But you always want to stay the same girl
I know you want to be the rain
And you know that we could fall in there
For a time and then unfall again
For a while I take you burying old bones
Dawn's gray the signs in the winter light
And I know that you can feel the pain
Your eyes speak one hundred million knives

Don't tell me you've gone astray
I walk in circles
I've seen a million things that tell me so

But I was always one to play the fool girl
Though the rules were somewhat dark to me
And I know that we could fall in there
For a time and then unfall again
For a while I give you darium bound stones
Growing through the roots of your mind set apart
And I know that you can feel the pain
Your eyes speak one hundred million lies

Don't tell me you've gone astray
I walk in circles
I've seen a million things that tell me so

Total anxiety paid for variety
We'll wait for time to turn around, turn around your faith
Wait for time to turn

The world we sold, there was a choir there

Don't tell me you've gone astray
I talk in circles
Everlasting chains that bind my purpose
Only I've seen a million things that tell me so

Total anxiety pay for variety
Wait for time to turn around your faith
Choked on society laced with cyanide
Wait for time to turn around your faith
Wait for time to turn

    i think hes saying that he pretends that he doesn't know that shes a liar, and and he doesnt really know the "rules" (of love?) , but hes going to "fall in there" in to her lies and live in her little fantasy , thinking that he can always just escape later...

    maybe (from my uneducated guess) maybe its just about escaping reality with a girl that he knows is a liar and possibly damaging to him???? maybe????

    i dont care i just like its mellowness...

    General CommentThey broke up? Oh, and I agree with SevenPinkerton too. It's quite an addictive chorus.

    General Commentyeah, the reformed under the fire theft... not as good as sunny day real estate, but still 100x better than any other band out there. i saw them. jeremy was AMAZING, his voice echoed through the venue like you couldnt believe.

    jeremy, the lead singer, started a solo project between sdre and tft... its called 'return of the frog queen', you might want to check it out.
