"Stranger Than Fiction" as written by Zoltan Bathroy and Ivan Moody....
It's stranger than fiction
How you've decayed
It must be so lonely
Lost within your ways

You're born alone, you die alone
The rest is yours to fill the gap
The world goes on without you here
Adjust or just collapse

Is this what you wanted to be
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be
Or was that a cry for help
By yourself, by yourself, by yourself

Verbal grenades
You throw in vain
I can't believe you'd stoop so low
Of all the things you took away
I miss my mind the most

Is this what you wanted to be
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be
Or was that a cry for help
By yourself, by yourself, by yourself

Is this what you wanted to be
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be
Or was that a cry for help!

It's stranger than fiction
How you've decayed
It must be so lonely
Lost within your ways

    General CommentI think most of the people talking about relationships and evil in spouses are reading to into it. He's simply saying that birth and death are journies you must undertake alone, but life is for you to make of it what you will. After this he's talking about a person obviously so caught up in themselves that they are driving everyone around them away. This can refer to anyone, a girlfriend, friend, family member, hell even an addict. It all depends on who is listening to the song.

    General CommentI think this is a song about the EVIL in women, (LOL)
    Its about a girl who changed for the worse, and didnt care how she messed with his head. The line"Verbal Grenades you throw in inane, I cant believe you'd stoop so LOW, of all the things you took away, I miss my MIND the most. Then at the end it says "It's stranger than fiction how you've decayed, It must be so lonely LOST within your ways. He is talking about how Its so unbelievable how she's changed and is now by herself because she is stuck living her bad ways and prolly dont want to change. Maybe she should listen to the ending of White Knuckles when Ivan says "I want you to HURT, I want you to BLEED, I want you to look beyond your own face, Past your infections.

    The BEST thing about 5FDP is that every song they have is GOOD. There is not a bad song on THE WAY OF THE FIST. There is NO WAY that this ALBUM is not worthy of ALBUM of the YEAR.

    General CommentThis song is easily one of the best songs off the way of the fist. 5fdp is the best band to come out of denver. period. This song talk about how a girl completely fucked over a guy when all he did was care for her during whatever she was going thru. This song explains something i've dealt with before, I love it.

    General CommentThis song is definately talking about the way relationships can decay
    it talks of how verbal greades and such occur after a while people get tired of eachothers crap and get into fights more often and do things they normally wouldnt do to the perosn they love
    sometimes they realize where its going and fix things
    sometimes they dont
    but
    i believe in this case here he i saying that it is her fault as she was the one who stooped that low
    and then most likely left him cause she took many things
    and obviously he still cared about her as he is losing his mind now
    also
    he asks her
    is this what you want
    to be alone

    clearly saying that he wishes he was still there with her

    perfect parrallel to my recent breakup except both people were doing stuff to make eachother angry and my girl and i realized how much we missed eachother finally
    =]
    but
    its tough for sure
    thats definately eveident as he say by yourself with emphasis
    because that is the worst part of all of that

    General CommentI can relate to this song. It does seem like it about getting screwed over.

    General CommentI don't believe this song is about a girl..i believe it's about how a guy(possibly Ivan) was screwed over by his best friend or maybe a family member he was close too.

    My InterpretationObviously its just a song telling this un-named woman "Is this what you wanted all along?"

    I've had my share of relationships that ended just like this, and yes, I still wonder if thats what she wanted out of it all.

    General Commentits amazing to listen to a song and you feel like it was made personally for you. i am experiencing what this song talks about right now and it sucks. when i heard this song i just replayed it about 5 times i couldnt stop listening. calling 5fdp amazing would be an understatement
