Looking down from up here. It looks like a thousand of the blackest graves.
I haven't ever been so overcome with tears. That I collapsed to my knees
outside your room. Your hospital room. And the flashbacks of what I
remember play over and over. Like a never ending horror. A flash and I see
you laying in the snow. And I still don't even know who I am. I can't seem
to gain control of my own mind. Someone else has taken over and I can't
seem to come to my senses. What happened back there? What happened
back there that had us staring into the eyes of death? This is all a black hole
in my mind. And all I know is that I keep thinking about it. And I keep on
crying, I just keep on crying. What happened back there? Remember all
those games in kindergarten. Please don't forget all those memories that we've
shared. And Casey please don't leave me here all by myself. What happened
back there? What happened back there that had us staring into the eyes of
death? The eyes of death.

    General CommentThis song brings me to tears... Scott was in a car accident and his friend Casey was thrown from the car (Scott wasn't driving by the way)... anyways, this song is about Scott not wanting to lose his best friend... Casey is in a wheel chair and I guess when he saw this one live it was wicked intense (according to my brother)... Scott rocks!

    General Commenti'll be honest...the only reason i downloaded this song was becuase of your comment. i'd never heard of the lyndsay diaries before i saw your posting as "the most recent comment", but the lyrics and what you said about the song made me listen to it. and you're right. it's such a powerful song, full of so much emotion and sadness. it's very slow and somber -- which i'm not usually into -- but when an artist pulls it off like this, you've got to respect it. i'm a big lyndsay diaries fan now, thanks.

    General Commentthis whole car crash thing is actually how the lyndasy diaries got started scott was in a car wreck with his best friend and he wrote his best friend a song and pretty soon all of his friends were all "hey you should play it" and since then scott has been making kick ass sob-core music
