  • Speak of the devil
    Look who just walked into the room
    The guilted and faded
    Notion of someone I once knew.

    All the perfect moments are wrong
    All the precious pieces are gone
    Everything that mattered is just
    A city of dust
    Covering both of us

    Did you hide yourself away?
    I can't see you anymore
    Did you eclipse another day?
    I used to wake up to the color of your soul

    Did you hide yourself away?
    Are you living through the ghost?
    Did you finally find a place
    Above the shadows so the world will never know?
    The world will never know you like I do

    So many silent sorrows
    You never hear from again
    And now that you've lost tomorrow
    Is yesterday still a friend?

    All the bridges we built were burned
    Not a single lesson was learned
    Everything that mattered is just
    A city of dust
    Covering both of us

    Did you hide yourself away?
    I can't see you anymore
    Did you eclipse another day?
    I used to wake up to the color of your soul

    Did you hide yourself away?
    Are you living through the ghost?
    Did you finally find a place
    Above the shadows so the world will never know?
    The world will never know you like I do

    Like I still do

    Did you hide yourself away?
    I can't see you anymore
    Did you eclipse another day?
    I used to wake up to the color of your soul

    Did you hide yourself away?
    Are you living through the ghost?
    Did you finally find a place
    Above the shadows so the world will never know?
    The world will never know you Writer/s: BRENT SMITH, DAVE BASSETT

  • Melanie Kilgore from New Canton VaBrent Smith has impacted my life in ways that you wouldn't think possible. My daughter at age 4, used to know every single word to sound of madness and we would listen to that whole album on the way to school every morning and she just screamed out the lyrics and had a blast. My son, at around 6 months old,, had colic, it was a nightmare. Then one night I decided I'd play some Attention Attention, not only to see if It would sooth him as it did me, and no longer than 30 seconds into that song, he was out like a light. And from then on out, I would use that album to calm him down during tantrums. Brent Smith is the hero to me and my babies!
  • Zero from The Abyss, NjKinda reminds me of Disarm by the Smashing Pumpkins.
