Prey

Album: The Autumn Effect (2005)
  • One at a time
    One in the same
    One is the time
    That remains
    Snip back the weak
    Before they give away
    I'm twisted in knots from
    Hard work and strain

    I've been waiting so long for this time
    I'm terrified
    Blind in ways I've never realized
    I don't mind

    All at a time
    All in the same
    Califormula
    I've become prey
    Strolling down
    In my face
    These tears I'm not crying
    This will not kill me

    I've been waiting so long for this time
    I'm terrified
    Blind in ways I've never realized
    I don't mind

    To do this right
    We must realize
    Everyone kneads equally

    I've been waiting so long for this time
    I'm terrified
    Blind in ways I've never realized
    I don't mind Writer/s: LEWIS COSBY, JESSE HASEK, RYAN JOHNSON, BRIAN VODINH, MATT WANTLAND

  • Greg from Flower Mound, TxI think this song is about when 10 years was gaining poularity. They were still down to earth and the world's superficial, cruel, dog-eat-dog, every man for himself outlook was appauling and although driven to become succesful they did not want to end up like that
