Fragile leaves hit the ground.
The cold air drifts into my lungs.
I see your face through the fog.
Reminds me of the dreams you lost.
I can see it in your eyes.
You're broken down;
Your hands are tied.
I can feel it in my side.
Over and over and over I've tried.
You're broken down;
Your hands are tied.
And I know you cannot hide.
Over and over and over I've tried.
It broke my heart.
It felt so good to see you.
I've never been one to put my trust in.
When did I become so weak, or have I always been? I can't put all this back in place.
This gaping hole in my chest is filled with deceit.
I fear that all my cries fell upon deaf ears.
I caress flesh with severed nerves.
I go veiled in darkness and disease.
This November swallows me whole.
And this may be the closest thing that you'll ever receive to an apology.
I close my eyes and I can see you dead.

    General Commentshane as a teenager walked in on his bestfriend "with" shanes girlfriend. Shane felt that he could trust this friend with his life. And was in disbelief that a best friend can do something so coldhearted. Shane turned to this friend whenever he was going through hard times, but after the insident, he realized that all his cries fell upon deaf ears (his friend wasnt realy caring/listening)

    General CommentI'm so in love with this song. I feel very emotional when I listen to it. "I can see it in your eyes, your broken down your hands are tied. I can feel it in my side, over and over and over I've tried" I feel a sad vision of someone in trouble and wanting to help them but not able to. I'm probably wrong but I feel that's what this song is about.

    General Commentis this fact or did you get that from the lyrics? Cause thats a pretty far shot if you got that from the lyrics, I think you would have went into too much detail. He's upset about something of course, like he was betrayed. But the part that confuses me is "This may be the closest thing that you'll ever receive to an apology" Does that mean he did something wrong too? but if that is fact then I guess the lyrics fit

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs of theirs. The beginning is an amazing introduction that leads to such a powerful sound that never stops to give me chills.

    I find myself relating to these lyrics: "i fear that all my cries fell upon deaf ears" because people nowadays lack compassion. And no one seems to care about anything or anyone but themselves.

    General Commentthis song has a much deeper meaning to me. whether the first comment was true or not, this is is what it means to me.

    the first time i listened to this song, it was on a day where one of my best friend was talking about suicide. and i kept telling her how wonderful she was, but she didn't believe that people would miss her. this is how it reminds me of a person contemplating suicide and a friend trying to help

    "the dreams you've lost" part would be the dissapointments that faced the person in question

    "i can't put all this back in place back in place" you couldn't fix it for them.

    "i can see it in your eyes you're broken down, your hands are tied. i can feel it in my side. over and over and over i've tried" you can see that the person is depressed and can't do anything about it, and you try to help, but it doesn't work

    "i fear that all my cries fell upon deaf ears"
    you're afraid that no matter what you tell them, they'll commit suicide anyway

    "i close my eyes and i can see you dead" you picture the worst.

    so to me, it sounds like suicide.
    (and for the record, my friend didn't go through with it, thank God)

    General Commenton the dvd that came with discovering the waterfront there's a live performance where he dedicates november to bayside

    maybe not specifically about john beatz, but maybe about someone who died?
