"Crawl" as written by and Mathew Thomas Skiba Daniel Michael Andriano....
Waking up zeroed in on medicine
Am I waking up at all today
Seeing lights, feeling pain
There's my cure on ice

I can walk but I will crawl there
I will crawl there
Sitting straight, feeling faint
An exhausted smile screens my words

But I will hear them
Here's a phrase that we all know
But I can't make sense
I don't know words but I will hear them

I still hear them
Never ran away for the sake of scars
Tried not to move but she was armed
And shots were fired

Now a hole in the head of this wounded liar
Never had a drink that I didn't like
Got a taste of you, threw up all night
I got more sick

With every sour second rate kiss
Everything I never would miss again
I don't know who your boyfriend is

    General CommentI don't understand people who say bands have sold out. I mean how naive can one person be. How can people survive without money? It's not wrong to spread your music to other people. The reality of selling out is that the old fans don't get to feel special anymore by knowing an underground band. You can't wear their t-shirts around anymore because some preppie kid might come up to you and tell you they love the band too. In any case Alkaline Trio are a band that you can always relate to, and listening to them helps you release anger when you feel used and unwanted by girls. The truth is any person in a band like the Alkaline Trio would take any money they could. You only live once and you need to make the most of life. You can't slow down because some teenage-punker doesn't like the new faces at your shows.

    General CommentThis is the greatest Alkaline Trio song ever. It expresses every emotion they are feeling as they sing this song and the ending line just sort of seals it.

    General Commentthis is such a brilliant song its liek he's weary of thinking bout her..."i don't care who you're boyfriend is"....she's saying like "do you KNOW who my boyfriend is?!" and he's just bored of her and her shit....shes trying to finish him off and give him even more shit even after they broke up. and he's saying he wont miss her again cause teh break up is showing her true colours.....great song love it loads. xxxx

    General CommentI can relate to this song, where he says "and shots were fired, into the hole of the head of this wounded liar"... it was all i listened to when i broke up with one of my girlfriends... Alk3 is one of the most talented underated bands ever... all who pre-ordered matt skiba's guitar raise your hand *raises hand*

    General Commentthis song is completely infectious, i get it stuck in my head every single time i hear it. i love all of alk3's songs, but this is definitely up there as one of my favorites. "Never had a drink that I didn't like Got a taste of you, threw up all night" totally my favorite two lines of this song. they're meanful without being sappy. perfect.
