"Fool In The Photograph" as written by and Dan Hoerner William Goldsmith....
me and the fool in the photograph
a soul many times revealed
the scars only half concealed...

i wonder how many days i'll bleed
with the words i refuse to form:
now i will be free...
but lately, i refuse you
with these arms i will break through you
wait only to see you far removed

no more the fool in the photograph
that night chained in your embrace
day dawned and i saw your face

i wonder how many days i'll bleed
with the words i begin to form:
now i will be free...
lately, i refuse you
with these arms i will break through you
wait only to see you far removed

wasting time, you tell the story still
made you mind you're chasing the moon
making scars among the glory
still you're pulling down
wasting time, you tell the story
some kind of magic
i've waited here all too long...

    General CommentActually, this was the first SDRE song I had heard through LaunchCast and it totally blew me away. If it wasn't for this song, I would have probably never looked into SDRE even further and would have missed out on a fantastic band.

    General Commentprobaly about Jesus and how jeremy egnik wants to join him up in heaven.

    Wasting time you tell the story still
    Made your mind you're chasing the moon
    Making scars among the glory
    Still you're pulling down
    Wasting time you tell the story
    Some kind of magic
    I've waited here all too long...

    My InterpretationThis might be a very face-value interpretation but to me, I think it's just a break-up song, about knowing you'll still be hurt by the breakup even though in the end you'll be better off without them. The last part especially makes me think that it went a bit sour near the end and no matter how much you waited for them to change they never did.
