"The Color Of Money" as written by Matthew Robert Bruso, Brendan Alexander Macdonald and Mark Edward Castillo....
I see you're weak. Did you see that we were strong? We all make mistakes in life. You make your choice, at the same time you made mine. You found a man that you'd give for, and what you gave would mean my everything. You'd come around in the long run. I can see now how we all lost hope cause we would spend everyday thinking about you. We'd grow strong without you. We had each other. That's all we needed. Life wasn't easy but it could be beat. A constant battle, mine for the taking, with them beside me, and that's all i'd need.
The years without you were far from easy. We'd have our visits but only in my dreams. I might sleep smiling through i was cold. We had a fire that's not what makes a home. Forget the past. Let's forget the struggle. We have you back and that's all i need to know. You need us now and we all forgive you. I see you're weak. Did you see we're strong? Are you proud that we all turned out so strong? Forget the past. We have you back. You need us now and we all forgive you. I see you're weak. Did you see we're strong? Are you proud that we turned out so strong?

    General CommentIt's so obvious.
    It's about his mom.
    The lyrics in this song involve a choice that was made by the vocalist, Matt’s mother. This was a choice that was made without his approval and was made at a time in his life when he was very vulnerable. His Mothers choice has had a major influence on his life. She made the decision to leave Matt and his younger sister at a reasonably early age. She left with their stepfather. Years later, Matt still can’t get over this tragedy in his life. The bands lyrics are riddled with words about his childhood and Mother.

    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 CommentAll the songs are named after Tom Cruise movies because they are fans of Tom Cruise and want to be just as cool as him (at least thats what they told once in an interview)
    Awesome song anyways, love the lyrics.

    General Commentthe song is about him growing up and his mom being a prostitute and the struggles he faced when she would leave and how he grew up in a broken home and how she came back weak but he grew up strong so he was willing to forget the past and forget his struggles to help his mom when she needed him

    General CommentLoL, bshrape123 you figured that out from a video to Magnolia but I doubt it's correct..

    I think it's about him growing up and living without his father and the whole song is him talking to his father.

    General CommentI think it's about a friend that he was really close to leaving them all for a boyfriend/girlfriend or something.
    Maybe abusive?
    There'res a lot of senerios.
    But I think that it's along those lines.

    General CommentI don't think this song is about relationships at all.

    I think it's about a friend who took the whole crew or group of friends for granted.

    The betrayer thought they [the group] were weak, and BuryYourDead was like "fuck you we're strong, even though you were a good friend we don't need you."

    Overall I think this song is about a betrayer and saying fuckyou to them.
