"Hide" as written by and J. Mascias....
You know it hurts me
To see those people hangin' 'round you all the time
What about someday?
To know you're laughin' there is messin' with my mind
Damage setting in
Tell me where you been
Try not to ask again
Break(Flake?) outs I can't defend
Twisted messages I send
I walk over and we smile and all get set
Where we take you
Is where I wake you
It's a vice that's feelin' tight around my head
I can't brace it
Still can't waste it
It's kind of useless
To tell you everything that needs doing today
I'd be confused with
If you'd just grab me your way, then be on your way
I can't let it go
Starting to really show
Don't you think I've tried?
Don't you want it inside?
What could be left to hide?

You know it hurts me
To see those people hangin' 'round you all the time
It sure seems lonesome
But you're still hang with them, it's messin' with my mind
You can't expect much
Not so out of touch
If I ask again
Nothing I'll defend
But I can pretend
I walked over and we smile and all the rest
Where we take you
Is where I wake you
It's a two ton weight that's wrapped around my chest
I just knew it
Can't get through it
And now it's finally just inches from my eye
I can't place it
Still can't waste it
When you stomp on the last thing I've left to try
Is where I wake you

    General Commentgod, I know, exact same for me

    every song on where you been hits exactly on what is going on for me right now
    it's almost scary
    but amazing, amazing music
