"Already Dead" as written by Shane Told, Neil Boshart, Joshua Bradford, William Hamilton and Paul Koehler....
you won't find me here
the place that you expected me to be
in my bed on the 2nd floor
I'm outside your house
I'm closing in on you
and all the times you smiled
you said hello and thought i was ok
i was planning your final struggle

[chorus]
but when you wake up ill be there
when you see me you'll be on your back again
when you, when you, when you, when you
know your already dead
you'll love me too

you will find me here
the place you least expected me to be
breaking through your basement window
I'm outside your house
i can hear you breathe
and all the times you laughed
you shook my hand and thought i was your friend
i was planning your tragic ending

[chorus]

you look down on me, with eyes of endless tragedy
try and stop the pain
but there's never closure
find your soul and see what you could have

BREAK!
with your love for me
your addictions buried deep
from your find a way into the darkness

[chorus]

    General Commenti'm not exactly sure what i think of this song (which i love with my entire heart) but i do get the feeling that somebody gets hurt.

    first off, it talkes about:
    "and all the times you smiled
    you said hello and thought i was ok
    i was planning my final struggle"
    which makes me think that the two people could have once been in a relationship that has been long dead, and the girl thinks everything is okay and theyre friends and junk. but at the same time the guy is still mad over it and is "planning my final struggle". murder maybe? or rape.

    the next part that caught my attention was:
    "when you wake up ill be there
    when you see me you'll be on your back
    when you know your already dead.
    you left me too."
    ok, so he's gonna sneek up on her in the middle of the night. kinda stalker-ish if you ask me. but what i think happens is either rape or consentual sex, becuase of the "when you see me you'll be on your back" and sometimes 'on your back' is a term for sex. i also get from this that the girl probably ended the relationship from the "you left me too" line.

    ok, next: "breaking through your basement window" ok, so he's deffenatly broken into her house.
    "and all the times you left" reassures my theory she left him (maybe multiple times)

    and now we coem to:
    "you shook my hand and thought i was your friend
    i was planning a ending"
    once again, she thought everything was just fine but he didnt think so. it could be (from the second line) that he was still mad enough, maybe to even kill HER.

    and the last thing that sticks out to me is:
    "try and stop the pain
    but theres never closure
    by your soul i sing
    like you could help"
    i don't know about you, but after somebody breaks up with me, its kinda a bad feeling. sometimes you feel hurt (ie: pain). and sometimes, no matter what you do, you still love that person (ie: never closure). but in the next part, it says "by your soul i sing", by your SOUL not by you. i think she's dead.


    so to tie everything up, this is what i got:

    there's a couple in a relationship where the girl breaks it off. and all this time she's thinking that they still have a frienship and that everything is ok when they guy is actually really torn up about it. so he plans to do something. (it could be one of thoies "if i cant have no nobody can" things). so he breaks into her house, rapes/has sexwith her, then kills her, only to find he doesn't feel any better from where he started from.

    the end.

    i could be really wrong, but, thats what i think.

    General Commentand thoes lyrics on wrong for the new discovering the waterfron cd. its:

    "you wont find me here
    the place that you expected me to be
    in my bed on the 2nd floor
    i'm inside your house
    i'm closing in on you
    and all the times you smiled
    you said hello and thought i was ok
    i was planning your final struggle

    but when you wake up ill be there
    when you see me you'll be on your back again
    when you, when you, when you, when you
    know your already dead
    you'll love me too

    you will find me here
    the place you least expected me to be
    breaking through your basement window
    i'm outside your room
    i can hear you breathe
    and all the times you laughed
    you shook my hand and thought i was your friend
    i was planning your tragic ending

    but when you wake up ill be there
    when you see me you'll be on your back again
    when you, when you, when you, when you
    know your already dead
    you'll love me too

    you'll look down on me, with eyes of endless tragedy
    try and stop the pain, but there's never closure
    find your solace in what you could have been

    when they look for me, the evidence is buried deep
    try to guide the way into the darkness

    but when you wake up ill be there
    when you see me you'll be on your back again
    when you, when you, when you, when you
    know your already dead
    you'll love me too
    looking down on me through eyes that never stop crying
    looking down on me, will you ever look away?"

    General CommentLets look at this from a different perspective...forget the women...Alright lets say you met someone who was kinda iffy if you know what i mean. You talk to him and you make friends with him. You slowly find more and more about him. Then you know too much. You think he is your friend and he wont do anything to you. You call him over to your house and just hang out. That night your ready to go to sleep and next thing you know your already dead...mabye as a friend you left him hanging and just abondoned him with the knowledge of his past present and future doings.

    General CommentIt's definitely about a girl he was in a relationship before, hence the lines "on your back again" the word "Again" implying that he has seen her there before, probably during sex, and then "you'll love me too" they broke up, she thought it was all cool and they were friends, but he is so broken about the whole thing, that he feels like it's worth killing her. I'm thinking he said that he loves her and she said it's not working out, again, back to "you'll love me too".
    And then since the title is "Already Dead" and then there's the phrases "final struggle" and "tragic ending", he definitely kills her (maybe not in real life, but in the song)
    "Try to stop the pain, but there's never closure" I think means that she is finally feeling the way that he does, he hurts very badly that she just kinda left him, and he wants to make her feel that same way. He never felt closure in the relationship, and he wants her not to feel any closure in the situation.
    But, at the end "looking down on me, will you ever look away", he's either feeling guilty that she's looking down on him from heaven, or he can't bring himself to kill her because she has this sad lil look on her face and he just can't do it.
    Those are my thoughts.

    General CommentThis song was written after Shane read Alice Seabolds novel "The Lovely Bones". That novel is about a girl who is murdered at the age of 14 and watches her family cope with her death from her own version of heaven. It seems like he is the one doing the killing and imagining what his victim(the role of the little girl) will do once he/she is dead. Oh and I dont think its about a relationship at all. It seems like theres no reason for the killing. Maybe they were just aquaintances and he's just a sick fuck?

    General CommentI think that he is talkin about killing this girl for leaveing him cause she hurt him so much. I think that the whole part that said when your on your back again isn't about rape just that he killed her and her goust or w/e looked at him. I might be wrong though
