"Sugarcoat" as written by Benjamin Burnley, Aaron Fincke, Mark James Klepaski and Jeremy Hummel....
It started again
Claimin' a friend
I couldn't be
I've never been
I'm all alone
Out in the cold
I'll never know
Your sugarcoat
You're ready to blow
You're ready to go
But I'll never know
Your sugarcoat
Is just as sweet as I am

[Chorus]
Look what you did
Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red
What did you say
Willing to drown in a tidal wave
Take me away
Let me believe that you're on your way
Look what you did
Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red

I'm on the floor
Battered and bored
You got a taste
I can't ignore
I'm all alone
Out in the cold
I'll never know
Your sugarcoat
You're ready to blow
You're ready to go
But I'll never know
Your sugarcoat
Is just as sweet as I am

[Chorus: x2]

Red
Your eyes are red

    General CommentThis song is called "Sugarcoat" and it is the hardest song on the album. Ironic?

    General CommentI think its about someone who loves a girl and he sees them switching partners alot.
    (It started again
    Claimin' a friend
    I couldn't be
    I've never been)

    he wishes he could be with her and he stands outside during winter staring in at her through her window wishing.
    (I'm all alone
    Out in the cold)

    He realises that he'll never know her innocence and this saddens him and makes him feel empty.
    (I'll never know
    Your sugarcoat)

    Then one day she chooses him and tells him they'll run away and live together. but he still feels the emptienss from not knowing her innocence.
    (You're ready to blow
    You're ready to go
    But I'll never know
    Your sugarcoat)

    there are signs like this all through the song but i dont want to spend too much time writing this one as im writing as many as i can.

    thats just my opinion about this song.

    General CommentI think that he means that he wants to be with someone that will not let him. He then realizes that she is not nearly as nice as she seems. He still wants her because he sees that wonderful exterior and can't help but want her, even after she hurts him over and over again.

    General Commenti think's it's vulnerability. being desperate enough and lonely enough to fall into someone else's dark and dangerous world. he becomes over the top in it,worse than his friends,and realizes his friend is just is horrible for letting him turn into them,and he's really rebelling against them.

    sounds like a movie,doesn't it?

    General CommentLOVE the hardcore of it.

    i think it's about vulnerability.like,being out in the cold- and some not-so-great person will take them in. they get involved in some bad shit with that person-and they realize that beneath that person isn't great like they thought when the person took them in. so that person's angry at what they did for letting them,watching them,and making them feel as if they needed to be do that thing.

    General Commentand yes it is ironic that it's called sugarcoat and it's the hardest.

    but the whole world is irony,isn't it?

    General CommentAs far as I can tell, it's about pretending to be someone you're not, or at least pretending to care about someone. The sugarcoat makes them seem nice, but inside, they aren't so sweet. People like that piss me off, so if I wrote a song about it, it would be loud like this, that's why it's the hardest on the album.
