Despite these imperfections
despite all I say
Inside in recollections
I’m done with yesterday

I will lose my mind
make it real this time
To leave it all behind
I won’t cry wolf
Show me a sign
planets will align
I’m gonna blow my mind
I won’t cry wolf

The one I trusted sold me
this is overblown
But I didn’t want to believe
Everyone I trusted deceived me

I will lose my mind
make it real this time
To leave it all behind
I won’t cry wolf
Show me a sign
planets will align
I’m gonna blow my mind
I won’t cry wolf

I figured out
I’m holding onto time
And I can’t let go
I’m hiding, I’m needy, on the inside I’m bleeding
I’m searching for something but
Can’t seem to find me
On the surface is someone who pretends to focus
I’m waiting and wanting to cut this and go on
Trying to live when the pain can all be gone
We’ve only seen the future
The voice in my head leading me here back home

I will lose my mind
And make it real this time
To leave it all behind
I won’t cry wolf
Show me a sign
Planets will align,
I’m gonna blow my mind
I won’t cry wolf

Show me a sign
Planets will align,
I’m gonna blow my mind
I won’t cry wolf

    General CommentThis song is about being betrayed and getting revenge. The new album is very different from the old ones, what with the lead singer change and all, but it's still a good Cd, this is definitely one of the best songs off of it.

    General Commentfinalpoet very excellent description in two words. I feel you there with the betrayal and revenge.

    Here's my view as well:

    Seems like a lot of us are caught up in the same place. The world (society) is more about tricking you into thinking you're in a euphorian society more so then you really are. Each day you wake up to billboard's of captivating beauties and watching TV of beautiful people that you can feel a place with.

    But the reality is, until we break out in our own individual lives, we are slaves to someone. Many of us have awaken only to find ourselves stuck in that corporate place or whatever it may be that seems to be an imprisonment.

    On our own individual journies we will find many answers, and the way out.

    "The one I trusted sold me
    this is overblown
    But I didn’t want to believe
    Everyone I trusted deceived me"

    Our attempt to be a part of society and we trust others only for reasoning of wanting to fit in. We want to be a part of something because we truly love others. That is something we cannot help.

    But now we allow ourselves to be controlled. We thought we did so well to whomever controls us, whether it be a co-worker, lover, manager, boss, whatever. Some authority figure usually.

    But that person is only a megalomaniac. They want the power and spotlight to themselves. They only service themselves.

    "I will lose my mind
    make it real this time
    To leave it all behind
    I won’t cry wolf
    Show me a sign
    planets will align
    I’m gonna blow my mind
    I won’t cry wolf"

    From a literal, surface perspective it looks like this person is going crazy. But in reality the transgression to a higher state involves you giving up your mind. All that logic, rationalization, and thinking needs to be taken out of you. It is what grounds you here, and sometimes it is too heavy. We need to break free and listen too our hearts. Let the mind do its thing, and you'll let nothing in.

    "I won't cry wolf"

    This is significant to me on a personal level. Because I, myself have been trapped in a job I don't like. And for the longest time I felt I couldn't break out. That if I quit I couldn't support myself. Now I'm letting faith fill in the holes and insecurities.

    So, when you're ready to make the stand, don't talk-the-talk, but know that you'll walk-the-walk jsut as well. Know that you are truly loved by higher forces out there if you stay close to your heart and do the right thing.

    And when it seems like you're going to risk it all... just know you are in soft hands.

    This song has been very personal to me.

    General CommentWell, betrayed definitely, I have a way deeper look at this song, but I'm really too lazy to go into it and I really don't know how to say a lot of it, I may have overanalyzed and said revenge although looking at it I forgot why I said that.

    General Commenttwo words: LOVE IT

    especially the accoustics gives it an outerspace kind atmosphere I think (only way i can describe it).

    But yea if I know anything it's definitely understanding where the betrayal in this song is coming from been down that road one time too many.

    And you're right about the whole "trapped" feeling chino. People like to talk, talk about plans and dreams ect. and so forth. Such as talking about working in some fast food joint saving up some money to go back to school when in reality it often seems too daunting a task with one too many risks. So you constantly hear people "cry wolf" saying that their going to change but they never do. So when you break down the phrase "cry wolf" it means your just talking shit and that nothings gonna happen. Thus in this song they negate the phrase turning it into "I WON'T cry wolf" meanings that this time it won't be just more hot air and BS spilling from my mouth but rather things are gonna change even if you have to do it yourself.

    Anyway yea stumbled across this song when checking out Adema music videos and saw it was the theme for the movie "Cry Wolf" and thought wow how original. Anyway I thought the video was cool and the music kicked ass so I delved deeper into the lyrics and this song is now my new fav. song :)

    General CommentMark Chavez was kicked out of Adema for being a crack-addicted alcoholic. the band isnt better or worse.
    The somber mood of this song almost makes me think thats its about suicide. He says

    "I will lose my mind
    make it real this time
    To leave it all behind
    I won’t cry wolf
    Show me a sign
    planets will align
    I’m gonna blow my mind
    I won’t cry wolf"

    To me he is Saying that he will kill himself, and he isnt just saying it this time. He really wants to do it, but cant find the strength (in his Mind) to pull the trigger. he always ends up coming back home.
    this is just what i think, listen to it again, see if you find what im saying.

    CORRECTION TO LYRICS:



    "I figured out
    I’m holding onto TIGHT
    And I can’t let go
    I’m hiding, I’m needy, on the inside I’m bleeding
    I’m searching for something but
    Can’t seem to find me"

    General CommentI think it might have something to do with some sort of oppertunity that has been presented to you but that has burned you in the past (a girl, job, or something else that requires you investing a lot of your money/trust/heart/etc). You think this one might be the one, but you are afraid of putting yourself on the line because you have been burned in the past when you have put yourself out on the line. this "oppertunity" is something that you really badly want and need, and you're looking for a sign that this time it is the one you've been waiting for.

    ambiguous I know, but I don't think the song is moping about the past as much as reflecting on it and looking towards the future and what to do now.

    General CommentI totally agree with AlternativeControl here, its like he's trying to find courage to kill himself...

    I�m gonna blow my mind
    I won�t cry wolf


    he's trying to leave it all but is stuck... and crying wolf portrays his will do it for real this time around.

    I will lose my mind
    And make it real this time
    To leave it all behind
    I won�t cry wolf

    General CommentSong is not about suicide.. this song became personal to me during a rough time in life and i must say (subjectively) i feel it's about a relationship. the first verse is well enough, he was "let go" and keeps trying to refuse to look back. You say you're gunna go a million times in a relationship, verbally, personally, but i think this is to himself. Love is a thing that cannot be easily let go, so he's gunna have to blow his own mind, doing something he feels is impossible, but he's determined and will not cry wolf - won't look back or try again for that situation. The one i trusted sold me - right there, i'd say that he was hurt. Let go, lost, betrayed, deemed unworthy, in an illusion if you will. and the bridge -
    "I figured out
    I�m holding onto time
    And I can�t let go
    I�m hiding, I�m needy, on the inside I�m bleeding
    I�m searching for something but
    Can�t seem to find me
    On the surface is someone who pretends to focus
    I�m waiting and wanting to cut this and go on
    Trying to live when the pain can all be gone
    Then fall into confusion (correction)*
    The voice in my head leading me here back home"

    He's holding on to the past, "what was".. "what has been".. "What isn't any longer".. Inside he's hurting and trying to find closure and enough reason to let go and go on. He's looking for so much that he somehow loses himself, he's destroying himself. He is waiting for something to happen, another girl, the strength, etc., he wants to move on. But the voice in his head, her, is deceiving him and calling him back every time he tries to let go.

    My take, Wonderful song.

    My Interpretationit means that he lived something ha nobody else can believe, and he's trying to say that he's not lying, so he tries to do it again. But he can't do it again, even though he tries. And even though he wants to let go and go on, he just can't do it.
