"Don't Understand" as written by Al Sparhawk, Mimi J. Parker and Zachary Micheletti....
Carry the weight
And wait at the last
Bloodied my leg
And buried my fist
I don't understand
I don't understand
I send it away
Now it's back in my breast
And drag you to town
Treat you just like a son
Alone in my house
Did they teach you to run?
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand

    General CommentI believe this is one of Low's most brutal songs. It is just so... sort-of straightforward, but also, it is slightly cryptic, making it so the vision in your head about this song could be right, though it may be different from another persons' thoughts.

    The song feels like it deals with irritation, that is... well, incomprehensible. Something that gets deep in the skin. Powerful to me, at being a six minute song of not understanding.

    General Commenti never really paid much attention to the lyrics in this song but its always been a favourite of mine.

    looking at them now they kind of make me think of someone who has to deal with raising a step child..or an adopted child who has gone back to its natural parents, and how they can only be seen as a burden.
