It seems such a waste to stand still
remembering time kills us, watching stones.
Mantras repeated, never believed,
lifetimes and lifetimes spent deceived.
We'll decide amongst ourselves where we'll hang when we've died.
Leave your flowers at the door, all manner of colors makes it easy to hide.
Pull this life apart.
Dissect each piece;
microscopic metronome to collect the last rhythm and curious eyes
we beg to know fall
warmly among us aglow with knowing.
Fly the fields to avoid the debts
We forget we are owing,
We forget that we are owing.

And I'll steal each breath, sputtered out.
As defiant words stain me, rearrange me.
And stamp me with doubt

Fuck off, fuck off
Because I don't need you.
We'll decide amongst ourselves where we'll hang when we've died.
Leave your flowers at the door, the colors make it easy to hide.
You live through our minutes, divided yet shared.
We dwell on impermanence, we survive you, yet we are scared.
Pull this life apart with knowing.

    General CommentTo sedated_emotions:

    I said that too after the first few times I listened to the CD the first few times. Then I realized:it doesn't sound bad, but it definately doesn't sound like their old stuff. One reason is because Josh isn't there anymore. I have no clue why Billy used effects in his voice. However, this about this: how long would you really enjoy them if they sounded the same every record?

    On the other hand, congrats on being a little scene conformist. It's not about what you want everything to sound like. As I've said, it's better to be different. As long as there is some insight, significance, and effort in the songs, they shouldn't be dissed or rejected (unless you think you can do better, of course). Now, go look up "screamo" on urbandictionary and make your playlist for the week.
