Caught a glimpse of you tonight
Made my way through the crowd
Small talked my way out of sight
Made a face at you tonight
Unnoticed
It’s not what you thought
Not what you thought I was like
My view has been slightly pessimistic as of late
My heart and face are quite conflicted in this place
Another night, in “the rock”
Cold and alone
Inside of this full house
Tune it out until the calm comes home
Stayed up painting through the night
These white walls
What’s funniest,
When morning comes the colors will be gone
Left a name and friends behind
They won’t last long
I think I’m close to fine
Half a year until I know I’m wrong
Another night, another life
I looked hard into the dark reflection of a window
How sick or dead I looked in it that evening
I made friends with a cement structure close to where I live
Another night on the inside
Just waiting for these walls to give
Another life, another life

    General Commenti really love this song... i think it's about being emotionally detached. feeling alone because he has built walls around himself to prevent being hurt.

    General CommentI agree with the person above. But also, considering some of these guys live in Rochester, NY, sometimes called the ROC, among other things, it might be a play on that, saying its basically another lonely night in Rochester, the Rock, but since a rock is a cold, hard place (so is rochester) it translates well into meaning just that. Also I think the story of the song is he saw a girl, probably before a show, and he also made a face at her, but she was surprised....also, he stayed up painting...but then it gets a little abstract

    General CommentI don't think it's about drug use. Like most songs on that album, it's just angsty stuff.

    General Commentis it just me or does anyone else think that thing song is about someones drug use?
    What�s funniest,
    When morning comes the colors will be gone
    Left a name and friends behind
    the colors are gone in the morning because the drugs have faded? he's left all his friends behind for drug use? a year an a half until he knows he has an addiction, when he looks him self in the mirror he finally notices how sick he looks. how the drugs have affected him?
    I made friends with a cement structure close to where I live
    delusional drugs? i honestly have no clue an i need help having this explained.. think i'm right but i'm not sure an it's bothering me.
