10 Years – Dying Youth Lyrics 2 years ago
The lyrics above are incorrect.
Here are the correct lyrics straight out of the album booklet:


Deep under the surface I keep the love
Older and aware of a hidden universe
I've prayed to be young, and prayed to be inspired
The words of your tongue blister like fire

[Chorus:]
I can't let you go, slow down
Don't leave
Dying days of my youth
Overtake me

There is a glimpse of death in your eyes
I am not prepared to let out those cries
I've prayed to stay young, but soon will be expired
So lost in denial

[Chorus]

Breach in her womb, sheltered from strife
Bearing the gifts, and burdens of life
I've prayed to stay young, but soon will be expired
An age of innocence, long since gone

[Chorus]

Those who are looking backwards
Chose to live as statues
Frozen, fractured, youthful laughter, fades

[Chorus x2]

10 Years – Dying Youth Lyrics 2 years ago
How does anyone get this to be about a couple or a relationship?
You clearly haven't followed these guys from their very early days. Jesse's lyrics are much enigmatic than that—but out of all of their songs, Dying Youth is perhaps the most self-explanatory.

Like the title suggests, the song is about getting older and realising that you're slowly losing hold of something precious, something you'll never get back: your youth. It's about self-reflection, reflecting over life and acknowledging that you, too, will cease to exist some day ('older and aware of a hidden universe').

"I can't let you go, slow down, don't leave."
The chorus is directed at youth. Here, youth is subjectified. He's not ready to let go of those joyful days, yet he's come to the realisation that ultimately everyone's powerless against time;

"Those who are looking backwards chose to live as statues".
So the only thing we can do is to not wail over our lost days and not get stuck in past mistakes (hence the 'live as statues') but to forgive ourselves, move forward and acknowledge that life will end for everyone, we'll just have to pray "to be inspired" and at the least pray to stay young at mind.

10 Years – Frailty Lyrics 4 years ago
Year 2015 and I'm still digging this song.

Anyways...did it occur to anyone that when he says "chimera" he means satan?
I don't think the title is implying frailty as in a physical condition, like cancer, but more like frailty of mind and morals as in how we sometimes know something is morally wrong yet yield to the temptation of comitting that act ("turning around, crawling with vengeance, tempts me...")
Seeing that a lot of Jesse's lyrics make references to the bible it wouldn't surprism me if this one had some kind of deep religious/spiritual meaning to it, but it's pretty hard to tell exactly what...by far, the most cryptic of Jesse's lyrics if you ask me.

What?! Did they put the lyrics up on their MySpace? Oh, thank God, at last! I was going insane, srsly, had a hard time finding out what he was exactly saying, had to listen very carefully, geez hehe...
But anyways, I've corrected the few mistakes, so now it should be okay.
