"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 CommentThis song says he's been through a lot in life, has seen and lived some stuff. That nobody can beat the pain his lived through. That he wouldn't know sunshine if it was shining on him.

    General CommentI think he is talking about how so many people out there talk about how hard they have had it, but really they didn't. He has had it rough and their lives can't compare to the pain he has had.

    General CommentWhen I hear this song I think of my step-sons mom and how we did all the work and how hard it was, all the tough times we went through and she wants all the credit. I think it is about Jealousy. About thinking the grass is greener on the other side, but that is not always the case
