"Eightminutesupsidedown" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow, Thomas Noonan and Mick Whitney....
Nothing new for you now, how can you bury?
Filling up all your eyes and never swearing
With your embrace I receive, receive the enemy
Is this the Christ that you need or not the Christ that you need?

Where do you gain your strength?
One look and you will know
Who chokes on boxes of fucking pills?

Choking on your thoughts of what used to be
She's clothed with the silk
Waiting to be drained dry
And the echoes will come
They'll come all around
And drain us all, dry
They'll drain us all dry

As we gag on the dust of the everyday
I choke on one more reminder you know I'm alone
Where do you gain your strength? I wish I knew
Where do you gain your strength? I wish I knew

She's clothed with the silk
Waiting to be drained dry
And the echoes will come
They'll come all around
And drain us all, dry
They'll drain us all dry

Faith has led the way, dismantle

    General CommentIt appears to be about someone the writer has had a relationaship in the past and now they have a just sex thing going on. Only the only reason he agreed to it is to keep her it some form. the echoes refer to the echoes of what use to be, i.e. their relationship. The last line refers to his faith she will one day love him again. If you were wondering on the first line it represents his amazement that she can bury the feelings she use to have to use him.

    However thats my verson of it. Sounds right to me, could be wrong, ask the writer.

    General Commentthis is a tough one, but i think it has to do with a girl who gets around, or just a girl he has sex with. And he looks at her and sees someone who is stronger than him for some reason, perhaps because she can use him, or vice versa. also the line "the echos will come, they'll come all around, and drain us all dry", he mite be talking about rumors, and how when ppl find out about him and this girl, the rumors will destroy them and their reputations

    General Commentenglish is not my mother language, so dont mind if i tell any crap, but it could be about an impossible relationship. u know, some kind of romeo and julia stuff. he just can have her for eight minutes, because they always have to be afraid someone (the echoes) will find out and he cant stand this...

    just this "what used to be" doesnt really fit...

    what u think?
