"Shadow Moses" as written by and Lee David Malia Oliver Scott Sykes....
Can you tell from the look in her eyes?
We’re going no where
We live our lives like we’re ready to die
We’re going no where

Can you tell from the look in her eyes?
We’re going no where
We live our lives like we’re ready to die
We’re going no where

I thought I’d buried you
And covered the tracks
You’ll have to take this with your cold dead hands
I thought I’d buried you
We’re sinking, never die

I thought I cut you loose
Severed the feeling
I stepped through the crack as you clamp to my shirt
I thought I’d buried you
We’re sinking, never die

Can you tell from the look in her eyes
We’re going no where
We live our life like we’re ready to die
We’re going no where.

You can run but you’ll never escape
Over and over again
Will we ever see the end?
We’re going no where

This is sempiternal

Will we ever see the end?
This is sempiternal
Over and over, again and again

Rise from the dead you child
Secrets don’t deplete till they come to the ground
Signal the sirens, rally the troops
Ladies and gentlemen
Its the moment of truth

Can you tell from the look in her eyes?
We’re going no where
We live our lives like we’re ready to die
We’re going no where

You can run but never escape
Over and over again
Will we ever see the end?
We’re going no where

Can you tell from the look in her eyes?
We’re going no where
We live our lives like we’re ready to die
We’re going no where

You can run but never escape
Over and over again
Will we ever see the end?
We’re going no where

This is sempiternal

Will we ever see the end?
This is sempiternal
Over and over, again and again

    Song ComparisonI love this song so much! Bit off topic, but has anyone heard of the band FROM INSIDE?? Well I read on Twitter that Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish have written all the music for them cos they are good friends in the UK. Check out their music video for their single BE YOURSELF - FROM INSIDE by searching on Youtube, it sounds very BMTH but still its ridiculous good obviously. Mad that they are doing this too for friends bands now, really love them :D

    My InterpretationFirst off, some of these lyrics are incorrect.

    But personally, I think this song is a song to those who've been bullied, who were that one person out of the group, the victim. It says basically, that we've finally given up, ' Can you tell from the look in our eyes? We're going nowhere. ' We're the hopeless, breathing in the world of the ignorant, rude, and stubborn.

    My InterpretationJust by the chorus, I personaly interprit it as "People are looking into our eyes andseeing our pain, We live and are just done with it all" Then it leads on to say This is Semperteral Literally meaning This is Infinate. I see this as were sick of this shit you put us thew, were done with you. This will last forever, but im going to push threw. No matter what. :)

    My InterpretationPersonally I think that since Oli is an atheist like me, this song is about his disbelief in an afterlife. When Oli sings "Can you tell from the look in her eyes, we're going nowhere" I think he is making a reference to death and that when we die "We're going nowhere". The word sempiternal means everlasting or eternal and I think that when Oli says "This is sempiternal" he is saying that the universe goes on forever. Please reply if you would like to say something to me about my interpretation. Thank you.

    My OpinionI guess it's about Metal Gear Solid. Like storyline interpretation. I've never seen "Shadow Moses" anywhere else.

    My InterpretationThe title of this song has a lot to do with the meaning. I'm not doing the work for you, think about it.

    My InterpretationCan you tell from the look in her eyes?
    We’re going no where
    We live our lives like we’re ready to die
    We’re going no where.

    It's about the never ending cycles of depression, living ready to end everything. Getting up to get beat down, only to get up again to new heights to new depths.

    You can run but never escape
    Over and over again
    Will we ever see the end?
    We’re going no where
