I will not be part of your rusting machine, I will not burn as your fuel.
You are the one drowning in your conviction.
I am not host to them.
You call it your right.
I call it your weakness.
The wound won't clot until the blood stops.
it has to stop.

    hey is this a straight edge song? It sounds like it, I saw a picture of a Converge demo tape and it had the x sandwich on it, so they had to have something to do with the edge? It tottally has to be, then again it might not be, who knows.

    I love that part when they scream "you call it your right..." Jacob's screaming on this album IMO is a lot better than the screaming on the new albums because you can actually understand.

    While I'm sure that some of the members of Converge are straight edge, I don't think that this song is about straight edge. While the lyrics could suggest that it is ("You call it your right, I call it your weakness"), I think they're written from a more general point of view in regards to destructive lifestyles. I could be wrong though and the song may in fact be about edge.
