because it cuts so deep to see myself wishing upon melting stars
I cut the cord I finally give in...
beyond visions of wretched smiles
and the dread that they've befriended
I have seen an end to you and I
(when did "we" begin)
and a warped sense of being that I embrace must exist
and we with whole hearts yet broken words
we dream of wisdom but I yearn only for you
you will destroy me with words that you have never spoken...
I've drawn a picture of us twisted within
yet below this world I absorb life from portraits
as long as we remain abreast of one another we will never meet each other
as long as we whisper to one another we will never fully hear each other
as long as my eyelids are weighed down by desire and one dying wish
I will never know when you appear

    General Commenthe obviously likes this person so much but nothing is going to happen between them and he "finally gives in" and realizes that he has no chance with her and that he's wishes and desires will never come true (melting stars). He pretty much says, "well, i'm gonna try and get over you" when he says "I have seen an end to you and i" but they never began a relationship to begin with (when did we begin?) He is dying on the inside, he wants to hear her speak, but he's afraid of what she might say (you will destroy me with words that you have never spoken) He wants to be with her so bad, he starts imagining them together (i've drawn a picture of us twisted within yet below this world) He's DYING to be with her (i absorb life in portraits). But in the end, he never speaks to her, or has a relationship with her like he really wants.

    General CommentSaetia will remain my favorite band of all time. When all the members scream, "When did we begin?!", I can only indulge on the emotion they've put into this song, if not their best work. Not only that but the choice of lyrics, how they are expressed, and the literate genius of all their songs.

    General CommentI disagree actually, I think they should all eventually break up. Sooner or later, they will hit the point where they arnt really creating anything different or innovative anymore. See Linkin Park. I think its better they have created a few absolutely amazing songs and nothing more. Goes better with their legacy. Just my 2cents...

    General Commentoh btw, dont get me wrong, I wasnt even remotely comparing them with Linkin Park, they are a freaking horrible band in all aspects.
