My head will not rest on this pillow
As it's gripped in my arms tonight
Like reality, too tight

If a dream could last forever
I would hold you here
Time need not freeze, I need not fear

This world inside
Is a world I have longed to find

And I will not be afraid to love
I will not be afraid to lose what I once deprived myself of

My teardrops have salt-stained this pillow
As it's loosened from my weakened clutch
By the sun's light, too much

There's a hope today
That I'll find a way
This dream of life unreal to me

Sometimes I run and sometimes I crawl
Sometimes I fly and sometimes, I'm gonna fall
But this dream of mine will not change at all

    General CommentI'd say progressive hardcore or metalcore, but yes they have a lot of math style in their music.

    I'm not trying to be a dick but to generalize:
    deathcore is bring me the horizon
    mathcore is dillinger escape plan
    grindcore could be anywhere from nasum to insect warfare (NOT THE LOCUST)
    metalcore (metal + hardcore) usually isn't as crazy as btbam it just has a lot of melodic parts and for some bands-breakdowns (all that remains, protest the hero, SOME as I lay dying, august burns red, parkway drive)

    just my 2 cents

    General CommentThey're not even deathcore. Progressive/techincal metal/hardcore, or just plain progressive/techincal, is probably the best term to describe them.

    However, to describe this song, I'd use: surreal, beautiful, and serence.

    General CommentI may be a little late to this, but BTBAM is most definitely Progressive Metalcore, and always have been.

    And, Tommy isn't singing in this song, at least not the lead part, their lead guitarist Paul is singing.

    General CommentIt really is amzing when such a hardcore band can do a song like this. It proves how talented they are. They are showing that they can actually sing. Don't get me wrong, the rest of the cd is awesome.

    General CommentThis song was actually inspired by a homeless man named Shevanel that taught the writer of this song some things about life that he had been holding out on, and things that were important to learn. It's simply an epiphany. An epiphany written quite beautifully I must say.

    General Comment"This song is about recognizing what you want in life and being courageous enough to go after it, regardless of the sacrafices you may have to make.

    Taken from the bands website.

    Needless to say, this is an amazing song. I love it, the lyrics are so inspiring and meaningful. Beautiful, just beautiful.
