"...Discipline Your Daughters" as written by Cory Brandan Putman and Cron,....
I can't recall that last day of sun
Curtains closed and sitting with the lights out
An uncertain emptiness surrounds me
I'm numb and my judgments have switched to autopilot
Nothing left but echoes and thoughts of moving on

Don't stay but don't stay here.
Tell me all your secrets
I promise I'll be listening and if you ever come back home I'll be waiting, patiently
Tell me nothing sacred, I promise I wont hear a work and if you ever come back home.
I wont act so patiently

Black feathers and an unannounced call,
These things go hand in hand, [Repeat: x2]
Like talking to you and the intake of glass
I hope this knife in my hand
Speaks for itself, [Repeat: x2]
She's not coming back

[Repeat: x2]
Don't stay but don't stay here.
Tell me all your secrets
I promise I'll be listening and if you ever come back home I'll be waiting, patiently
Tell me nothing sacred, I promise I wont hear a work and if you ever come back home.
I wont act so patiently

    General Commenti think its about having a love, yet resentment, for someone who's left you. in the lyric, "Tell me all your secrets.I promise I'll be listening and if you ever come back home I'll be waiting patiently./Tell me nothing sacred. I pormise i won't hear a word and if you ever come back home, I won't act so patiently', to me, it's someone who's left without saying why, and so in the line tell me all your secrets which leads to ill be waiting patiently, it means if its valid, and youre honest with me about why you left, then ill have forgiveness. and then he says, tell me nothing sacred, as in nothing from the heart, which leads to "and i wont act so patiently", which means i cant forgive someone who's hurt me so badly and cant even give an explanantion as to why. i think its about letting someone become so close to you that youve become too vunerable, and paid the price after theyve left, "i cant recall the last day of sun", as in im lost in the dark without you. it's about the troubles of getting over someone and knowing how badly youre hurt by them, but willing to be in such a tied up state just to see them...to me :) fkn love norma jean. saw them live two nights ago.

    General Commentseems like it's about an ex-girlfriend that he wants to be with but doesn't want to be with at the same time.Like "don't stay away but don't stay here" and how the chorus kind of says the same thing but opposites of each other.So,it seems like he doesn't want to be with her but does at the same time.Then he realizes he can't be with her and screams "she's not coming back" at the end.That's what I got out of it at least.This song is one of my favorites from the antimother.the vocals just sound so cool in it

    General CommentThis album of theirs has heavy Deftones influence and can be heard easily in this song. Amazing album though.
