Every moment I stand there and wait I recall
How you told me you don't care
It was there that you ruptured the seal in the wall
That time cannot repair

Letting it be what it is
It's impossible to know what you need
When you seem so emotionless

What'll bring you back to life?
Machine beware turn it back again

Just wanted to know every word that was said
So many were unclear
And I didn't notice if anything changed
Until you left me here

Setting it free with the wind
Seems impossible that we'd let it be what it is
So emotionless

What'll bring you back to life?
Machine beware turn it back again
What'll bring you back to life?
Machine beware turn it back again

Your stories never end
Our time is now suspended
I never feared man
So why won't you let me in this time?

What'll bring you back to life?
What'll bring you back?
I wanna bring you back

Your stories never end
Our time is now suspended
I never feared man
So why won't you let me in this time?

    General Comment"Colin wrote the music for this song after being inspired by that Crosses band (Chino from Deftones' side project). No one else in the band seemed to be into it besides me and I started to work on it right away. The demo had a real electronic feel and it was so different. The lyrics came from a place where I was trying to revive passion in a creative partner who seemed to lose their focus." -Anthony Green

    My Interpretationit feels like the person he cared about is depressed to me. when he says bring them back to "life" it doesn't seem like he means literally bring them back from the dead. but you know how it goes with depression, so i think that's what he means. "it's impossible to know what you need when you seem so emotionless" really gives off that vibe as well. maybe that's just me but it's what i take from this song, could also be about someone addicted to drugs so they are like really far gone and all, but i feel more like the whole dead inside via depression seems a better fit

    General CommentFrom my perspective, it sounds like Anthony's friend committed suicide in the beginning of the song. "Ruptured the seal in the wall" meaning the bullet, that "time cannot repair." The rest of the song seems to be a reflection on the events leading up to his friends' suicide. "So emotionless" I interpret as his friend being dead, "What'll bring you back to life?" A strong statement, the machine reference I don't get unless it's the machines in the hospital. The whole stanza with "Your stories never end, our time is now suspended..." seems like a reflection, like I previously said, before his friend committed suicide. Circa Survive, folks (Stay alive).
