"Leave It Behind" as written by and Bryan Holland....
Rage burns can't push it aside now
Can't forgive this grudge is alive now
All the rage eats you up inside
Can you leave it behind

What a surprise --
You're fucked with again Yeah
It's a way of life you need to get over
All the rage just eats you alive

Can you leave it behind
I don't know where it'll end
The sun has set
And I can't be friends

I don't know if I can forgive
The day is long
But you were so dead wrong

    It's a way of life you need to get over."
    Alrighty geniuses, lets think about that... He's talking about being fucked with by other people, saying that they are wrong, but you don't have to be... "Can't you leave it behind". It's more of a Hate the hater songer, but just turn away... to me.

    General CommentI think it's more than hating someone for a stupid reason. The song seems pretty definitive that the other person is "so dead wrong" and there isn't a part of the song where a sentiment of repetence is suggested. I think it's more of a testament of his inability to be friends with the other person and perhaps the continual "leave it behind" displays his desire to forgive/forget yet ultimately "you were so dead wrong." So it goes, I suppose. Sometimes people are so different, however idealistic I tend to be, it's reality and in reality a friendship isn't possible. So... Leave it Behind. let go.

    General Comment"Rage, it burns, can't push it aside now,"
    he is holdong a grudge which is so bad he can't forget about it

    "Can't forgive this grudge is alive now"
    he can't forgive the person he has a grudge against

    "All the rage eats you up inside.
    Can't you leave it behind?
    Can you leave it behind?"
    he is so angry it is taking over his life (eating him up inside) and he wants to forget about it and leave it behind but can't

    "What a surprise, your fucked with again, yeah!
    It's a way of life you need to get over."
    he is in another fight with the same person and they need to get over it

    "I don't know, where it will end"
    he doesn't know when or if it will end

    "The sun has set, and I can't be friends"
    his final decision is that he can't be friends

    "I don't know, if I can forgive,
    The day is long, but you were so dead wrong"
    he doesn't think he can forgive this person as the grudge has gone on for so long and he is wrong

    General CommentHe is trying to move on. He can't forgive and can't be friends either so the only way is to move on.
