"Eraser" as written by and Sean Danielson John Parker....
Some days are better, they're better than others
Can't run forever, you're pushing me under
What a way to live my life
I'm hiding from the battles I don't want to fight
What I've become

And now it's going grey
All the lines are blurring and decayed
I can't recall exactly who's to blame, anymore

Is it me or is it you , something isn't right
Of all the things that we could do we just want to fight
Someday I will find the courage to embrace you
Someday I will find the strength to erase you

Some days I think I'm nothing without you
Sometimes I wish that I could just kill you
What a way we live our lives
It's hard to breathe
It feels like I'm infected by my dad's disease

And now it's going grey
And you're the one I chose to feed me pain
And I'm the one you bring home so ashamed,through their eyes

And I see myself in heaven
If I can free myself from this hell

    General CommentThis is about a relationship that is about to end and he knows it. The best line is "it feels like I am infected by my dad's disease". It shows that alot of times people grow up to be their parents and if they divorce, then the kids have a better chance to divorce.

    General CommentThe singer, sean, said it was about being in a relationship when the other person is a jerk and you want to get rid of them. more specifically, he said his mom.

    General CommentI agree with manyamore. I think he realizes the relationship is about to end and hes not sure he will have the strength to erace her but he wants to so he tells himself he will. He feels sometimes that he cant go on wihtout her but then he hates the fighting and everything that goes on.

    I can relate to this i have a boyfriend who i really love and i dont want to leave him but i feel myself needing to. He has major anger issues and we argue everyday well night i should say. The days are good we have a great time then night comes and we end up arguing no matter what. Its hard to get him out of my life becuase were still in schoola dn hes in classes iwht me and i dopnt think i have the strenth to "erace" him but i know if i want to be happy i need to.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who fears confrontation so much so that he'd rather erase the person from his life altogether. (I'm hiding from the battles I don't want to fight)

    The thought of his dad's disease being broken relationships is an excellent idea that had never occured to me before browsing this page.

    General Commentmaybe the "Dad's disease" is a reference to silhuettes, how his father gave up

    General CommentIt's a conflict, he doesn't know weather to embrace or erase the person. Maybe a family member, I'm thinking, because they are the most difficult to cut yourself off from; they're your roots, your childhood. "It feels like I'm infected by my dad's disease", his dad's "disease" could be self-destructive behaviour like running away from problems ("I'm hiding from the battles I don't want to fight") and/or clinging to those who hurt you ("feed me pain").
