"Cries In Vain" as written by and Matthew/james Tuck....
Lord knows I've cried a thousand tears tonight
But nothing seams to quench the first
You keep on craving
But now I need a answer to my question
Your not there so I think to listen

Has no one told you
Your cry's are all in vain
And everyone keeps tryin' take that all away
Has no one told you
Your cry's are all in vain
Your cry's!

Lord I can't describe the look inside my eyes
The more I try to look away the more I'm staring
But now I need a answer to my question
Your not there so I think to listen
Listen

Has no one told you
Your cries are all in vain
And everyone keeps tryin' take that all away
Has no one told you
Your cries are all in vain
Your cries!

Your cries in vain [Repeat x4]
I look away!!! Way way way

Has no one told you
Your cries are all in vain
And everyone keeps tryin' take that all away
Has no one told you
Your cries are all in vain
Your cries!

Has nobody told you when you away
The stories they told you still run through your veins
Nobody told you when you away
The stories they told you still run through your veins
Run through your veins

    General Commentthis is my favourite song at the moment, its absolutely excellent.
    But i take the meaning the literally. To me it sounds like he is yelling at God for not being there when he needs Him, but at the same time he's talking to the people that still follow God that He isnt listening and so 'Your cries are all in vain'

    General Commentthis band is awsome. definitely going somewhere. They are the new beginning of metal. I think this song is about how no one listens to him and when they do they dont understand properely and how they say lies. At the beginning theres a relation to god but i think its just a metaphor to all the people who thinkg theyre mighty and thing theyre the top of the world

    General Commenti reckon that this song is a bout a man praying to god but god dosent answer him and he is crying cuase wat he was praying for wasnt answered and the "cries in vain"bit is non belivers saying ur wasting ur time or ur cries are in vain...but he keeps praying and he dosent answer again"but now i need an answer...... and ur not there "...god aint there again...and The more i try to look away the more i’m staring"" no matter how much he trys to not belive in god the more he doees so he keeps praying to god but he dosent answer"...
    and the stories he has been bought up with still run through his viens like he belives in the so dearly...
    well taht was my first attempt of the meaning of a song...mybad if it is totally offtrack

    General CommentI think this is just the band telling everyone to basically put up or shut up, there's no point complaining, it isn't going to help, either you sort something out or you forget about it.
    I've had The Poison on repeat on my PC for 3 days and I still get freaking lightning down my spine when I hear the chorus of every song.

    Mark my words.... You think this band are big, well they're going to get a hell of a lot bigger.
