"Chalk White" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow, Thomas Noonan and Mick Whitney....
Pieces of you, spread all over, torn in two
Forward/backward

Save yourself, from nothing, from no one
Forward/backward

You better get yourself out of it
You better get yourself out of it

You think you're right but it ain't right
You think it's right but it ain't right

Cease the slide, use the talent God gave you
Forward/backward

You better get yourself out of it
You better get yourself out of it

You think you're right, but it ain't right
You think it's right, but it ain't right

Forward/backward
Forward/backward

    General CommentI can relate so much to these lyrics.. I think everyone goes through a phase where they're unsure of what they want to do in the future in a bad situation that they're put themselves in. When the lyrics refer to a 'you' i'm thinking it has if it's what his mind is telling him.

    The whole song talks about someone who is messed up, who is in pieces after doing something wrong.. and this person knows that he has done something wrong, deliberately. He probably feels useless and everything, but knows that he has something to contribute to the world...he just needs to get out of his bad situation. It's a good song, really uplifting.

    General CommentForward/Backward, you better get yourself out of it.

    You take two steps forward and two steps back, and you should get yourself somewhere other than staying in the middle.
