"Forget My Name" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Tell all my friends I'm dead
I'm leaving you
This time it's for good
Tell all my friends that I'm dead
It won't be long before you forget
My na-aa-aa-ame

Can you tell that I'm losing myself?
I think I'm trying too hard to
Let it show
To let you know
Don't trace your footsteps back to me

'Cause I've been gone for a long time
Waiting on the sidelines
Hoping for a chance to play

Well, I thought I would never leave anything behind
I also never thought I'd say

Tell all my friends I'm dead
I'm leaving you
This time it's for good
Tell all my friends that I'm dead
It won't be long before you forget
My na-aa-aa-ame

Can't you tell that I don't know myself?
I need someone to remind me
To let it go
Please let me know
Don't trace your footsteps back to me

'Cause I've been gone for a long time
Waiting on the sidelines
Hoping for a chance to play

Well, I thought I would never leave anything behind
I also never thought I'd say


And if I had the chance
(Had the chance)
To do it all again
I wouldn't expect anything less

And if I had the chance
(Had the chance)
To do it all again
I wouldn't expect
I wouldn't expect anything less


Forget my name

    General Commentit's about being lost, wanting to find out who you really are, and needing to get away from everyone and everything that has to do with your past.

    "i've been gone for a long time/ waiting on the sidelines / hoping for a chance to play"

    he doesn't like the way his lifes been turning out. he wants to start over, and he doesn't want anyone to think about him, or who he was before.

    "can you tell/that i don't know myself/i need someone to remind me"

    he wants to meet someone new who will help him find out who he really is. it's not about suicide, it's about self-discovery and hopelessness and, basically, growing up.

    General Commentactually, you might be right, i just found out my "Its been a Summer" has a large, really noticeable skip in it. My rip must be screwed up in some way. Someone plz verify this though

    General CommentLtb, your track listing is for the ADVANCE copy, the Retail version is slightly different and that is what Alucard is showing, also the Retail version is supposed to have two additional tracks which i'm a little confused about because they are listed after "the story so far" which is has the little secret thing after about 23 minutes of silence...
