"Straight Out Of Line" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
There's no reason
There's no compromise
Change in seasons
Living the high life
I don't know you
So don't freak on me
I can't control you
You're not my destiny

Straight out of line
I can't find a reason
Why I should justify my ways
Straight out of line
I don't need a reason
You don't need to lie to me

I'll confess this you're my tragedy
I paid you to rest this
As fast as you turned on me
Gone for ever
Vanished the memories
This face of pleasure
Are masked by your misery

Straight out of line
I can't find a reason
Why I should justify my ways
Straight out of line
I don't need a reason
You don't need to lie to me
Lie to me

Straight out of line
I can't find a reason
Why I should justify my ways
Straight out of line
I don't need a reason
You don't need to, don't need to lie to me

Lie to me
Lie to me
Lie to me

    General Commentthis may just be the greastest Godsmack song ever. the lyrics are great, and they're an awesome band. it almost expresses how sully (the singer) feels about society, and the people around him. for those of you who hate godsmack, well, go away

    General CommentArgh I just did some really mean things to someone and I feel really guilty and all I feel like saying to them now I've heard this song is: "Straight out of line/ I can't find a reason/ Why I should justify my ways/ Straight out of line/ I dont need a reason/ You don't need to lie to me" But I'd probably get hit.

    General CommentShannon Larkin is probably one of the greatest drummers ever he created such an amazing stlye unlike anything i've ever seen before he is my favorite drummer. I sort of modeled my stlye after him. Yeah go ahead say i'm riping him of but it's only when i play godsmack songs do i use his stlye ya know just to give the viewer a awsome feel like godsmack gives off. But when i play my bands own songs you can tell he plays and inspiration roll but i don't rip him off.

    General Commentit rocks, it is great, their new drummer is sooo crazy, and awesome. there is no way anyone with a respectable taste in music doesn't like them.

    General CommentIn an interview Sully said that this song is about how people were saying how the band was changing...but it's really the people changing. He also said they related to the Little Engine that Could in that other bands go up really fast and back down but these guys are taking it all one step at a time.

    General Commentyes this song is awesome as is the entire "Faceless" album. Godsmack has gotta be one of the few bands of today that make good music

    oh, king nothing, i heard Sully say in an interview that Tommy left due to disputes about which direction to take in their music.

    or something like that. sorry i have a bad memory

    General CommentYes, I now realize that Godsmack may be actually trying to "be" the bands that inspired them. i.e.:
    Metallica, Pantera, especially Alice in Chains (they even released an acoustic EP now). If it weren't for Tony's excellent guitar playing I wouldn't even pay this band any mind.

    By the way, Tommy was thrown out because he required too much maintenance.
