I can see it in your eyes, i can hear it in your voice.
The signs are obvious that all we had has run its course.
I don't mind giving up the upper hand in this little charade cuz
I've spent too many nights here on the floor waiting for something inside you to change.
Don't look back in anger that's all that you can see.
Cuz anger's all I got to keep me warm when you're away and
I know that this is nothing new but tonight is all i know.
Disconnect myself from your memory and never feel anything at all.
To justify with all your words don't mean anything to me cuz
I've cut you off so here we stand and face each other we've got nothing to say.
A flashback to another time when silence was a welcome friend.
Now I'm sorry I can never really say all the things going on inside my head.
Silence is a justified expression of my war now.
Nothing's like it was before don't look back in anger.
Now is that all that you can say?
Cuz anger's all i got to keep me warm when you're away and all your words and all our actions don't mean anything to me cuz I've got you off.
Don't look back in anger, don't look back in anger, don't look back in anger, it's just a memory and it's easy to forget your face and it's easy to survive in this place without you, without you
I just comb my hair and wash my face. keep straight ahead and keep my pace don't think about nothing I might never be alright.
Well i got my friends I got my pen. I got a million distractions to keep me warm and all I know is that i'll be alright. i'll be alright

    General Commentthis is one of strung out's best songs in my opinion. it's an anthem for those who have waited and tried for another to decide wether or not to grasp the opportunity of relationship that could work with a little effort from the other side. A person can only go so far before they give up on a hope like this, especially when they are pulled in every direction by the significant other, not knowing the truth. The line "Now I'm sorry I can never really say all the things going on inside my head." is one that anyone can relate to in situations that they've deeply cared about and didn't want to ruin. I'm just an 19 year old boy so what do I know. Thats what I think. The guitar and drums on this track are very intense, they couldnt be better. Vocals fit the music PERFECTLY. Like an orange in an orange peel. With a song like this, I could go crazy to the music and the power of the vocals, or sit and think about the lyrics. Great physical and emotional encouragement.
