"Forgotten Hopes" as written by Timothy Mosley, Nate Hills, Nelly Furtado and Christopher Martin....
Hey you rotting in an alcoholic empty shell
Banging on the walls of your intoxicated mind
Do you ever wonder why you were left alone
As your heart grew colder and finally tourned to stone

Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping

Pathetic oblivion
Forgotten hopes buried in your soul's lonely grave
Pathetic oblivion
Remember how you were before you locked your heart away

Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping

    General CommentYou guys don't get this song becaouse you probably don't know what it's like to be an alcoholic. It's about drifting away from your family and fiends and truly alike closing yourself up in your small shell of trust ridden world. It's a pathetic state of regret and constant feeling of being trapped.
    I really wish you never to get the full meaning of those lyrics.

    General Commenti wathed an acoustic home video of this song. it was so great.i think their style is so similar to Pink Floyd
    with changes in lyrics which is arise from our society conditions. i realy love Anathema.
