I felt so alone
You left feeling so empty and needing
Can't see the glitter in you
You called me all the time
Hiding behind your lies materialistic

Go away
You don't know what it's like to be dead inside
You called him a friend to help you get through it
I see your true face now
Well my tears are gone, I am happy now
Thanks for making it clear

Go away
You don't know what it's like to be dead inside(Repeat 2times)
I am dead to you
You take my heart and used it as a tool
I wish that this would just go away
You can't find love you can't cry tears
(Low Growl)

You won't be crying alone
Dead Inside (repeat 7 times)
Who are you today, another face erased
(Low Growl)

Dead Inside(Deep Growl)
You don't know what its like to be Dead Inside
You don't know what its like to be Dead Inside
Who are you

Your dead inside
Dead inside!
Your Dead Inside

    What can anybody say about this song? The lyrics speak for themselves. This is simply an amazing song, and it's something virtually everyone can relate to. Chimaira are good about writing emotional songs without coming off as too bitchy (ahem Limp Bizshit could learn a lesson or two from these guys.)

    This song kicks total ass. What can I say? I love it the lyrics got to me first...Emo Kid but this shit totally rocks. I like all of Chimaira's songs. Sometimes I wonder why they aren't more widely know...least in my part of town or whatever

    Great song, I love it. I don't know much about these guys, but if any of their other songs are as good as this one then yeah they must kick ass.

    A song pretty much anyone can relate to.

    the only small beef i ever have w/ Chimaira is the repetetion of lyrics. normally i can get past that just cuz i love the hard in your face music. good stuff.

    I have to agree with kaptn_pance, that some of their lyrics are a bit repetitive. That said, I love this band, they are incredible live. Me and my mates went to see them on the NWOAHM tour, a few days ago and we met Mark Hunter and my mate has Mark's face tattooed on his chest, so Mark took his photo and said they would put it on their site.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
