Some friends, you left me hanging in a room with a noose in a chair.
You told me to stay put and reminded me why I was there.
Cold blooded and misguided, You thought this would be your best,
then you try to hide it. A chance to move ahead.

Today was the day you tried to shut me down.
Today was the day you tried to shut me down!

Be honest;
Did you ever mention my name?
Did you get sick of the shame?
Did you lay on your back?

Be honest;
Did you ever mention my name?
Did you get sick of the shame?
Did you lay on your back, like a WHORE!?

Close minded with no direction, a chance to prove who you were.
The friends who forgot to think all of the things that you're not.

Today was the day you treed to shut me down.
Today was the day you treed to shut me down.
Today was the day you treed to shut me down!
Today was the day you treed to shut me down!

Be honest;
Did you ever mention my name?
Did you get sick of the shame?
Did you lay on your back?
Be honest;
Did you ever mention my name?
Did you get sick of the shame?
Did you lay on your back?
Be honest;
Did you ever mention my name?
Did you get sick of the shame?
Did you lay on your back like a WHORE!?

    General CommentThis song is very obviously directed at his former bandmates in Chiodos. Not a former lover.

    General CommentI'm surprised at how blunt Craig is being about leaving Chiodos. I never really heard anything about the breakup, so I wasn't sure how hard it was. But the fact alone that they kicked him out almost right after his suicide attempt really displays how much they really weren't there for him.

    "Be honest
    Did you ever mention my name
    Did you get sick of the shame
    Did you lay on your back"

    I think this might be referring to their embarrassment of having Craig in the band (for some unknown reason), and their attempt to make him forgotten by continuing on with new members.

    Lyric CorrectionI don't know if you were listening to the same song... that chorus is pretty off. And some words are misspelled and just a bit different, I'll post my changes in the lyrics that I hear right here in full. I may be a little off, still:

    not treed. my dumb typos. haha


    I find this song pretty relate-able. There may very well be much more story to it, but it just sounds like a girl did him wrong... Just left him behind, hurt... and just shut him down. And he finds himself asking if she's even mentioned his name, felt shameful, or just laid on her back for other guys.

    Very awesome sound to it, I suggest blast it if you have the chance. The bass is pretty sweet in the verses.
