"Room 409" as written by and Matthew/james Tuck....
I can't believe what I've seen
So scratch my eyes out
You were at ease on your knees in his apartment
You said his name as I came in your direction
Now I can choose what to do with both of you

I loved you, you hurt me
I loved you, you hurt me bad, go

Your words, bury me of what I used to be
I can't erase all those things I've seen
Your heart smothers me and now it's hard to breathe
I can't erase all my memories

I take a step to the left, now you see me
Tears start to fall as you crawl in his apartment
You screamed his name as I came in your direction
Fists start to fly say goodbye there's no excuses

I loved you, you hurt me
I loved you, you hurt me bad, go

Your words, bury me of what I used to be
I can't erase all those things I've seen
Your heart smothers me
And now it's hard to breathe
I can't erase all my memories

Hey, there's no excuses
Hey, there's no excuses

I loved you, you hurt me
I loved you, you hurt me bad, go

Your words, bury me of what I used to be
I can't erase all those things I've seen
Your heart smothers me
And now it's hard to breathe
I can't erase all my memories
(erase all my memories of you)

    General CommentYea, this is by no means a "happy" song. lol, yea, it's about a girl cheating on her bf. Not only that but after he sees this he explodes on his gf and theguy she's cheating on him with. All of their lyrics can be taken literally, thats what sucks about this band. There's no complexity in the songs but instrument wise they own!

    General CommentIt's a great song, that's for sure. The band aren't exactly groundbreaking but they never intented to be. They're good at what they do.

    General CommentSince when did a band have to be complex? Alright, maybe they would be better thay way, but what's to say there is a deeper level, and you just can't see deep enough into it?

    General Commenti agree with my_gf that some chick got caught cheating on her guy. it's pretty suggestivehere, saying she was on her knees in his appartment! after that though i think he probably kicked the other guy's ass ("fists start to fly - say goodbye"). he wishes he could forget what she'd done to him, but he can't.

    General CommentThe person in this song, maybe even Matt himself comes to Room 409 in a apartment complex where he catches his girlfriend cheating on him.

    "Now I can choose what to do with both of you" is an interesting lyric because he knows he has the proof and there can't be any lies because he sees it right there.

    He loved her, and she was being two faced and backstabbing, and he begins to get full of so much rage as he watches this go on..

    Actually, I believe he begins to punch the girl down instead of the guy, or beat both of their asses. She's crawling away from him then fists start to fly.

    Bullet is known for having hateful lyrics towards backstabbing women, see Hand of Blood..lol

    Anyway he's trying to sit there and get over this like a man, but it's killing him inside and repeatedly filling him up with rage, he just keeps playing it over in his head.
