do you want me to strip for you?

everybody played a game, how come you won't tell me the rules?
i'm tired of trying on new skin, i never listen; i'm a fool.
and everybody ran away, how come you won't tell me where?
i guess i treated them too wrong.
now the sun don't shine on me, now the rain won't even fall.

could of stripped her down, and made the world a mess for her,
never thought she could be this way,
should of stripped her down, and ripped the world from under her,
never thought she could be this way.
should've stripped her down

now that the love has gone away, too blind to see my way to live,
i waste away from all the pain, for you i'd kill myself again,
i hope you get to play your games, i hope you get to see your friends,
i hope the guilt mixes the pain, i hope you'll never love again.
take it off...

    General Comment"About one of my band members that had problems with his girlfriend...and that got me pissed off because when people around me get hurt, I get depressed as well. I was really upset, and I just went crazy. Nothing that happend to me...but it happens to everyone, at least one time you have some bad shit going down with some crazy bitch...it happens to everybody; it happens to girls too with guys. It's just a song about being fucked over by some person."~Scooter Ward

    General CommentYou'd think that because he can write such beautiful lyrics, he'd be able to speak a little nit more intelligently ;)

    General CommentAwww...c'mon...give him a break. A lot of people are nervous when being interviewed and such. I am very gratefull that when the cameras and microphones are off, COLD, as a band, can write some of the most emotional and affecting music I have ever heard. LONG LIVE COLD!

    General CommentI dont think he talks unintelligently. Just cuz the explanation of a song isnt as good as you think doesnt mean its bad. All he said was what it about, plain and simple. And the way they get that across in the song is fucking extraordinary...

    General Commentok...here's what i think....i don't think he should even explain what it's about...i mean c'mon guys... he wrote the song... the song itself says what it's about.... He really don't care about interviews and such, that's why cold hasn't gotten famous... but lately i've seen them more on MTV and shit and especially with their new song "gone away" being on wwf tough enough... i know for sure cold is gonna get more attention... I'd rather hear and enjoy the music... who really cares about publicity and media..????
