there are signs in my life telling me to stop and look around
i can't hide them. they're showing up all the time
tell one more wicked lie trying to disguise myself
all those little things are the same in my fathers eye's.

this time i know you won't let me go
so open your eyes and.

remove this blindfold. could you see thru the crease in the side
dirty blindfold caused the infection you desired
all this time we ask why must we die
you said jesus saved us, that he'll be here by our sides.

this time i know you won't let me go
so open your eyes and cry on me i'm in need
this time i know you won't let me fold
so open your eyes and cry on me i'm in need.

i'll be mad if you use her
i'm so much less of something more
velvet covers over your sores
sleep so nicely when everyone's unseen.

i'm given
i have been given much more than i realize
slowing me down to one fucking step at a time
wasting away until the end of days
my past has shattered and melted out of phase
now i'm trying to be true to myself, not disguise myself in a ministry
conceited vibes dismember me
break off away never got back begin
never said freestylin was the way till the end.

(sitting here i'm nowhere wasting a day as four years
i guess i'll cry).

this time i know you won't let me go
so open your eyes and cry on me i'm in need
this time i know you won't let me fold
so open your eyes and cry on me it's just an understanding.

    General CommentAlso my personal fav. Can't wait for their new album. Too bad they were forced to change their name, but I guess [minus.driver] is pretty cool.
