"Intro" as written by Juliette Lewis and Omar Rodriguez Lopez....
Thank you to the people in my life
For putting up with me
And thank you for the times you sacrificed
All on account of me

For all the times I didn't say
The times I didn't say
For all the times I didn't say
The times I didn't say

Fuck you to the jaded and the fake
Like to see what you would do
Fuck you and the judgments that you make
We're not all perfect just like you
Like you, like you

For all the times I didn't say
The times I didn't say
For all the times I didn't say
The times I didn't say

All the times I didn't say
All the times I didn't say
Thank you to the people in my life
For putting up with me

    General Comment*speechless* another hard-hitting, truthful song, by yours truly ... Aaron.

    This song is my motto and also my theme song ... thanking all the people who've put up with me when I was difficult and stubborn, and the wasted time I think they've spent on me, which really wasn't a waste of time at all; this is the perfect song for any introvert who has a hard time letting people know how they feel, a dedication & proclamation.

    Fuck the weak and the fake people in the world & the judgements they dish out on each and everyone of us ... thinking their perfect and in reality far from it.

    General CommentThis song reminds me so much of Korns "4U". I get so much of a sense that he's not just talking to the poeple he really knows and loves... like he's talking to his fans. I mean, if you've ever been to a concert for any band like this... the overwhelming feeling you get realizing that just about every single person there has felt like you at one time or another and this band is your connection. Can you imagine how it would feel for someone like Aaron Lewis? Stainds music, while also being really well written songs with a deeper meaning are just crying and bitching on the surface... it's almost like he's going over it all and saying "I'm sorry for complaining so much. I just didn't see the world like I do now, but thank you for making me see it. Thank you for letting me know I'm not alone."

    At least that's the way I look at it...

    General CommentI really like this song and I am glad they chose it to be the last shade of grey on their 14 shades of grey album. Fuck the jaded and the fake.

    General CommentAmazing. Aaron always knows how to end an album. Although it's named Intro, it's a perfect ending to 14 Shades. Absolutely amazing.
