blind to the answers, find yourself,
walk for the moment, find the reason in yourself,
theres a reason for you and i,
take this time to find a meaning,
a reason to sit back and measure the worst 6 years of my life,
waiting for your legs to close on my best friends,
last night i saw your life flash before my eyes,
why did i laugh so hard baby?
(you won't be back and i'm still laughing)
i never meant to hurt you (but i did)
i'm sorry that you cried so hard darling,
i'll never hurt you again,
take this time to find your tongue,
a sorry excuse to stop your lies,
the best 30 seconds of my life,
my angel take your pills,
my angel i sold your ring,
and now i can't stop laughing,
i didnt want it this way,
i hope you're happy where you are
and i'm glad to say i put you there,
who's the one that's laughing now,
i'm the one who's laughing now
(now theres nothing left to say
i hope you're feeling my embrace, and i can't sleep)
you should have left me sleeping,
you should have let me sleep...

    General Commentthis song is so damn good! it has everything, heavy and melodic parts. sounds alot like old glassjaw. it's obviously about a girl. great song.

    General Commentthis song is very paradoxical. there is the apology: "i never meant to hurt you (but i did)
    i'm sorry that you cried so hard darling,
    i'll never hurt you again"...and yet there is also the seemingly hateful mocking of " who's the one that's laughing now,
    i'm the one who's laughing now"...i get a really bittersweet, regretful tone from this one.

    General Commentit's about dan's ex-fiance...they had an argument about the engagement ring. note the "my angel...i sold your ring..." something like that...

    General Commenti think its about a girl that cheated on him, and now he wants to kill her, or he did...thats where you get the "a reason to sit back and measure the worst 6 years of my life, waiting for your legs to close on my best friends" and then it goes into "i never meant to hurt you (but i did)" and that sort of stuff...you know..cause she wont be back, cause shes dead...
