    General Commenti have a hunch that it's about scott's heroin addiction. it wouldn't be the first time he personified heroin as a woman. he did it in "barbarella" and stp's "atlanta," too.

    the second stanza (I've took it nearly to the brink/ And if you've seen me on the outside/ You would have barely seen me breathe) is a good description of an addict from an observer's pov.

    for the last stanza (And if I meet you out tonight/ Will you be loving me forever), "you" could be heroin. it fits well, especially when it gets "colder after the night" i.e. after his high ends. and i think "It's been a year and a night" is the time he's been sober, or at least claimed he was.

    in that case "You really don't believe me" might be the people in his life who doubt him when he says he's clean.

    General CommentIm feeling that this song is about how he loves this girl and she doesnt love him back... That he misses her when he cant see her "It's always cold after the night"

    General CommentThis is my fav track. I think it's about being close to someone and then losing them and "funny how i find myself inside a paper cup" where you end up. He's been waiting for her to come back. And after a while loses all hope. he's upset with himself because he couldn't show her the real him.

    General Comment...I love the morons that dont post the proper lyrics....here are the CORRECT lyrics:
    =============================

    fell through the ice
    She won't be coming back again
    It never wins to lie
    She said you'll never have no rights

    I've took it farther on the outside
    I've took it nearly to the brink
    And if you've seen me on the outside
    You would have barely seen me breathe

    Funny right here I find myself
    Inside a paper cup
    Without a warning or a reason it's a treason
    With no answer

    You got no right
    To keep me waiting here
    You got no right
    To keep the pain in here
    That holds the crown

    And if I fall apart on the outside
    (You really don't believe me)
    And if I take it to the brink
    And if I fall apart on the outside
    (You really don't believe me)
    You would have barely seen me breathe

    And if I meet you out tonight
    Will you be loving me forever
    It's always over after the night
    It's always colder after the night
    I broke through the ice
    She won't be coming back again
    It's been a year and a night

    ....azlyrics gives shitty lyrics. listen to the damn song.

    the papercut verse says to me that --- its funny that scott is in this small, tight spot with out him knowing, and that spot is his relationship with his wife.

    General Commentphoenix6475 damn your a dumb ass!!! you hate how people dont post proper lyrics and then you go and post incorrect lyrics...Dumbass

    P.S. There is no word "papercut" in the song maybe you ment paper cup! And a small tight spot? damn you take things literal dont you (whenever you hear the village people song Y.M.C.A. you probably think how fun it would be to hang out there) the paper cup line is a reference to drinking. When at a club or on the road sometimes shot glasses are not such a smart idea(ever get hit with one) so shots ( thats alcohol,numb-nutts) are served in dixxie cups!

    General CommentIt's definitely about Scott's supposed divorce. He's broken because of Mary leaving (or wanting to leave) him. And I agree with lack4life, "paper cup" refers to drinking. He's killing his sorrows by sipping on Stella Artois and Jack. Or some shit like that. Brilliant song. I prefer the Contraband album to Libertad, although Libertad is still of good quality. Slash is king!
