about

Pretty self-explanatory as far as meaning and symbolism, this song essentially wrote itself in a car that was driving too fast. A speeding ticket was given, but the song remained. It should be noted that this was written back in 2000 or so, before the whole emo thing came around and made sensitive, self-deprecating lyrics something of a fad...

lyrics

Hear these vacant lies and hollow words
Machine talk, a mockery of life
And I have condemned myself to burn
I know that I'll break you once again
Tears that fall never hit the ground
Caught up in a web of my own lies
Now it seems that I'm that evil one
That same *^&%#$ that we'd feared all along

She had no one to run from but me
Now she's looking for someone
The ground rushes up to meet me now

Cords that bind snapping with the weight
The blood flows from all the opened scars
Hide your face lest I strike again
In orbit I shall cause no pain to you

She had no one to run from but me
Now she's looking for someone
The stars beyond embrace me as I fly
