"Shoula Coulda Woulda" as written by and Jerry Portnoy....
Hangin' on a flag pole
Lookin' like a freak show
Everyone of us has done it

Jumpin' into sinkin' sand
Tryin' to forget it
Blamin' someone else
"They made me do it"

Shedding every ounce of faith
Sucking every cell away
Caving into every impulse

Stuck inside this lonely face
Hiding every scar (and) stain
Busted in a Tarantino movie

Shoulda, coulda, woulda, shut up
I wished I kept my mouth shut
'Cause I can't change anything I did
Every secret that I hide
Keeps me locked up deep inside

Starin' at the future
Draggin' every footstep
Maybe there's another way out
Tell me there's another place
Tell me there's another day
Tell me there's another way out

Shoulda, coulda, woulda, shut up
I wished I kept my mouth shut
'Cause I can't change anything I did
Every secret that I hide
Keeps me locked up deep inside

Wanna reach back

I'll start in the center
I'll work in a mirror
Want somethin' for lust
I'll run from the lust
I'll wake in the mornin'
Walk in the sunlight
Never again, no regrets
Nothin' to make me say I

Shoulda, coulda, woulda, shut up
I wished I kept my mouth shut
'Cause I can't change anything I did
Every secret that I hide
Keeps me locked up deep inside

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a person reflecting on the life and regretting decisions, then coming to terms and wanting to become a better person. Really great song from Flying Colors. <3 Mike Portnoy
