So the light now is my weapon
Like a bush dried, withered in the sun
With this spark I'll go up in flames
I lay my guns down but they're too small to see
It's kinda cute how I resent to be
Everything but the instrument I am

Rage or happiness?
So let it enfold you

A perfect life is what I am after
My first name won't be my last one
Let the light just drip into your eyes

So it's true my words are contrived
I tell lies just to get into your mind
I'm as fake as a widow's smile
This mask of glass is what I choose to wear
So I won't ever have the need to bear
To tell the truth to anyone but me

Rage or happiness?
So let it enfold you

A better life is what I am after
My first name won't be my last one
Let the light just drip into your eyes
And I am dead, your eyes are light

I'm just a bad actor stuck with a shitty script
All of my lines are cheap and the cast is weak
There was no music for the first time I got kissed
There was no femme fatale my mistress wasn't rich
So I've been formatted to fit your tv screen
The film went straight to tape
I'll bow out quietly
So quietly, so quietly

Please do this now I beg
Duct tape my arms and legs
Throw me into the sea
(Please save me, please save me)
Please do this now I beg
Duct tape my arms and legs
Throw me into the sea
(Please save me, please save me)
Now watch the waves eat me
Setting my cold heart free
I'll wash ashore in weeks
(You can't save me, can't save)
Now watch the waves eat me
Setting my cold heart free
I'll wash ashore in weeks
(Can't save me)
You can't save me now

    General CommentSuch a good song. I'm suprised nobody has commented about it yet. I especially like the part that says "I'm as fake as a widow's smile This mask of glass is what i choose to wear".

    General CommentThis song is about contradictions. Alot of people will change themseleves to fit in and try to acheive a better life, and the cliche is to "be yourself"
    In this song, he wants a "better life", but he can't achieve genuine happiness because he's "as fake as a widows smile" the mask being glass means to me about being able to still see through a fake, so the mask really serves no purpose, people will be able to see right thruogh it. The rest all fits into the metaphor,

    "the light now is my weapon", you can't see anything in the darkness, so he uses it to see through to other fakes, which he is, he says that "It’s kinda cute how I resent to be
    Everything but the instrument I am"

    General Commentno, this song is called Let it Unfold you.

    my favorite part is this:
    "I’m just a bad actor stuck with a shitty script
    All of my lines are cheap and the cast is weak
    There was no music for the first time I got kissed
    There was no femme fatal my mistress wasn't rich
    So I’ve been formatted to fit your TV screen
    The film went straight to tape
    I'll bow out quietly
    So quietly "

    General Commentim glad to see at least someone has read the damn poem, im hoping. to the little fucknuggets above, the song is called Let it Enfold You. you retards could have figured this out in one of three areas
    1) the cover of the damn CD
    2)a simple google search to see the tracks on the cd
    3)the header on the web browser

    hoenstly, take some time to read the poem. its about 200 lines long, and amazing. basically, the poem speaks about forsaking corruption and evil, and living for the small, beautiful things in life. its written by charles bukowski. some ofthe lines of the song are almost taken straight from the poem, so im thinking it deals with the same theme. even in death, the singer (buddy) is able to find peace in the serenity of washing ashore. theres another great poem about the same type of serenity and peace caleld gift by miwolsz (i know i didnt spell that right, buts its polish and hard to spell off the top of your head).

    General CommentI noticed someone did corrections already, but I thought that I would as well, seeing as there are a LOT of errors in this song.

    "So the lie now is my weapon
    Like a bush dried and withered in the sun"

    "I'd lay my guts out, but they're too small to see
    It’s kinda cute how I pretend to be
    Everything but the instrument I am."

    "Peace or happiness?"

    "A birth to life is what I am after"

    "So I won’t ever have the need to bear
    The total truth to anyone but me"

    "I'll wash ashore in weeks"

    Sorry, I just get peeved when lyrics are wrong.
