So what have we done with x and o's
To mark our way home? (home)
It seems as though we've forgotten the way we move
Can we save ourselves from the ones we're becoming?

Please monsieur remember don't tell me how to get somewhere better
Why write with confidence, why try to save them,
We try to not forget, It's so much better there
Did you think you could make it on your own?
It was so much better there

So what have you done
To make yourself a little bit happier
I can feel the vibrations, when you said i'd feel nothing
I'm giving up, so give it up

Please monsieur remember don't tell me how to get somewhere better
Why write with confidence, why try to save them?
We try to not forget, it's so much better there
Did you think you could make it on your own?
It was so much better there

This won't save anything, this won't mean anything tonight.
This won't mean anything,
This won't mean anything tonight
This won't mean anything
This won't mean anything tonight

Why write with confidence, why try to save them,
We try to not forget, it's so much better there
Did you think you could make it on your own?
It was so much better

This won't mean anything
This won't mean anything tonight.

    My InterpretationFrom my eyes, the persona is mocking someone because even though he advised him not to take this particular path (as someone who had taken the same path in life), this certain someone insist on taking it. In the end, the certain someone ended the way the persona expected him to.

    First verse focuses on how the persona questions himself as to how he got into such a horrible situation. This is a way of telling that someone that if you take that path in life, you will, at some point, end up questioning yourself just like the persona did. Therefore the persona is advising the person BEFORE he is to make a decision so that he may have a brighter future.

    "Please monsieur remember, don't tell me how to get somewhere better" is basically a sarcastic statement. When the person he is advising retorts and says that this particular path in life will make his future brighter, the persona disagrees, as HE himself had been in that situation, so HE would know better.

    The whole chorus seems to be a monologue from my point of view. The persona is telling himself not to bother advising people because they will take the path to doom anyway, for whatever reason. However, he knows that the position he was in before he made the choice was MUCH better than what became of him now. Nonetheless, since people wouldn't listen anyway, he shouldn't be wasting his effort and breath.

    I particularly like the phrase "Did you think you could make it on your own?", because what he is trying to say really shines through this phrase, which is that if you don't listen to your superior's advice, you would regret it.

    2nd verse deals with how the persona being advised would get himself hurt because of his curious nature to travel in that particular path. Even before he took the path, the persona felt that he had no real conviction in following that path, instead just doing it for the heck of it. Therefore the persona gives up on advising him. "So give it up!" is strong because the persona argues that in following that path, he is giving up his life, or wasting his life.

    The bridge has 2 possible meanings. The first one is where the persona believes that whatever advise he gives will not be conveyed by the opposite party, therefore it means nothing. Another interpretation would be that, when the person being advised on goes back to his advisor and tells him about his horrible situation, the persona feels that it doesn't anything to him anymore as he had ALREADY advised him against taking that particular path before this, therefore he would not be surpised nor would he take sympathy on that particular person.

    This sarcasm-filled song just makes me great, just like a lot of other sarcastic rock songs :D. Take Mysery loves its company for example.

    General CommentIve listened to the demo version of this song ..i like the beggining, its more original than the new version's.
    the rest is okay..

    they took the guitar riffs off from the original "bury your head" ... and they added it to this song.. (if anyone gets what i mean) ...that sucks..

    on the other hand..
    i don't know why but ....as it gets to end..
    the minute 3:20 of the song.. it reminds me of CHIODOS "the word best friend becomes redifined"
    ...like.. A LOT .. that rox!

    General Comment"Why write with confidence, why try to save them?"
    That's a biblical reference... The apostle Paul wrote "with confidence" in trying to save many...

    This might be a cry for athiesm, however I don't know the band well enough to make a good guess as to their intent.

    General CommentI agree with paramedico on the christian lyrics... however I'm not sure if Saosin is christian so if they weren't that wouldn't make much sense.
    But it does seem to be speaking about atheism vs religion (particularly christianity if the bible reference is correct) Such that we feel it is better in an atheistic lifestyle because there are fewer restrictions, more pleasures of the body, and perhaps people are forgetting the pleasures of the mind > the gifts of God or other such religious happiness. hence "can we save ourselves from the ones we're becoming" (which doesn't really fit with anthony vs cove... thefallingline) and "it's so much better there"
    Then I also agree with zigen on the one night stand, though "this won't mean anything tonight" could represent any sort of sin or deviance from a particular religion. If there's no restriction on it then there's no need to worry and so act on impulse.
    Not sure if religion is the correct interpretation but it certainly seems to fit well.
