One more time then I'II know
One more lie then I'II go away
Pour another drink and I'II ease
Myself into the comforts of your fool-lie-sophy

Try to understand your friend in need
And I'm here to make it easier
You and I are one in the same
We're built alike in so many ways

You can't understand and you won't accept
Your secrets are all safely kept here
Inside we're so lost
I can be the one to find you

Everything that you deserve
No request will ever go unheard
Ohhhhhbetter off without me nowOhhhh
But without me here you're just better off alone

Just wait and see
You're just like me yeah
Conversation's getting stale
A penny for your thoughts one small betrayal

Does no man know what he's good for?
Does no man want what he's asked for?
It's all lost
Filling spaces

It takes our design
I've spent a lifetime
Waiting for te chance to chase these devils away
But they always come smiling when you need'em the most

So I'II end this night alone again
Wth nothing to offer and nothing to give
Conversations spoken in vein alone

So go away
It's easier if I stay
So go away
It's easier this way

    General CommentThis is a great song. I spent hours listening to it over and over and over. Just to get the lyrics just right. I prefer to listen and transcribe the lyrics myself. It kinda gives me a feeling that I've understood something I guess... Anywho, I ran into some trouble in the 3rd bold section from the top. When I wrote "It's all lost, Filling spaces" I'm not quite sure that that was the said lyrics... It sounded like that, but due to the voice effects it was hard to tell. If anyone can offer me some help on that particular section it would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

    General Commentblackrob, last time i checked strung out was releasing their first album about the same time the members of thrice were being breastfed. thrice is an amazing band. but id like to think its the other way around...thrice is UP there with strung out. but then again your probably 15 and just getting into the scene. no offence to you. enjoy.

    General CommentI think it's Fill these spaces. And I really don't care who's on top or anything but Thrice and Strung Out are two of the best bands out there.

    General Commentthe lyrics represent a conversation between Satan (Mephisto) and a human being, with the devil trying to tempt the person to sell his soul to him

    General Comment"Its all lost, filling spaces." = "It's over empty spaces."

    And while longevity does not equal quality, comparing Stung Out to any band is just wrong.
