"Driven Under" as written by and Shaun Welgemoed....
Do you think I'm faking
When I'm lying next to you?
Do you think that I am blind
Nothing left for me to lose?
Must be something on your mind
Something lost and left behind
Do you know I'm faking now?

Do you know I'm faking
When I'm lying next to you?
Do you know that I am blind to everything you ever do?
Must be something on your mind
Something lost for me to find
Do you know I'm faking

Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before on him
Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before, oh man

I guess you know I'm faking
When I tell you I love you
I guess you know that I am blind
To everything you say and do
Must be something on my mind
There's nothing left for me to hide
Do you know I'm faking

Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before on him
Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before, oh man

We have to succumb to the feelings we can never face
I need you, I breathe you,
I can't go through this all again
We have to succumb to
The feelings we can never face I need you
I breathe you, I can't go through this

Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before

Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before on him
Then she told me she had a gun
It sounded like she'd used It once before, oh man
Then she told me she had a gun
She says she wants to use It on me now

    General Commenti half way agree with SerjCobain except there are a few lines that dont make sense with his idea. but most of it does make sense. my first thought was that it was about a guy and a girl that was together and her past bf had left her(must be something on your mind,something lost and left behind) and she didnt want him to leave so she shot him(she told me she had a gun and it sounded like she used it once before on him) and know she is so paranoid that it will happen again so she thinks that her current bf is going to leave her(do you think im faking when im lying next to you) and when she confronts him about it he thinks she is crazy(which she is) and he cant deal with it anymore so he doesnt love her anymore but he doesnt want to break up with her cuz she will kill him too. but he tells her that they cant be together(we have to succumb to the feelings we can never face) so she says she will kill him(she says she wants to use it on me now). i could be wrong but thats what i think. either way its an awesome song.

    General CommentCobain is way off. And the reason is because I was reading an interview that Shaun did with Kissrocks FM out of San Antonio Texas and he said,
    "It's about how a relationship can get so out of control and crazy. Like the relationship my Mom and Dad had. They were crazy. The relationship was crazy. And, it's just about any relationship can get to that point. So out of control..." So, the song is about his parents, and metophorically, for any relationship that is like the one they had.
    Not trying to sound like a know it all...
    That's the last thing I wanna do...That isn't a good way to make friends... So, sorry if I do...
    Catch you all later...

    General CommentYou all think this song is about Cobain's conspiracy murder!? How fucking dumb are you? Didn't you see the post by TornadoNHS? He said that Shaun said during a concert that this song is about his mother! IF you think about it in that light it actually makes perfect sense! You always hear stories about these women who go balistics and crazy and end up brutally mudering their cheating/abusing/whatever husbands. If you think about the song in that light everything falls into place. You know not every rock song in the world is about some guy and girl who are dating, there are some songs that are more than that, like this one. And when a band can pump out a song that's more than that, it makes it a much greater song and in turn makes the band much much greater. Rock on Seether!!!

    General CommentIn MY opinion I take this song as a guy and a girl in love, then the girl lets the guy know that she's really hurted her last boyfriend (emotionally like she cheated on him or sumthin):

    Then she told me she had a gun
    it sounded like she'd used it once before on him

    Idk i take it as that we all have different opinions and this is mine

    General CommentAltough the band may think Kurt was shot there still is no evidence that he shot himself.

    General CommentI love this song. I can't believe more people haven't commented on it. I never really thought about the Kurt Cobain thing but I guess it does make sense... Anyways, great band. They rock live.
