"Like Suicide" as written by Shaun Welgemoed, Dale Stewart and John Humphrey....
Premeditation will kill the trust
They'll never know if you fear me
With every second collecting dust
I feel so bloated and weary
'Cause she belongs to heaven

She's coming over like a suicide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip as before
Another complicating suicide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip. AS BEFORE!

She'll cut you down with a single thrust
She's taking over too quickly
No medication can cure the lust
So say a prayer for the sickly
'Cause she belongs to heaven

She's coming over like a suicide

And its the same old trip, the same old trip as before
Another complicating suicide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip. As before! As before!

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time

You set me up to fucking fail this time


She's coming over like a suicide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip as before
Another overbearing suicide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip

She's coming over wearing genocide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip as before
Another complicating suicide
And its the same old trip, the same old trip. AS BEFORE! AS BEFORE!

    General Commentits about a woman getting into your head and controlling you and playin with you to make you wanna kill yourself (every woman does this to me so i relate to this big time). its the same ol trip as before means its nothing new to him cuz he deals with that feeling all the time. you set me up to fail means she did it on purpose (usually to feel good about herself, if anyone wonders why women do that), and shes comin over wearin genocide means she did the same thing to tons of other guys.

    piece of cake

    i dont know how this cant be obvious with the verse "She'll cut you down with a single thrust, shes takin over too quickly" in there...

    General CommentThis song is pretty obvious, it is about a person that always falls for somebody to quickly, like me most of the time.


    She'll cut you down with a single thrust (the first time you see her/him see has you hooked)
    She's taking over too quickly (you fall for them to quickly)
    No medication can cure the lust (theres no cure for falling to fast)
    So say a prayer for the sickly

    And the chorus drives that point home, shes coming over like a suicide and its the same old trip. Basically as it says, shes coming into my life and she has so much power over me because i fall for anybody to quickly and its the same old trip.

    And the bridge basically is saying, i know i am going to get hurt again because i fell to fast. You set me up to fucking fail this time.

    General CommentThe albums dedicated to Eugene, but that doesnt mean every song is about him, as far as I know, only "Rise above this" is about him. All songs on the album were written before his death anyway, so its not about his suicide.

    I think there could be lots of interpretations of this song.
    I'm guessing by "she" Shauns's referring to Heroine though...

    General CommentI agree... I can see the heroin reference here..

    She'll cut you down with a single thrust
    She's taking over too quickly
    No medication can cure the lust
    So say a prayer for the sickly
    Cause she belongs to heaven

    I'm not sure, a lot of seethers new stuff as seethery if that makes sense, I hope it grows on me though cause I love seether

    General CommentI think it is about a bad relationship that really pissed him off. Hes fed up with her and can't take it. Maybe im wrong but i don't think hes talking about an actual suicide.

    General CommentThe song is about Shaun's brother who committed suicide. I saw Seether live in September and he said it then. Also it says in the album booklet for "Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces" that the whole album is dedicated to his brother.

    General CommentHmm... I agree about the lyrics. They seem fucked up but the lyrics that come with the cd say "she's coming over like a suicide" and "she's coming over wearing genocide", so the only person that can be right here is the actual lyricist himself.

    I think this song is talking about the loss of someone dear... and like they can't do anything about it, they feel useless. But it could also refer to drugs.

    General CommentBy far one of my absolute favorite Seether songs. truly I see no reference to Heroin in this song. I mean reading the comments then the lyrics I can but thats not what I think of. I think of War actually.

    "She's coming over like a suicide
    And its the same old trip, the same old trip as before
    Another complicating suicide
    And its the same old trip, the same old trip. AS BEFORE!"

    She, being war in this case, is killing many for almost completely unnecessary reasons, kind of like suicide.
    The same old trip is referring to the fact that every war seems to be the same. fighting for pointless things.

    "She'll cut you down with a single thrust
    She's taking over too quickly
    No medication can cure the lust
    So say a prayer for the sickly"

    This part I think of the wounded. No medication can stop them from wanting to fight. their lust for fighting I suppose you could say. And obviously we pray for them to come home alive.

    And so forth you could think of the rest of the song like this. I know this isn't right and I don't claim it to be. It's Just What I think of when I hear this song.
