Subtle lines of separation mapped out on paper-another useless boundary. Just another reason for more division. It seems we want more enemies. The things we had in common withered with time. Ideals that once meant something have all died. The walls we worked to break have been replaced. A scene once filled with love now thrives on hate. We used to stand on the same side until we met this great divide based on bullshit labels and petty politics. We've lost our way in this war we wage where we're all the same. Alone and scared and simply searching for a better way. So where's the middleground where we once stood? Either we're too strict with our politics or too slack in the lives we lead. It breaks my heart that we let ourselves fall apart. We used to be a threat. United we had a chance, but divided we don't mean shit compared to the mindless masses we fight against. We've torn our house down from the inside out with the convenience of cliques. Our desperate need to classify everything will be our death.

    General Commentthis one's about the hardcore scene, it can also be compared to many things in this world, such as politics, or just the world...

    General CommentI cant believe this band never got huge before they broke up. They were an amazing band, plain and simple. They are so much better than 95% of all the other bands out there, and this song is proof enough for it. Its a damn shame they broke up, they were an amazing band, and I never got to see them live.

    General CommentThey were huge to me for a really long time now, the grey will live on for as long as I am alive, the grey sends a message to us all. Thier songs are amazing becuase they never wrote any new ones, if you listen to thier FIRST album under the name tomorrows gone, they are the same songs, they took years and years and perfected them, and what we are left with is simply amazing, I dont think they could have ever topped this, I for one am glad they broke up, the second album would not have the years of passion behind it...
