Chi Cheng was an original member of Deftones, whom heavily inspired my music and is one of my favorite bands. This song is dedicated to Chi, the Cheng family, members of Deftones, and his friends all over the world. I miss you already brother....thought you were going to make it.. :(. Rest in peace, you will be dearly missed. Lyrics below.

Verse 1

On the road again, the lights flashing forward,
ejected from a life lived before.
Falling in a blackout,
still surfing through the thick crowd..
The roots of sleep made a door,
reflecting how people feel sore.
We're throwing a party, you're invited,
you're hidden, we're still excited to have you here.


I can feel your hands,
I can see you dance.


Burning eyes and closing lips,
silence fills the room.
we all know that death is not your tomb.
In a field of dreams,
wrapped around in glass,
memories at shutterspeed,
the life of the past,
still carries on, your strings to pull us through,
the sounds the newborns carry you.

Verse 2

Embodiments are fragile,
but legacys are strong,
we all make our choices,
labeled right or wrong.
To burn a nation in inspiration,
the afterburn is what makes us learn.
Broken souls learn the most,
now you're flying through airwaves and radios.

The living fall out of shape,
While the dead voices retaliate,
and keep burning through this world of lies,
glowing fragments like fireflies.

(prechorus then chorus)


Well-written lyrics.
Pretty good melodies.
Good composition in whole.
Quality is bit crap.
Vocals are kinda iffy at many points.
Vocals are too quiet.
Drums are a bit weak.
Drums are too quiet.
The rap/scream part is kinda cheesy. Not terrible though.

Overall it wasn't a terrible listen. (That's why I gave it a 3.5. If you could just fix up those cons, this would be a perfect listen for me.

this song does'nt sound good

Not bad! Not bad at All! :)
