"Simon" as written by Ron John Aniello and Jason Wade....
Catch your breath hit the wall scream out loud as you start to crawl back in
Your cage the only place where they will leave you alone 'cause the weak will
Seek the weaker until they've broken them could you get it back again
Would it be the same fulfillment to their lack of strength
At your expense left you with no defense they tore it down and i have
Felt the same as you, I've felt the same as you, I've felt the same
Locked inside the only place where you feel sheltered where you feel safe
You lost yourself in your search to find something else to hide behind
The fearful always preyed upon your confidence

Did they see the consequence when they pushed you around
The arrogant build kingdoms made of the different ones
Breaking them 'til they've become just another crown
Refuse to feel, Anything at all refuse to slip, Refuse to
Fall can't be weak, Can't stand still you watch your back,
'Cause no one will you don't know why they had to go
This far traded your worth for these scars for your only
Company don't believe the lies that they told to you
Not one word was true you're alright, You're alright,
You're alright

    General Commentthis song is simon, a biblical character that helped jesus carry the cross, singing about when jesus was carrying the cross to be crucified. when he says "i have felt the same" he means that he had to carry the cross, when he says "Scream out loud As you start to crawl" he is talking about when jesus fell and practically called out to him before he helped him, and when he says "Fulfillment to their lack of strength" he talks about how the pursecuted Jesus because they where afraid. i could go on but the list is way to long. if you know the part of the bible i am talking about then this will make sense.

    General CommentSorry to burst your bubble but this song is not about the simon in the bible. It's about a friend that Jason had a while back.

    General CommentI don't reckon it's the biblical Simon, or Jason's friend Simon. I think the Simon of the Song is Simon Cowell; it describes how he belittles people, destroys thir dreams and generally preys on their insecurities.

    The whole 'I have felt the same' refers to the fact that Jason and Lifehouse have been at the struggling musician just breaking out stage.

    General CommentI just love this lines:
    'Cause the weak will seek the weaker
    Until they've broken them
    Could you get it back again
    Would it be the same

    Fulfillment to their lack of strength
    At your expense
    Left you with no defense
    They tore it down "


    It made me feel better about myself.

    General CommentI love this song too. I think that many people can relate to the message of this song because it's talking about someone who has been stepped on so many times and now that's all that they know. The song is comforting because through out the song, he's saying that i've felt the same way...sometimes that all we need, just to know that someone's been in the same place that we're in.

    General CommentWow, this song is really great, I can't even express the emotional impact it has on people. Although it is about Jesus, taking into your own views- it's really inspiring. This has got to be my favorite song of all time.

    General Commentim sure your good friends with jason and would know right ponch. how about you quit acting like a wack senile columbo and just listen to the song and there is no way that it could possibly be any closer to the story of simon in the bible.
