"Stress" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
You think your head's achin', I'm not finished yet
I won't be mistaken, how soon you forget
Take back what you said and I'll spare you pain
Then you can spare me all your fuckin' lies
I can't wait to get away
I ask you twenty more times,
Don't you hear a thing?
Your testing my patience again,
Careful for your sake
Take a walk with me there, and I'll show you pain
But who said you can open up your mouth
I can't wait to get away
Thoughts are pissed away
And for a minute I couldn't swallow
Thoughts are pissed away
And for a minute I couldn't swallow
If you think that I'm the one who'll be here
Come tomorrow think again
In time I'll be here, Not waiting for you anymore
I love you anyway, is it so rare that I've been
Sleeping with the dead

    General CommentIn the middle of the song he whispers something that isn't in the lyric sheet, I think it was improvised. It sounds something like,

    "Sometimes I feel like I need to get away.
    Just to be by myself all alone.
    I just lay down in the backyard and
    watch the leaves fall down on my face.
    It helps me become sane again."

    Leaves falling on his face might sound a little weird but that's my best guess.

    General CommentIn the original CD booklet, the lyrics aren't "think again" but actually "you took me in.."

    When they used to perform this live, Sully would sing "think again" and not "you took me in" Either way, this song has constantly been on spin cycle in sad times for me when I need to just let the hatred out, I put this on.
    Godsmack IV life.
