Lydia – Stay Awake Lyrics 12 years ago
"The rain, you see in way too much safety
Because I don't stand a chance."

This is sung beautifully.

Lydia – Now the One You Once Loved Is Leaving Lyrics 12 years ago
"Suddenly, a cloud must have cleared
A hole in my head
When I was tangled all in your words"

Mindy sounds amazing and this is my favorite song on the album.

Lydia – Hospital Lyrics 12 years ago
"Now look, we've made a fool out of love
When all we want is to be enough
When all we want is to feel enough"

This part sounds amazing.

Deas Vail – A Lover's Charm Lyrics 13 years ago
"Don't cry, love, oh don't cry
You know I won't let you go
Cause I gave everything tonight
So that you could come back home
With a smile upon your face
And the morning in your arms
I changed everything in this place
Because you're worth a lover's charm "

Love this.

Dead Poetic – Burgundy Lyrics 13 years ago
"Burgundy blood pouring over my head,"

I think this is a reference to Jesus' crown of thorns.. and therefore this song is about waiting for God to come open his eyes, and relieve him of his loneliness.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – Cheap Motel Room Lyrics 13 years ago
I think this is about being stuck in a certain place in life for quite some time (the past two years or so) and the desire to feel alive, and do something you'll regret just to say you lived, just to abandon that place you're stuck in.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – A Children's Crusade On Acid Lyrics 13 years ago
"and a hundred thousand times a day
the yellow lights turn red
and a hundred thousand miles away
i'm turning myself in"


Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – Things You Shouldn't Do Lyrics 13 years ago
"There's some things you shouldn't do
Like giving your time
To people who don't care for you "

This is so simple yet striking.

Type O Negative – Love You To Death Lyrics 13 years ago
"Let me love you to death".

Type O Negative – Die With Me Lyrics 13 years ago
Amazing song.

The Spill Canvas – Hush Hush Lyrics 13 years ago
Girls been lying to him, around the town.

Good song.

The Spill Canvas – Low Fidelity Lyrics 13 years ago
I don't think the girl is unfaithful. I think she simply doesn't take part in his lifestyle on the road. So he wishes he could protect her and keep her safe and claim her as his, but he is simply too far away and realizes it is not likely to ever work.

The Spill Canvas – Reckless Abandonment Lyrics 13 years ago
"I'm not concerned with pleasing
All those little pricks and all their little scenes."
[I thought it was brats, but pricks works, too.]

In concert this made me laugh,
because it's all I saw when I looked around.

The Spill Canvas – Appreciation and the Bomb Lyrics 13 years ago
I didn't like this song on first few listens,
but it has definitely grown on me.

And it sounds to me like he is saying "Whitney".

Between the Buried and Me – Croakies and Boatshoes Lyrics 13 years ago
"Don't stare

At my car
At my shirt
At my girl "


Between the Buried and Me – Viridian Lyrics 13 years ago

Between the Buried and Me – White Walls Lyrics 13 years ago
I have been having this song for over a month and I still cannot fathom it.

"This is all we have when we die.
It's what's left of us when we die.
We will be remembered for this."

I get chills here, the vocals are amazing and this is a perfect ending to the album; intensity then simple piano chords.

Between the Buried and Me – Foam Born (B) The Decade of Statues Lyrics 13 years ago
"And like I said before the color keeps fading
I couldn't trade this for anything in the world...
And all of you are the reason. It's been a while since we've
Written each other and hopefully this will comfort you
Cause like most of my kind, I won't take it all for granted."

Nice to know, because this is amazing and a band taking the time to say that is as well. :]

Between the Buried and Me – Prequel to the Sequel Lyrics 13 years ago

Between the Buried and Me – Sun of Nothing Lyrics 13 years ago
This song is perfection.

"Floating towards the sun, the sun of nothing.." is epic.

"I can't believe that’s what it has come to... I never really had it all that bad." Awesome.

Favorite on the album.

Between the Buried and Me – Ants of the Sky Lyrics 13 years ago
I think the title signifies our smallness in a world so big, all seeking to find our greatest potential.

"Why should we sleep today...
Why should we awake tomorrow?
we can just pop back a few and drift through this pre-programmed flight."

This signifies the questions we all ask ourselves at times: why am I here, what is my purpose, why should I wake up tomorrow morning? when some feel that life is fate and their destiny is alrealdy determined, they are just pieces on the chess board.

This part makes me think the song is describing two different types of people:

"My teeth grin oddly today...
They seem to gleam more than normal
Maybe it will be noticed
(That's all we ever asked for. Grinning through it all........)"

The above meaning that even though life is a difficult journey, "Grinning through it all," or making the best of what we have is what some choose to do. And all in all their wishes are that someone will notice and acknowledge that positivity on life.

"(In the other corner the thinker thinks: I seem more jagged than normal
I am the episode of constant wandering
A nomad in my own surroundings... this hand produces the nerve).
Walking dead. "

This represents someone that grimaces through life, negative, wandering, and never actively seeking that which could make them happy, and are ultimately "walking dead" because they have no dreams, no efforts to seek their true happiness.

Amazing song, the music is astounding, even before reading the lyrics and even moreso after.

City and Colour – Forgive Me Lyrics 13 years ago
I love this.. beyond words.

Emery – Fractions Lyrics 13 years ago
I think the "stopping we's and starting i's" actually means the end of the two of them.. sortive like a breakup, getting used to going at everything alone instead of together.

Aly & AJ – Potential Break Up Song Lyrics 13 years ago
I think the last verse says,

"This is the potential MAKE-UP song
Please just admit you're wrong
Which will it be?
Which will it be?"

It makes sense considering she just wants him to apologize.

Brack Cantrell – Go Tigers Lyrics 13 years ago
Lovelovelove this song.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – Vampires In Blue Dresses Lyrics 13 years ago
At first, I didn't care for this song and it grew to be one of my favorites.

I think this song has a sarcastic tone to the message.. all because he is telling her "not to give it away", then later he says he should be one of her regrets.. So I think he does want her to give it away, but to him, not anyone else.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – Bookworm Lyrics 13 years ago
Yeah, that line has made me wonder, too. But I assumed it was like this:

But you're talking to me, saying "I wish that I had died". Like she would have rather passed while giving birth to him because he is a burden.

Deas Vail – Shoreline Lyrics 13 years ago
Gorgeous song.

Deas Vail – This Place Is Painted Red Lyrics 13 years ago
The music during the "we were so lost" part is so haunting and beautiful.

Emery – So Cold I Could See My Breath Lyrics 14 years ago
"How quickly lost can pretend it's love."

Sums up the song.

Emery – The Ponytail Parade Lyrics 14 years ago
"How can you take all these days and throw them away,
As I sit here waiting for you, for you?"

Emery – Left With Alibis And Lying Eyes Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with R!p.

Good song.

Emery – Returning The Smile You Have Had From The Start Lyrics 14 years ago
"In my memory I wrote you down in ink."


Emery – The Weakest Lyrics 14 years ago
"Put on your coat (it's time to go, it's time to go)."

That part is amazing.

Between the Buried and Me – Selkies: The Endless Obsession Lyrics 14 years ago
Beginning at about "this is human life at its best.." the song and music is just amazing. The vocal editing, piano, guitars. Euphoria.

Nine Inch Nails – Me, I'm Not Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is sexy.

Becoming the Archetype – March of the Dead Lyrics 14 years ago
One of my favorite BTA songs. So creepy and gorgeous.

Becoming the Archetype – Denouement Lyrics 14 years ago
Love this.

Becoming the Archetype – Into Oblivion Lyrics 14 years ago
No comments yet? This song provokes amazement in me musically, and as for the meaning I think "I'll be right here waiting for you" sumes it up. Beautiful.

Emery – Playing With Fire Lyrics 14 years ago
"Pardon me for saying so, but you look more pitiful
Than I had ever imagined, despite perfect fashion
And your photographs depict you so differently
I always thought you would be, Some sort of match for me."

I think this happens to a lot of us, who look at someone without really knowing themmuch beforehand and imagine that they may be perfect for us, but usually the image can be a facade, and they are totally different than what you imagined.

"So let’s decide who can survive
Stomping feet and racing beats
Of hearts that don’t ever slower."

Being caught up in the moment.

"Then I’ll write letters on white paper
Expressing my deep disappointment."

I think the note of 'white paper' signifies purity and he is writing his disappointment,his mistakes on it. A way of expressing his regret as well as symbolizing that a mark has been left on said purity.

"Dripping where I stand
From my watery hands."

He takes a shower hoping to wash away the guilt of what he's just done.

"Hoping to get past the open bedroom door
Where her clothes on the floor
Remind me of our conversation
The feeling of slight hesitation
To turn out the light."

Urges to turn off the light/ignore what has just happened.

"Fourteen days now aince we started
To complicate the situation."

It's been fourteen days and the complication only grows.

"I’m not hiding, I’m just buying some time.
For us to find the back door (From this situation)."

Perhaps he hasn't spoken to her much since, caught in the disappointment of his situation, trying to find a way out.

"There’s nothing left to say
To excuse the way that I behaved.
I still feel him gripping like a stain
To this fabric
Torn at every seam
Thrown away"


"Why should I take all the blame for all my mistakes? (I’m without regret)
You were there with every promise made to break (I will not forget)
When did you become the one without regret? (I’m without regret)
Kill me, burn me down, I swear I won’t forget (I will not forget)
When did you become the one without regret (Kill me, kill me)
Kill me, burn me down, I swear I won’t forget (Kill me, kill me)."

I think he is having such a hard time with what has happened and she is not finding it to be such a deal. He finds it hard to deal with her carelessness, and ultimately I think only time will heal.

Porcelain and the Tramps – The Preyingmantis Lyrics 14 years ago
And as far as the meaning she is relating back to a time when he needed her ["I remember when you used to call me your baby"].. she took advantage of him [like a Preying Mantis], "I hung you on a limb" meaning she put him in a hard position to be in, yet he didn't mind it so much. Now she's telling him it's over and he's asking her not to go ["crying on my shoulder". But to her it's as easy as just "washing him off in the shower", ie. the relationship going down the drain.

Porcelain and the Tramps – The Preyingmantis Lyrics 14 years ago
I think it's..

"I hung you on a limb
Made you bend over
Backwards on a sin.
Quit crying on my shoulder,
There's nothing left to say.
We're beautiful garbage,
Throw it all away.
Wash you off in the shower."

Tamia – Stanger In My House Lyrics 14 years ago
Love this song, meaning is obvious.

Cold – Bleed Lyrics 14 years ago
" I will marry melody."


It Dies Today – Sacred Heart (Sacre Coeur) Lyrics 14 years ago
Hardcore Good Charlotte? To me you cannot compare any IDT lyric to a band that sings, "I rock a law suit when I'm going to court. A white suit when I'm getting divorced. A black suit at the funeral home, and my birthday suit when I'm home alone."

Just not right.

It Dies Today – My Promise Lyrics 14 years ago
Actually, you're a "guitarist."

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – A Sea Chanty of Sorts Lyrics 14 years ago
I've grown a great love for this song, it's so perfect.

Alexisonfire – Happiness By The Kilowatt Lyrics 14 years ago
The house is metaphorical happiness.. perhaps in a relationship. Decorating the home [which I think the title represents, as each light is turned on they get happier] and being happy just staying indoors all day seem perfect. Yet just one mistake could burn the house down, and I think the realization is that this was never what they wanted in the first place.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – On A Freezing Chicago Street Lyrics 14 years ago
"so if your lover should leave don't get too sad
and don't compose epic poems to win her back
'cause when your bird has flown, she'll never return home
though all your life you'll wait she never will return "

This is amazing.

Evanescence – Good Enough Lyrics 14 years ago
"and I've completely lost myself and I don't mind.."

That explains it all. For once she is happy and content in a relationship, she wonders if she is mistaken, "shouldn't let you conquer me competely.." but she cannot deny it.
