"Passenger" as written by and Misha Mansoor Matthew Halpern....
As we grow
With rusty nails in our coffins
Among potential of diamonds and pearls
The sea of blood fills the crevice between
Our lifeless body and the whispers for what we reach

Behold as the weather floods the red
Time commands of us to meet again,
in silence awakening to a higher light

If we sever the distance between one another and cross out the fear we learn
All are one and nothing's keeping the love in our souls from burning infinitely


Now what have we become?
An entity of survival.
Rotting flesh of the fallen stains our ego.
Now the moment is at hand to rise above what was once so prevalent.
Folding time within the mortal boundaries lived upon.
Moving onward. We will never fade.
Fall into another dead end. Will it end the same?
Lines are drawn for the rest of the story.

If we sever the distance between one another, and cross out the fear we learn,
all are one and nothing is keeping the love in our souls from bursting infinitely.

This life is one that we must live.
The peace once embraced from so long ago sleeps deep within our mind.
Stay forever or be erased from the harmonic physical state of being existing in this dimension.
Lies are covered, but only for the moment.
The blood of the weak will carve the way for the innocent.
The blood of the weak will carve the way for the innocent.

    General CommentHOLY SHIT! Spencer's vocals skyrocket in this song, such golden singing parts!

    I interpret this song to be about how the rich and the poor shouldn't be seperated because once we're dead it doesn't matter.

    General CommentPeriphery's lyrics piss me off sometimes. Very often, their lyrics are just very cryptic without any real meaning to them.
