House full of roses
A letter on the stairs
A tape full of messages for anyone who cares
Collage of broken words
And stories full of tears
Remembering your life
'Cause we wish that you were here
Nothing is harder
Than to wake up all alone
Realize it's not okay
It's the end of all you've known
Time keeps passing by
But it seems I'm frozen still
Scars are left behind
But some too deep to feel
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We're all just victims of a crime
When all is gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
We're all just victims of a crime
Some days you'll find me
In a place I like to go
Ask questions to myself
Bout the things I'll never know
What's left to find
Cause I need a little more
I need a little time
Can we even up the score?
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We're all just victims of a crime
When all is gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
We're all just victims of a crime
And nothing lasts forever
For all good things it's true
I'd rather trade it all
While somehow saving you
It must have been the season
That threw us out of line
Once I stood so tall
Now I'm searching for a sign
So don't need your salvation
With promises unkind
And all the speculations
Save it for another time
'Cause we all need a reason
A reason just to stay
And Some just can't be bothered
To stick around another day
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We've all been victims of a crime
When all is gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
We've all been victims of a crime
Victims of a crime
Living with this crime
I'm missing you (x4)

    Well clearly this song is dedicated to the Rev... And honestly, I can't think of a better way for him to be remembered.. Immortalized. R.I.P. Rev, and may you never be forgotten.

    Beauiful song...
    Just gorgeous! It describes about the rev, where the a7x wished that if he might be here, but again they made up themselves by sayin', nothing last forever... And, this song itself signifies in the end part, how much they miss the rev...
    Above all, let his soul rest in peace, amen..

    For some reason, this makes me think that this is about someone recovering from a loved one who was killed in the 911 attacks, but that's just me. I don't know if maybe Matt lost a loved one in the 911 attacks, 'not sure. But it is most likely about the rev, but if you think about it, it does kind of make sense if it was about 911.

    I think this song is about losing someone that meant a lot to you and what happens in the day's after they die, the grief and the memories that you sometimes wished never happened but they did and even though for the first few days you feel like you could have lived without them you couldn't have...

    I believe this song is about losing a friend or loved one, but obviously they changed it to relate to jimmy. At first glance to me, it seems as though it literally is about some one being killed due to a crime, or being jailed, and the pain it puts others through.
