"Books & Books" as written by and Daniel Aponte Jay Vilardi....
It's in my face
How much I've changed
The colors clash
Of who I used to be
Things are getting weird
My thoughts are changing
So get me out of this place
Get me out of this place

Go ahead and write this down
So you'll remember now
So you'll remember now
Go ahead and scream it out
So you'll remember now
Everything you said

It's obvious that I've become
Everything that you don't want me to be
I need to change, rearrange
Start walking your way
Start walking your way

Maybe love pokes through
When we're at our worst
Maybe love comes through
When we're broken at the end

    General CommentThe verse part of this song sounds a lot like Jimmy Eat World's "Gotta Be Somebody's Blues".

    My InterpretationI think this song talks about somebody who has walked away from God. "It's in my face How much I've changed".
    He knows that he needs to get back on the right path, and he's calling on God to help him. "Get me out of this place"
    The chorus, I believe, is God replying, telling him not to forget this. He doesn't want him to fall back into his previous life. He is saying to write it down, to scream it out, whatever necessary to remember.
    In the last verse, he is saying that he was broken, nothing left, yet God showed him love and helped him through.
    So, in short, I see this as a continuous struggle that is happening with many people. We just need to remember to keep on praying and working at it, and God will help us.

    Sorry if this is a bit unorganized, but I typed this out on my iPod. I may have had a few more quotes otherwise.
