VERSE 1:
I would love to know, just what you'd do
If you got your hands on me,
'Cos I've single handedly, aggresively, repeatly
Destroyed your world, I've stole your girl or she stole me,
I'm not quite sure but it was so good.

CHORUS:
And now you're circling the drain,
I pulled the plug on you now
And hopefully you will refrain
From treating everyone like shit
When I'm gone, I will rise up, I will rise up,
Haunting your dreams,
I will rise up, I will rise up, I will, I will, I will rise up from the dead ...

VERSE 2:
Scapegoat the opposite sex,
And blame it on your victim complex,
Stupid motherfucker who's just down on his luck
If you were hanging from a tree you know I wouldnt give a ____ ...

[PART 2]
VERSE 3:
I'm sitting way up here on my cloud,
I've been watching you living your life without me around.
And it just kills me to see it but if you love them, you'll let them go.

I'm sitting way up here on my cloud
And I've been watching you living your life without me around.
And it just kills me to see you but there's not much I can do
So I'll use this clichéd breakdown in a vain attempt to take down
Any memory of you ...

[PART 3]
BRIDGE:
You're thinking what you've heard so far are just words,
And that anyone could write them down,
Anyone could make these sounds,
But you're wrong, you're wrong.

This isn't just a song about you,
Picking out what's wrong about you,
This is just me screaming from the heart.
It's not the former or the latter,
You were just the subject matter,
This is my life and you were just one part.

But saying that we were good while we lasted,
I'm not saying that I've moved on and I'm past it

But take into consideration all the fucking aggrovation
Pair it with each hug and kiss and memories I know you'll miss,
Each stick and stone they broke our bones but at least we'd never be alone.
So close your eyes and visualise: relationships without demise,
And moments filled with butterflies, without the lies, beneath blue skies.
Now you know these aren't just lyrics scribbled down so I can finish
A song about another girl who came along; destroyed my world.
This right here's my heart and soul prepared for you so it can roll
Right off your tongue to clear up doubt; remind you what you've done.
And if you're somehow still confused, I need you to ...

OUTRO/REPRISE:
Take a breath and hold it,
Think about what life would be like
If you'd just have thought this through,
Memories would be present tense,
Dilemmas would be common sense,
And I would be with you ...

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by them. It's too bad nobody's heard of them and that they had to break up.
    Anyway this song is in 3 parts and each one describes part of his relationship.
    This song is exactly what I recently went through so I can relate to it particularly well.


    VERSE 1:
    I would love to know, just what you'd do
    If you got your hands on me,
    'Cos I've single handedly, aggresively, repeatly
    Destroyed your world, I've stole your girl or she stole me,
    I'm not quite sure but it was so good.
    (Him and another guy were competing over a girl and the singer won. He taunts the other guy by saying how the girl finally chose him over the other guy)

    CHORUS:
    And now you're circling the drain,
    I pulled the plug on you now
    And hopefully you will refrain
    From treating everyone like shit
    When I'm gone, I will rise up, I will rise up,
    Haunting your dreams,
    I will rise up, I will rise up, I will, I will, I will rise up from the dead ...
    (He continues to taunt the other guy saying that he hopes stealing the girl won't make the other guy call him names when he's not around cuz either way he still has the girl.)

    VERSE 2:
    Scapegoat the opposite sex,
    And blame it on your victim complex
    Stupid motherfucker who's just down on his luck
    If you were hanging from a tree you know I wouldnt give a ____ ...
    (The other guy blames the girl for choosing the singer and comes up with excuses. Honestly, it was just unfortunate luck that he didn't get the girl. The singer again shows his contempt for the other guy for trying to get the girl by saying even if you were dead i wouldn't care)
    [PART 2]
    VERSE 3:
    I'm sitting way up here on my cloud,
    I've been watching you living your life without me around.
    And it just kills me to see it but if you love them, you'll let them go.
    (i see this part as to all parties involved and being from an outsider as they can relate to any of the 3. It could be another guy, possible just a friend that's been ignored by the girl, telling the girl to let the other guys go and be with him instead. It could be the singer/other guy telling the girl to just be with him and not worry about anybody else or what they think.)

    I'm sitting way up here on my cloud
    And I've been watching you living your life without me around.
    And it just kills me to see you but there's not much I can do
    So I'll use this clichéd breakdown in a vain attempt to take down
    Any memory of you ...
    (this part makes me lean towards the first part of the verse being a 3rd guy. She leaves both the singer and the other guy for the 3rd guy. The singer still sees the girl around from time to time and it kills him inside but he knows she's made her choice and there's nothing he can do so he's going to try his hardest to forget her)

    [PART 3]
    BRIDGE:
    You're thinking what you've heard so far are just words,
    And that anyone could write them down,
    Anyone could make these sounds,
    But you're wrong, you're wrong.
    (this part is from the singer to the girl. She doesn't notice him and doesn't notice the song's about her. She downplays it as nothing special, but she's wrong cuz it's unique and about her)

    This isn't just a song about you,
    Picking out what's wrong about you,
    This is just me screaming from the heart.
    It's not the former or the latter,
    You were just the subject matter,
    This is my life and you were just one part.
    (He does what she did to him; he attempts to make her feel unimportant saying it just so happened that he wrote a song about her, she's nothing special and his life will go on.)

    But saying that we were good while we lasted,
    I'm not saying that I've moved on and I'm past it
    (They had a good relationship while it lasted and he accepts that. But he's far from over her and moving on.)

    But take into consideration all the fucking aggrovation
    Pair it with each hug and kiss and memories I know you'll miss,
    Each stick and stone they broke our bones but at least we'd never be alone.
    (He tells her to remember the good with the bad and he knows that she'll miss the relationship they had. He admits that while they did have their arguments, they had the potential to be together for the rest of their lives)

    So close your eyes and visualise: relationships without demise,
    And moments filled with butterflies, without the lies, beneath blue skies.
    (He tells her to think about happy relationships, without any of the problems theirs had, how their relationship should've been. It should've lasted forever, and neither one of them should've lied.)

    Now you know these aren't just lyrics scribbled down so I can finish
    A song about another girl who came along; destroyed my world.
    This right here's my heart and soul prepared for you so it can roll
    Right off your tongue to clear up doubt; remind you what you've done.
    (He says this part isn't just quickly written about some girl that broke his heart. The song is his heart, everything he feels. He wrote it so it will make sense and it will remind the girl about how she ended the relationship that could've been perfect)

    And if you're somehow still confused, I need you to ...
    Take a breath and hold it,
    Think about what life would be like
    If you'd just have thought this through,
    Memories would be present tense,
    Dilemmas would be common sense,
    And I would be with you ...
    (He ends by saying that if she still doesn't understand that he still loves her and how she broke his heart and ended the relationship he tells her to just stop and think about what she did. If she hadn't made the rash decision to break up with him, they'd still be making new memories. Any questions she had about if she made the right choice wouldn't need to be asked because they could've been perfect together. If she wouldn't have dumped him she still could've had him)
