"Crying" as written by Vincent Love and Hal Davis....
Picking up the pieces of a life you've broken
Stitching it together with the seams wide open

You keep crying, crying, crying
Till you cannot see at all
You keep crying, crying, crying
Till you cannot breathe at all
What do you do when you're alone?
What do you do when no one's home?
What do you do when you're alone?
Out of control, now on your own

Never waking up
The alarm is broken
Running in a dream and it's like slow motion

You keep crying, crying, crying
Till you cannot see at all
You keep crying, crying, crying
Till you cannot breathe at all
What do you do when you're alone?
What do you do when no one's home?
What do you do when you're alone?
Out of control, now on your own

Alone

Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone now?
All I need are the details
Just to find a way out

You keep crying, crying, crying
Till you cannot see at all
You keep crying, crying, crying
Till you cannot breathe at all
What do you do when you're alone?
What do you do when no one's home?
What do you do when you're alone?
Out of control, now on your own

You can't break away what you cannot change
You can't break away
You can't break away what you cannot change
You can't break away

    General CommentCrying was one of those songs that was written over a period of time (six months). I had the riff of the pre-chorus and chorus long before the melody for the verse. This song is a bit of a stretch for me, mainly because it's really hard to sing and play at the same time (see example 13A in your textbooks regarding patting your head and rubbing your stromach). The verse stumped me so much that I finally took to dividing it up with a scream in the middle of the section. Marko adds some very interesting guitar playing in the pre-chorus using only harmonics as notes. The middle section of the song used to be sparse with only a choppy version of the chord progression filling in the space. Three days before the song was mixed I recorded a guitar solo as an experiment on my Gibson SG with Gavin. I hated it; but Gavin used it in the mix. The bridge of this song reminds me a little bit of U2; because everytime I hear a drummer keeping time on the floor tom I think of any number of songs from the U2 album "War". The outro lyric of the song ("you can't break away what you cannot change") was discovered during the recording of the harmonies. I felt at the time that there was too much blank space at the end of the song and it wasn't lyrically complete. Tim Cullen from the band Summercamp guest appeared on this track singing all the harmonies. Thank you Tim, those notes are really high!! This song is gonna be hard to sing live.

    General CommentYea this song is definitely about their singer's ex-girlfriend. I just got back from seeing them, New Found Glory, and Green Day and before they played this song their singer goes "I wrote this song about my ex-girlfriend who complained WAAAAAY too much." So yea just thought I'd put that in here.

    General CommentI really don't think this song is about suicide. Maybe about someone who won't stop whining??
    Anyway, this song is so damn addicting. I just can't get enough of it, I am actually afraid I'll get sick of it soon. Only song I've heard from SugarCult, but I know I'm going to look in on them.

    General Commentduring the bridge, am I the only one who hears "is there anyone out there, is there anyone now? all I need are the details, AND A MAP OF YOUR MOUTH"? I have thought this from the day I heard it, and I still can't figure out what he's saying at the end of that part. yeah. weird.
