And I, I search for something more Before it mattered who you knew And I, I search for something pure Before the knot became the noose Theres no disguise behind these eyes I'm still alive watching you die And as I slowly walk away I hear you say - I never change. And I , I always hoped for more Before this knot came loose And now I seek out something pure Before the knot became the noose In the rearview mirror before the knot became noose Horizon of burning bridges before the knot became noose The knot became the noose

    General CommentLemme tell everyone who doesn't like MPB that they put on the CRAZIEST live show I've seen in some time! I saw them on the 23rd and I'm still recovering from the pit! It was straight insanity! I LOVE THIS BAND, and this song is THE BEST!

    General CommentI think end of the song sums it all:

    The knot became the noose

    You tie a knot between you and the other person you are close to - meaning, you're together (in any way - love or friendship). If things go sour between you and that person, the knot actually becomes the noose (as in, killing you).
    That's what this song's about - a person you were once close is now against you.
