"Incomplete" as written by and Brett Gurewitz....
Mother, father, look at your little monster,
I'm a hero, I'm a zero,
I'm the butt of the worst joke in history,
I'm a lock without a key,
A city with no door, a prayer without faith,
A show without a score,
I'm a bad word, a wink, a nod, a shiver,
An untold story, sex without fury,
A creeping gray memory,
I am incomplete, incomplete, incomplete, incomplete

Doctor, cure me, what is the cause of my condition,
This madness shoots me,
Like bullets smashing glass in a silent movie,
I'm a trap without a spring,
A temple with no god,
A jack without an ace,
The tip of your tongue,
I'm a promise, an unmailed letter,
An unbuilt motor, deck without a joker,
A creeping gray memory
I am incomplete, incomplete, incomplete, incomplete

Tell Saint Peter not to bet on me,
I got a naked obsession,
A good intention gone bad,
I am incomplete, incomplete, incomplete, incomplete

    General CommentI think this song is about how he just feels...well, incomplete. Like there is something missing, and he can't quite pin down what it is, so he can only give all these examples of what it is like.

    General CommentI really like this song because it talks about how he feels in a serious and mature way. He manages to discuss his emotions without being all emo about it, plus, you gotta love the imagery, i mean "like bullets smashing glass in silent movie" is just plain cool

    General CommentNo no no!! It's most definitely "fury". Makes much better sense. Hmmm.. I don't think there's purity in sex in any case. haha... that's just ridiculous. Sex without fury DOES make sense.
