lost in confusion
not knowing which way to return
to the person you know
this trepidation makes you
take it out on someone else
you forever
everybody wins
i don't think so

what would the worst thing be if you
took the wheel and you lost control
no one is safe inside your safety zone
don't understand but i hear what you're saying
the repetition of a lonely life
somebody tell me why the
heart is waging war against the
friends of the enemy of your mind

not your opinion
sounds like you learn it from a show
it appears you have lost
so sick of marching in your lonliness parade
stay together underneath a giant tidal wave

what would the worst thing be if you
took the wheel and you lost control
no one is safe inside your safety zone
don't understand but i hear what you're saying
the repetition of a lonely life
somebody tell me why the
heart is waging war against the
friends of the enemy of your mind

your imatated
ordinary life

its when that you can't break free can you
take a chance as you let it go
happy without the words you'll never know
no way to lose when your mimicking you're paying
a no decision forbidden home
no one is safe inside your safety zone
don't understand but i hear what you're saying
the repetition of a lonely life
no one is safe inside your safety zone
don't understand but i hear what you're saying
the repetition of a lonely soul
no one is safe inside your zone

    General CommentThis song rocks. I really like the Vocal melodies. I think it's about having the guts to stand for your real opinions in life...to be honest to yourself and to others. Sure, you're less likely to lose when you follow the grain but is that really what you want?

    General CommentI think this song is about the fear of entering into a relationship with someone.

    "what would the worst thing be if you
    took the wheel and you lost control
    no one is safe inside your safety zone"

    What would the worst thing be if you took the initiative to tell someone your feelings about them? You can't stay inside your "safety zone." You have to "take the wheel" and open up.

    "happy without the words you'll never know"

    You'd rather risk not being hurt than hear someone's words of comfort. Just my thoughts. [.:shrugs:.]

    General CommentMy favourite album is probably Making Friends or Leche Con Carne but Hard Rock Bottom is still good even thought it's got a slightly more different sound to it.
