"Country Song" as written by and Troy William Mclawhorn Dale William Stewart....
Well I can't stand to look at you now
This revelation's out of my hands
Still I can't bear the thought of you now
This complication's leaving me scared

Stay when you think you want me
Pray when you need advice
Hey keep your sickness off me tryin to get through
Blame all your weakness on me
Shame that I'm so contrite
Hey keep your fingers off me, why can't I get through?

You think you have the best of intentions
I cannot shake the taste of blood in my mouth

(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) all done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me, save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
You've got me thinking that the party's all over

Well I can't stand to be with myself
This liberation's seemingly rare
And I can't stand the taste of your mouth
This sublimation's out of my hands

You stay 'cause you think you want me
Pray when you need advice
Hey keep your sickness off me I'm tryin to get through
Shame you cant take this from me
Bane on the empty mind
Hey keep your fingers off me, why can't I get through?

(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) all done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me, save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
You've got me thinking that the party's all over

Lay down
Just stay down
Lay down because I am trying to get through

Say what you want but you're not gonna win this time
Take what you want, but just leave me alive
Say what you want but you're not gonna win this time
Take what you want, but just leave me alive

(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) all done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me, save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
Still you believe that we can start it all over

Lay down
Just stay down
Lay down because the party's all over

Lay down
Just stay down
Lay down because I am trying to get through

    General CommentFirst Comment! I love the new song think its great Seether are experimenting with new material. I think the song is about a past love that keeps coming back to Shaun (lead singer) or won't leave him alone or maybe vice versa. It could mean he's over her and is back on his feet stronger than ever showing that he's not giving up. The ex girlfriend could be trying to change who he is completely making him someone he doesn't want to be. I think I read on Wikipedia that the song is a tribute to Nashville (where they recorded their current album). Thats all i can make of the song right now, loving the song and really looking forward to the new album and many new songs and albums in the future

    General CommentThis song is about someone trying to "fix" you in an unwanted way. The narrator of this song is dealing a person who thinks there is something wrong with them and that they need changing. Shaun just wants this person to leave him alone though.

    And every time time he think's he's gotten rid of his problem, his mental abuser comes back for another round. He doesn't want to change, at least not in the way this person wants to change him. The things this person are saying to him are really screwing with his head and causing him to doubt everything about himself, and all he wants is to get his security back.

    My OpinionI can't help but think most all of Seether's songs are about a relationship with a narcissist.. I just got out of a relationship with a narcissist and upon listening to these lyrics closer, they all resonate with me. Fur Cue, Words as Weapons, No Resolution, Here and Now, Yeah, Country Song... It's strange how they all seem like he's reflecting on his relationship with a narcissist.. There could be more songs, I don't know. I'm just now really listening to these lyrics... Even more eery, is that I never listed to Seether until my ex-Narc downloaded them onto my itunes.... Anyone else hear this???
