"Familiar" as written by Brandon Charles Boyd, Alex Katunich, Michael Aaron Einziger, Gavin Koppel, Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii and Andreas P Stevens....
Where’d my heroes go?
Did they change or did I?
Man it gets me, gets me every time
The punch is spiked and I wanna keep the lights on

This place is so familiar
Your face is so familiar
This place is so
Your face is so so familiar

I miss them golden days
I could trust not fight
Now it hits me right between the eyes, ah huh
Familiar faces, rallying round a lie… oh oh oh

This place is so familiar
Your face is so familiar
This place is so and your face is so
It’s so familiar

Here we go wild
It’s time for you to come out of hibernation
Here we go wild
It’s time for you to come out of hibernation
Rumours gone wild
It’s time for us to come out of hibernation
Rumours gone wild
It’s time for us to come out of hibernation

This place is so familiar
Your face is so familiar
This place is so
Your face is so

How many tries before we get it right?
Yeah, right
Get it right
Yeah oh

    General Commentim fairly sure the first verse lyrics are;
    "could there be a familiar ring,
    everytime i sing about,
    a cycle which is everything in life,
    no doubt i re-iterate til my jaw is offset,
    but i'll say it again anyway,
    what you give is what you get."

    can someone fix it?

    General CommentI think this song is about the frustration of a guy whose old girlfriend who has hurt him much in the past is trying to get back with him. So he is basically saying "Look at you now..without me...you;re smacked in the face..just like you smacked me in the face before..." As if His rejecting her is so familiar to when she rejected him. Its just vise-versa in the situation now

    General CommentThis is very different to the Incubus sound, I think it's an early one isn't it from the Spawn soundtrack...
    I love this song though, just because it shows just how good a vocalist Brandon is.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. Brandon's voice rocks on this. Its obvious what its about, u get what u give, what goes around comes around, all that. Like Circles.

    General CommentI think this song is about a friend who was into drugs,hence "all medicine,all medicine" and when his friend came back begging for help he was "smacked in the face,smacked in the face again" and he was begging for forgiveness "brother let your knees bleed" this is one of Incubus' greatest songs,and I wasn't a big Spawn fan either

    General CommentThe song is different from the Incubus sound because it was remixed by DJ Greyboy for the Spawn Soundtrack. I've never heard the original, I don't know if a recording even exists.

    General Commentim fairly sure this song is about alcohol or drugs (familiar medicine abound on your breath), and whoever the person maybe is getting back what they gave, and is now pitiful, because they are using drugs to escape their reality. however, since incubus in the old days (when they were actually cool) were completely drug fucked anyway (i mean, "fungus amongus"?), im not entirely convinced it isnt autobiographical.
