This Conversation Is Over

Album: On Frail Wings Of Vanity And Wax (2006)
  • Take everything away from me silent angel

    Apathy cries out from your lungs, indifference reeks of fiction
    Time will tell how far you will go
    I can't see why you'd run and hide excluding such complacence
    As tears rain from bloodshot eyes

    [Chorus]
    Take everything away from me silent angel
    Leave me nothing to remind me of this time now lost

    The air now reeks with the presence of your vile voice
    As your smile masks the advance you keep
    I am not your trophy
    The air now reeks with the presence of your vile voice
    As your smile masks the advance you keep
    I am not your trophy

    Please try to say more carefully that you no longer need me
    This back and forth is killing me
    The only eyes you'll look into are those in your reflection
    You are the means of my end

    This conversation is over, it's over
    Your truth is a deception meant to poison me

    [Chorus]

    I can't seem to believe you ever cared for me
    This conversation is over
    Your empty words now drift away as fragile whispers
    I saw the day when the fire left your eyes, your tongue fell still
    Your treason is silence
    Take everything away from me silent angel
    Leave me nothing to remind me of this time now lost Writer/s: DENNIS LEE, DENNIS LAVELL LEE, PATRICK THOMPSON, PATRICK M. THOMPSON, SHAWN MILKE

  • Johnny from Dallas, TxThis is an amazing song! Of course I've listened to it since 2008 during my freshman year in high school, but I never understood it until it now. This girl who's making a guy fall in love with her and then doing it over again must be a drama queen or something.
