"Speak in Rounds" as written by Christopher Robert Bear, Daniel Raphael Rossen, Christopher M. Taylor and Edward Droste....
If I draw you upside down I can let go
Leaves my mind at ease gives me something to focus on
Could I be alone?
Could I be alone?

If I speak in rounds for a while letting my tongue swell
I'll be sure to try and explain myself to dispel
Blame it on the day
Blame it on the day

Step down, just once learn how to be alone
Step down, just once learn how to be alone
Come get what's lost, what's left before it's gone

But what makes each step worth the time and regret still shows
In the cradle of my unruly chest you belong
Take it as it is
Make another fist

Step down, just once learn how to be alone
Step down, just once learn how to be alone
Come get what's lost, what's left before it's gone

    General CommentI got this album as a gift shortly before entering rehab. It was in my car's CD player for almost that whole winter. I listened to it through on the way there and back. Every time I hear it it's complete emotional recall in great ways, bad ways, but mostly just a neutral feeling of calm and concerted thinking. This song in particular, for me anyway, applied to the inner conflict between the person I wanted to become and the 4 years of drugs, alcohol, debauchery, my setting, the people, my M.O., my schedule, all of it. It felt like i was breaking up with a close companion and kicking him out of the driver's seat. I learned a lot, some of it was regrettable (you hit the nail on the head previous commenters. I was speaking in rounds with myself weighing the pros and cons, debating life change. Come get what's lost, what's left before it's gone (my previously healthy, optimistic, sensible, loving self). More often whenever I feel conflicted I should give this song a listen.
