"Blackout" as written by and Robert/ramiirez Gutierrez....
I'm walking down the street
I'm feeling kind of beat
From dragging myself to nowhere

Would you want to hold my hand?
No, you wouldn't understand
Blame it on society
No one's good enough

I saw the sun die; blackout
All of you people, watch out
Stay for the week and we can
Hide 'til it all blows over

I saw you yesterday
But you turned the other way
"How's the going?" should I say?
Yeah, I know you know my name

Won't you come in for some tea?
We can talk about the world
How it's all made up, you see
Who's lying?

I saw the sun die; blackout
All of you people, watch out
Stay for the week and we can
Hide 'til it all blows over

Rise
We will
Rise
Would you take me,
Mold me,
Break me?
No more faking,
Take me somewhere real
Where I can feel
Feel

I saw the sun die; blackout
All of you people, watch out
Stay for the week and we can
Hide 'til it all blows over
I saw

    General CommentI think it's about being rejected by a guy (I saw you yesterday. But you turned the other way), and feeling like an outcast, (Not accepted in soicety)

    I dunno. Just a guess. ;]

    General Comment"Yeah, I know you know my name." That line always gets to me. I had a fling with a guy in a band, and I feel like screaming that out to him. As in, "Okay, I may not be a so-called rockstar or have a name that tons of people know, but we both know that YOU know my name.."
