"Where Do We Go From Here" as written by Richard Michael Patrick and Geno Lenardo....
These half-truths you're telling me
Won't bring me to my knees
Scraped up and bruised
From your fickleness I plead
Just let me feel some ease
From creatures of your greed
Just let me feel some ease from me

I'm not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
Till you think it's over
I just?yeah yeah yeah

Where do we go from here
You know I'm not the only one
Where do we go from here
You know I'm not your only son
Where do we go from here
Stop dreaming 'bout the shiny gun
Where do we go from here
No, I'm not the only one

These broken dreams are screams to me
The difference I can't see
The way you look and talk to me
Your cross at me I freeze
The combination of lost control
The loss of soul, I wheeze
Just give some ease to me

I'm not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
Till you think it's over
I just?yeah yeah yeah

Where do we go from here
You know I'm not the guilty one
Where do we go from here
You know I'm not your only son
Where do we go from here
Stop dreaming 'bout the shiny gun
Where do we go from here
No, I'm not the only one

    General Comment"Where Do We Go From Here" is a plaintive cry, reflecting young people's confusion at what paths to take and what decisions to make for the future. From the the "half-truths" of the media, to the fickleness of societal trends, the narrator is not so glad "he met you", meaning society and the world in general. The things in the world that make him "scraped and bruised", and the unhealthy relationships that make him "wheeze", make him desperate for some sort of escape. It all "makes him want to go away", but as the chorus exclaims, "stop dreaming 'bout the shiny gun"; suicide is not the answer.

    General Commentits about generation x and y and all the changes they were going through as a while over the past couple of years, about coming out 9/11, about the influence of violence and trying to stay away from it all (stop dreaming about your shiney gun)

    just about being fucking confused as to what to do after everything is crumbling apart

    General Commentfrom my perspective, this is about someone confused about where they're at in life and has no clue what to do next, and knows that "u know im not the only one" in the same postition, but still asking the same question, "where do we go from here." describes me i dont know about u

    General CommentAtleast Rich Patrick writes about different themes than other artists. I think the lyrics are saying a number of things, but in general it's about teenage life.

    General CommentSounds like another failed romance. She cheats on him and is very good at hiding it, however he eventually finds out. It makes him want to go away. (suggestive of suicide when in conjunction with the "shiny gun") Ultimately, they still love each other. He then wonders and asks.. "Where do we go from here?"

    One of my fav Filter songs.

    General CommentFirst off, sorry about all the ?'s in there, but I just couldnt figure out what he was singing. If anyone can help, pleae go through and correct it. And there are some lyrics in there I'm not really sure about, so if you know the right ones, go through and correct them.

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple who use to love each other very much but now they really hate each other.Example: a marriage on the edge of divorce. Each blames the other for what went wrong in the relationship but in reality it's both of their faults. And they're questioning where do they go from here. They're not sure if they want to end the relationship or not.
