"Mourning" as written by Hugo Ferreira, Matt Taul, Jesse Vest and Todd Whitener....
Is there something that you are trying to say
Don't hold back now
It's been a long time since I felt this way
So don't hold back now

I purposely forgot about
Loving anyone
Cause I'm the only one who has
Who has been stepped upon

Is there something that you are trying to say
Cause I can take it
Cause I grew up a man this way
And if I'm hurt I'll shake it

I'll crawl back into my cave
That's how I'll make it
Cause out of all this hurt we have
Beauty thus become
Beauty thus become

[Chorus: x2]
In the mourning I can see the sights
No wonder I could never keep you satisfied
In the mourning I can see inside
Myself and all the things that you were trying to hide

Wishing all the best for you
And now I will say goodbye
Cause all the shit that we've been through
Put wisdom in my eyes

So walk away, don't turn around
Cause I won't be standing here
Cause all the lies that I've been living through
Are becoming very clear
And beauty thus become

[Chorus]

Then you conned me into thinking
That all I had was you
The small insinuations
Were cutting me through
Cutting me through

And now I stand alone here
Stronger than before
And I'll never go back
Never go back
Never go

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentTO me this song is about breaking up because you feel you have to, the love is there and you both really care for each other. There have been little things that have influenced them in the past and while they both have a strong feeling for love. To him it just doesn't feel the same as it once did. I think also that maybe she doesnt always show her feelings. To me the lines...
    "Wishing all the best for you
    And now I will say goodbye
    Cause all the shit that we've been through
    Put wisdom in my eyes

    So walk away, don't turn around
    Cause I won't be standing here
    Cause all the lies that I've been living through
    Are becoming very clear
    And beauty thus become "
    ... to me these lines mean alot to me, it reminds me of breaking up with a girl, knowing it hurts her and it hurts you just as much but you think that this will be the best for both of you in the end.

    Song MeaningI've read these lyrics over and over again and to me it seems as if the relationship was fake all along. The girl led him on to believe that she had feelings for him and that she was all about him and in doing that he fell for her.

    Then you conned me into thinking
    That all I had was you
    The small insinuations
    Were cutting me through
    Cutting me through

    It also seems he has been hurt before and he deals with it by hiding his emotions and cutting himself off from the world.

    Is there something that you are trying to say
    Don't hold back now
    It's been a long time since I felt this way
    So don't hold back now

    I purposely forgot about
    Loving anyone
    Cause I'm the only one who has
    Who has been stepped upon

    Is there something that you are trying to say
    Cause I can take it
    Cause I grew up a man this way
    And if I'm hurt I'll shake it

    I'll crawl back into my cave
    That's how I'll make it
    Cause out of all this hurt we have
    Beauty thus become
    Beauty thus become

    Then he realized that she never really cared to begin with and he was used and he had to say goodbye. It also seems as though he's not mad but grew stronger and smarter from the experience.

    Wishing all the best for you
    And now I will say goodbye
    Cause all the shit that we've been through
    Put wisdom in my eyes

    So walk away, don't turn around
    Cause I won't be standing here
    Cause all the lies that I've been living through
    Are becoming very clear
    And beauty thus become

    And now I stand alone here
    Stronger than before
    And I'll never go back
    Never go back
    Never go

    I could be wrong but it makes since to me...

    General CommentThis song is supposedly Tantric's last song ever...It sounds to me like the singer is dealing with a breakup with a girlfriend, but it could also be interpreted as dealing with the breakup of the band...whatever floats your boat =)

    General CommentThis song is amazing and I certainly hope the band is not breaking up.. Especially since they are supposedly touring with Creed. I think moreso than a break up.. He's dealing with the fact that he blamed himself.... And then realized that it wasn't just his fault for losing what they had.. Now THAT is something that EVERYONE can relate to.

    General CommentUhm, no, Tantric isn't breaking up. As to the song meaning: From the Tantric website, the song is about realizing a relationship simply won't work, even though the love is there.

    General CommentIt might be about a relationship that wont work even though the love is there. But i think it is talking about a relationship where only one of them is in love..and the other doesnt feel the same way and doesnt know how to break it to the guy/girl.

    General CommentI think this song is deffinatly one of the best I've ever heard. What first drew me to the song was not the lyrics, however. It was the music. I think that they really sound great with the music/notes/ect and I also think the dynamics are great. They really did a good job of expressing themselves in this song.

    General CommentIt means different things to different people, depending on your experinces and the way u live your life. I believe that its about a relationship between two people or a group of people. It apears to me like the writer is feeling the same thing as the other person in the relationship, but does not want to edmidt it. I believe he is trying to say that if the relationship is no more, then he will hide his feelings and he will "craw back in my cave" and shake his pain off, make it seem like it does not matter what happens to him.
