"Could It Be" as written by Michael Mushok, Aarron Lewis, Jonathan Wysocki and John April....
Well I don't know what to say
Because there's truth to what you say
I know it kills you I'm this way
There's something different every day

Could it be that
I never had the chance to grow inside?
Could it be that
My habit is to find a place to hide
Could it be that
Sometimes I say things just to disagree?
Could it be that
I'm only being me?

Not easy living in my mind
A little peace is hard to find
My every thought is undermined
By all the history inside

Could it be that
I never had the chance to grow inside?
Could it be that
My habit is to find a place to hide
Could it be that
Sometimes I say things just to disagree?
Could it be that
I'm only being me?

I know I hear the words you said
Over and over again
I just can't get them through my head
There's just too many voices
Must be like living with the dead
Waiting for me to begin
To do the things I have said
And for this I'm sorry
So there's some truth to what you say

Could it be that
I never had the chance to grow inside?
Could it be that
My habit is to find a place to hide
Could it be that
Sometimes I say things just to disagree?
Could it be that
I'm only being me?

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Epiphany, "I am nothing more the a little boy inside that cries out for attention, yet I always try to hide", this song sounds like it's about his childhood, and has continued well into his life, and is still plagued by it; like how he was robbed early in life from nurturing things, and they've followed him.

    "Find a place to hide" "Say things just to disagree" "I'm only being me" He's describing in a sensitive, defense way that he's only being himself.

    General CommentI notice in this entire album it seems to be how at least two people relate to each other. It's like a conversation between Aaron and possibly a friend. Possibly a lover. Or a daughter. Now it is Aaron that is explaining himself to another. Telling the other person that he is sorry he is this certain way, because he has been through so much.

    I think a big thing about this song is about accepting yourself. That we all have our flaws and issues. We have things that affect us a certain way. Don't isolate that from who you are, because that is a part of who you are. I used to fight tooth and nail against my ego, trying to suppress my wants and desires because I thought they were dirty or evil. But, that stuff is a part of who you are.

    So Aaron is basically saying yes there is truth to how this other person is describing him. He won't deny that. He won't deny who he is.

    General CommentThis song takes you back to "Break The Cycle".. Aaron once again describes the pain, he has to go through.. And even now, when he's beginning to feel better, there's still something left inside of him. A memory, of what has been. And when you know of the things, he has been trough, you can easily understand, that it's not just something, that gets better over night. It takes time.

    He's showing us inside himself. Telling us the things, that kind of makes him think, that he's worthless. He knows, that he hurts his wife, or close friend, (I don't know, who he had in mind, when he wrote the song, but it's obvious, that the person is very close to him) with the things he say and do, but it's kind of a pattern, he can't break lose from, although he wish, he could.

    But.. I think he's going in the right direction. The song "So Far Away" describes, that he's getting better.. But still.. As he says here; "It's not easy living in his mind"..

    General CommentIm not seeing how this is about his early childhood. To me this is just about people not accepting who he is in some inner circle maybe or possibly a lover. This to me is just saying that theres some stuff that we all do that others cant stand and that nobody is perfect. "Could it be that sometimes I say things just to disagree" Alot of people do that, including me. Its just one of those things that you have to live with, which to me, is what this song is about. Thats just my POV, though.

    General Commentthe first time i heard this song i took a heavy likein to it. it reminds me alot of my recent relationship i was in. i feel it has alot to do with someone who is insecure in a way...from an early childhood or jus a relationship they had been in that really effected them...hintin "its not easy livin in my mind, a little piece is hard to find, my everythought is undermined, BY ALL THE HISTORY INSIDE.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful. i feel that way so much it's pathetic. staind, to me, is therapy. i think he's just saying that sometimes, he doesn't quite know how to handle things, but it doesn't mean that he doesn't care. he does... alot... enough to right a song about it.

    General CommentI agree with bascially everyone above. He does seem to talk about his childhood alot..There could be some of that in this song...but of course thats not what its all about..Bad childhood usually gives a person insecure feelings and such..

    Im listening to this song now..hehehe
