"Damone" as written by and Abran Cunningham Abe Cunningham....
Sleep in this hole
Stinging in your eyes
Ashamed, for you, cause
So far, i've been down that's true
Shake in lie
About to fall
Ashamed, for you
Cause,
So far i've been down that's true
Except for your arms
You start, stand still
And shove regret back at me
Ask you why
What's up?
Ask you why
One, two
Why, why why why
Soon i've been you
Laughter, sigh
So ashamed for you, cause
This feeling gets old
And so do your eyes
This is why, i hate you, cause
So far, i've been down that's true
Except for you're arms, you just
Smile, stand still
While you look right back at me!

    General Commentit's a real bastard having to skim through the bit between mx and this to get to, in my opinion, one of the best songs off 'around the fur'. but it's worth the wait. fucking kickass song. anyways, that's what i think...

    General Commentwhy does chino likes the word "shove"..i think there are 3 lyrics on this albun with shove involved......anyway deftones is the best new metal band ever..they have their own style and there's no other band like them.

    General Commentnu metal does not exist. it is a stupid term the record companies made up so that the mainstream public wouldn't be confused by the terms emo, emo-core, hard-core, or anything relative. please don't ever use that term when refering to the almighty deftones.

    General CommentIf you listen closely to the noises at 19:30, it's some of the band members toking up.

    General Commenti think maybe this song is about people falling out of love with eachother. but they don't want to believe it. ????

    General Commentmy best guess is that he likes a girl, and he told her, but she doesn't do anything about it, and he hates feeling that way about her. like when he says "smile, stand still, while you look right back at me" like she just looks at him and doesn't say anything, making him feel like an ass. also when he says "shove regret back at me" as though he regrets telling her. but really i have no idea what it's about.

    General CommentOf course, nobody wants, in this situation, to face truth. He's had truth shoved in his face, knowing that he no longer loves her (his own independant decision). He doesn't want her arms, but can't escape her gaze.

    General Commentyup, "this feeling gets old" (loving her) "and so do your eyes" (he jsut doesnt love her anymore) "this is why, i hate you, cause" (i think he hates her, coz he doesn't love her anymore and he feels guilty so it makes him hate her... uh, or something liek that, i dunno, but its a really good song)
