"Turns To Ashes" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow, Thomas Noonan and Mick Whitney....
I'm not sick, I'm just a boy
Sifting through the new found lie
And I'll be crawling through these ashes and dissecting all these flies
Since the sun has died and it is still somewhat July

Is this all the world has to offer?
And I don't know how much you thought I'd be
It turns to ashes on me

One more piece inside these lines
Deeper harms my disguise
And everyone is different so everyone is sly
And everything's still horrible since everyone still dies

Is this all the world has to offer?
And I don't know how much you thought I'd be
It turns to ashes on me

Is this all the world has to offer?
It turns to ashes on me

No one is safe

    General Commentthis song is clearly about how he thought the world would be so much different by the time that he'd grwon up, only to find out it was worse then he had imagined.
    it could also be about how people expected so much of him when he was young, but he didn't turn out to be the way anyone wanted him to.

    General CommentI agree with you on the little boy thing espescially with the line "And everything's still horrible since everyone still dies". I kinda sounds like what a kid would say.

    General Commentsellout? thats a STUPID REDICULOUS IGGNORANT term. The whole point in being im a band to to share your music. Everyone likes them so thats it they suck ? Whoever hates sellous, was probably never really into there music. Jesus Christ they want to let everyone hear there music, besides, they cant fucking control who listens to there music !

    General CommentI hope so... but it does kinda annoy me when you've been a fan of a band since the beginning and then loads of people jump on the band wagon because they are popular. It happened with LostProphets (If anyone's heard of them) I liked them since January 2001 (I still do) and everyone was like "LostProphets are shit!" and now that they are big and popular everyone's like "Oh I love LostProphets" Argh! That pisses me off! Yeah, this song rocks!! ps. Selling out is when you compromise your ideals or change your style to make an easy dollar!

    General Commentno one things lost prophets are cool and they arent big buddy so dont worry. I first heard of the 36 Crazy Fists 4 years ago when they play at the CD Exchange in Lebanon, Oregon when 20 people were there so dont tell me that i havent jumped on the bandwagon either. 36 will get big and not sell out they will not.
