I never took you for a trip, but
Sometimes, I don't know what you want
I can take it if you need to,
Take this out on someone

That little thing bitch with her head held so high
Talking tough, and I
Cut myself so I could feel something
I know is not a lie

That one stings a little,
I'm always in the middle
I don't expect, but try me,
And you will always find me here

This is where I scream from

Yeah, you can take it all and work it out, yes
There's a little bit of you in all this
You can say the only thing you know, yeah
Please, there's a better bit of me to see yet,
'Cause you haven't see any of my best
Know I hate myself without you now, yeah

Hurts the same when nobody knows,
Guess that's just how it goes
And I, I won't say anything at all

I was taking on a dollar sign, anxious,
Scared of what you need
Everybody wants a piece of you,
Everyone takes a piece of me

That one stings a little,
I'm always in the middle
I don't expect, but try me,
And you will always find me here

This is where I scream from

Yeah, you can take it all and work it out, yes
There's a little bit of you in all this
You can say the only thing you know, yeah
oh, Please, there's a better bit of me to see yet,
'Cause you haven't see any of my best
Know I hate myself without you now, yeah

Hurts the same when nobody knows,
Guess that's just how it goes
And I, I won't say anything at all

(I-I-I-Iiii)
This is the hook, take it like I took
I'm shaking like I shook before
And I'm a little better off
I'm not the only one
This is where I stopped before
And now you have a piece of me
I always slip away from
I always slip away from

I won't say anything, but

Yeah, you can take it all and work it out, yes
There's a little bit of you in all this
You can say the only thing you know, yeah
Please, there's a better bit of me to see yet,
'Cause you haven't see any of my best
Know I hate myself

Hurts the same when nobody knows,
Guess that's just how it goes
And I, I won't say anything at all
I won't say anything at all
I won't say anything at all

    General CommentRated 0  This song is great, an I'm sad that it didn't get more radio time when it came out :/

    Anyways, this song is about josh's (lead singers) insomnia

    I was having trouble figuring out the deeper meaning to this song...
    But Josh just said on the "Born to be marianas trench" episode on much music the other night that when he was in rehab for his heroin addiction, he had become a really bad insomniac, and one night instead of "sitting in my bed, frustrated" he wrote down words, that later became this song :)

    so this song isn't necessarily ABOUT his insomnia, but it was the fuel to this amazing song !!
    But the great thing about mtrench is that pretty much all of their songs can be about many different things, depending in who us listening :)
    LOVE YOU MT <3

    General CommentOops ignore the "rated 0" at the beginning :p
    I copied this from what I posted on the "say anything" lyrics (this is the radio edit version)
    And I guess it copied that too :P
