"Magnolia" as written by Matthew Robert Bruso, Brendan Alexander Macdonald and Mark Edward Castillo....
Abuse your body and call it love.
I hear the stories; the bruises speak for themselves.
You think we're blind because we are young.
I'm old enough to know now my age made me dumb.
I should have yelled and forced someone to hear those things we thought were better left unsaid. Is now too late? IT dominates my head. Those things we thought were better left unsaid. I could not choose a way. A choice that wasn't mine to make. Just make him go away. But if you're happy then i'm glad you found him. God, please help her find her way. A choice that wasn't mine to make. Just make him go away. Will she be happy when she finally finds herself? Does she know she has our help? Why do i even bother? We left those things unsaid. It hurts to talk but i'm starting to wish i did. We left those things unsaid. They hurt to hear. Why do i bother? Some things are better left off unsaid.

    General CommentGreat guitar riffs... seriously

    I think it's about some family member or close friend in an abusive relationship and the struggle to find a way to help that person break free from it.

    General CommentThis song is beyond amazing.
    By far my favorite.
    I think it's about what kaptkrunch said.
    Thought at first I thought it was about lying? Lol. I don't know. But what he/she says make a great deal of sense.

    General CommentHrm... anyone seemed to notice the titles for all of the "Cover Your Tracks" albums are the names of movies staring Tom Cruise? Don't know if all of the songs are based on the movies because I haven't seen them all, but I'm sure there's some secret meaning behind it, ha ha.

    General CommentBest song ever by BYD in my opinion.
    This is what the lyrics mean to me...
    The guy has an abusive stepfather who abuses his mother, but the person is too young and scared to tell anyone about it, and his mother denies it cuz she is in love with the bastard. So the son keeps it to himself. Years later he starts thinking he should have told someone but its too late.

    General Commentgood song.
    it's about how when he was a kid his mom was a prostitute, and she thought he wouldn't find out, but he does, and he is very upset. the video explains it all.
