"Amaryllis" as written by Brent Smith and Dave Bassett....
In a while now
I will feel better
Ill face the weather before me
In a while now ill race the irony
And by that each word of my eulogy

All the uninvited tragedies
Step outside

Ask yourself now
Where would you be without
Days like this
When you finally collide
With the moment you cant forget

So do I remind you of
Someone you never met
A lonely sillouette
And do I remind you of
Somewhere you wanna be
So pull at a leash is too far out of reach
Oh I wish you open up for me
'Cause I wanna know you
Amaryllis
Bloom

Stay a while now
Undress your colors
'Cause there like no other
Ive ever seen
I could get used to your company
Step inside

Ask yourself now
Where would you be without
Days like this
When you finally collide
With the moment you cant resist

So do I remind you of
Someone you never met
A lonely sillouette
And do I remind you of
Somewhere you wanna be
So pull out a leash
Oh I wish you open up for me
'Cause I wanna know you
Amaryllis

In a while now
I will feel better
I will be better

So do I remind you of
Someone you never met
A lonely sillouette
And do I remind you of
Somewhere you wanna be
So pull out a leash
Oh I wish you open up for me
'Cause I wanna know you
Amaryllis
Bloom
Amaryllis
Bloom
Amaryllis

    General CommentTo me it seems as though he is talking to himself.
    "So do I remind you of someone you've never met?" He is wishing it could return to a state of happiness he never had, "someone you've never met", but "in a while now, I will feel better". He is battling something difficult on the inside and he feels that he is finally ready for a change; for his flower to bloom. He wants to discover his true self. It's just my interpretation and it's a little different than the other ones listed so I thought I'd share :)

    My OpinionHow I interpret this song is a little different than expected haha. It's about losing yourself for a long time and then trying to find yourself. The silhouette is your the shadow of your former self. So it's just about going through hard times and losing yourself; then finding yourself. If that makes sense. It's the soul talking to it's vessel pretty much.

    General CommentProbably my favorite on Amaryllis, just an amazing song all around. The music, the lyrics, it's perfect. I really hope they release this as a single, it could easily be their biggest hit so far.

    Lyric CorrectionIn a while now I will feel better
    I'll face the weather before me
    In a while now I'll race the irony
    And buy back each word of my eulogy

    All the uninvited tragedies
    Step outside

    Ask yourself now, where would you be without
    Days like this
    When you finally collide
    With the moment you can't forget

    So do I remind you of
    Someone you've never met, a lonely silhouette
    And do I remind you of
    Somewhere you wanna be, so far out of reach

    Oh oh, I wish you'd open up for me
    'Cause I wanna know you
    Amaryllis
    Bloom

    Stay a while now, undress your colors
    'Cause they're like no others, I've ever seen
    I could get used to your company
    Step inside

    Ask yourself now, where would you be without
    Days like this
    When you finally collide
    With emotions you can't resist

    So do I remind you of
    Someone you've never met, a lonely silhouette
    And do I remind you of
    Somewhere you wanna be, so far out of reach

    Oh oh, I wish you'd open up for me
    'Cause I wanna know you
    Amaryllis

    In a while now I will feel better
    I will be better

    So do I remind you of
    Someone you've never met, a lonely silhouette
    And do I remind you of
    Somewhere you wanna be, so far out of reach

    Oh oh, I wish you'd open up for me
    'Cause I wanna know you
    Amaryllis
    Bloom

    Amaryllis
    Bloom

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about meeting someone new in yoru life and wanting them to open up, I take it as a song basically saying "You are amazing the way you are, and I'm here for you, you can come to me with anything, but first you have to open up for me"
    Brent is refering to the person as "Amaryllis" and telling this person to "bloom" or "open up"

    Just my thoughts though.. good song, at first I thought it couldn't get any better with Sounds of Madness, and then my brother bought this album and it is so much better! Rock on \m/

    My InterpretationFor me this song is about being in a situation that makes you feel unhappy and miserable but you know you will get out of it and have to hang on, even though a better situation seems so far out of reach, you have to face the weather before you, tell all the uninvited tragedies to step outside and someday you will feel better, someday you will be better.

    The reference Amaryllis can be the bulb (miserable situation where you want to hide from the world) and with good care it will bloom and show you her beautiful colours.

    The person you never met, the lonely silhouette for me is how you can change into someone you dont even recognize at times because of the situation.

    For me... being made redundant and losing the job I loved.

    Amazing song!
