Two sides of me agree to disagree
they went their seperate ways today
one stays at home the other walks the streets
that's how i lost the quiet side of me

he packed my yearbook and directories
and a list from bad to worse
he's got a list that he's been holding in
and you're the ones to hear it first

knocking on the door of the friends who betrayed me
standing in the street with the sign that he made me
calling all the liars to tell them that the truth is
better in the end when you're taking your revenge

fire on the third floor, heading out the back door
is the quiet side of me, making up for all the time he lost

once my quiet side is satisfied
there's no one left to feed his appitite
he'll go back to how he used to be
until my quiet side through with me

hanging up the phone on the friends with the favors
gonna get them back for the scars that they gave us

fire on the third floor, heading out the back door
is the quiet side of me, making up for all the time he
hand to play nice guy, telling little white lies
now the quiet side of me, is claiming his revenge on everything...

    General CommentWhy does this song have no comments?
    I'm so glad Meese is finally up here on SongMeanings... I love this band.
    Well this song is about a guy who pretty much put up with a whole bunch of bullshit his whole life. One side of him is the "Nice Guy" who lets everything just happen, and the other is the guy who was hurt by everything but stayed quiet... But he was pushed too far and finally went over the edge and goes out and takes his revenge on everyone who has ever hurt him or betrayed him.
    The song is pretty self explainatory... Amazing just like all their other songs.

    General Commentit shouldn't be "he's got a list that he's been holding in", it should be "he's got a speech that he's been holding in"...
    this song rules!

    It sounds like "he packed his yearbook and directories".
