Atreyu – The Theft lyrics
He bends and he breaks
If he gives they will take away
His passion, his pain, his grace

He exhales,
A thousand black flowers explode
Into butterflies as they're away

Rip them out, take them,
Burn coals as they crush him and
Leave nothing
That resembles a soul of a man
(See him numb, see him crushed)
See him numb, See him crushed
Rip them out, take them
Burn to coals as they crush and
Leave nothing
That resembles a soul of a man
(Leave him numb. leave him crushed)
Leave him numb, leave him crushed

Took the fire inside
One too many times
He's burning over and out now,
Now he fails
Up against the raging tides,
No more fights
Everything you ever wanted to see,
See it in his eyes
One more time, one more time

Climb down to test the waters,
My hands feel like they're rusting away yeah,
So I'll pace around like a lamb before the slaughter
I'll stay here as long as you let me,
Decisions been made obvious so I will return
Where I started I'll stay here
Unfinished
I'll wither away

Rip them out, take them,
Burn coals as they crush him
Leave nothing
That resembles a soul of a man
(See him numb, See him crushed)
See him numb, See him crushed
Rip them out, take them
Burn to coals as they crush him and
Leave nothing
That resembles a soul of a man
(Leave him numb, Leave him crushed)
Leave him numb, leave him crushed

    Please don't take the music video as the theme of the song, sure its whats the songs about but not entirely. Its about someone who goes through too much for too long that the pain and sadness start to eat away at his soul. Whether its over a girl or everything through out his life. This song reminds me of my ex girlfriend, she took my heart out and chopped it up to feed to her dog.
