"Burned Bridges" as written by and Stacy Hilt Sean Ingram....
I've met that point in my life.
Want came to need.
Burn these fields of corn, that surround.
My harvest gone at the price of maturity.
But these remains I've left to rot will be resurrected again and again
by the next generation of children who want to change minds
with the stain on hand.
But, it's deeper than this, I'm not the only one who sees, it lies in diversity;
acceptance to a degree, only to a degree.
The fire that once occupied my eyes has spread to destroy this world
I have grown. You have nothing new to scream beyond your fields
and not a second of patience to learn from me the same.
This time I harvest the crops of my past.
As far as the demigods are concerned, I've sold myself out just the same.
I've burned bridges to feign brothers.
Brothers of nothing more than a simple label.
So now, I'm in control after all, for myself I prove I still am.
But within these fields, they'll say I never was

    General CommentYes, it is really a cover. They covered each other's songs... the bands are on rather good terms seeing as that James Dewees drums for Coalesce and also plays guitar for the GUK.

    General Commentthe actual ones are:
    At this point in my life, i feel the need to harverst these fields of corn that surround. My harvest lost at the price of maturity. But these remains that I've left to rot will be resurrected again and again by the next generation of children who want to change minds with the stationed hand. But I'm not the only one who sees it lies in diversity; acceptance only to a degree. The fire that once occupied my eyes has crawled to destroy the world that I have grown. There's nothing new to scream beyond these fields and not a second of patience to learn from them. But you're Resurected again and again. I harvest the crops of my past. As far as the demigods are concerned, I've sold myself out, out just the same. I've burned the bridges to feign brothers. Nothing more than a simple label, nothing more than a simple. Here I reside, the edge after all to prove to myself that i still am, but within these fields, they'll say I never was.

    General CommentThe lyrics that are posted there are the ones from the coalesce version, which explains the difference. The GUK altered the lyrics, and so the ones perfect loss posted are indeed the correct ones.
