"Movies" as written by Ashanti S. Douglas, Matthew Miller, Reginald Antonio Wiggins, Gerard Thomas, Demario Bridges, Irving Domingo Lorenzo and Marcus Vest....
At slow speed we all seem focused
In motion we seem wrong
In summer we can taste the rain

[Chorus]
I want you to be free
Don't worry about me
And just like the movies
We play out our last scene

Two can play this game
We both want power
In winter we can taste the pain

In our short years, we come long way
To treat it bad and throw away

[Chorus]

You won't cry, I won't scream

In our short years we come long way
To treat it bad and throw away
And if we make a little space
A science fiction showcase
In our short film, a love disgrace
Dream a scene to brighten face
In our short years we come long way
To treat it bad, just to throw it away

[Chorus]

    General CommentSounds like he was in a relationship that ended badly, anyway, he is comapring the relationship to a dramatic movie. He says that the relationship has come a long way just for them to treat it badly. And the vid with the oompas is the revised version, the original was my fav but they said that the new version showed the band in a more natural way. Oh well.

    God Bless Alien Ant Farm :D

    General CommentYou gotta appreciate the ability to make a decent song out of one big running analogy, and this song is so much better than decent. The lyrics are really sincere, which always scores big points in my book, and the song's got a great hook. Good stuff.
