Circa Survive & Anthony Green "Lyric Archive" & Discussion

Recommended Posts

I've heard babygirl as ten years later, six years later, seven years later, and probably more.

I mean, it's a little odd that it's every recording, but I'm pretty sure it's not a mistake so much as ant doing what he wants.

yeah, it's because Baby Girl is about his wife....even in the old version, you'll hear him sing "Meredith, i'll miss yu when youre in (something, I read somewhere it was Utah?)" I feel like a creep talking about his personal life but he announced that they were getting married at the last show of his I went to and dedicated the song to her, or at least talked about her or something, I dont remember his exact words.

I always sing it with, "Meredith, I'll miss you when you go anywhere". I think it was in the video I learned to play the song from, but I can't remember.

 

But I think the time I heard him say "seven years later" it was just him joking about the saosin song.

ant. green constantly changes his lyrics up... there's an infinite amount of videos out there of him singing his stuff 'wrong'

it's his songs, he can do whatever the fuck he wants. haha

 

"It's nothing personal you're just a STUPID CUNT."

 

Just so no one else misunderstands, this is a changed lyric Anthony does in Holding Someone's Hair Back, etc.

that's a rather aggressive remark lol

 

?

 

That's one of the changed lyrics Anthony does on "Holding Someone's Hair Back." I thought we were talking about those. :(

It's on a bunch of youtubed performances.

 

Also, "Ariel, your crying made me come."

 

The HSHB changed lyric is my favorite one though. Lmfao, I'm not actually going to say "you're a stupid cunt" to somebody. :(

That's how an old, old version of "Stone Hearted Man" made me feel. He sang "What you need to be, what you need to be for me. Be free..."

Its now up in the lyrics section on their site

 

Strange Terrain

 

We read the signs completely backwards

no one could see if we ended up

where we needed to be

to find out how it all works with

so many partners

and nobody wants, nobody wants to sit

behind the wheel, behind the wheel

 

Who's the one pounding the gears

avoiding the crowds

keeping their ear to the ground?

Oh I’ve made a mistake

I never learned how to get back to the place, ohhh

 

Where have all the signs gone?

I don't know where I am without them

in our lives

 

We made designs completely backwards

and nobody knows if we’re even close

to where we need to go

to find out how it all works with

so many artists and nobody

wants to sit behind the wheel, behind the wheel

(Get your own map)

 

Who's the one pounding the gears

avoiding the crowds, keeping their ear to the ground?

Oh I’ve made a mistake

I never learned how to get back to the place

where all our confidence kept us behind a shield

Only light could get through

where all our confidence kept us behind a shield

Only light could get through

 

Where have all the signs gone?

I don't know where I am without them

in our lives

"Your stolen memories

will find you

in the last place

you would think to look

All the time that it took to locate

Maybe it’ll just pass by you

or rip right through your heart

Underneath the surface

we break apart"

 

seriously....these Glass Arrows lyrics are blowing me away just on their own. i can't wait to hear them in context with the actual song!

i'm pretty sure you hear a preview of it in sequence 8 if i'm not mistaken...it's the vocals session with anthony on the roof

 

idk if anyone has mentioned that yet because i barely read this shit anymore, a lot bitching and bullshit nonsense killed this thread months ago

 

EDIT: i lied, it's the one where anthony plays the show at the beginning

I Felt Free:

 

"Nothing new to say

Nothing to report ‘cause the future happened yesterday

 

If I could tell the truth

I could make you stay

but forever seems so far away

 

I fell apart in your arms

for the last time

And I felt free to do what I want

because of the things you told me,

because of the things you told me, you told me

I felt free

 

 

You could be the end of me

Too many shades of gray

It’s just another pointless game that we play

 

I couldn’t tell the truth

I’ll never make you stay

because tomorrow always happens yesterday

 

I fell apart in your arms

for the last time

And I felt free to do what I want

because of the things you told me

because of the things you told me, you told me

I felt free

 

I felt free

 

I will learn to live again for now I’m breaking

all the things I couldn't mend without escaping

I will learn to love again

I will learn to love

I will learn"

last part reminds me of the dear hunter

"one of these days, he will learn to love again"

would be cool if it had similar looping vocals, i LOVE that part in life & death.

I wonder if Anthony still gets inspiration from eternal sunshine. You know, with "stolen memories" and all.

^ + :

 

"Cause you were my ally once, you were my confidante

I need somebody close to be close to...forever!! FOREVER!!"

 

"And the earth and its skin will open up and birth out a perfect mirror, that makes all our reflections clear"

 

"The more that you get the less you are"

 

"Never underestimate the daylight"

 

"Shriveled up under desert lights, eaten up in the night"

 

"Nothing new to say, nothing to report cause the future happened yesterday"

 

"I must admit now going down within this ship, I couldn't have a better crew to travel with. If I make it in one piece back to land, I will never sail again. NEVER!"

 

"Either way I'm going to hell"

 

"And nothing's going to change that hopeless feeling I get when you say you'll understand...and I know you can't..."

 

"I made a promise to you long ago, I'd do the best that I can, I'd try and keep it"

 

"Maybe it'll just pass by you, or rip right through your heart"

 

"Always keep those fingers clean"

 

"Slipshod cavalier"

 

I know we can't pretend to never make a sound again"

 

"I've taken a life and mine for granted, neither planned or in passion / Into the forest towards the mother,

though I've destroyed her favorite son"

 

"Disappeared from public places, never seen again. How long has it been....HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN?"
