"Knife" as written by and Christopher Michael Taylor Daniel Rossen....
I want you to know
When I look in your eyes
With every blow
Comes another lie

You think it's alright
You think it's alright
You think it's alright
You think it's alright

Can't you feel the knife?
Can't you feel the knife?
Can't you feel the knife?
Can't you feel the knife?

    General Commenti have a feeling this song is about a loving relationship he has/had has truly been damaged from all of their argueing leaving each other to lie to solve the problem momentarily, but the reoccuring effects keep building up and up. Leaving them unsatistfied and lost.

    Song Meaningi feel like this song is someone reaching out to a friend of theirs that is addicted to drugs;
    because they mention the eye & "blow,"
    its a sad way of life, but addicts always seem to "think it's alright"
    when really its as if they're stabbing a knife into the people close to them.

    My Interpretationfor me this song has described the feeling of trying to maintain a friendship with someone who doesn't return my romantic feelings. i guess my lie would be that i told him it was alright. he thinks it's alright. and. it still hurts me. feelin' the knife.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful...I love the way it sounds...

    and I understand where they're coming from with the lyrics...being lied to by someone you care about is never alright...

    The video is fucking crazy....
