    General CommentThe lyrics conflict with the sound, that's why it was made into a b-side. The instrumental sound and title give inklings of an addiction relapse, which is not what the lyrics imply.

    General CommentI don't think this song is a remix; it's probably a track that was just didn't make the cut for The Fragile. There's a short clip of Trent singing this song in the studio in the dark. People mistaken it for The Wretched a lot, because of those lyrics.

    General Commentnah I think you'll find it is a remix. Most of the songs on Things Falling Apart are, and besides, not only are the lyrics the same as the Wretched, they're basically sung the same anyway.

    General Commentbut Trent sung those lyrics for this song and The Wrecthed separatly. So it makes this song a 75% outtake and 15% remix. makes no sense but who cares. and i noticed that this song has a piano intro, a littlebit like Just Like You Imagined has. so could it be, that The Wretched AND JLYI was mixed, you know, 2 songs in one?

    General CommentThis song kicks ass! The deep rymithic bass lines create a sense of destruction and empty-ness.

    General CommentThis song is incredible. The beat leads up to the perfect climax of the song. The woman whispering it is almost taunting you with the worse.

    Now YOU know.... this is what it feels like ...

    And then with Trent's powerful echo in the background.

    Very good song.
