"Weapin & The Wound" as written by and Travis Shane Meeks....
I won't break this, it took so long to make this
The life I lead is getting through to me
I won't take this, took so long to get rid of this
Anything is everything to me

What a step in time

Running after you
I don't know where you are
And I can't seem to get you
I want you to know me, yeah

The pain that greets me is a stick that beats me
Solid dream, hope isn't what it seems
Words I can't miss is a song that sings you
Missing friend, tomorrow is the end

What a step in time
Find my place in life

Running after you
I don't know where you are
And I can't seem to get you
I want you to know me

Running after you
I don't know where you are
And I can't seem to get you
I want you to know me yeah, alright

Anything is everything to me
Anything is everything to me, yeah yeah

Running after you
I don't know where you are
And I can't seem to get you
I want you to know me

Running after you
I don't know where you are
And I can't seem to get you
I want you to know me, yeah

Don't know where you are
I want you to know me

    General CommentI heard Travis Meeks in an interview and he said that this part:

    Running after you
    I don't know where you are
    And I can't seem to catch you
    I want you to know me

    Was about a sibling that he was trying to locate. He denied that it was about a chick or any kind of love relationship. I don't know what brothers and sisters he has. I do know his home life growing up wasn't good and he went back and forth between his grandmother and his Dad. I don't know where his mother was. It would make sense then that he could have siblings he'd like to meet.

    I hope he gets it all together. He is an amazing musician and songwriter and singer all rolled into one! What a sound and the depth to his lyrics blow my mind! I haven't been this excited about a new band since I was in 7th grade and Led Zep came to town! Yeah, I'm old!

    General CommentThis is my favorite tune of all time. I never, ever believed that I could like a song with a clarinet and this may be the haunting tune with such an instrument. It goes to show that musical talent knows no genre limit. This is probably one of the most depressing tunes of all time as well. Still a classic in my mind.

    General Commentsuprisingly enough... this was the song that made me fall in love with dotn. it gives a sort of unsettling feeling. i always thought of it as a way of saying that he was chasing something better and trying to change things... you know kind of personal and such. however, i had never heard the "missing sibling" thing. that sounds like a good reason to write this song... and the title is spelled wrong. and uh... yeah clarinets rock so hard!

    General CommentI'm pretty sure Travis was thinking of his daughter when he wrote this song. Travis was extremely young when he had a little girl. Not sure what his relationship has been with his daughter due to her mother and him not getting along.

    Song MeaningI have known Travis for years, I asked him what this song was about, he said it was about his daughter, he has tried to be a part of her life, he says "I want you to know me" and anything is everything to me" some kids are like weapons that one parent uses to hurt the other parent.
