Wake up all alone
Sending postcards back to home...
On the road

If the medication works
Could I be the way I was?
In control

You painted a picture
I'm the worst type of sinner...
You know

You painted a picture
Happier than I can afford

Nobody can save me
Nobody can save me
Nobody can say what I'll do if I'm alone

Sign off
Sign off
Sign off
Sign off
Sign off (Nobody can save me)
Sign off
Sign off (Nobody can save me)
Sign off

    General CommentI think this song is just about having no control of your life. It just kind of goes where it wants, until eventually you have to let go. You can get to a point so low that it seems impossible to climb out and get back in control.

    General Commentthis song is really disturbing. the thing that gets me most about sugarcult is that tims voice changes when hes singing about something that hits a little too close to home. its kind of like when you can tell that someone smiles when they sing a certain word on a record because of the way they pronounce it and its etched in time just cause of something that was probably going on behind the scenes in the studio at that moment. this song is sung really sincerely, and its sad because either tim is really going through this dark stuff or hes a damn good actor. Suicidal thoughts, plain and simple. The take-action tour, the drug references... these band guys are hot but they are still just fucked up kids.

    General CommentThis song was written in almost one pass with a tape recorder running in my room. I wrote it from the edge of my bed with the same Harmony acoustic guitar used in the "Bouncing Off the Walls" video. The song is pretty self-explanatory and was written while we were recording the basic tracks for the record. I recorded it in the back room of the studio by myself. Some of the over-dubs and bizarre noises were added on by our producer Gavin MacKillop.

    (From sugarcult.com)

    Definitely the most personal song on the album... I love the sound effects that Gavin has added to the beginning and end.

    General Commenti'm surprised there aren't that many comments on this song.
    i think it's one of the most personal things that sugarcult have written.
    in my opinion it is pretty clear that it is about depression.
    "if the medication works, could i be the way i was? in control" prozac maybe? it hits me as being the kind of thing someone would ask a doctor before being prescribed anti depressants.
    and the lines "nobody can save me, nobody can say what i'll do if i'm alone" well i'm probably taking this too far but it seems to me as something along the lines of self harm or suicide.

    General CommentI'm a little worried that most of the songs I relate too are about suicide...
    Anyway, I love this song A LOT and and it always gives me goosebumps, it just feels so emotional and heartfelt.

    General CommentIt's about someone having anguish about stop chatting and signing of MSN, especially since he and whoever he was chatting with made some really neat pics with the drawing function. But finally after taking a while to gain the courage he manages to.
