"Ex's and Oh's" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Ektor Varkatzas, Brandon Saller and Marc Mcknight....
You took me home
I drank to much
Cause of you my liver turns to dust
Cold rust takes cold creeping cool pain
Do you understand what I need?
When you feel your soul drop to the floor
Like a whole like an open bleeding sore
Then you'll have bleed like I've bleed
Then you'll have bleed this all left

Suck me down, its time rock and roll
Lets hit the bar, lets loose control
One false move you took me home
One false move your all alone

But it looks so good and it feels so nice
I've paid my price
I'll cut you out just to hear you scream,
Get away from me
And I can feel my heart beat racin'
As I realize what I must do
Get away from you

should've turned around like you
Last time I got a taste of you
I should've turned around like you
And I say we're through

You have haunt me like a plague
Weakness, we've worked at
But I digress
After all this
You're just like all the rest

Suck me down, its time rock and roll
Lets hit the bar, lets loose control
One false move you took me home
One false move your all alone

    General CommentGuy's i don't know what the fuck you are talking about!

    First....this song is about lead singer Alex's addiction to alcohol! Not about a fucking girl....read the lyrics its very clear!

    "Suck me down, it's time to rock and roll
    Let's hit the bar, let's lose control
    One false move; you took me home
    One false move; you're all alone"

    Basically means drink up, its time to party - let go out and have a good time...but when you make the move from going out with friends drinking at bars to drinking alone in your house you become an alcoholic

    "But it looks so good and it feels so nice
    I've paid my price
    I'll cut you out just to hear you scream:
    "Get away from, get away from me".
    And I can feel my heart beat racing
    As I realize what I must do
    Get away from, get away from, get away from you."

    It feels great to drink but you eventually pay the price when you abuse (any substance, not just alcohol) he came to the realization he had to stop drinking

    "Should've turned around like hell
    Last time I got a taste of you
    I should've turned and ran like hell
    And I say we're through"

    If it isn't obvious by now you may have been dropped on your head as a child!

    Ps. This album was fucking amazing! i couldn't have asked for a better follow up to the curse!

    General Commentwats the matter with you people? a band tries something different and you reject them completely. and in the 80 comments before this one only 1 of them actually had anything to do with the songs meaning

    General Commentuhhh song meaning? haha.
    i guess its just so simple its not even up for discussion?
    heres my interpretation..

    well, when i read it, its just a simple love mess, a guy who keeps falsely falling for a woman, making the mistake of using his penis instead of his brain when hes making these decisions. shes just a girl(not a woman) who ends up bringing him down because of her constant partying.

    or..

    its about someone beginning to deal with the effects of alcoholism.

    General CommentI think it definitely says something about all you people who think atreyu is going 'sorft' that I just had to sift through four pages of your bitching and whinging to find anything about the meaning of the song.
    The site is called songmeanings.net not bitchandmoan.com

    General CommentHonest to God, people. I come here to the lyrics and meaning of this song and almost every single damned comment is somebody complaining about how disappointing this song is. God, shut the fuck up, no one wants to hear you bitch. If you don't like the song, don't listen to it. Find another song off the album. Don't like the album, well too bad for you. It's a shame that people don't appreciate this band just because they did a slower song than they wanted them to.
    I personally think this song is great and I'm glad that Atreyu is putting more variety into their music. I also love thier older songs. Atreyu's just awesome

    General Commentatreyu mean big to me. i'm undecided about this song. its really infectious, but i mean fuck, alex hits a scream like twice. but i still can't see them going soft, cause 'her portrait in black,' sounds like it has serious black metal influences.
