I thought I could hear you
Echoing words of denial
Careful not to feel you near me
Clawing out at what you call life
Hold on to what you want, hold on to what you have
Hold on to where you are, hold on to where
I face the change, I've tasted pain, digging a hole, now take the blame
I fell aside, I cast away, covered in shame, now take the blame
Thought I was beneath you
Crawling in your bed of lies
You infected me with envy
Tiny daggers in my eye
Hold on to what you want, hold on to what you have
Hold on to where you are, hold on to where
I face the change, I've tasted pain, digging a hole, now take the blame
I fell aside, I cast away, covered in shame, now take the blame
Thought I could believe you selling me your big surprise
Only needing one more victim, tearing down your one disguise
Hold on to what you want, hold on to what you have
Hold on to where you are, hold on to where
I face the change, I've tasted pain, digging a hole, now take the blame
I fell aside, I cast away, covered in shame, now take the blame

    this is an awsome song! i cant believe nobody put any comments about it...well to me its about a break up in a relashionship, where one person is saying "we broke up, (or you dumped me/i dumped you, whatever) and everything went wrong, it was painfull for me, you are a bad person, you lie 'crawling in your bed of lies' so now you have to take the blame for it, because you know this is all your fault" amazing song...

    Ya Eviscerator GK is my #1 favourite band and I can not believe how underrated they are! Everyone I talk to says they're a heavy metal fan and not 1 of them listens to GK! It's weird because they are soooo great!

    Oh my gosh....i love this song. I think it's saying that "hey we broke up and its 100% your fault. And how much it hurt me and you have to take the blame for it!" Wonderful...

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
