"You wouldn't know" as written by Vinnie Paul, Tom Maxwell, Chad Gray, Greg Tribbett and Jerry Montano....
You couldn't be, you couldn't be me even if you wanted to
Everything I've been through
Live your life, soaking up all my sunshine
And smile your whole life
I wouldn't know

Eighteen wheels are rolling
Eighteen wheels are crushing
Me down
Running me down
Cars are crashing
Cars are crashing all around me
Running me down

All my days are numbered
All my days are gray
All my skies are covered
All my ends are frayed

[Chorus:]
You couldn't be, you couldn't be me even if you wanted to
Everything I've been through, you wouldn't know
Live your life, soaking up all my sunshine
And smile your whole life
I wouldn't know

Lightning's crashing
Thunder's rolling all around me
Bringing me down
Stars are falling
Fires lighting all around me
Burning me down

All my days are numbered
All my days are gray
All my skies are covered
All my ends are frayed

[Chorus]

Feels like I'm falling down
Inside a fever rising
Buried my life deep in the ground
Left my existence lying, so let's go

You couldn't be, you couldn't be me even if you wanted to
Everything I've been through
Live your life, soaking up all my sunshine
And smile your whole life
I wouldn't know

    General CommentI think it's about how everyone says that their life sucks ass, but they've got it good compared to him. That you wouldn't know what it's like being in his shoes. And that they wouldn't know how to deal with everything he's been through.
    I've got this entire CD, and I gotta say, I'm in love with it. It's been on repeat since I got it.

    General CommentI think it's about vinnie and phill anselmo. I dont know, I just see vinnie and all is anger against phill for never call dimabag, maybe, if phill calls dimebag before all the accident hapened, pantera would back again and nothing of these would happen, but i just like vinnie told "look man, i loose a brother, how can you pretend to be like me if you dont loose nothing?"

    It's not spooky. It was planned that way. It's not like Nathan Gale didn't plan what he was doing. He picked a date where there was limited security, so it'd be easier to get in. He took people hostage so that he could get his way. You don't do something like that without planning it. I believe in Nathan Gale's mind, killing Dimebag on the same day as John Lennon made it more...legendary in a way?


    Also, does anyone find it strange that there are TONS of Kurt Cobain biographies & books about theories of how he died, but I haven't seen nearly anything like that for Dimebag? In a way, they both changed a genre of music in the same way. Pantera shaped metal, & Nirvana shaped Grunge.

    General CommentListening to this song really lets you know it is mudvayne's lead singer. This band is so overshadowed by being Vinnie's Pantera alternative that the two Mudvayne members I didn't even know about until it was obvious by listening to this song. If you love Mudvayne check out Hellyeah...

    General CommentI take this song as follows: Person A and Person B start life on an even plane. Person A gets all the breaks through life and doesn't need to work for anything they have. Person B gets all the shit handed to him and works their ass off just to get by. The song is saying that Person B could easily live like Person A but wouldn't want to while Person A could never live like Person B.
