forever is so easy to say
but i can't stand to wait
be slapped in the face.
i'll keep this to my self
you can't know.
smile for me.
pretend it's
alright.
knocked down...what's the use?
i can't make you happy.
i can't even make you feel
anymore.
how can you look in my face
and say that?
i believe in fear and
complacency.
what do you
believe in?
what do you
believe?

    General Commenti wouldn't say it's the best, really, but it is pretty good.

    "forever is so easy to say
    but i can't stand to wait"
    he's hoping for something to come out of the relationship but he realizes he doesn't want to have to wait for it.

    "smile for me.
    pretend it's
    alright.
    knocked down...what's the use?
    i can't make you happy.
    i can't even make you feel
    anymore."
    a relationship where love no longer exists but the 2 lovers choose to continue the farce to make each other feel better about themselves.

    "i believe in fear and
    complacency.
    what do you
    believe in?"
    there, jason could be questioning the other person in the relationship regarding what drove them to want to be with him. for him, it's fear, possibly of being let go and not getting reclaimed. of complacency, having the relationship only because of his desire to satisfy himself and feel secure while being unaware that maybe his significant other wanted the relationship for the same reason.

    General Commentthe lyrics are so straight forward, but yet, so deep! It just throws you right into the scenario and makes you feel. What could be better than lyrics that actually spark emotions... not just tell about them?
