"Men Are All The Same" as written by Quinn Allman, Jeph Howard, Robert Mccracken and Daniel Whitesides....
Always safe to know, what is good for taking
Blood stains from your clothes
(Besides fire)
Like I said before
When I bite your tongue, out of your mouth, you'll know
(You'll know)

Just what am I supposed to say?
And tell you why I turned out this way?
Don't make me, don't make me

If you love it, then let it go
And how I thought you'll never know
Just don't blame me, don't blame me

You'll never make it alone
(It's easier to know)
You've always been on your own
(It's easier to know)

Nothing safe feels real
Waiting here to dodge, so open I reveal
(There's something)

Picking up my Brains
You can tell your mom that men are all the same
(The same)
Just what am I supposed to say?
And tell you why I turned out this way?
Don't make me, don't make me

If you love it, then let it go
And how I thought you'll never know
Just don't blame me, don't blame me

You'll never make it alone
(It's easier to know)
You've always been on your own
(It's easier to know)
You'll have to pay to watch me jump
That I love you more
You'll never make it alone
It's easier to go
It's easier to go

Nowhere to go, I'm not leaving
Not going, I'm not kissing you goodbye on my own
I'm nothing, just bleeding
I'm not kissing you goodbye

You'll never make it alone
(Let it go, I'm not leaving)
You've always been on your own
(Not going, I'm not kissing you goodbye)
You'll never make it alone
(On my own, I'm nothing, just bleeding)
You've always been on your own
(I'm not kissing you goodbye)

You'll never make it alone
(Let it go, I'm not leaving)
You've always been on your own
(Not going, I'm not kissing you goodbye)
You'll never make it alone
(On my own, I'm nothing, just bleeding)
You've always been on your own
(I'm not kissing you goodbye)

    General CommentThese lyrics are extremely wrong.

    Always safe to know what is good for taking blood stains from your clothes.
    Like I said before, when I bite your tongue out of your mouth, you'll know.

    Just what am I supposed to say?
    And tell you why I turned out this way?
    Don't make me. Don't make me.

    If you love it, then let it go.
    And how I died, you'll never know.
    Just don't blame me. Don't hate me.

    You'll never make it alone.
    It's easier to go.
    You've always been on your own.
    It's easier to go.

    Nothing safe feels real.
    Waiting here to die.
    Just hoping I reveal. There's something.

    Picking up my brains.
    You can tell your mom that men are all the same.

    Just what am I supposed to say?
    And tell you why I turned out this way?
    Don't make me. Don't make me.

    If you love it, then let it go.
    And how I died, you'll never know.
    Just don't blame me. Don't hate me.

    You'll never make it alone.
    It's easier to go.
    You've always been on your own.
    It's easier to go.

    You'll have to pay to watch me die.
    Then I'll love you more.
    You'll never make it alive.
    It's easier to go. It's easier to go.

    Nowhere to go. I'm not leaving. I'm not going.
    I'm not kissing you good bye. On my own.
    I'm nothing. Just bleeding.

    General CommentI absolutely love how they "sample" Kissing you goodbye in that raw form and slightly changing the notes of it. Again, much like The Best of Me, this song relates to a bad break up and all the things that went wrong with it.

    General CommentThis is about a guy killing himself - shooting himself in the head specifically (ie. picking up my brains - because of some girl and all the while telling her that with him gone she's not going to make it own her own and she'll regret that he's gone. She's going to pay to watch him die.

    This whole album Brett said is coming to terms with hating yourself. I can see that in every song so far on this album.

    - Sorry, had to fix it. My name is too long to read what I put.

    General CommentI think this song is absolutely amazing, the way he includes the chorus from "kissing you goodbye" over lapped with the lyrics in this song. I also love the "epic" feel they've given this song as well, I think it's absolutely brilliant, with the static, and then they turn the static into a beat before it comes in. Fantastic ending track.

    Lyrically, I think it speaks for it's self.

    General CommentMy favorite song off of Artwork :D I think it's absolutely beautiful and extremely powerful, the way that they sampled kissing you goodbye.

    I have a slightly different interpretation, however.

    To me, it's about a guy who's either depressed, or bipolar, or has some sort of mental disorder.
    And he and a girl are completely in love.
    But, he can feel himself changing, or spiralling deeper into his depression. But, he can't explain to her why he's suddenly depressed and distant, which upsets her. So, he leaves her, thinking that she'll be better off without him. And then, he realizes too late that that was a stupid idea, but she's gone. So, he kills himself because he's miserable without her but he wants her to move on.

    General CommentI have kind of a different interpretation as well...

    So this guy is with this girl. But he is terribly depressed and can't support her. Hence, even though they're together, she's always been on her own, and she'll never make it that way... it's better for her to go, and move on.

    He's trying to tell her that he's done and can't take it anymore. That she should forget about him, so that she won't be hurt by his suicide...

    The only thing that doesn't really fir is the "You'll have to pay" section. I kind of got the impression that he was telling her he'd kill her too if she didn't leave-- as in, "everyone in here is going to die, so you better leave." Perhaps he has resentment toward her for some reason.
