"Ode" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
Hang me, watch awhile
Let me see you smile as I die
Take me, as my body burns
Let me see you yearn, while I cry

One step on your own
And you walk all over me
One head in the clouds
You won't let go
You're too proud
One light to the blind, and they see
One touch on the head, we believe

Adore me as I drift away
Let me hear you say I'm fine
You cry as my body dies
All that you despised is gone away

One step on your own
And you walk all over me
One head in the clouds
You won't let go, you're too proud
One light to the blind, and they see
One touch on the head, we believe
We believe

One step on your own
And you walk all over me
One head in the clouds
You won't let go, you're too proud
One light to the blind, and they see
One touch on the head, we believe
We believe

    General CommentThis song is about how people hide their true identity. They make think that they are someone else, when they really aren't.
    Good song.

    General CommentTo me this means that there is someone who they either can't show their true feelings of hate to or the person is in a relashinship with someone who ain't worth shit for what they are and doesn't want to admit it even in their final moments of life. "You won't let go, your to proud" Or at least thats what I see.

    General Commenti dunno this song always strikes me as people taking supreme advantage of someone after they have been given countless chances. Almost gives u the feeling that they will never be happy with the impossible. Always wanting more. "one step on your own and you walk all over me" , "one head in the clouds
    you wont let go
    youre too proud "

    General CommentThis song can be taken many different ways. In general, I think it is about bullying; not just the bullying of a school bully, but also about the media as being a bully. It's about people who use you to get to a fake level of happiness.
    The line, you won't let go, you're too proud is my favorite. I see it as a person who thinks they are acting the way they should, and are proud they can act this way. The attitude discusts me, but the song is an anthem.

    General CommentThey sound like Alice In Chains in this song. I really like it, I think its about someone hurting the singer, after the singer has done everything to make things better for the person.

    Its kind of confusing, especially at the beginning (the chorus is more clear) but I really love this song. It's one of my favorites.

    Take me as my body burns
    Let me see you yearn, while I cry

    General CommentThe song seems to be about where somebody is using Scott Stapp (i guess since he wrote it) and instead of leaving him be, they keep doing it, carelessly and giving the impression of enjoying every minute of it.
