Can you tell from the look in our eyes?
We're going nowhere
We live our lives like we're ready to die
We're going nowhere

Can you tell from the look in our eyes?
We're going nowhere
We live our lives like we're ready to die
We're going no where

I thought I'd buried you
And covered the tracks

You'll have to take this with your cold dead hands
I thought I'd buried you
Where sin can never die.

I thought I cut you loose
Severed the feeling
I stepped through the crack as you clamp to my shirt
I thought I'd buried you
Where sin can never die.

Can you tell from the look in our eyes,
We're going nowhere.
We live our life like we're ready to die,
We're going nowhere.

You can run but you'll never escape,
Over and over again
.
Will we ever see the end?
We're going no where
.

THIS IS SEMPITERNAL!

Will we ever see the end?
This is sempiternal
Over and over
Again and again


Rise from the dead you say,
Secrets don't sleep till they're took to the grave,
Signal the sirens,
Rally the troops,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It's the moment of truth.

Can you tell from the look in our eyes?
We're going nowhere.
We live our lives like we're ready to die,
We're going nowhere.

You can run but you'll never escape,
Over and over again.
Will we ever see the end?
We're going no where.
(X2)

THIS IS SEMPITERNAL!

Will we ever see the end?
This is sempiternal
Over and over
Again and again

    Any one who claims music like this promotes sucide or anger obvioulsy doesn't suffer from either of those problems. I am a long time recovering drug addict with a lot of under lying mental probems and I can honestly say since I've started makeing changes in my life and my habits I have run into some demons I didn't even know I had (suicide, depression & anxiety) listening to "realism" of nearly all bmth lyrics makes my problems float away even if it is only for 3-5 mins at a time. I wont agree or disagree with john this isn't there greatest album but its still "real" as f*k and s***s on any mainstream s*t I've heard. I think everyone interprets each song diffrent depending on there circumstances but I for one "live for music" good bad or mediocre, music is my new "drug" and addiction, I couldn't be more happy that there isn't a rehab for this;). "all music saved me" punk, pop, rock, grunge, rap, dance, ska, metal, hip hop. Peace guys & gals.

    Omg if you don't like it why are you bothering to listen to it! They are a great band that support many people these band members actually take their time to help and talk to their fans, unlike some of the top artists that barely spend two minutes with them. Many of the fans of this band can really connect to these lyrics through emotion it doesn't affect people negatively people don't do crazy things when they listen to it. A lot of people struggling to keep living in a world where they don't feel wanted or needed listen to this sort of music. They can relate to the song referring to demons because, that is what many people believe are pulling them down and stopping them from what they want to do, it is a word that describes many disorders or bullies. Also the way bring me the horizon perform their songs show so much effort as well as emotion that they put into it, for example the way he moves around the stage when singing represents the true feeling he is putting into his songs. Many of the artists related to bring me the horizon have many painful experiences in their past which pushes them into helping others. The fan bases of such bands are so supportive because the so called 'violent' mosh pit helped a disabled boy nearer the stage so he could have the best experience. I'm not telling you to like them, or immediately start listening to them I'm just asking you to respect different genres of music because if you want to criticize people then you should at least try to understand them first.

    John, you clearly never had any depression problems in your life. Lets see what you think of BMTH when you are facing suicide and the only thing you can turn to is your music. BMTH really helped me and basically saved my life. If you know nothing about what you are saying don't say anything at all.

    Okay. I wouldn't normally do something like this but I just wanted to state my discontent at the discovery of this band but more importantly, this song. A. These lyrics are terribly shallow and just really uninspired. B. What does this have to do with Metal Gear Solid? Why is this song called shadow moses? What is happening to the music industry? Why am I even writing this when I could be listening to good music? Good day to you all. I hope to never hear from this band, or any of you, ever again.
