  1. 2007'de çıkan "echoes, silence, patience & grace" albümünün açılış parçası. sözleri ikiyüzlü insanları yerin dibine gömer. "anlamlı bir şey söylemeyi bıraktım, cehaleti mazeret olarak görmeyi bıraktım, bütün savunma bu" ve "ben kafanın içindeki duymayı reddettiğin sesim, karşılaşmak zorunda olduğun yüzüm, bakışlarından yansıyan, ben geride kalanım, ben doğru olanım, ben düşmanım, seni yere indirecek, dizlerinin üstüne çöktürecek elim, sen kimsin" der dave. bir isyandır, hoşgörüyü bırakıştır. ama susmak da değildir, sürekli bir karşıda duruş vardır. "ya senin diğer oyunlarından biri olmadığımı söylersem? sen oyuncusun. ya sana asla teslim olmayacağımı söylersem?". heyt be.

    keep you in the dark you know they all pretend
    keep you in the dark and so it all began

    send in your skeletons
    sing as their bones go marching in again
    they need you buried deep
    the secrets that you keep are at the ready
    are you ready
    i’m finished making sense
    done pleading ignorance, that whole defense
    spinning infinity, boy
    the wheel is spinning me
    it’s never ending
    never ending
    same old story

    what if i say i’m not like the others
    what if i say i’m not just another one of your plays
    you’re the pretender
    what if i say i will never surrender
    what if i say i’m not like the others
    what if i say i’m not just another one of your plays
    you’re the pretender
    what if i say i will never surrender

    in time or so i’m told
    i’m just another soul for sale
    oh well
    the page is out of print
    we are not permanent, we're
    temporary, temporary
    same old story

    what if i say i’m not like the others
    what if i say i’m not just another one of your plays
    you’re the pretender
    what if i say i will never surrender
    what if i say i’m not like the others
    what if i say i’m not just another one of your plays
    you’re the pretender
    what if i say i will never surrender

    i’m the voice inside your head
    you refuse to hear
    i’m the face that you have to face
    mirroring your stare
    i’m what’s left
    i’m what’s right
    i’m the enemy
    i’m the hand that took you down
    bring you to your knees
    so who are you
    yeah, who are you
    yeah, who are you
    yeah, who are you

    keep you in the dark
    you know they all pretend

    what if i say i’m not like the others
    what if i say i’m not just another one of your plays
    you’re the pretender
    what if i say i will never surrender
    what if i say i’m not like the others
    what if i say i’m not just another one of your plays
    you’re the pretender
    what if i say i will never surrender

    what if i say i'm not like the others?
    (keep you in the dark)
    what if i say i'm not just another one of your plays?
    (you know they all)
    you're the pretender
    (pretend)
    what if i say i will never surrender?

    what if i say i'm not like the others?
    (keep you in the dark)
    what if i say i'm not just another one of your plays?
    (you know they all)
    you're the pretender
    (pretend)
    what if i say i will never surrender?

    so who are you?
    yeah, who are you?
    yeah, who are you?
