Atreyu The Theft Lyrics

Last updated: 05/02/2013 09:06:09 AM

He bends and he breaks
If you give they will take away
His passion, his pain, his grace.

He exhales,
A thousand black flowers explode
into butterflies as they're away

Rip them out, take them,
Burn the coals as they crush and
Leave nothing
that resembles the soul of a man
See him numb, see him crushed
See him numb, See him crushed
Rip them out, take them
Burn the coals as they crush and
Leave nothing
that resembles the soul of a man
Leave him numb, leave him crushed
Leave him numb, leave him crushed

Took the fire inside
One too many times
He's burning over and out now,
He fails
Up against the raging tides,
No more fights
Everything you ever wanted to see,
See it in his eyes
One more time, one more time

Climb down to test the waters,
My hands feel like they're rusting away yea, away yea.
So I'll pace around like a lamb before the slaughter
I'll stay here as long as you let me,
Decisions been made obvious so I will return
Where I started I'll stay there
Unfinished
I'll wither away

Rip them out, take them,
Burn the coals as they crush and
Leave nothing
that resembles the soul of a man
See him numb, See him crushed
See him numb, See him crushed
Rip them out, take them
Burn the coals as they crush and
Leave nothing
That resembles a soul of a man
Leave him numb, Leave him crushed
Leave him numb, Leave him crushed

I agree/disagree | Reviewer: Zack | 5/11/11

I agree with most of the people who commented that Atreyu is a great band, however they are not the best in my opinion. Avenged Sevenfold ( A7X ) is. Also, when it comes to live shows they are good performance wise but their vocals suck.



Atreyu wtights about life. | Reviewer: Dallas Collier | 10/14/10

Well,when i started listening to atreyu when i was like 12 i almost pissed my self. Their songs are amazing. I mean come on? If you don't like this band you have to get your ears checked. They are one of the best bands live in concert, and have some of the best screams. I own every cd, and i don't regret buying any of them



Review... | Reviewer: Dinosaur | 9/20/10

I have to say that ever since I started listening to Atreyu I've loved them. They are currently my favorite band, and three of their songs are in my own little personal top ten songs of all time (The Theft, Demonology and Heartache and My Sanity On the Funeral Pyre) I recently finished a piece of artwork I made to go with this song, based off my interpretation of it. To me the song is about the way people will come into your life, promise you things and/or cause you to grow a bond with them, but will then proceed to leave you all alone while you try and figure out what went wrong. Hence, "Rip them out, take them,
Burn the coals as they crush and
Leave nothing
that resembles the soul of a man
See him numb, See him crushed
See him numb, See him crushed"
Because every time somebody new comes into your life and you think that they could actually help you become happier you end up disappointed.



I Like | Reviewer: Jess | 2/3/10

It's a good song, better than I expected (no offence to the band) and the lyrics are really meaningful but I have one issue.

The "Evony" ad at the side of the page looks like an ad for a f*cking HOOKER ad! For the love of God, this website needs some new advertisements of sponsers or something. I came to the website to find the lyrics, not see some whore's plastic implants on the side of the page.



The Theft <3 | Reviewer: Lisa | 12/16/09

I think this song is absolutely ah-mazing!
Atreyu is my favorite band, and always will be.
I used
"He exhales,
A thousand black flowers explode
into butterflies as they're away"
To make and interpretation for an artwork that I did. Ever since then I have loved this song. Also, I love the Slow side to Atreyu. It shows that they can be more than just hardcore screamo. It shows that they have absolute pure talent! <3



Song's meaning | Reviewer: BlUe_AcE11 | 9/2/09

This song is awesome; Atreyu is definitely one of my favorite bands. This song is about lead singer Alex Varkatzas freedom when he was an alcoholic, it is sad yet very meaningful and completely badass!



Favorite band!! | Reviewer: Kayci Klobassa | 5/28/09

this is definatally my favorite band of all time.
Every song they sing is amazing. I listened to Ex's and Oh's and Becoming the Bull like thirty times every day, back when they were my favorite songs. I hope to go to an Atreyu concert some time with my friends, it would be amazing!!



Inspirational | Reviewer: Optimus | 2/16/09

This song literally is the most amazing thing ive ever heard. Bradon Saller's voice is godly. I wish i could be that guy because of this song. If you want the full extent of this man's skill. you need this song



wow | Reviewer: someone | 1/1/09

I love this song. Its so sad, to me its about a child taken into the adult world too early and is constantly pushed so much that he has no escape until he is old and worn out, with no hope of returning to his past, because his childhood was stolen.



Atreyu = <3 | Reviewer: Mickey | 7/18/08

I love atreyu! They are by far my favorite band of all times! This song just takes my breath away here u have this metal band with all these hardcore songs and then they have this one song that is so soft and toned way down from their normal and they totally rocked it! Only the best are able to do such a thing! And Atreyu is beyond the best!!
