False tales lies of a washed up prom queen
Why'd you tell me everything was fine?
Everything was okay?

Get on your knees!
Oh, tear me up
No, everything's dead inside
Oh, you should've told me, at least I would've known
No, you could've told me and carved it in my bones

Tear out my eyes, remove my gift of sight
Proves ever cursing, the light won't find us here
Painted red my eyes are burning
And still you hide behind the waves

Your silence is haunting
Your words relentless, burying in
My heart betrays me for a last first kiss good-bye
Fall asleep, jar one eye, jar one eye

Spilling every lie you've spilled before
Still I'm not forgiving you
What's happened between us, what can I give to save us
Being righteous isn't quite enough
What's happened between us, what can I give to save me

These oceans are far between our hearts when breathing has got too hard (x2)

Scream with the voice of an angel
Lie in the eyes of a gospel
Smile in the face of your victims, smile for me
This is my last request to you
Hold my breath
I was clutching on to disaster
Hold my breath

    Not a huge fan of this band, but this song tugs at my heartstrings. I love danny's vocals. So much emotion.

    He's tired of having his loved one lie to him. He's done with being lied to and is tired of feeling "dead", because he can never help her.

    This is clearly about him looking to god for help or answers and getting nothing back... "this is my last request to you... Hold my breath"

    You may as well kill me because neither you or can do anything to prevent it in the first place, especially since you screwed me over, making me one of your victims.

    I just did a cover of this song. :p it is remarkably difficult to get the low screams but the song has such a great meaning. :)
