You son of man I am here as a witness
You son of man can't you see what burns inside me
This fire will consume as the flames purify
With the peace that passes understanding
This is my outcry
From dust to dust we will return
The flesh is temporary
The soul is eternal
Son of man can't you see
Son of man can't you save yourself

    General CommentJust because they have a different singer doesn't mean they have changed "so much." Also, i don't understand why you think they have become "radio friendly." Maybe you have only listened to the title track and forgot about the rest of the songs on TEOH. Sure, it's not as good as AOJB but I don't think AOJB can be topped. Just because Howard's voice is cleaner than Jesse's it doesn't mean they are "radio friendly" as you put it. Killswitch still owns all.
