"Skorn" as written by and Ticotin....
Dear John,
I'm sorry
I can't do this anymore
You're not the man I fell in love with
And I have to move on with my life.
Goodbye

Goodbye [3x]

You were the one who'd never leave
Beautiful eyes, you seemed so free
Touching your face I felt complete
Holding your hand my heart would weep

So everything that came out of your mouth
Was full of lies
You looked me right dead in the eyes
You'd call your girlfriends and tell them that
I abused your trust
You did your best to demonize

You were the one who'd never leave
Beautiful eyes, you seemed so free
Touching your face I felt complete
Holding your hand my heart would weep

You were the one who raped my soul
Beautiful lies, you stole my hope
Touching your ass, I scratch the skin
Holding your neck, I tie the rope...
Pulling it tight

You were the one who'd never leave
Beautiful eyes, you seemed so free
Touching your face I felt complete
Holding your hand my heart would weep

You were the one, the one for me
Now that you're gone it's hard to see
So much of me has gone away
There's no need to stay another day
But someone's got to pay [8x]

    General Commentfirst of all id like to say that this album is great and i wish RA would put out another quality album like this.

    and now on to this song..this is one of my favorite songs on the album. He apparently loves this woman, but cant forgive her for breaking her promises that she'd love him forever and for hurting him like she did. THEN she tried to blame it on him. This takes it alittle to an extreme but it captures the emotions quite nicely

    General CommentRA definitely should put out another album. I like their music.

    This song is obviously about a failing relationship. The guy is not upset about his "girlfriend" leaving because she has just become a bother to him. He had once loved her, it seems, but she treated him so badly and returned no love; just ridicule and humiliation. She blames all the problems within their relationship on him when it is most likely her fault. Once the guy pretty much realized how bad he had it with her, she just up and left. And he just didn't care.

    General CommentDUALITY is their new album, set for release in March, 2005. I've heard preview tracks, and guys, it's gonna rock your socks off!! rafans.net has them available to listen to.

    I'd agree with the above posts, except for the last lines..
    "You were the one, the one for me
    Now that you're gone it's hard to see
    So much of me has gone away
    There's no need to stay another day
    (But someone's got to pay)"

    Revenge.. yeah baby! He's pretty given up on everything, but he won't be able to rest peacefully until he has taken care of the one last thing bothering him. Maybe its another guy, maybe its her.. only Sahaj knows!!

    General CommentIn this song apparently Sahaj made some record for the longest single note, but I can't seem to find it. I came here to make sure the lyrics matched the song I'm listening to and it does so, uhm yeah, can anyone lead me to it?

    Other than that slight bother, this song is really kickass.

    General CommentThis is in response to Passngr's comment.
    In my mind this is RAs best song ever... but only the live one. RA has a live CD called "raw" the version he does on this cd is where he breaks the world record. He dosn't do it in the studio version. Go take a look at it... one of their street team members put skorn together with a ludacris song... which i know sounds like it would sound aweful but it is totally the coolest thing in my mind! Let me know what you think about it... the ending kicks ass.

    General CommentI know this is a much darker interpretation than everyone else's, but i think its about his WIFE leaving him. The high pitch voice in the beginning is the letter she left him. You could go as far as to say he is reading it to her just before he kills her, hence him repeating goodbye. Its like Eminem's songs about him killing his ex-wife(alive), when in fact he is just singing his frustrations into a story/song.

    Every four lines the song changes rhythms and so does the time/place he is talking to them, and emotion. first stanza(4 lines) he is calm and talking to his wife who is alive but probably already tied down, holding the hand makes him remember or have a flashback, maybe because she doesn't have her ring on anymore.

    Stanza two is when all the anger hits him and he is furious, the first two lines about their wedding? The next two are just about her destroying him altogether.

    Third Stanza same as first

    He starts out in the first two lines of the forth stanza telling her what she did to him before he kills her. The next line about touching her ass and scratching the skin might be what he does while getting her up to the noose. and well you know what the next line is...the guitar solo could represent the actual act of killing her because everything else has been symbolic...

    The fifth stanza is of course the chores, the chores is suppose to be calm and ends with him changing moods just like the beat. he becomes sad.

    The last stanza he realizes that he has no more will to live and decides to kill himself. But there is a fifth line that suggests he second thinks his suicide and being filled with anger still, decides he more people need to pay.
