"Some Trust" as written by Daniel P. Battenhouse, Joseph King and Isaac Slade....
So you fake you're full and you feel tomorrow
Coming and you gotta do what you can do to get
Away with everything you want and still get what you need.
So you're slowing down cause you've done it before,
You look at the floor and you wonder when it's gonna
Come on up over your head so you can get some rest.
Some trust in love and some trust in hatred
Some trust in fear and some in violence
Some trust in faith and some trust in fortune
Some trust God and some just get away.

Swear to God I'm going to get it right Stay down tied until I get my fill.
So I take it all but it's falling through Done it before so maybe a little bit
More will make it easier to get on through the door.
Some trust in pain and some trust in pleasure
Some trust in union, some in innocence
Some trust in fear and some trust in fortune
Some trust in everyone and some just get away.

Call it security, Call it your purity, Call it the words we pray,
Call it the sins we say, You never wanted this
Some trust in God and some trust in country
Some trust in love and some in violence
Some trust in diamonds, some trust in devils
Some trust fear and some just get away

    General CommentI love this song, I'm a little surprised there's only one comment. But I guess it's an older The Fray song. So if you haven't heard it yet, I advise any fans to do so.

    I interpret the song as this:
    In the song, he describes a door which is extremely difficult to pass through. You're burdened with all these things that you 'need'. I think what we think we need is something to trust in. Some don't trust in anything and are able to get through the door. I don't think I understand the full picture of the song though. Is not being able to get through the door a good thing or bad thing?
    I'd love to hear any other interpretations from others who've listened to the song.

    General CommentI had to listen to this song a few times(and I love it) to get a general idea of what I think it means. I think it's about an average person, going through everything they do in the same way, and always dreaming about having something just a little bit better. They put their trust in God, in their love for another, in marriage, in diamonds(material wealth) that it will lead them to a better life than the one they're living. As for the ones who just get away, I think that has a bad connotation. I don't think you can trust in nothing, because even if you trust in yourself you still have trust in something...maybe those who just "get away" are the ones who just give up on life, and commit suicide, or resort to anything in which they're living their life in a slow hell.

    General CommentIt's on their one of their original EP's, Morningstar xx. It's the 'Reason EP', the second of two they released independently before Epic signed them. They have since reissued 'Reason', just go onto iTunes and click "Reason EP". These songs are a little edgier than How to Save a Life, but honestly, I like most of these tracks better than some from the full length.
    There's a lot of meaning in this song. I think it's about learning how to trust someone, but then that's just me.

    General Commenti see this song in 2 ways. i agree with above posters who think that this song discribes the average individual trying to find whatever it takes to make them happy...trusting in all these things but never finding it. and the some just get away meaning some ppl either give up or never bother with going thru all that crap.

    the other way i see this song is: each thing discribes a different person or type of person. that for each person it takes something different or particular to make him or her happy. so some ppl need violence, some need fear, some need love, some need god etc. and the some just get away line refers to ppl dont need/ bother with any of these things and are happy anyway. i take that line to mean that those ppl are somehow luckier than the rest.

    i could be wrong but that's my perception.

    General CommentOkay so I can see the point that "So you fake your full" means that that person is anerexic... but I think that when he says, "You fake your full" It means that you fake happiness, and that the person is doing everything they can to get through day by day- but nothings making them happy. So then he starts to describe all the things that that persons done to become happy,

    and I love how it goes from one extreme to the next.

    "Some trust in love, some trust in hatred etc"

    Then I guess he found drugs to make him happy and he keeps telling himself only a little more to get on through the door which is usually what drug addicts say and then it goes on again.

    and he realizes it's to late he's gone down the wrong path?

    General CommentI see the chorus as having double meaning, it being:

    -Some people trust in love, and some people trust in hatred, etc.

    -He has some trust in love, some in hatred, fear, violence, faith, etc.
    Not really meaning he agrees completely with these things, but all of them are, in some part, correct (sometimes/depending on your point of view).

    And you need this kind of trust in everything to go on.

    It's the last line that bugs me, "and some just get away". Maybe it means some people just don't believe in any of those things and still get along.
