Say it to my face
Look me in the eyes
And say what you have to say
You know we can't erase
These words before they bind
And turn the final page

Ah, here comes alone again

Coz everything's broken
everything's vacant
everything's wasted time again
Sentiments, hopeless
Innocence, jaded
everything's wasted time again

And so we leave this stage
And all our best written lines
and all the acts we played
so, say you want to leave
and say we'd never have
the way we always hope and we'd cry

And say hello to alone again

Coz everything's broken
everything's vacant
everything's wasted time again
Sentiments, hopeless
Innocence, jaded
everything's wasted time again

Someday we might find
(someday we will find)
some sacred place in time
(yeah, in time)
but until then
all will share
our dreams we left behind

    General CommentI think this song is about a break-up. He realised that all they did was waste each others time. It was all hopeless and all they did was say hurtful things to eachother.

    General CommentI agree with Incubus man that it's about a break-up. However, I disagree with what he said a little. He's not saying the whole relationship was "wasted time". He's saying that it was good at the start but, inocence became jaded and sentiments became hopeless. So now the time until they break up is "wasted time" and he just wants to get it over with.

    General CommentTo me its about a breakup or pending breakup that he can see coming, (or she might be getting ready to leave him) d rather then drag it out, he says get it over with and just end it
    The reason I see it this way, is the line "everythings broken, everythings vacant". He's brokenhearted and feeling empty. That and the other lines pointing to broken dreams and etc.

    General CommentI agree but i also feel there's more to it... he knows it's over but he keeps trying that's why 'sentiments, hopeless' and it's about to be over but it's not quit which is why he still says 'say hello to alone again' but they are definitely in the middle of a fight when the song starts... and he's not ready to give up cuz he says 'Someday we might find, some sacred place in time'... at least that's what i think...

    General Commentyeah I like this song! yeah ! made me think that girls are really sometimes selfish thinking about themselves. even though she knows that it cost too much pain. most beautiful girls are really proud of themselves and the moment they met a guy whose handsome than they're so called boyfriends they can't avoid flirting with them.
    maybe that's the way how reality works. I don't know about relationships but I had an experience about this thing.
    but I'm not generalizing that all girls are like this.
    maybe because of what they see in the movies these days.
    maybe because of the trend these days. which makes the generation embrace polygamy. talking about screaming infidelities.
    and I hate those girls who thinks they're really damn pretty and thinks that they should look for a guy whose just handsome and if not rich but what about us ? nice guys !!! not so cute but nice and sensible whose ready to defend them whose ready to sacrifice everything in the name of love! whose going to be there every time she needs some help whose not gonna turn a back from her.
    yeah! that's why I don't believe in love anymore. even though I'm a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints I still don't believe in truly love anymore . I guess that true love are for all of those people whose rich and famous whose handsome and not ugly like me. even though I have a job girls seems not satisfied
    if your diligent what they want is a guy who has a high status whose a professional . fetch! rock n roll all of this all of what we have in this world is just temporary we cannot bring this into our grave. life is so short I'm already 26 and I want to die at 27 like Kurt Cobain yeah you know your right I'm a loser! but who cares I ain't seen my dad I came from a broken family . and my job is just to teach Koreans how to speak English on-line and no matter what I do no one appreciates that I need to support my mom cause she's already 56 and I never had a chance to go into college cause it's either I had to choose between going to school without any food in your stomach or just have to look for a job to pay for the bills and earn for a living. I had a girlfriend whom I lost because she said that she found someone whose better way far better than me since she can't see me anymore cause she's now leaving in the states and I'm still here in hell (Philippines) she choose to go with that guy despite of my love for her. I don't even understand why she just left me for that guy. and why do girls now
    a days choose a guy whom they just think he's cute and he's got a class. so why not? fetch the world is so ugly.!!! can't control my self I'm sorry. -peace out- rock music rules- grunge,metal, death, gothic,black,heavy,hairmetal,glam,numetal. as long as it's rock
    cool -amen-

    General Commentguitaranalyzer55 is a weakling who only bitches about shit. I pay my bills and most of my parents working 50 hour weeks at two jobs and i am going to college on top of all that. stop being a pansy and apply yourself u failure. the human body can take damn near anything just work your ass off and you will be fine. btw this song is after the break up because of the so, say you want to leave
    and say we'd never have
    the way we always hope and we'd cry

    And say hello to alone again

    so its either post breakup or during the breakup.

    and yes i only looked this up because me and my girl are having problems. but isn't everyone.
