"Me" as written by and Michael J. Mushok....
I hear you talk about your family life
I wish I knew just what that means
I guess my mother never loved my dad
And now I wear it on my sleeve

My sister called me just the other day
It felt so good to hear her voice
My problem is I don't have much to say
I guess she doesn't have a choice and I'm sorry

Look at me I'm so pathetic
I can't believe I'm just an addict
I've never needed anyone to help me
I'm begginCause now she seems so fake to me but I love her

Look at me I'm so pathetic
I can't believe I'm just an addict
I've never needed anyone to help me
I'm begging you to please come save me from myself, save me from myself

If you push me then I won't fall
I've been programmed to take it all
And shove it way down inside

Like my father
Like my father

I'm so pathetic
I can't believe I'm just an addict
I've never needed anyone to help me (I'm failing it)
I'm begging you to please come save me from myself

I hear you talk about your family life
I wish I knew just what that means

    General CommentIt's about a person who's family life has been really screwed up and he wishes he knew what it was like to have a normal family life

    General Commentwhen I first heard this song Aaron basically ripped my chest open and spelled everything out that I was feeling (and still am feeling) yeah, I guess my mother never loved my dad... that's why he moved out. I love hearing my sisters voice. I don't have much to say. My mom really doesn't know how bad she messed me up and I still love her. My father can put up with a lotta stuff.

    General CommentThis song is called Me because it is about him being self centered. He's using his dysfunctional family to get the point across. If you look, the words me, my or I are in every line.

    General Commentlisten to any STAIND song and you'll know just how i feel, but this song...i mean it has so much to do with me i don't have brothers or sisters so the line "My sister called me just the other day
    It felt so good to hear her voice " represents to me like my cousin called and i didn't have shit to say to her...
    I think the song is all about his family being dysfuctional but he doesn't hate his mom or his father or any of them, but they made him suffer, coz somehow they "erased" Aaron(i say this coz i know almost all staind songs and is the idea i get from them)...i think Aaron had some hard shitty times with his family but i guess that his KARMA is cleaned..i mean he payed his dues now is time for him to be happy...
    ONE LOVE

    :D

    General Commentyepp, i love it. i can relate so much. dysfunctional families are a pain in the ass. but it keeps things ever so lively, does it not? never a dull moment. then again you also have to realize theres a 99.9% chance you'll be fucked up too, oh well. wee.
