"Drown The City" as written by and Brian Michael/miller White....
Lie to me
I won't lie
Tape your mouth shut
Lie to me
I won't lie
Swallow your tongue

Forget it all I have you buried in my walls
Ill use your skin to cover up my scares

The place you lay in a bloody hall of fame
The ropes that tied your hands right by your side
The place you lay in a bloody hall of fame
The ropes that tied your hands right by your side

So now your screaming at the top of your lungs
Hoping for someone to come
Hoping they’ll bring a gun
To inflict all the pain
I caused upon you.

I won't die I will lie
The only problem with the story carved on your chest
Is its hard to read when your missing your ribs

The place you lay in a bloody hall of fame
The ropes that tied your hands right by your side
The place you lay in a bloody hall of fame
The ropes that tied your hands right by your side

So now your screaming at the top of your lungs
Hoping for someone to come
Hoping they’ll bring a gun
To inflict all the pain
I caused upon you.

I won't die I will lie
The only problem with the story carved on your chest
Is its hard to read when your missing your ribs

So now your screaming at the top of your lungs
Hoping for someone to come
Hoping they’ll

    General CommentJust recently found this band, i love their style, very unique, only band that even comes to mind when i hear this band is mewithoutYou, but their style is one of a kind! Soft meaningful vocals mixed with some screaming (outdoor screaming as i like to call it) and some soft guitar chords :) All around great music! This is also my favorite song by them! :D

    General Commentlols, but seriously

    i think it's about a person who gave up his true friends (lied to them etc) for the next best thing in his eyes, and then he regrets it, but no one's there for him

    General CommentI think these are the real lyrics:

    Lie to me,
    I won't lie,
    Tape your mouth shut,
    Lie to me,
    I won't lie,
    Swallow your tongue

    Forget it all,
    I'll have you buried in my walls,
    I'll use your skin to cover up my scars

    The place you lay bloody but alive,
    The ropes, they tied your hands right by your side,
    The place you lay bloody but alive,
    The ropes, they tied your hands right by your side

    So now your screaming at the top of your lungs,
    Hoping for someone to come,
    Hoping they’ll bring a gun,
    To inflict all the pain,
    I caused upon you,
    I caused upon you

    I won't die,
    I won't die,
    I won't lie,
    The only problem with the story carved on your chest,
    It's hard to read when your missing your ribs

    The place you lay bloody but alive,
    The ropes, they tied your hands right by your side

    So now your screaming at the top of your lungs,
    Hoping for someone to come,
    Hoping they’ll bring a gun,
    To inflict all the pain,
    I caused upon you,
    I caused upon you

    I won't die,
    I won't die,
    I won't die,
    I won't lie,
    I won't die,
    I won't lie,
    The only problem with the story carved on your chest,
    It's hard to read when your missing your ribs

    So now your screaming at the top of your lungs,
    Hoping for someone to come,
    Hoping they’ll bring a gun,
    To inflict all the pain,
    I caused upon you,
    I caused upon you

    So now your screaming at the top of your lungs,
    Waiting for someone to come,
    Hoping they’ll bring a gun,
    To inflict all the pain,
    I caused upon you,
    I caused upon you

    Watch me cut my throat,
    Watch me cut my throat,
    If you want me skin deep, you better act now,
    If you want me skin deep, you better act now

    General Commenti saw the video for this,
    and yet it didn't make sense.

    anyone seen it?
