and we continue to chase the sun
only to burn up both our hands
and we will find out what's to know...
in warning winds the truth will blow

you might feel I'm feeling all the guilt
dragging out the hours, all decieved
well, both are harmless and haunting to me
now remember your heroes
as a cancel out zero
like you were young again

a man you haven't seen in years
ressurecting your deepest fears
returns a favor unto himself...
by turning us the other cheek

you're another coat of red in hell.
kill this child to make sure I'd raise him well.

on a concrete road to recovery
cause I'm knocking over every cone
in front of me.

    General CommentAlong with Luminance this is my favourite Cave In song. Oh man they rock out. I agree with Convectuoso on the title. As for the meaning, I guess it's one of those ones that's strikes a different chord with everyone. To me it has this really huge religious aspect to it. Kinda about those things like guilt, repetence, fear, the stuff that 'God' supposedly advises us on how to deal with in the bible. But how, in the real world, it's kinda hard for anyone, even someone with a really strong faith to always be rational and mild. But maybe that's just me. Kick ass song anyway.

    General CommentThis song is unbelievable as is the whole CD. I agree totally with Julian about the meaning. Alot of religious feel to it , which being a former christian turned agnostic/atheist i can totally relate too. I love the last line. It reminds me of just how hypocritical and contradicting religion and religious people can be.

    General Commentdefinitely epic...

    the whole last 3 minutes of the song gives me the chills... from where he sings "you're another coat of red in hell"... all the way to "on a concrete road to recovery" part... geebus.. also where he sings "you were never the one to slip away-ee-yay"... amazing part
