about

Faith
-------
I had gone through the most agonizing breakup in my head. This was one of the tougher ones to record. With over 400 scratch vocal takes because i couldn't maintain composure or couldn't bring myself to say what i needed to say. I don't think i've ever had such a hard time recording a song than i did with this one.

lyrics

Endless misdirection, that’s what my words are.
A forked tongue, spitting lies upon ashes; I once burned bright, I once wanted nothing more than to bring upon an endless flame. I’ll stand here and bury all of these memories, of happiness and hope and pray to god that you’ll wash away when the light clears.
And who am I to say that I wont waste away, until there’s nothing left of me to give. I carried you through the dark and now i’ll be left here.
I will make the blind see what they choose to forget.
I will make sure you know this, i’m sure that you’ll notice.
I carried you through the dark and now i’m a part of it.
I’ve spent way too many nights trying to figure out, how to neglect all emotions that come when you’ve shown up. I will recognize that no light can save me. Yet faith has only gotten me this far.
So i’ll keep spewing my venom but i will be wary of the poison I've chosen, cautious and noxious. I’ll watch the life leave your eyes when you realize that I've been slowly injecting a lethal dosage.
And who am I to say that i wont waste away. Slowly following the footsteps that I swore I would never acknowledge.
I’ve spent way too many nights trying to figure out, how to neglect all emotions that come when you’ve shown up. I will recognize that no light can save me. Yet faith has only gotten me this far.
So at the end of the day when all has wasted away, I’ll look down and say. “You brought yourself here, and I will bury you.” Yet the mirror has never looked so fucking luxurious.

Chris Gonzalez for completely shredding that second verse. Insane in my opinion. Great friend and he's exceptionally good at Smash 4.
