It takes you in and tears it all out
It tears it all out
But you'd never know
It takes your life
Turns you into someone
And you know it won't be long
Someone you'd never know

Don't claim that you know me
When you know very well
That I have seen through it all
Don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you've seen things
For what they are

Inside you feel it taking over
It's taking over
When you feel it most
It draws you it and tears it away
It tears it away
And it leaves you lost

Don't claim that you know me
When you know very well
That I have seen through it all
And don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you see things
For what they are

(For what they are, oh oh)

(Oh, oh)

(For what they are)

Remember the days when our fears had long since died
And now how they age us, they take in all our lives
Our lives

It takes you in and tears it all out
Tears it all out
But you'd never know
It takes your life
Turns you into someone
And you know it won't be long
Someone you'd never know

Don't claim that you know me
When you know very well
That I have seen through it all
Don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you've seen things for what they are

Sore again is this old wound
It overshadows everything
And I have seen through it all
Ahhh yeahh..
Oh the things I've seen

    General CommentThis song is about taking confidence on people who are taking care of musicians and their carreer as well as their personal life and having those people completely turning their back on them and "The Things I've seen" is just another thing, putting up those walls, you become jaded when you have yourself gone through those things and witness what happens to many other people. It has to do with the music business itself and everybody wants to be in this business but it is tough
