Everytime I hear your name,
It bears an uncanny resemblance to defeat.
I never want to touch base,
Because it's hard to face
The things we've been.
I don't remember the precious things,
Remember the ways you showed your worth.
All of this breathing in,
And never breathing out...

When you feel the pull,
It'll bring down to where I go,
And that's what I know of life,
'Cause it was all I was shown.
What I know now,
I could never go back to you.
Disconnect and disconnect,
And disconnect...

The heart attack,
It comes right back,
Right where we left off.
I point the gun too much, yeah.
Fuck, you're such an easy target.
I couldn't carry a Goddamn thing,
But you, but you gave it anyway.
Half-flattered you believed in me,
Half-sorry you made a mistake.

When you feel that pull,
It'll bring down to where I go,
And that's what I know of life,
'Cause it was all I was shown.
What I know now,
I could never go back to you.
Disconnect and disconnect
And disconnect...

Hope it's cold in your room,
And let the warmth lure you home.
Hope it's cold in your room,
And like a magnet, will lead you home...

And when you feel that pull,
It'll bring down to where I go,
And that's what I know of life,
'Cause it was all I was shown.
What I know now,
I could never go back to you.
Disconnect and disconnect
And disconnect...
What I know now,
I could never go back to you.
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...
Disconnect and disconnect...

    General CommentThis song is about a breakup and its reprecussions. He didn't think of the relationship as a team, but more as a competition. he was always paranoid, and trying to be "on top" of the relationship. when she broke up with him, he felt defeated. he doesn't even want to be friends with her now because he knows how much they both cared for eachother and it would hurt to even see her face. All he really remembers from the relationship is the pain and the struggle, but not all the fun and love that they shared. every once and a while he feels the pain of his loss, but he doesn't want to admit that it was him that screwed things up, so he's always blaming her for everything. it makes him happy that she believed in him and kept trying to work things out, but sad that she did it and that he hurt her. but this is the way that he's always handled things. he just wants to disconnect; from her, from love, from relationships in general. a pretty sad song actually.

    General CommentI used to like Osker in high school but now that I'm a little older I have fallen a bit out of tune with them. I think that they are more for adolescents. If I were the lead singer (I don't even know his name) I probably would of pulled the plug on this band too. But then again I don't see how it helped him any. Does he have a new band?
