"Time Consumer" as written by and Joshua Eppard Travis Stever....
The young stale memories
Of the play the role to your part
Librarian find me the pole
The one that kicks your head in
With my own time role your own innocence by
Grab on to my sleeve
The one that grabs at your ankle
Debate to understand that we all have a flaw
The fail to represent your life as you know it
God grant you one wish
To turn back the time...correct and create

Me and my star Matthew goodnight
You know by law when you'll be forgiven
Maria my star Matthew goodnight
You know my lord when you'll be forgiven

So they pulled your confidence down
With those verbal discrepancies
Now and then you'll gain what they've lost
Through a challenge of unpronounced
Pain is only a pulse if you stop feeling it
You might be able to use
The very thing that makes us up

Me and my star Matthew goodnight
You know by law when you'll be forgiven
Maria my star Matthew goodnight
You know my lord when you'll be forgiven

Wait, now, here when will you believe?
Me I'm merely asking you to help me
When did I say to murder?
Wait, now, here, please hear me out
Time consumer, time consuming, consume me

    General CommentThis song is about Coheed dealing with the fact he must kill his children. This song in particular also deals with the killing of his two youngest, the twins, Maria and Matthew. He poisons them both. If you read the amazing comics, you will understand.

    General Commentthe some is about Coheed (The father of Claudio in The Amory Wars story) killing Maria and Matthew (The twins mentioned in early songs). the "Maria my star...Matthew goodnight" is Coheeds last words to them.

    General CommentCoheed and Cambria are NOT emo. They are pure ROCK. In fact, they are the revival of MELODIC rock. THey are just amazing. Of you think their lyrics are good, go listen to them. The guy can sing like no other. His range is rediculous. I love these guys. AMAZING.

    General Commenti don't believe that someone went through every coheed and cambria song making the same post about them not being emo. who said they are in the first place? and it really doesn't matter, they are just unique and amazing live. this song rocks.
