Sucker myself into believing I'm doing the right thing
I think of your face and I pretend that I'm not alone
I'm lining up all the love and the trust and the good things,
But there's a hole in my heart where I once kept a piece of home

What if one of yours turned a color
You didn't mean for it to be
And what if one of yours became another
Would you hear it say:
Let me go, this isn't what I wanted, I can't be here anymore
let me go
This isn't what I needed, I can't exist here anymore

I've been thinking about my money
and how I gave it all away
I've been thinking about the people
and how I should have never let them stay
I've been thinking about how I always have to write just one more song
Well you know me, and that'll never change
But I meant well all along, and I was wrong

What if one of yours turned a color
You didn't mean for it to be
And what if one of yours became another
Would you hear it say:
Let me go, this isn't what I wanted, I can't be here anymore
let me go
This isn't what I needed, I can't exist here anymore

Replace the silence with deafening sound
Send away the people, I want no one around
This is my greatest mistake
And I will not be denied
I'm crawling my way to the surface outside

What if one of yours turned a color
You didn't mean for it to be
And what if one of yours became another
Would you hear it say:
Let me go,
This isn't what I wanted, I can't be here anymore
Let me go,
This isn't what I needed, I can't exist here anymore

    General CommentProbably to do with Limp Bizkit and how he felt his music was being molested into something he never wanted to see it become... he tried to not be selfish about it but eventually realized his selflessness was causing his own misery.

    I think it can be applied to any situation where one is not happy where they are in life; even though one may have done the right things, at the end of the day all that matters is whether you're happy with yourself or not... in turn the moral appears to be sometimes it's not so selfish and terrible to look after what's good for you, sometimes you have to.

    When I'm there, this is the song I go to and it helps me understand things a little more.

    General CommentJesus I can't believe how similar this song is to something Trent would do. It sounds exactly like NIN, especially the verses. I love this band.

    General CommentI always thought it was about a relationship between a child and their parents.

    "But there's a hole in my heart where I once kept a piece of home" - there's a hint.

    And the chorus just speaks in rebelling "What if one of yours turned a color" like (What if one of your children turned against you)

    "I can't exist here anymore" like the "home" environment is just not suitable for him.
    I also read up that Wes' father was a priest/pastor. So how could you ever expect Wes' character to relate to that? And with that said, I stand with my interpretation of the song.

    Btw, I love this track and can relate to it alot!
