Stop dragging around,
I think that somebody knows.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)
I think that somebody knows.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)

So they can watch me explode,
Another piece of me is gone again.
I don't want you to go,
But I already know.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)
But I already know.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)
It's probably better to go,
And you can leave if it's easier.

Lost and useless,
No more bruises.
I'll burn this place down,
Don't make no sound.

September, won't you bring me some rain again?
This sun is melting my skin.
And I would give you anything to feel something.
September falls away ‘till I’m broken,
And I just hate the sound.
And I can feel the water changing me,
It’s changing me for good.

I won’t see you a while,
But I guess it depends.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)
Yeah, I guess it depends.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)

And maybe if I pretend
That if it’s out of sight,
It’s out of mind.
Nobody is wrong,
And nobody is right.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)
Nobody is right.
(Turn it up, turn it up.)
Then how come tonight,
Another piece of me is gone again?

Lost and useless,
No more bruises.
I’ll burn this place down,
Don’t make no sound.

September, won't you bring me some rain again?
This sun is melting my skin.
And I would give you anything to feel something.
September falls away ‘till I’m broken,
And I just hate the sound.
And I can feel the water changing me,
It’s changing me for good.

Bite down hard,
Bite down.

September, won't you bring me some rain again?
This sun is melting my skin.
And I would give you anything to feel something.
September falls away ‘till I’m broken,
And I just hate the sound.
And I can feel the water changing me,
It’s changing me for good.

September wont you bring me some rain again?
I'm melting here and I,
And I can feel the water changing me,
It’s changing me for good.

Bite down hard,
Bite down.

    General Commentwell anyways, I'm pretty sure that this song is about september... not shit eh.. but september was probably the month were he quit heroin and bulimia and he isn't used to life being so great.. so the skin is melting his skin.. or whatever, that's figuratively ofcoarse:P ... I'll have to ask.

    General CommentOkay so basically I think this song is about starting over again, a new slate. September is back to school time lots of new things happening and I think he feels september is a great time to start over and is saying "the rain" will clean him of his drug addiction and make him well again! Great band, awesome songs, AMAZING cd!

    General CommentIt's okay musique, I feel your pain. I'm addicted to SM.

    I wanted to go to the MT concert, and they were even with some other sweet bands, like Illscarlett, Social Code, and Three Days Grace [!!! I love TDG] and I was so mad. I couldn't go, you need to be 19 to get in. I'm not even close to being 19. :(

    If you think your commenting on MT is bad, go check out the Billy Talent pages, it's me all over.

    General CommentI actually am coming to try and guess at the meaning.

    Sorry if this comes off as confusing, but it's hard to translate into words.

    I think the rain represents all the negative things in life. The sun, obviously, represents the good and positive in the narrator's life.

    The narrator has had a hard life, dealing with issues and problems left and right, and he's used to being depressed. Suddenly, his life is going good again, and he hates the feeling of being happy, and calls out for his regular life, and the familiar feelings of sadness, anger, and depression.

    "This sun is melting my skin."

    This is talking about how the positive things are changing his personality for the better, and he doesn't like it because of the unfamiliarity of happiness and positivity.

    "And I would give you anything to feel something."

    Like I've been saying, he doesn't like the happy feelings. He feels fake when he is riding the emotions. He's bargaining with someone, saying, "Hey, make me like I was before, happiness is messing me up, and I feel like a fake." His 'feel something' is depression.

    "And I can feel the water changing me,
    It’s changing me for good."

    He must have got his wish, because the negatives are back and he's supposedly cleansing himself of the good feelings and changing back to who he was before.

    Hope I made sense.
