Deep inside I tried to find a purpose for me no surprise.
I’ve pushed myself away.
Sometimes I refuse to think and sometimes I just need a break.
Leave myself a lone today.
Sit and drink the air.
And stop to let out all the hurt.
Collapse inside your arms.
I never want to let this go.
I’m not in tune with anything.
If I go on like this I’ll scream ‘til I go mute.
And people who cant speak don’t have to answer for themselves.
I’ll scream this one for you.
I know what failure is.
I understood it all along.
Salvation was a gift,
but someone wrapped it wrong.
Life has a funny was of leading you on,
letting you down.
Deep inside I try to find a purpose for me no surprise.
Please leave me alone.

    General CommentJosh Kemble said before in an interview that this song was written to Matt Aragon because he was helping the group cope with the breaking up issues.

    O'Donnell (the guitarist that left after this CD was made) actually wrote this song. He was having problems balancing the band with his own personal life. He admits to refusing to write music, and wanting to take a break sometime.

    "Sometimes I refuse to think and sometimes I just need a break."

    I was a singer in a band, and it was hard work. The band went far, but I felt the same exact way, I needed a break, the pressures of band life is overwhelming, so I completely understand this song.

    Also check out "Juice" and "Point Counterpont" from the Matt Aragon CD, they have a lot to do with the same situation.

    General Commentthis song means a lot to me. i know matt aragon and i care so much for him. everything the dogwoods say about him in the cd is nothing but true. matt has an awesome personality he shares with everyone. he's helped me through so many things it's not even funny. matt cares so much about the people around him and their safety and comfort. he has a big heart and i believe i would not be here today if it weren't for him and all he has offered me...he is a blessing in my life and i am convinced he is my gardiun angel...without wings
