"With A Thousand Words To Say But One" as written by Paul Wayne Burnette, John Henry, Kristopher Norris, Ryan Littlefield Parrish and Michael Schleibaum....
and to reflect is to regret throwing it all away and
apathy my one way street it took so much from
me separated by this divide i created through my
fears and in your tears you tried to show blind eyes
and tell deaf ears if we can make it through the
landslide standing we'll lift each other up to see the
bliss on the horizon been looking in from the outside
lately i've seen who i used to be and it's not me and
we can keep healing and we can keep holding on i
just want to take you where out time won't waste
anymore through the mountains on the water we'll
stay engulfed in one another and when i can wake
up to see the sunrise in your eyes then we'll finally
be free and i'll know i've made it home so lets go
out west and bask in theovercast and walking
through the rain we'll see the beauty on life again

    General Commenti really like the hint of 3rd person perspective the song creates. its like he's on the outside looking at his own feelings, and actions. he knows what happiness is, and he knows his faults in the relationship. i think we all have the essence of a split personality at times, and i think this is what the song is addressing.
    i often think the relationship between a boy and girl is used to tell the story of a bigger picture in darkest hours work, and this is a prime example. its about stepping out of yourself and looking at within you.
    just an amazing song with beautiful imagery.
    a thousand words to say but one = sorry??

    My InterpretationThe way I look at this amazing song is he's talking about him and a woman he loves. The first part of the song is about the hardships they've faced in the past, the rest of the song is about running away with the girl, leaving their problems behind them, and being together forever, isolated from the reality they once knew.

    General CommentHOLY FUCK! Terrific song, probably the best yet lyrics-wise from Darkest Hour. I'm surprised there's no comments yet on this.

    General CommentThis song truly is incredible. I'm not usually into hardcore screaming music like Darkest Hour, where they scream pretty much non-stop, but when a friend gave me Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation the music enslaved me. Undoing Ruin was even better than Hidden Hands, and this song is my favorite on the album. The lyrics are outstanding, to say the least, and the instruments are well-done, especially the drums! Some of my favorite lyrics ever, and that says alot.

    General CommentYes, the lyrics are amazing but no one has succeeded in discussing the "meaning" of them.Could this be about a past relationship that has gone wrong, but they don't want to dwell on it instead they want to grow together and make it through thick and thin by eachother's sides?
    what do you think?
