"Entombed" as written by and Chino Camilo Moreno Frank Mirelez Delgado....
From the day you arrived
I've remained on your side
In chains, entombed.
Placed inside, safe and sound
Shapes and colors are all I see.

On the day you arrived
I became your device
To lay and soothe.
Placed inside, safe and sound
Shapes and colors are all I see
Shades of colors are all I feel.

From the day you arrive
I'll stay by your side.
Placed inside, safe and sound
Shapes of colors are all I see
Shapes of colors are all I feel

Placed inside, safe inside
Shades of colors are all I see
Safe inside

    General CommentThis song is really sad... clearly about Chi in my opinion. ;(

    General CommentI think the nature of the lyrics and the way he sings the song say it all, it's about Chi. At the chorus, you can almost hear that break in his voice, the one you hear when someone's talking to you on the brink of falling apart. Heart-breaking, really. My favourite song on the album though, it's beautiful.

    General CommentI agree that it could be interpreted as a song about Chi.. But it could also be interpreted as a song about someone else. Basically, in my opinion, the lines "From the day you arrived, I've remained by your side, in chains, entombed" stands for describing a relationship with a person who is outside the realm of possibility to provide assistance for. This could be about Chi as much as it could be about a possible past relationship with someone else. However, I feel it is closer to being about Chi than anything else. The lines "On the day you arrived, I became your device to name and soothe" could also be interpreted as representing the situation in which, perhaps, Chino attempted to connect with Chi during which he was in a coma by trying to remind himself of his name and their shared memories together, and to provide him with hope for a future.

    Overall, I do feel it could be about Chi, but at the same time especially with the nature of Chino's lyrics, you can never be sure of anything being absolute about them. They're open to interpretation as always.

    General CommentChino said a lot of his lyrics aren't necessarily about him, so it could be a loved one of Chi's. It just sounds too romantic to be a "bro" song, but you never know.

    General Comment"Entombed", safe and sound, placed inside a mother's womb. The arrival there is about birth. While you're a fetus all you see is "shades of colors". The mother is always by the son's side, since the day he arrive.

    My InterpretationThis definitely sounds like it's coming from Chi's perspective talking to Chino. He's been entombed, first placed in a coma and then in a semi conscious state where perhaps all he sees is shapes and colors...

    General CommentSeems like Chino can be writing about a mother and her child before and after birth. Entombed, placed inside, safe and sound. That's talking about the baby in its mother's womb.

    "From the day you arrived, I became your device, to NAME and SOOTH." A mother will name her child and sooth them as well. Could be about Chi too. I'm sure it can be about a ton of things. That's probably how Chino likes it.

    General CommentEntombed.... Being trapped inside this body... In a coma. His whole being is trapped... "safe" inside his body... even though this isn't how he really feels. It's like he is buried alive. Chino has been there by his side since he has arrived, chained to his hospital bed. When he wakes, Chino puts himself in his eyes. Shapes and colors all all he sees and feels. Everything is a blur... trying to wake up... he sees what Chi sees. This is such an emotional, heartfelt song to me. His lyrics are so all over the place, but this is how I chose to interpret it. I can't stop listening to it... I don't even know how to put the way I interpret it or feel about it into perfect words. This band is so amazing!

    General CommentI feel like this song is written from the perspective of a stuffed animal or toy in a newborns'baby's crib. It was there from day one all it sees is shapes and colors from the interactive learning things above the crib. There to soothe when the baby is upset. But at the same time the stuffed toy can't go anywhere so it is entombed in the crib. To me the guitar sounds like a lullaby that you would play for a child when trying to get them to sleep. Repetitive and mellow and soothing. Nonetheless a badass song and the first that I connected with on the album!
