"With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear" as written by and Jesse Lawson Jack Fowler....
True friends lie underneath,
These witty words I don't believe
I can't believe a damn thing they say, anymore
Lie, liar you'll pay for your sins
Now, liar I know all the places you've been

Forgiveness this taste all but poisons my mouth
I scream but nothing, nothing will come out
You've gone too far

So tell me how does it feel,
How does it feel to be like you?
I think your mouth should be quiet
'Cause it never tells the truth
So tell me, so tell me why,
Why does it have to be this way?
Why can't things ever change?

Falling over, and over again
Oh, why does it have to be this way?
From the place I was, to the place I am, to the place I want to be
For the mountains I've been climbing over and under and over
From the place that I was to the man I've become
I'll be there to see the tower you'll fall from
No this kingdom isn't quite what it may seem
You're an illusion, you'll never be king

So tell me how does it feel,
How does it feel to be like you?
I think your mouth should be quiet
'Cause it never tells the truth
So tell me, so tell me why,
Why does it have to be this way?
Why can't things ever change?

Sometimes things are better left unsaid
But this time you'll get what you give (I can't believe a damn thing they say anymore)

Come down, come down from your tower
Come down, come down from your tower
I know that for all my life, for all my strength
There is only one above who can judge me
All I am is yours, all I am is yours, I am yours

    General CommentThe acoustic version is the best, ever. When he sings the screaming part<3 eargasm. Seriously, he has the most amazing voice I've heard in awhile. SO amazing, it makes it even better that it's his voice ¬ edited by some studio. My boyfriend makes fun of his voice because it's 'so high pitched'. No, it's absolutely beautiful.

    My OpinionPersonally, I like the original better than the acoustic because it is more extended, of course. His tone of voice is much different, I think he expresses himself much more. Rawrrrrrr. The lyrics just aren't the same without the sound.
    Religion is often brought about when I read different interpretations. I can vividly see it that way, as well.
    "Liar, you'll pay for your sins" speaks for itself. He seeks revenge or karma is out to reap his betrayer.
    "There is one above who can judge me" takes me back to "true friends lie underneath", they don't condone him seeking revenge on this human being whom did him wrong? They judge him for it & have also done him wrong by abandoning him? Betrayed him by sleeping with this individual? Maybe. I hear "there is only one above who can judge me" because "all I am is yours".
    Oh, so many different ways.. All and all, every one is different and will interpret it in various ways! It's not fun if it isn't that way. Let your brain fumble with it and make it yours! That's clearly what I've done considering it is just too perfectly relatable. This song really clutches my <3!

    My OpinionI honestly feel like this song has feeling. The lyrics go along with what he's trying to say. Its about someone lying constantly how they can never tell the truth. and why it has to be that why it couldn't it change. Why it has to be that way. He's basically saying if you cant stop lying then be quiet.
    But, this song is amazing the lyrics the instruments the way they did it was perfect. I love Sleeping With Sirens There a amazing band, very talented. :)

    General CommentI like the acoustic version better. I think his vocals are a lot more touching. Most of Kellin Quinn's acoustic songs are more deep than the originals, just because of the way he sings them. But, either way, Kellin is an amazing singer and both his acoustic and original songs are phenomenal. <3
