Here comes the sadness that I miss so much
That lonely aching comes from every touch
I've grown accustomed to the grays and blacks
Because they're always coming back
Sit down for supper, won't you dine with me
Or can't you handle seeing all I see
I've grown to colorblind to cease my bitching
And I've grown to love the pain
And I move too slow and I think too fast and the first rainbow I see will be the last.
Here comes a view I've seen a million times
Here comes a boring song with thoughtless rhymes
I know you're sick of me so tell me here
Because you could have be the one
To make it all disappear.

    General Commentthis song is serious and emotional. but i dont think its about relationships. i think its about slipping in and out of depression over and over again. "here comes the sadness that i miss so much" meaning hes becoming depressed again. And the rainbows that he cant see represent that he cant remember anymore what its like to be happy. But theres one person who instigates this sadness, and that person is the only one who can stop it "because you could have been the one, to make it all disappear" meaning that person is the only one who can fix it

    anyway great say anything song, i seem to enjoy baseball and all their earlier demos more than their new stuff, not saying that IDOTG wasnt a great cd, it was but i like their old stuff more

    General Commenti think this about being in a relationship that is supposed to make you happier but just brings you down instead. getting stuck in the routine of a relationship that isn't going anywhere

    General Commenti think its about learning to cope with the pain of one failed relationship after another to the point of wanting the familiarity of loneliness:
    Here comes the sadness that I miss so much
    That lonely aching comes from every touch
    I’ve grown accustomed to the grays and blacks
    Because they’re always coming back

    And that you become "colorblind" to happiness because youre always surrounded by "grays and blacks". The rainbow symbolizes the colors that he's not seeing.

    But the main point of this I think is how, along with the loneliness and pain, hes always complaining to the people around him. After awhile they get sick of his constant "bitching" and dont want to be around him. He gets bitter thinking it is because they just can't handle true pain. Basically this whole message is throughout the song.

    GREAT SONG!!!!!
