"Fine Again" as written by and Shaun Welgemoed....
It seems like every day's the same
And I'm left to discover on my own
It seems like everything is gray
And there's no color to behold
They say it's over and I'm fine again, yeah
Try to stay sober feels like I'm dying here

And I am aware now of how
Everything's gonna be fine one day
Too late, I'm in hell I am prepared now
Seems everyone's gonna be fine
One day too late, just as well

I feel the dream in me expire
And there's no one left to blame it on
I hear you label me a liar
'Cause I can't seem to get this through
You say it's over, I can sigh again, yeah
Why try to stay sober when I'm dying here

And I am aware now of how
Everything's gonna be fine one day
Too late, I'm in hell
I am prepared now
Seems everyone's gonna be fine
One day too late just as well

And I'm not scared now
I must assure you
You're never gonna get away
And I'm not scared now
And I'm not scared now no

I am aware now of how
Everything's gonna be fine one day
Too late, I'm in hell
I am prepared now
Seems everyone's gonna be fine
One day too late, just as well
I am prepared now
Seems everything's gonna be fine for me
For me, for myself
For me, for me, for myself
For me, for me, for myself

    General Comment^ Seether totally rocks, but when it comes to music videos they never do the songs justice.

    Fine Again, goes beyond mere drug addiction. It's about depression and suicide. The narrator clearly has lost the will to live and is coming to turns with what he intends to do (i.e. kill himself).

    The Kübler-Ross model describes, in five discrete stages, the process by which people deal with grief and tragedy, especially when diagnosed with a terminal illness. I think this song encapsulates this perfectly. Someone on the brink with no alternative but to end their life.

    It seems like everyday's the same
    and I'm left to discover on my own

    -life's become mundane and routine, nothing excites the narrator so he becomes withdrawn and despondent. He's in DENIAL that his life has taken such unfulfilling turn.

    It seems like everything is gray
    and there's no color to behold

    -he's emotionally flat, can't relate to a happy/positive state. Everything/one adds to his anxiety/sadness.

    They say it's over and I'm fine again, yeah

    -Loved ones tell him to 'get over it', it being some past traumatic event that's still haunting him. They feel it's time he move on with his life, but he cannot.

    Try to stay sober, feels like I'm dyin', here

    -He tries to appease loved ones, pretend he's normal, okay but on the inside the fakeness is eating away at him. This ANGERS him.

    And I am aware now of how
    everything's gonna be fine one day
    Too late, I'm in hell

    -Comes to the realization that things will never improve for him. The daydream of a better future is shattered by the overwhelming pain/greif/remorse of his present reality. This hints at chronic DEPRESSION.

    I am prepared now,
    seems everyone's gonna be fine

    -He believes the world would be better off without him. Envisions loved ones happier without having to worry about him.

    One day too late, just as well

    -He contemplates/hesistates taking his own life wondering if tommorow will be better. Then decides it won't so he may as well pull the trigger.

    I feel the dream in me expire

    -All hope is gone, will to live deminishing.

    and there's no one left to blame it on

    -Loved ones abandon him, give up trying to fix him. He blamed them for his problems but now sees he's at fault too.

    I hear you label me a liar
    'cause I can't seem to get this through

    -His true feelings cannot be expressed vocally. He wants to change but no one, including himself, believes that he can.

    You say it's over, I can sigh again, yeah

    -This is his own conscience trying to motivate him to rehabilitate himself. He's BARGAINING the pros and cons of living on.

    Why try to stay sober when I'm dyin', here?

    -He questions himself. What's the point of recovery when I'm so close to the edge? Recognizes the futility of living and gives in to suicidal thoughts.

    And I'm not scared now.

    -The stages of greif fulfilled. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Throughout the entire song there's hints of each but this part really captures his ACCEPTING that he's about to die and is okay with it.

    I must assure you,
    you're never gonna get away

    -He has an epiphany that nothing short of death will release his soul from a miserable existence.

    And I'm not scared now.
    And I'm not scared now, No..

    Final doubts being cast aside as he commits suicide.

    seems eveything's gonna be fine for me
    For me; for myself
    For me, for me, for myself
    For me, for me, for myself

    The best outcome for him was ending his misery so now he's in a better place for eternity. He knows loved ones won't understand how he could have left them, but hopes they'll understand it was in his best interest to do it.

    I am pepared now for myself
    I am prepared now, and I am found... again

    He is reborn. A new being. The misery that was his past existence is behind him and he has now found contentment and tranquility.

    The song's pretty deep and sad, but I can totally relate. SEETHER RULES!!

    General Commentthis song is so good, Ive known it for a long time a friend from south africa exposed me to Saron gas (ie: seether, the new improved (?) american band) and this song hasnt changed but its always been good. I think this song is just really questioning the point! Whats the point? Of anything? life, death. Does it matter? Its like people tell him its all going to be fine and its not, people are just assuming and hes the one that pays so dearly, by dying just a little more everytime his hopes are braught up and then dropped again. it says he trys to stay sober but feels like hes dying, then later says WHY stay sober when your dying? Its as if hes trying to stay in one peice but then falls apart ANYWAY at the thought of him already being dead.

    General CommentA really great song. I think it's saying that people tell him that he's fine again and that everything is better. But he feels like everyday is the same. He feels like he's dying but he thought that becoming sober would make everything perfect. People tell him that one day everythings going to be fine for him. And he says that he knows that but he's in hell right now. That one day is to far away, that he wants to be better now.

    General CommentThis song.....it just hits so close to home. I used to be the biggest pot head, but I've stopped smoking for about a year and 8 months. I've been strait-edge for 6 months. But why? I've never been more depressed. I was happy a burn out. This song is so beautiful, and the music just complaments it so. And Shaun's voice......urgh...I hate him it's so good. He sounds like Kurt Cobain. I just want to rip out his vocal cords and eat them and have them for my own. I love it. The only problem I have with this song...is it doesn't give an answer. I'm stuck on that. ::sigh:: Why try?
