"You" as written by Michael Perretta and C.e. Martin....
I never know

I never care

I never believe my people

I'll tell you what I say

I never lie

I never try

I never cry for you people

I'll push you

Push you away

As you lonely people

Keep on running around my door

Yes you lonely people

Keep on begging

Beg for more

And I'll cry for you

Yes I'll die for you

Pain in my heart it is real

And I'll tell you now how I feel inside

Feel in my heart it's for you

I'll never try

I'll never die

I'll never push for you people

I'll tell you how I feel

I'll never lie

I'll never cry

I'll never try for you people

I'll tell you, yes it's real

And you lonely poeple

Keep on passing time away

Yes you lonely people keep on passin,

Pass away

And I'll cry for you

Yes I'll die for you

Pain in my heart it is real

And I'll tell you now how I feel inside

Feel in my heart it's for you

And I'll take everything

As it comes my way

Pushin' your pain around my door

And I cry for you yes I die for you

Is this blood on my hands all for you

You shiver

You shudder

Recovers your mother

You feel it take all alone

Come around town

Steal another dime

Take another line

Won't you feel it

Blanket your soul

Out of mind

Come around town

Steal another dime

Do another crime

Won't you get it higher & higher

All through time

Come around town

Steal another dime

Don't you push your drugs in my face

Yes, I'm feeling fine

Feelin' fine

Don't you push drugs in my face

Or I'm gonna put you in your place

Fuck you

I don't want it no more

And It's mine, this pain in my heart is all mine

Yes it's mine all alone

As I cry for you

Yes I'll die for you

Pain in my heart it is real

And I'll take everything

As it comes my way

Feel in my heart it's for you

And I'll lie for you as I die for you

Pain in my heart it is real

And I'll tell you now

How I feel inside

Fuck you

It's for you

    General Commentthis song kicks ass plain and simple. the music and lyrics are both awesome; i love how he constructed the lyrics in a way where there are obvious struggles...with drugs, loved ones, and himself; he wants to rid himself of his old life, but at the same time still loves his friends, hence: "i'll never cry for you" and then "i'll cry for you" - the song is very human, very raw, very emotional; my favorite part is after the guitar solo when he screams: "i don't want it no more!!" the one guitar part during that line gives me chills too...it really adds to the effect of the song; kudos to the entire band

    General CommentThe drug part of the song is obvious... it is the perspective that is interesting.

    You = the world.
    I = that which resides in the heart
    Door = your heart, so open it.

    General Comment^ Actually, Candlebox were doin their own thing. Nobody talks about them and they're not exactly grunge. They were a bit softer than Soundgarden, what a bland, blind, ignorant statement.

    he's obviously talking about himself dealing with drugs and the effect others put on him as they still do them ..he's getting clean and they arent...its his heart his pain he'll deal with it his way (without) a drug addiction ....missery loves company and i (think) he's simply saying fuck off!!
    haha i could be sooo wrong ..but oh well ...its a thought :) ***cheesy grin***

    General CommentAnybody that has either gone through, or knows someone who has gone through rehab, could tell you this song is most definitely about the feelings and things addicts experience once they have quit.

    "You shiver you shudder, recovers your mother..."

    Is actually, "You shiver you shudder, recover is your mother. You feel it take control, All alone, Feel alive
    In your soul"

    It's all about accepting pain, not hiding from it any longer. It's about the honesty of reality, and living it rather than escaping it anymore. It's about getting pissed off at anything and anybody that would try to convince you that drugs and escape is a better and more fun way.

    It's about getting pissed not only at others around him bringing it around, but about getting pissed at yourself for ever wanting it to begin with.

    "Fuck you!" is simply the ultimate angry reaction to all of it.

    It's about survival.

    General CommentThe drug abuse and the pain that comes with it. It's too real. He doesn't want to be around by they follow him around and he loathes it

    General CommentI'm assuming this song is about drugs. i really have not much of a clue, i just love this song, Candlebox has a really good sound and style and their lyrics are very heartfelt. Its ashame they never really got mainstream.

    General Commentthis song is awesome. i take it to mean about drugs. it reminds me of my ex-boyfriend who was an addict to just about every drug immaginable. and it just really hurt me to see him wasting away like that. there's a limit to everything and he just didn't know where his limit was. this song really encompasses my feelings towards him when we were together. and it helped me get through the heartbreak. thanks candlebox.

    General CommentI THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT HIM TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM THE DRUGS AND EVERYONE AROUND HIM IS STILL DOING IT AND HOW HE LOVES/HATES DRUGS. HE DOESN'T WANT TO DO IT HE'S WATCHING HIS FRIENDS DIE. JUST MY THOUGHTS
