"Hello Again" as written by and Michael Richard/watkins Lewis....
Hello again, why so old?
Wasn't time your friend, I must be told
Hello again, it seems so long
Since we last met, how has it gone?

Don't accept the blame
I would, I would not complain
Cause I'm sure it wasn't your own fault
That you never made it out your vault
Just lock the door, and find some time to scream
To scream again

Just say when, and you'll stop the pain
Of your life, bring it to an end
Just say when, and you could make amends
Just say hello, say hello again

Hello again, it's not that hard
No dead ends, even with the scars

Don't accept the blame
I would, I would not complain
Cause I'm sure it wasn't your own fault
That you never made it out your vault
Just lock the door, and find some time to scream

Just say when, and you'll stop the pain
Of your life, bring it to an end
Just say when, and you could make amends
Just say hello, say hello again

You have no home, you lost your throne, where has it gone?
Well it could all come back
But you're being led by the walking dead
You stumble and you cracked the ground
You're pinned down

Just say, when
You could stop the pain
Just say when and you could make amends
Just say hello
Say hello, again

Hello again, hello again, hello again, hello again
It's not the end if you just say hello again

    General CommentI don't think it's about suicide. I think it's about someone who locks themself up in their room and lives a boring shitty life, but all they have to do is go out and get friends and their life would be so much better. Getting new friends would be "hello again" and walking out of their shell would be "just say when and you could stop the pain"

    General CommentMaybe its about someone screwing up big time ('don't accept the blame') and then hiding away for ages. Lost Prophs are therefore saying that you should get over your mistakes (say 'Hello Again') as opposed to frightening yourself into doing nothing ('you never made it out your vault'). I reckon it ties into the whole album idea of getting of your ass and enjoying life!

    General CommentI think it is about getting over old wounds caused by any number of emotional things. usually time is used to heal things... "Wasn't time your friend" and the person locks their "scars" up and doesnt try to make amends, and all it takes to fix broken relationships and hardships is to say "Hello Again"

    Love this song by the way...

    General CommentYeah, this definetly IS about those, who eventually give up... Gettin' over big mistakes is an important part of life, one of the way to get over yourself

    General Commentbeautiful song.this could be to say that if you have a big problem dont bottle it all up, ask someone to help you. *could be the title?* like:
    Just say when and you stop the pain of your life
    Bring it to an end
    Just say when and you could make amends
    Just say hello, say hello... again
    this could be that you need someone there for you when thing get hard because your going to hurt yourself more if you stay on your own. heh i could be wrong but thats what it means to be, i definatly think its about someone with an emotional problem though

    General CommentXxseennotheardxX has an interesting view, and from that view it could be about any kind of addiction that serves to temporarily take away the pain of life

    however the first thing i thought was that its about someone contemplating suicide, and the writer of the song is saying they could go ahead and it would remove the pain of life, however if they wanted, they could also do whatever the phrase "say hello again" is talking about, and that would be a better way to deal with things

    General CommentSomeone that wants to be free?
    They want to be free but not as in getting out more, more like free from the world, away from lifes problems and suicide is the only way for them yet it shows that they don't have to commit suicide to escape and that they must realise any problems caused weren't to do with them.

    General CommentMy ex dedicated this song to me, so thats why I think this:
    I think its about someone who's still in love with their ex, but they dont fully relalize it, even though they just sit around and want to (and do) talk to them alll the time. And the ex is just saying, they could fix things and be happy again, if they just say "Hello Again" (like get back together with them)
