"Angry" as written by and Rob Thomas....
So scream you, out from behind the bitter ache
Heavy on the memory, you need most
Still want love, ugly, smooth and delicate
Not without affection, not alone

And instead of wishing that it would get better
Man you're seeing that you just get angrier

And it's good that I'm not angry
I just need to get over
I'm not angry, anymore

Cry when you cry, run when you run
Love when you love
Represent the ashes
That you leave behind

And instead of wishing that the road had shoulder
Man you're seeing that you're sinking over time

And it's good that I'm not angry
I just need to get over
I'm not angry
It's dragging me under
I'm not angry

I'm not angry it's never been enough
It gets inside and it tears you up
I'm not angry but I've never been above it
You see through me don't you

And it's good that I'm not angry
I just need to get over
I'm not angry
It's dragging me under
I'm not angry

And it's good that I'm not angry
I just need to get over
I'm not angry, anymore

    General CommentOf course he's lying:

    "you see through me, don't you?"

    Who wants to be with someone who's angry all the time? When you're alone you'll do anything not to be alone, especially pretending everything's okay and not giving into the anger you feel every moment of every day. If you do, you'll remain alone. It's such a catch-22.

    As a side, isn't it funny how someone else can convince you that your emotions are silly and everything you feel in your own heart is a lie?

    General CommentInteresting view, dadidcoyote. I love how they open their cds, but I never quite got this one, you can't see a clear meaning behind, but there must be one, like in every MB20's song.

    General CommentI sort of agree with Davidcoyote. I think it's about someone who tries not to be angry. tries to beat his aggression for his own sake but he is not always successful.

    “This was kind of me being sarcastic with the whole anger thing, and I’m trying to pat myself on the back about being a bigger man when I’m really not. It’s me fighting with myself.”
