We Came As Romans - Foreign Fire Lyrics




Every year goes by
Never ending change and I start to miss the ones I've kept the closest to me
(Their names spoken now in memory)
I've always tried to carry my words without deceptive cause but clear objective
I've shed the youth I lived in

My head feels so heavy my heart follows suit
Is this what I wanted to turn into?
You don't have to stay
And wonder who I've become
I'm the story of the one you used to love
I'm the story of the one you used to love

Every time that I never seem to answer why I'm ignoring all the calls from home to be alone
A foreign voice or dial tone?
I'm ignoring all the calls from home to be alone
A foreign voice or dial tone?

My head feels so heavy, my heart follows suit
Is this what I wanted to turn into?
You don't have to stay
And wonder who I've become
(You don't have to stay, you don't have to stay)
Your eyes look so heavy, I had to concede
Is this what you wanted to prove to me?
You don't have to stay and wonder who I've become

Who have I become?
The story of the one you used to love
I'm the story of the one you used to love

I spent the morning looking down at the baggage claim
With yesterday, your hand in mine
Sitting as you laid a world away
And now the words soak into my head
That your chest has stilled
And I'll never see you again
I'll never see you again

I swear to God I tried to come back home
Be by your side, to hold you close
While the sorrow spread to divide us both
I swear to God I tried, I swear to God I tried

I'm the story of the one you used to love
(I didn't want this)
I'm the story of the one you used to love
(I didn't want this)

I swear to God I tried to come back home
Be by your side, to hold you close
While the sorrow spread to divide us both
I swear to God I tried, I swear to God I tried
I tried

    This song was almost impossible to listen to without balling everytime I heard it.. I went to their concert April 24th, 2019.. and they paid tribute to Kyle with this song and I completely lost it..
    Don't get me wrong it is an awesome song.. but wow it's something powerful..

    It is a crime against humanity that this video has only 650,000 views. This is one of the best metalcore tracks ever created. How can you even improve this? Gold. That bridge can make a grown man cry like a little bitch.

    Well,i feel sad that i can translate this music video now.
    His death makes me cry 4 days now.
    As i was listening to this song,i got curious and i was like "wait,what is this video about"?
    And then watched it over and over.
    The last time i "translate" a video was bmth it never ends" and i got 900 likes you can check it out.
    First thing i saw is a tarot card at 0:48.
    It's the queen of swords,I THINK cause i google it.
    They are lots of opinions/rumors and facts behind this card and i am not sure what its the real one.
    I watched a video which said that this card represents a person with self problems or something like that.
    I don't know,maybe it means that kyle was a drug addict , no one knows but him.
    As you can see kyle is playing chess with a black wear man/woman(i don't know what is under that cloak or whatever).
    We actually see in the video actresses that maybe are his mother and father,i don't know if they are his real family.
    1:35 "is this what i wanted to turn into"and the same time he is showing a card that i didn't found info about it.
    But in the background we can see his mother.
    I think i doesn't mean something good.
    As the video goes by,you see that the black wear man showing cards to him,but the camera didn't show us the last two cards.
    You can actually see the terror/sadness/anxiety/curiosity in their faces 2:33 2:48 3:02 3:08.
    After that,he is showing a card and kyles reaction is like " no put this away, i cant watch it" 3:15
    Then you see he is showing a card that it might be the tarot card death cause kyles head falls on the table.
    3:34 - 3:38 you see his parents again sad and ready to cry about what happened or what is about to happen...(fuck me)
    3:42 the hourglass runs empty.
    3:46 An empty seat which means kyle's death.
    Ah...Boy i am so fucked up,i am so sad dude,he was a great person/musician/artist.
    Rest in our hearts kyle pavone!

    Gustav Wordless

    Thanks martin.
    Yeah if you listen the whole album "cold like war" you will see some shit going on with the lyrics.
    So much darkness/sadness but deep in the good ways always,for me.
    But when it comes to kyles death and you put the lyrics together with the first albums you be like...you know confused.
    Example 1: song "Vultures with clipped wings " lyrics > This is an end, so I'm starting again, reborn<
    Example 2: song "Promise me" Lyrics > Will I be remembered or will I be lost in loving eyes? I, feel them move my body from the scene
    Example 3: song "Learning to survive" Lyrics > And it feels like a prison I'm living in, I'm too old to acquit, too young to convict, Here I am wide awake, no I'm not dead YET...
    I can feel them watching me while I'm learning to survive
    Staring at my broken will that I'm too tired to hide
    So many demons I can't escape, burning my bridges to light the way
    I can feel them watching me but I'll make it out alive
    I'm learning to survive<

    So,
    In this video at 0:13 you see a music note right?
    Its a sign of the the direct quote from the title track of their first album,song called to plant a seed.
    The lyrics of this song(to plant a seed) are:
    "And our vision for this world will not die when we are dead.
    My future started with THE FIRST NOTE I ever played.
    The first note that was ever sang."

    Now lets travel to 2017 album cold like war.
    Search for the song " IF THERES NOTHING TO SEE".
    It has like a goodbye feeling ,a nostalgia ,a feeling "i look back to our moments before i leave" in it,i dont know maybe its just me.
    Example 4 :The lyrics are"
    >And it leaves me in awe,twelve years THIS SUMMER (kyle died 25 august)
    No matter Heaven or Hell, forever my brothers(like no matter wherever i go,you will be my band/brothers)
    I fought my way through blinding lights to see my path again(blinding lights are the afterlife lights people "see" between life and death")
    Our vision for this world will not die when we are dead(this is the quote from their first album i told you about and its also in this song ten years later,almost)
    I'll be there to share the view even if there's nothing to ( even if i die i will watch you from the sky / i will share the view with the dead)<
    And now the fucking creepy part.
    In the end of this song you can hear a"little girl sound effect" say:
    "Can i die?" 4:25 like...fuck dude omg...
    The example no5 is this video and some lyrics of it,kinda.
    Lyrics>Every year goes by
    Never ending change and I start to miss the ones I've kept the closest to me
    And now the words soak into my head
    That your chest has stilled
    And I'll never see you again
    I'll never see you again

    I really hope its just me and its not what was meant to be.
    But i am not the man thats believes in coincidences.
    Something tells me that kyles wanted to end his life which is veeeery sad literally..
    And sorry for my english hope you understand my whole point,have a nice day.

    Martin Johnsson

    @Gustav Wordless That's... hard to take in. If he really "planned" his death for such a long time... i sure hope it isn't so but it wouldn't surprise me because our world is sick indeed. Take care of yourelf!

    Thomas Dobson

    @Martin Johnsson the song is about kyle's split from his gf the empty chair is him not being in her life anymore, coz he's "the story of the one you used to love"

    Brian Bureau

    @Gustav Wordless Honestly I think you gotta point. I don't think kyle just died out of nowhere

    High Octane

    @Brian Bureau look up kyles post about promise me. He was dealing with a lot of mental shit and he was self medicating if that puts together some pieces for you.

  45. Nighter

    So devastating to hear about Kyle... Sending out my thoughts and prayers to his family and friends, as well as WCAR. May your soul rest in peace, Kyle.
