Black and gray clouds willow in the balance as the sun falls.
Rain plays a heart warming tune, on the pavement.
Emotions stir.
A feeling of warmness, compassion, fullness, I feel at home.
Disguised by surroundings.
As the torn and left in the gutter seek vengeance on their mistreated lives.
As the torn and left in the cold, seek vengeance on mistreated lives.
A silhouette stands still.
A cactus on a warm summer night.
But the rain falls cold and the moon shines bright.
Black as night.
Cold as ice.
Warm as home.
Ready to live.
Stars they shoot.
In a clear.
Across the sky.
As does my time.
Waiting, wanting, feeling, emotion.
Crying, breaking, loving, nothing.
Clouds swallow the moon, and I’m alone, thinking good times, and why'd they go?
Falling down, breaking down parts of me.
Fuck. I need this place to get away from you.

    General Commentnot to be repeatative, but this is one of their other greatests songs (look on Turn the Other Way) and no one has written about it. very gay. The way he screams Dark as Night. Cold as Ice. etc etc is incredable, along with how he sings clouds swallow the moon...... anyway, thats it. write on here, damn you all!

    General CommentThe imagery in this song is pretty cool. It's just an overdose of gothic, dark shit, but it works somehow. And the opening to the song is great.
    I think maybe its just a reflection on life, all the stuff it involves, in this case a lot of the darker aspects.

    General Commentyeah, it seems pretty Gothic-overdone, but it's just on the edge of being overdone, so it's just really friggin' awesome

    General CommentAndthedayswerelonger are you mentaly retarded or do you just not know how to read?
    A7X has the greatest lyrics of any band today. I am a huge poetry buff and I LOVE words and analyzing songs and stories and shit ( as wierd as that sounds I assure you I'm not a nerd or a freak) and their lyrics are the epitome of perfection. they capture emotion with their words and music in a way that I've never seen (or heard) any band do, ever! Yeah, some musicians have a few songs that can do that but not EVERY SONG. the only ( AND I MEAN THE ONLY) song by a7x where the lyrics leave something to be desired is Thick and Thin.
    So if it's retardation that's the problem then I can't help you
    but if it IS a reading problem, then maby try some fucking Hooked on Phonics.

    General CommentThis song is about being a vampire, or creature of the night, for there are many breeds.

    You can only come out at night.

    Obviously.
