Senses Fail Irony of Dying On Your Birthday Lyrics

Last updated: 08/02/2009 11:00:00 AM

Just know
We are
A spec
In time.

So follow your bliss
And destroy the beauty

I'll lock myself alone in a room
Drink until the clock strikes noon
With just a pen, a pill, and some paper
And maybe I will write a sad song
Or another cliche poem
Of the person that I long to be

I wanna die like Jim Morrison
A fucking rock star
I wanna die like God on the cover of time.
Just a blink and it's gone
So baby pour some fame in my glass.

So kill the forest
And destroy the beauty.

I'll lock myself alone in a room
Drink until the clock strikes noon
With just a pen, a pill, and some paper
And maybe I will write a sad song
Or another cliche poem
Of the person that I long to be

(Colors blind)
the eyes
(Sounds deafen)
the ear
(Flavors numb)
the taste
(Thoughts weaken)
the mind

I'll attack someone with a switchblade knife
So that I can see their pain
I choose to be a serial killer
'Cause the victims don't get any fame.

I'll lock myself alone in a room
Drink until the clock strikes noon
With just a pen, a pill, and some paper
And maybe I will write a sad song
Or another cliche poem
Of the person that I long to be

Just know we are a spec in time
[Chorus and second verse in the background]

GREAT song | Reviewer: JT | 7/31/09

On that whole topic of emo & lookin the part, I'm black, I dress like I'm black, if I didn't open my mouth I talk like I had a brain you wouldn't think anything of me. I was such a good musician that I could have played my Ibanez EDB 405 professionally if there was better money in that field. But I chose to dedicate the rest of my life to the automotive industry. & in fact, I still prefer nu metal & hardcore over hip hop/ rap ANY DAY.

This song is a good eye opener to how short life really is. The emo/screamo thing REALLY helps get that point across. Great lyrics & metaphors. I like the riffs that are in the parts like the verses too.

Senses Fail is AMAZING
