From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stop and just what I thought
The sun has escaped us
So I'm bright in the sky
And I'm far from rapist
Look at why did try (2x)

From the thread to the needle, middle to end
When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
The rain then sends dripping acidic questions
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut looking thought the rust and rotten dust
A spot of light floods the floor
And pours itself upon a world of pretend
Then the eyes ease open and its dark again

Chorus

Bridge:
In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

Moving all around
Screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
And as wheels go round the sunset creeps past the
Street lamps, cars, chain-links, and concrete
A wind open grows and captures the eye
Cry?s out yellow light as it passes it by
A small black figure sits in front of a box
Inside a box a rock with the needles on top

Nothing stops in the slanted the chain
The brains lose not knowing they were part of the game
And the insides go but the box stays the same
And shame, shovel up the pieces to the pain
You could try to hide yourself in the world of pretend
When the paper's crumbled up it can't be perfect again

Chorus
Bridge

Yeah I got you got in the act
You better step back
Telling me that
I seein' right through you (7x)

Bridge (2x)

    General Commentcsreech, i went to the site, and i love the songs, but is there a way to download the mp3's, rather than just listen to them via the website?

    General CommentDoes anybody know what song this becomes? If you don't, it's Forgotten. ^_^ Just compare lyrics. If you d/l the song and listen, it sounds JUST like it...even the backround music's the same. The only difference is the guy who's singing in Chaz's place and the alternate lyrics.

    General CommentThis song was hard to listen to. It was all scratchy and the singer (Mark Wakefield) isn't as good as Chester...but yes, it DOES end up being "Forgotten".

    General CommentSound is the same, but most of the lyrics were only used in FRGT/10.

    General CommentThis is a demo for Forgotten back when Wakefield was their lead singer, but the finished product, Forgotten, is much better than the demo, however, I'd love to see Chester remix this demo.
