I come around but I dont see ya
its kinda hard when your already gone
my eyes are numb
bloodshot and heavy
the voices silent but approaching me soon
hes got your name
hes got your number
just one more slip and he'll be dragging you on
I feel the pain
oh I see the answer
the voices ring out like the siren of song

youre gone when you stop believing
when its hard to sleep at the end of the day
move on, dont try to get even
looking hard just to find a new end
cause its hard to die
when your already dead

just when cant quite remember
just when I can't quite recall
the day we met upon a cold december
the day we met and it started to fall

    General CommentA complex song by my favorite Ska band, the lyrics start off witha descritption closer to a Ruphalized date rape that ends with the descimation of personal defenses because of love. I starting liking this song because of the sound and the last line, "it's hard to die when you're already dead." The song rememinds me of those times when I feel like my life is falling down.

    General Commenti like this one because it's so obvious............"it's hard to die when you're already dead" it just sounds good when you feel like everyone looks way too close at things..........over analyzation

    General Commenti think the "he's got your name, he's got your number" is more about the devil (anyone seen Blood Brothers? haha)
    I'm not too sure about the date rape theme, i think there'd be a bigger deal about it. I reckon it's just about some guy who's feeling really down and worthless /alcoholic/ loser.

    General CommentI looooove this song. Mainly for the horns and just the feel of the music and that line that everyone else already mentioned so I won't bother to repeat.

    Interesting take on the date rape idea-- never thought of it that way before, but it seems to make sense...

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has hit rock bottom, they cant go any lower and are "already dead". They stopped beliving in themselves also. And I think the Satan having the name and number think is right madcaddie0 and hes saying if you fuck up one more time, your done for.
