I’ve already come to terms
With bridges I have burned
We all make mistakes
Keep preparing for the worst
So it won’t seem adverse
Just like we rehearsed
Click, two, three, heartbreaking music
So close to loss we use it
How much honesty’s healthy
Say what’s on your mind
The only way to be
The drugs are only for dessert
Do your homework first
We don’t administer the cure for that thirst
‘Cause it’s always been heartbreaking music
So close to death we use it
Writing this over and over
It will never mend
I am the jest malignant cell
Playwright to your hell
I think I knew you well
But I wish I were as smart as you
I could I have changed your mind
Would of, should of, the question ‘til I die
But it’s always been heartbreaking music
So close to life we abuse it Killing

    General CommentYup, this is Lagwagon at their most personal. The whole "Resolve" album is really really well done. I didn't know it was written in 2 weeks!

    General CommentIt's definitively about their old drummer, but I also think it's about people we've hurt and how some things will never heal completely with time. It might seem like they do, but the scars will always be there and can open up as wounds anytime. Such a powerful song.

    "I am the jest malignant cell" I think this line refers to how thoughts of guilt can perpetuate into something worse or how depression and suicidal thoughts start out as something small and slowly take over your mind.
