"Little Black Backpack" as written by and Phalon Anton/wallace Alexander....
Well I know it, it's a shame
A shame I can't show it,
I see it, I can see
It now but I'm so far below it

Don't want to, don't want to talk about it,
I say why not,
Don't want to think about it,
I say there's got to be some good reason
For your little black backpack up,
Smack, turnaround he's on his back and

Don't want to tango with you,
I'd rather tangle with him,
I think I'm gonna bash his head in,
And this shouldn't concern
You except that just don't expect to get
Your bloody black backpack back

I can feel you, yes I can what about that
Don't you understand,
And I sense you,
Its something sensual but its less than I
Planned

Don't want to, don't want to talk about it,
I say why not,
Don't want to think about it,
I say there's got to be some good reason
For your little black backpack up,
Smack, turnaround he's on his back and

Don't want to tango with you,
I'd rather tangle with him,
I think I'm gonna bash his head in,
And this shouldn't concern
You except just don't expect to get
Your bloody black backpack back

You're trying to find a reason for the way you feel tonight,
You're mind is lined with layers of lead,
Have you heard one thing that I've said

Don't want to talk about it,
I say why not,
Don't want to think about it,
I say there's got to be some good reason
For your little black backpack up,
Smack, turnaround he's on his back and

Don't want to tango with you,
I'd rather tangle with him,
I think I'm gonna bash his head in,
And this shouldn't concern
You except just don't expect to get
Your bloody black backpack back (twice)

    General CommentYou really don't know what it's about? I thought it's pretty obvious.

    It's about a jealous guy and his girlfriend. She let's a guy hold her little black backpack, and he goes off in a jealous rage and beats the fuck out of him. The other verses are about how he tries to talk to her, but she just doens't "get it" about how this tears him up.

    So when he see's her with the guy holding her backpack, he won't talk or work things out with her, he just straight up wants to kick the guys ass.

    There ya go

    General Commenti think it's about the songwriters girlfriend cheating on him... and instead of talking things out with his gf... he'd rather just take out all his pent up aggression on the guy she's cheating with... i dunno about the whole backpack thing lol

    JUST AN OPINION

    General Commentactually maybe it's about he breaking up with her and the beating the shit outta him........and she left her black backpack at his place or something.......isnt it?

    i mean i think it makes more sense than breaking up with the girl cause a stupid guy just held her backpack...whatever
    i just met stroke 9 (as in heard of them) and they're a great great band...good music and all. hope to hear more from them.

    General CommentI saw them in concert,
    and before this song was played they said
    "this is for everyone that has been cheated on."

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty obvious. His girl cheated on him and he doesnt want see her anymore, but he wants to take out his rage on the guy she was with. He wants nothing to do with the girl, but she cant expect to get her "black backpack back" because she cheated on him. the backpack just resembles anything that couples fight over when they break up.

    General CommentI think it's about a person who just lets things slip off their back.. and how one of their friends is like "come on.. defend yourself" and the person won't defend themself so the other person sticks up fro them and gets mad that they have to..
    i donno...
    i like the song tho..
