Scarred in the heart
Slashed in the vein
Nothing is changing
Nothing's the same
Lost in the head
Batteries dead
Crawling inside a stranger instead while you're

Waiting for somebody else (Waiting)
Somebody else (We're waiting)
Somebody else (For something / For someone / For something)
Whatever helps
While you're waiting for somebody else (Waiting)
Whatever helps (We're waiting)
Somebody else (For something / For someone / For something)
Cover the welts
Between here and tomorrow

A knife in the face
A hair out of place
All the excuses are only opinions
Feeling around
It's feeling the same
It's touching the dark
It's guessing a name while you're

Waiting for somebody else (Waiting)
Somebody else (We're waiting)
Somebody else (For something / For someone / For something)
Whatever helps
While you're waiting for somebody else (Waiting)
Whatever helps (We're waiting)
Somebody else (For something / For someone / For something)
Cover the welts

I am the weight around you (My scars are your scars)
I will be waiting to drown you (Your scars are my scars)
I will be here

Waiting for somebody else (Waiting)
Somebody else (We're waiting)
Waiting for somebody else (For something / For someone)
Whatever helps (For something else)

We're just waiting for somebody

    General CommentI think it's just basically about being an unhealthy relationship and they're just 'waiting' for someone/something else. Until they completely move on from eachother, they'll have these 'scars' and bad memories of eachother. It'll be a constant struggle.

    I could be completely wrong.

    General CommentSounds to me like the character is saying that if people want to hurt themselves, they can do what they want, he doesn't care because it's not him. He's saying if hurting yourself is what hurts, so be it. Everyone is just waiting for someone to actually kill themselves, hence "Waiting for somebodyelse". My opinion anyway.

    General Commenti think it's about one night stands, and the things you do with someone who might not be 'it' but you know you're just waiting for something better to come along. it's hopeful in the pessimistic way, if that makes sense. he knows that there is a chance there suffering and scars will be worth it in the end when he finds the right person.

    General CommentI see this as this:

    Someone was obviously suffering from some emotional scarring. And, instead of taking time out and allowing it to heal, they went out and allowed themselves to be scarred more.

    An example is like if a couple broke up on really horrible terms. The girl starts sleeping around, and becoming more and more numb. Inside, she's wishing that someone would rescue her from the hell that she's entered in. She's "waiting for somebody else."

    That's just how I see it. That's the feeling I get from the atmosphere of that song.

    General CommentI know this song is about every person as an individual waitting for their concious to finally come out. The individual has come to reality but piecing it all to gether is the hard part. This song is all about one person. SELF!

    General Comment"Scars"


    Scarred in the heart, slashed in the vein,
    Nothing is changing, nothing's the same.
    Lost in the head, battery is dead,
    Crawling inside, exchanging sad
    While you're waiting for somebody else, (waiting)
    Somebody else (we're waiting)
    Somebody else (for something)
    'Cause whatever helps (for someone, for something)
    While you're waiting for somebody else (waiting)
    Whatever helps, (we're waiting)
    Somebody else (for something)
    Discover the welts (for someone, for something)
    Between here and tomorrow.

    A knife in the face, a hair out of place,
    All the excuses are only opinons.
    Feeling around it's feelling the same,
    It's touching the dark, it's guessing your name
    While you're waiting for somebody else, (waiting)
    Somebody else (we're waiting)
    Somebody else (for something)
    'Cause whatever helps (for someone, for something)
    While you're waiting for somebody else (waiting)
    Whatever helps (we're waiting)
    Somebody else (for something)
    Discover the welts (for someone, for something else.)

    I am the weight around you
    I am the weight around you
    I will be here to drown you
    I will be here... oh!

    I am the weight around you (my scars)
    I am the weight around you (are your scars,)
    I will be here to drown you (your scars)
    I will be here... (are my scars)
    Waiting for somebody else (waiting)
    Somebody else (we're waiting)
    Waiting for somebody else (for something)
    Whatever helps (for someone, for something)
    When you're waiting for somebody else (waiting)
    Somebody else (we're waiting)
    Waiting for somebody else (for something)
    Whatever helps (for someone, for something)
    While you're waiting for somebody.....
    (Waiting, we're waiting for something,
    For someone, for something else,
    Waiting, we're waiting for something,
    For someone, for something else)
    .....Else, (we're waiting)
    Waiting for somebody else, (we're waiting)
    Waiting for somebody else, (we're waiting)
    We are just waiting for somebody else, (we're waiting)
    Waiting for somebody.
