carry on.
We've grown stronger with your sudden departure.
Dedicated, we carry on.

    General CommentI can't beleive not one person has commented this.
    It's one of their best songs on the album.
    I really wish they played this live...

    Song MeaningIf I had to guess, I would say this song is about the departure of former guitarist Al Glassman. He joined Despised Icon in 2006 or 2007 and quit in 2008 to join Job for a Cowboy. I haven't read or heard anything about the split, but the lyrical references support my theory.

    "It merely took a year for your pledge to disappear."
    -referring to his brief membership with Despised Icon

    "May the desert bring you comfort."
    -Job for a Cowboy is from Arizona

    "Enjoy your precious game of cowboys and Indians."
    -Clearly, a reference to Job for a Cowboy.

    Like I said, purely speculation....But yeah...great song, great album! I was fucking thrilled to hear Despised Icon step it up and go completely balls to the wall!
