I've got a feeling
With the wrong people
And I can't control my thoughts

I wish that I could sleep
And just get this over with
...this is only high-school bullshit...

I just want to feel...

I was warned...
Absolutely numb
No good around people
Everyone knows, and watches me

How did I get here tonight?
What am I doing here?
How did I reach this state?
How did I lose my sight?

I'm lost... I'm freaking
And everybody knows... Everyone's watching

...so here's all my hopes and aspirations
Nothing but puke
God, it's so lonely

I just want to feel...

    General CommentIt's about doing something to fit in with people you don't really care about but want to be liked by. In this case it seems it involves some chemical substance. I've been in this exact situation, and that's why this song holds some meaning for me.

    Song MeaningThis song is about Devy dealing with his Bipolar Disorder. It's pretty obvious if you have it.

    General Commentthis song is about being an alchaholic and everyone being ashamed of you becuase of it. also, their name, i think, is called that because it's about all the problems in someon's life.

    General CommentIs well known that Dev suffers of bipolar disorder and that when entering the studio to record a new album here goes off his meds, therefore I take this one as a claim of what he undergoes in order to make an album, sort of a declaration of bravery!!!

    General CommentThis song is about someone who is going through hardcore detox and wishes it would just be over and he has come to the conclusion that he was warned but did it to himself. And everyone has to sit by and watch him go through this world of shit!

    General CommentThis song is amazing, most of it is just about some guy talking about his life and what he is going through, but then when it gets to the "bridge" of the song, it's him going crazy...

    "HOW...DID I GET HERE TONIGHT
    WHAT AM I DOING HERE
    HOW DID I REACH THIS STATE
    HOW DID I LOSE MY SIGHT
    I'M LOST...I'M FREAKING
    AND EVERYBODY KNOWS...
    EVERYBODY'S WATCHING..."

    Awesome song.
