If I could take one more
If all the worst from you
And as I fell
I push this all away

Get up off this floor
Give it back to you
I know you wanted to
Take me out...

I know you tried to take me out
I won't forget
I watched you fall apart
It's over now
It's me and
I hear the worst you spit out
I can see right through you
I watched you fall apart
It's over now

If I could see you know
I'd push the worst in you
And as I stood
I'd pull this all away

If I could show you how
And I remember you
And I know you wanted to
Take me out...

I know you tried to take me out
I won't forget
I watched you fall apart
It's over now
It's me and
And I hear the worst you spit out
I can see right through you
I watched you fall apart
It's over now

And I know you tried to take me out
And I won't forget you
I know you tried to take me out
I won't forget you
I watched you fall apart
It's over now
It's me and
And I hear the worst you spit out
I can see right through you
I watched you fall apart
It's over now

    General CommentThis is such an awesome song to wrap up True Parallels.
    It's one of my favorite Trust Company songs.

    General CommentRecently went to a TrustCO show in Florida. This is by far my fave TrustCO song and my ex and I shouted Retina so loud that they took our request at the end. :)

    Err, this is song meanings, not storys about bands, so:

    I don't think there's any deep meaning to this song or anything. Kevin said that they fought the record label over this song a lot, but not sure if that was before or after this recording of it.

    Either way, you can feel the emotion behind it. And it's one of those songs that is vague enough that it's not about any one experience.

    I would describe it, however, as one person's bitter view of a past event that they are trying to move on from.
