I've known faces that have disappeared in time
Find me wrapped in glass and slowly soaked in lime
All My friends have pictures made to make you cry
I've seen this and wondered what I've done to calcify

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

I can't stand to see your thalidomide robot face
Don't even try it! You had to be a liar just to
Infiltrate me - I'm still drownding

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

...Take...this...away...
I can feel it on my mouth
I can taste you on my fingers
I can hear you like the holy ghost
And kill you if you get to close

    In Left Behind, there is alot of metaphors of Corey attempting to explain what is happening to him. The basis of the song is that a dear friend of Corey was never actually there. The person was always trying to be someone else, and never said what they wanted to, did what they wanted to, etc. Because of this, Corey cannot deal with it and is ending their relationship. He is extremely depressed and is not too stable of himself and is giving the statement that if the person tries to get close to him again, that he will take drastic actions. "I think it is about a guy who has seen his friend change but he has'nt changed with him. His friend got into drugs and became addicted. The more he got into drugs the more he left his friend behind. He left the guy for the people that they use to be against. Finally he could not take it ne more and e seaks revenge."

    "I think its about this guy who used to have these friends, but unlike them, he doesnt grow up. So, they ignore him and he slips away from them. Then hes filled with loneliness. Key lyrics: (I ignore you), I feel it all
