Circa Survive - Schema Lyrics



I never want to see clear at all
There's nothing that could be there now

X marks the page you see
Trapped in a cold white room
I wanna know who'd be there when you snuff the wick
I won't reflect the same as you
I want the proof you'll promise to let 'em down quick.

I never want to see clear at all
There's nothing that could be there now.

Pull out your teeth (until)
There's nothing left (at all)
Immediately I feel relief from dragging this vessel around

Exit the stage you keep
Sleep in a cold white room
I wanna know who'd be there when you snuff the wick

Just shut your mouth,

And if it takes forever to be sure,

I wanna know
I'll wait it out
And see your hand without fingerprints
I wanna know, I wanna know

Pull out your teeth (until)
There's nothing left (at all)
Immediately, I feel relief from dragging this vessel around.

I'm playing dead (until)
There's nothing left (at all)
Immediately I feel relief from dragging this vessel around.

  12. Bob Jiggins

    this video is terrible lol what happened to Circa Survives quality control

  13. Astroman64

    Anyone find it interesting that the only way Anthony could win was with low blows? The baby wins with direct shots to the face.

  14. Matthew Forbes

    it's the soul vs your fragile go

  15. Gregorio Lupercio

    That's me and my baby fighting for my wife's milk

  16. Michael Tra

    3:44 something about the way he sings print in “fingerprint” is so nice

  17. VolcanicLeviathan

    There's something so dark/scary about his voice

  18. Can someone tell me where the bathroom is?

    I kinda wish that bell was in the actual song

  19. Myotic Tesseract

    Haha, Anthony got beat up by a baby.

  20. Joseph Chuy

    Anyone knows this song got a cameo in the movie American Satan?

  21. Hao Fu

    So this is the color version of Raging Bull fight scene :)

  22. Nadav Goshen

    Anyone listening 4 years later still in awe of how good it is? The sound on this record might be the best I've ever heard, I wish The Amulet was mixed and mastered like this god record.

  23. jason smith

    The fuck

  24. Yawny_Cash

    I was SO shocked to hear this in the American Satan movie

  26. DimeBag Darrell

    In real life Anthony would’ve won

  27. Kiyah S. K. Shines

    It's 2 am... and I wasn't sure what I was seeing at first

  32. J Smith

    Boss baby on steroids lmao #LightsOut

  33. hollowminds

    Looks like I'm late to the party. This is amazing. The singer sounds like a mix of Tillian from DGD, Devin Oliver, and Elliott Coleman.

  34. elly

    I've always wanted to know what the baby resembled or it mean nothing an more of an attraction peice

  35. Aroniyun

  41. Peptic Birch

  42. Kirklin Penner

    I wonder if Richard James had anything to do with this music video..? No?

  43. Arjun

    Getting strong 'Tool' vibes from this song. Like Lateralus/Aenima Tool

  44. Yossi Andreas

    I never want to see clear at all
    There's nothing that could be there now

    X marks the page you see
    Trapped in a cold white room
    I wanna know who'd be there when you snuff the wick
    I won't reflect the same as you
    I want the proof you'll promise to let 'em down quick.

    I never want to see clear at all
    There's nothing that could be there now.

    Pull out your teeth (until)
    There's nothing left (at all)
    Immediately I feel relief from dragging this vessel around

    Exit the stage you keep
    Sleep in a cold white room
    I wanna know who'd be there when you snuff the wick

    Just shut your mouth,

    And if it takes forever to be sure,

    I wanna know
    I'll wait it out
    And see your hand without fingerprints
    I wanna know, I wanna know

    Pull out your teeth (until)

    I'm playing dead (until)
    There's nothing left (at all)

  49. Gage Miller

    So this is Anthony Green getting knocked the fuck out by the Great Golden Baby right?

  50. Yes I'm Takeoff Can't Stop Me Now

    I am your grandma

    If you get this marry me

  51. Amnyxia

    If you wanna get emotional, mute this, and start Nesting Dolls at the same time. It breaks my heart

  52. J S

    Baby is in the wrong weight class

  53. Michelle Sanchez

    SHITT HAHA PUNCH BABIES!!! LIT-ER-ALLY!!!! XD

  54. MangoMac is back

    sick music video

  55. akpimpjuice

    Where's the huge ass baphomet tattoo on Anthony's back?

    Supreme Pantalones

    he got it within the last year i believe

  56. DawgPoundBrutus

    This song reminds me of Jane's Addiction and Tool meshed together. Amazing!!!!

  57. Vincent Carbary

    Don't give up the fight

  58. Luke Pruett

    he better not let that baby beat his ass lol

  59. igotflover

    the baby is scaring me tbh

  60. Hazy

    A schema (schematic) is a blueprint for how one operates and functions. With the birth of his child, Anthony now has to assimilate the prospect of a child into his life and contend (literally) with the reality that he is a father.

  61. Monica Michaels

    love this band!

  62. HYPERLATINO

    красивая

  63. Melly Aokigahara

    Damn, they've come a long ways. Anthony looking daddy af.

  64. Forrest Powell

    I'm just too high to keep watching this video. good song though.

  65. Mike LsDrummer1

    progressive rock at its finest

  66. jackawaka

    came here from the page that made that mask, some pretty good music. I think I'll be staying.

  67. Andrew Florenski

    I never wanna see grandma

  68. Nom

    can someone explain what the fuck is in this mans mouth at 2:12

    Taylor Johnathan

    Nom mouth guard

  69. hilmi yahyah

    dude the MV sucks, I mean its good, really good and all, but was hoping the guy would win somehow in the end, but he just died, it bothers me

    MigratingPig

    That's their perception of the album, things just end, no reason, no hope, just ends.

  70. Randall Vela

    That is one mean ass Baby

  71. Yannie Angerer

    I've only recently discovered Circa Survive through this vid. At first I was just watching it because I was so curious to see who's gonna win that fight. But now I really love this song.

  72. Demetrio Lopez

    They put some much soul into there music its so beautiful

    Demetrio Lopez

    2:57 chills

  73. Jake Burnell

    Bass line and kick parts mesh up so well. Such amazing ambient parts. Loving this new sound!

  74. Dakota Noreiga

    These guys have never been concerned with making hits or appealing to people other than themselves, which is a good thing. Make art for yourself and people liking it is a great by-product. That's why I have always always loved circa. Juturna is their greatest work but that's just my opinion because it perfectly reflects that time period in non commercial music. just imagine Anthony and deloused era Cedric (the Mara Volta) doing a collab....I would be completely fulfilled.

  75. Jake

    I just got into Circa (after falling in love with the new Saosin album with Anthony on it) and I much prefer this style over their old stuff. Its a shame this theme didn't carryout through the rest of the album.

  76. Damon Smith

    This makes me wanna listen to Saosin's self-titled.

  77. Zak Aarashi

    My name is Michael J Caboose... and I.. HATE... BABIES!!

  78. Brian Reyes Music

    stoked for the upcoming tour

  79. Deyza Ambellina

    COHEED AND SURVIVE

  80. Yes I'm Takeoff Can't Stop Me Now

    wow Anthony lost :(

    rose tf2

    when does he ever not die in his music videos

  81. Michael Hudson

    I feel like this song and video are about his addition

    Yes I'm Takeoff Can't Stop Me Now

    I'm fuckin dead

  82. Maria A. Robledo

    I was actually crying when Anthony was getting punched in the face :'(

    Like if you cry every time.

  83. Cammy

    ONE PUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNCCCCHHHHHHH

    Fati Z

    Irusu

    HAHAHA DUDE

  87. Carlin

    that was great 10/10

  88. Jachibel

    It makes me sad that people don't like/don't get what the video is about.

    The way I see it, the video is about him dealing with his wife's miscarriages. He's constantly getting beat up through them, and there are more waiting on the sidelines as he tries to get through them. The whole beginning of the song is about him trying to get through their passings and moving on from them as best he can, and the end of the song ends with him having some relief with it all being over.

    Just my take anyways :x

    Jachibel

    The whole crow symbolism also signifies the whole tone of death throughout the song as well! Forgot to add that.

    Mitchell allen

    That's a great interpretation. But if I remember correctly (which is not very reliable haha), Anthony said it was about his heroin addiction and the childishness that he had while on it. He thought he could do heroin and act like a teenager for the rest of his life till it almost took his family away and almost took his life. That's why the raven, a symbol of death, it beside him till he gets knocked out. This is because Heroin beat him almost to death. When he hit rock bottom (him getting knocked out) the "baby" thinks it won. They were suppose to make a sequel to show him getting up but there was a huge back lash from fans who didn't understand the symbolism and just viewed it as gruesome. Personally as someone who has struggled with addiction, this video is pretty spot on.

    CJ2041

    Mitchell allen - I had the same thoughts.. especially with the crow watching the battle.. I think this video is a solid metaphor for his experience.

  89. Roger Dalzell

    video doesnt work for the song at all for me. completely different vibe. still want to marry this song tho

    TheFitnessTutor

    I disagree...

  90. Marryon Lillibridge

    fuck he sounds like cedric here

    shadow_of_darkness

    what cedric?

    Hasan M

    They even did a cover of At The Drive-In

    TheFitnessTutor

    No shit? I have to find this...what song? I dont' think he sounds like Ced though

  91. rey ven

    who's here from pretty little liars ?

  92. John Collins

    song's so fucking good. didn't really care for the video that much.

  93. Undergroundmcity

    Descensus is easily their best album

    QJAndra

    Undergroundmcity I'm a gigantic fan of on letting go. I honestly love it so much I abstained from listening to new stuff since. I was 20 then. I'll be 30 next year. do you absolutely think I should given this album full attention?

    Nicholas Wright

    QJAndra y
    Yes. Absolutely. Take it from a relatively new Circa fan, Descensus was the album that made me listen to the others. On Letting Go is my favorite hands down, but this is 100% an amazing piece of musical prowess. Do yourself a favor and listen to it front to back.

  94. Alexander Boese

    WHAT THE #%*@ JUST HAPPENED?!?! WERE THOSE BABIES!? WAS THAT GUY DEAD.... WAS THAT A #$*@)(IN CROW?!
