This is getting old
and so are you.
Everything you know
and never knew.
Will run through your fingers
just like sand.

Enjoy it while you can.

Like a snake between two stones
it itches in your bones.
Take a deep breath and swallow
your sorrow
tomorrow.

So raise it up and lets propose a toast.
To the thing that hurts you most.

It's your last cup of sorrow.
What can you say?
Finish it today.
It's your last cup of sorrow.
So think of me
and get on your way.

It won't begin
until you make it end.
Until you know the how the where and the when.
With a new face you might surprise yourself.

Like a snake between two stones
it itches in your bones.
take a deeper breath and swallow
your sorrow
tomorrow.

So raise it up and lets propose a toast.
To the thing that hurts you most.

It's your last cup of sorrow.
what can you say?
Finish it today.
It's your last cup of sorrow.
So think of me
and get on your way!

You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself

    General Commenti definitely think this is about dealing with a bad situation, acknowledging it, as well as the process of getting over it, then moving on. It points out that if you dont bring yourself to let go, youll continue to be stuck in an emotional rut over it until you learn to finally face it. very cool song.

    General CommentWhat an awesome song.
    Could be about somebody whose loved one has died and they are questioning the nature of death and fearing their own mortality...?

    General CommentThis song is obviously about letting go of something hurt you in the past which you are still dwelling on. In my case it was the loss of love and the sorrow and depression that have gone along with it. Every single lyric in the song is basically telling you to start to get over it, and move on with your life. Propose a toast to the thing that hurts you most, and swallow it. Becasue you never know........you might surprise yourself.

    General CommentI always kind of thought this song was about the break up of Faith No More. "this is getting old and so are you", Patton wants to move on to his side projects because he's bored with FNM. And maybe he's saying good bye to the rest of the band and that they can make it without him i.e. "You might surprise yourself".

    General CommentOnee of my favourate songs by any band

    jon hudson brought about a big cchange in FNM IMO, he seems like more of a rythmn guitarist than a lead, the old overdrive pedal of jim martin was out and more slick metal style riffs came in.
