Hot Cross – Existence Lyrics 8 years ago
Hey, sorry for the delay...it only took me a year and a half to edit this. Better late than never, I guess!

The lyrics I originally submitted were actually based on the rough studio demo Hot Cross released about a year before Risk Revival came out (they released Existence and Rejoinder, I believe). Some of the words changed in the final version (the lyrics you provided), but others were just me being off with my hearing. I believe "knives" was originally "guns" and "slipping" was DEFINITELY "tripping" at first. Regardless though, I very much appreciate your corrections.

It's a bit hard to believe that so much time has passed since I submitted these lyrics initially...Hell, I was 16. Time flies and it's these little things that keep bringing us back.

Wow, Owls! – destination pizza Lyrics 14 years ago
I think you sound less like a tool than most of the people on this site, haha.

Doesn't sound like you're too far off with your interpretation. When a fad dies, they stop blending in. Doesn't really sound like anyone in that song is growing up though.

Hot Cross – Fatefully Lyrics 14 years ago
To sedated_emotions:

I said that too after the first few times I listened to the CD the first few times. Then I realized:it doesn't sound bad, but it definately doesn't sound like their old stuff. One reason is because Josh isn't there anymore. I have no clue why Billy used effects in his voice. However, this about this: how long would you really enjoy them if they sounded the same every record?

On the other hand, congrats on being a little scene conformist. It's not about what you want everything to sound like. As I've said, it's better to be different. As long as there is some insight, significance, and effort in the songs, they shouldn't be dissed or rejected (unless you think you can do better, of course). Now, go look up "screamo" on urbandictionary and make your playlist for the week.

I edited it because I listened to the beginning more closely. Any help is welcome.

1905 – Voice Lyrics 15 years ago
No wonder they named the album after this song. For a song that's less than two minutes long, it's extremely powerful. So many contrasts and harmonies.

The message is about the corruption of every younger generation by older ones. Quite genius.

The Fall of Troy – Macaulay McCulkin Lyrics 15 years ago
The actor's name is Macaulay Culkin. I wonder why they called it "McCulkin". Maybe just to repeat the "Mac" sound.

Saetia – The Burden Of Reflecting Lyrics 15 years ago
I was just looking over Saetia lyrics for the first time in forever and I realized that this song (more or less) contains a rhyme scheme unlike all (at least I think it's all) the other ones. That makes it quite unique.

You And I – 143(jcm) Lyrics 15 years ago
143 is "I love you" (1 letter, 4 letters, 3 letters). So technically, that line is the same thing as the Usurp Synapse song title "What would you do if I said 'I love you'?"

The Fall of Troy – Ghostship Pt V Lyrics 15 years ago
It's amazing how much the bass stands out in this song. You can actually hear it better than the guitar during most of the song.

The Fall of Troy – The Tears of Green Eyed Angels Lyrics 15 years ago
Is this song also from the Thirty Years War?
'Cause the last line is the same as the one in "What Sound Does A Mastodon Make?"

Yaphet Kotto – The Fall Lyrics 15 years ago
Not only do we not have control over anything, but we also control everything. The song implies that man himself is the plague.

Hot Cross – Finger Redux Lyrics 15 years ago
In Midnight's Children, there is a chapter called "Alpha and Omega." Rushdie suggests in the second paragraph that an alternative title for the chapter could have been "Finger Redux." I wouldn't be surprised if that played a part in the naming of this song as Billy is pretty big on Rushdie.

Hot Cross – Solanka Lyrics 15 years ago
I finished it a while ago. The ending seemed a bit unresolved, but it wat was nonetheless a great place to leave it off.

I'd reccommed it. Fuck, I'd point a gun to your head and make you read it because the book is just that good.

What it's saying is that the speaker wishes he had the guts to ask the "she" of the song out, but doesn't get the chance to and/or is still a coward.

Funeral Diner – Two Houses Lyrics 15 years ago
Ruthless killing at war. That's what this song makes me think of, especially Vietman. Just the whole helpless atmosphere where you're walking through a booby trapped jungle while you're being attacked by guerilla fighters. You're pretty helpless; that's what "when we can't save ourselves" made me think of.

Isn't it strange to write a song about a city on the other side of the U.S.? I would definately like to know Billy's reason.

Hot Cross – Pretty Picture of a Broken Face Lyrics 15 years ago
The last Hot Cross show I went to, Billy was on stage, and right before they played this, he said "This song is about myspace."

Whether he was joking or not is beyond me, but I can totally see it.

Off Minor – Cadaveric Lyrics 15 years ago
It's contradicting the idea of "Birds of a feather flock together." When it's talking about history/histology and biography/biology it's saying that just because the words have the same root "histo" and "bio", they aren't even close to similar. People are unique. People change. Some move on, while others don't.
