Stare into my eyes
Rake your nails across my skin
I know the reason embers of you scatter as you breathe
[embers of you scatter when]
The life you knew disappears
In its wake with one skin
[in its wake your standing in]
As paper I cut your life
[and in paper i cut your life]
Follow the outline that you traced
Embers of you scatter when]
The life you knew disappears
In its wake you stand with one skin that you do not own
[in its wake your standing in..
as these waves break, there is things i'll miss, things i miss,
and i'm feeling fake, with my whole life on your lips]
The sky is closed today
So here i sit, waiting
For a word that is hidden in Clouds
To take me back from here
[I'm hoping that this fever breaks when this smile spites my face]
Somewhere
Take me back
To a place
I will not
Feel as you
Somewhere
Anywhere
Far away from the offline of you

    General CommentThis is a great song....great breakdown, a killer melodic section, and some great screaming....lots of technical stuff also. The lyrics seem to be just general frustration about a relationship. Awesome song.
