five lives dead and gone. we breathe out of key and wonder if you can hear the awkwardness in these tremors. Draining, cutting this cancer out. Teeth gaping yet I make no sound. six hammers and one sky, falling. five lives dead and gone. mediocrity in believing in everything, and this lack of will has buried them forever.

    General CommentSuch A simplistically powerful little song
    One of my favorites just for the ending; reminds me of waking up on a perfect autumn day and seeing a beautiful girl run down your street but soon disappear with the alarm clock. One of th emany various visuals my heads cooked up with this track. But ultimately i think the song deals with sudden tragedy.
