Do you understand what I'm trying to say?
Have you ever felt?
Have you ever felt this way?
Tainted with rage you can't drain away
or it will cost you your life.
I couldn't care more.
Do you ever absorb what shouldn't be touched?
Have you ever cared?
Ever cared this much?
Do you think it is I who is out of touch,
or are you too scared to think at all?
I couldn't€ care more.
As your friends fall does it tear your heart?
Do tears fill your eyes as your world falls apart?
Do you notice at all, or are you sailing sublime?
Am I completely alone?

    General Commenti agree with pravdawglerz....i have felt this way before because of a girl, and it was a more than fitting song to listen to at the time

    General CommentThis song is so aggressive and hardcore, Davey really goes all out on the vocals. It is probably one of my least favorite on SYMAOYE, but it is still great. I think the meaning of the song is fairly obvious.

    General CommentIs it just me.. or does this song lack a bass line..? Kresge wrote most of the music back then, but I guess this song was written by Mark and Kresge couldn't come up with a line to suit it. It definately sounds good, even without the bass, though.

    General CommentWhen I hear this song, I think of Dave sitting down at a table in some little cafe in Berkely. Across from him is the devil, all red and flaming with emo glasses, and he's asking Davey, "So how does that make you feel?"

    Maybe it's just my overactive imagination....

    General CommentI think this song is about getting so pissed off at God and choosing not to believe in him.
    Then later you go to hell.

    OR, it could be a suicide song. You get so mad at the world, and you just kill yourself.
    Then later you go to hell.

    General Commentwell, i think that he's saying the devil loves you when you feel this way. the devil loves evil, and we all have our evil moments. he must be having one of those evil moments. he never says its right, hes just simply stating the facts.
