In this hole, that is me, the dead are rolling over
In this hole, thickening, dirt shovelled over shoulders
I feel it in me, so overwhelmed, oh this pressure center rising
My life overturned, unfair the despair, all these scars keep ripping open.

Peel me from the skin, tear me from the rind, does it make you happy now?
Tear meat from the bone, tear me from myself, are you feeling happy now?

In this hole, that is me, a life that's growing feeble,
In this hole, so limiting, the sun has set all darkens.
Buried underneath, hands slip off the wheel,
Internal pathway to contention.

Peel me from the skin, tear me from the rind, does it make you happy now?
Tear meat from the bone, tear me from myself, are you feeling happy now?

In this hole, that is me, left with a heart exhausted,
What's my release? What sets me free? Do you pull me up just to push me down again?

Peel me from the skin, tear me from the rind, does it make you happy now?
Tear meat from the bone, tear me from myself, are you feeling happy now?

Does it make you happy?
Are you feeling happy?
Are you fucking happy now that I'm lost, left with nothing?
Does it make you happy?
Are you feeling happy?
Are you fucking happy now that I'm lost, left with nothing?

    General CommentI don't know what it is about this song. I think it's great. It seems to be just about people cutting you down and asking them if they are happy with what they have done. I may be wrong though... I cannot wait until their new album comes out. This song is amazing in concert! Guerilla Tour 05 owns!

    General CommentI think it means that he thinks that everybody would be happy to see him torn apart emotionally because of all the shit they do to him. And he hes getting tired of all of it.

    General CommentThis song's not about drugs at all.. infact in an interview with Mudvayne about the new album and the "reinventing" of the band, they clearly state that they have turned over a new leaf.. "No Facepaint, no gimmicks, and no drugs"... instead concentrating on their music and giving their all to their fans.

    This songs pretty simple.. its about someone being vindictive. About them pushing and pulling someone around until breaking point, and then rhetorically asking "are you happy with what you have done"..

    It seems to be a very angry song, no doubt written out of hatred from a destroyed relationship.

    Either way this song fucking rips, as do Mudvayne,

    General CommentIn my opinion I think this song is about heartbreak, head over heals for someone... she has betrayed him harsh in someway. Broke up, "he feels dead inside aka buried" in this hole. that is me.." theres nothing else to live for. Overwhelmed with raw emotion.

    "All these scars keep ripping open" - aka memories keep arising

    "Peel me, from the skin, Tear me, from the rind, Does it make you happy now?
    Tear me, from the bone, Tear me, from myself, Are you feeling happy now?"

    He has opened heart up to this girl, making him vunrable...opened his life for her an shared his deepest secrets.. She ended up trampling all over him and being disrespectful… right after he opened up his heart to her. Heart exhausted.

    Now that hes at a low point in his life, the girl is getting pleasure seeing his pain... "Are you happy now?"

    I hope that made sense.

    General CommentIf these lyrics were actually correct. People could get a better understanding of what this songs about.

    "Was that real hate? what tense be free
    Do you pull me out just to push me out again"

    ..Is completely incorrect, it's:

    "What's my release? What sets me free?
    Do you pull me up just to push me down again."

    There are other lines that are wrong but i wont waste time on them.

    To me this song is about someone writing about a person or individual that's constantly torturing or playing headgames with that said person, either in a friendship, family member or relationship, etc. The said person is constantly leaving the author emotionally drained from their actions.

    "In this hole, that is me" probably refers to the emotion being constantly ripped out by the individual.

    My InterpretationPersonally, I feel this song is about people in your past having stepped all over you your entire life and having completely dehumanized you by the time they're gone from your life, and in the end, the scars remain and you're asking those people if they're happy that they've gone and destroyed who you are, if they're happy that they're ruined your life. Kind of a song about defeat, I guess. It always touches me, every time I hear it. The song's key definitely fits the mood, as well (F minor).

    General CommentCool ideas on the song meanings. I really dont know what it means, I just cant wait for the cd to come out on April 12. I say we tell all are friends and post it on forums for people to buy it. Dont dowload, go buy it. Lets get them at the top of the charts. So you have a month to save up the money and on April 12 go and buy Lost and Found by Mudvayne. Mudvayne kicks ass lets give them something back!

    General CommentIn this hole, that is me
    The dead are rolling over
    In this hole, thickening
    Dirt shovelled over shoulders

    I feel into me, so overwhelmed
    All this pressures sent arising
    My life overturned, ? despair
    All these scars keep ripping open

    Peel me, from the skin
    Tear me, from the rind
    Does it make you happy now?

    -while she is getting to know him he is kept inside and she gains his trust and he lets her in.

    Tear me, from the bone
    Tear me, from myself
    Are you feeling happy now?

    In this hole, that is me
    A life that's growing feeble
    In this hole, so limiting
    The sun thats settle darkens

    Buried underneath, hands slip off the wheel
    Internal path until contention

    -now she is in control. She tries to change him, using his love for her.

    The rest of the song is the aftermath. She leaves him. She gave him a reason to leave the darkness of his life only to give him a reason to shut all of the doors again.


    Happy?
