"Remember" as written by David Draiman, Dan Donegan, Steve Kmak and Mike Wengren....
Sensation washes over me
I can't describe it
Pain I felt so long ago
I don't remember
Tear a hole so I can see
My devastation
Feelings from so long ago
I don't remember

Holding on, to let them know
What's given to me
To hide behind
The mask this time
And try to believe

Blind your eyes to what you see
You can't embrace it
Leave it well enough alone
And don't remember
Cut your pride and watch it bleed
You can't deny it
Pain you know you can't ignor
I don't remember

Holding on, to let them know
What's given to me
To hide behind
The mask this time
And try to believe

Blind your eyes to what you see
You can't embrace it
Leave it well enough alone
And don't remember
Cut your pride and watch it bleed
You can't deny it
Pain you know you can't ignore
I don't remember

If I can
Remember
To know this will
Conquer me
If I can
Just walk alone
And try to escape
Into me

    General CommentI think this song is saying that it is easier to hide your feelings, and forget your past, so you wont have to remember the pain, or feel the pain that you once had, and no one will judge you based on what happened to you previously... but, thats just me =P i love this song... hits really "close to home"...

    General Commentwhat the fuck, saying "this song rules, this song is awesome, i love disturbed" isnt giving the song any meaning, shit, people are so retarded, 'Remember' is about — not focusing on all of the existential chaos that's going on around me and not necessarily getting drawn back into bad habits.

    General CommentOk, first thing's first... this song is probably my favorite Disturbed song. I love it because the first time I heard it, I thought it sounded distinctively different from Disturbed's other songs and you just gotta love the lyrics!

    Anyways... I'm not entirely sure what David's singing about in this song... but I DO think it's pretty obvious that he's singing about how a person can hide behind a false facade in an attempt to ignore and forget the pain he/she has felt in the past.... meh... sorry for pointing out the obvious, but that's all I can think of right now :P

    General Commentthere is really alot more to be said other than "this song is cool." i really think "Holding on to let them know" and "And try to believe" is really saying the he is going to stay strong and believe in himself because and wants everyone to know that all he needs is belief in himself.

    that's awesome. i mean, can anyone believe in you if you don't believe in yourself?

    General CommentI read an interveiw with the singer of the band and he said the song is about remembering not to drink too much (or not at all) or else his voice will get fucked up. The way David sings, he really shouldn't drink or smoke or else he'll fuck his voice up and then there is no Disturbed.

    General CommentSaw an interview on MuchMusic on a show called Uranium where David explains the songs meaning.

    He stated that it is hard to go back and live a normal life, now that he and other band members are "famous". He often feels he hides behind a mask and it hard to really be himself.
