"Fade" as written by and Michael J. Mushok....
I try to breathe
Memories overtaking me
I try to face them but
The thought is too
Much to conceive

I only know that I can change
Everything else just stays the same
So now I step out of the darkness
That my life became 'cause

I just needed someone to talk to
You were just too busy with yourself
You were never there for me to
Express how I felt
I just stuffed it down
Now I'm older and I feel like
I could let some of this anger fade
But it seems the surface
I am scratching
Is the bed that I have made

So where were you
When all this I was going through
You never took the time to ask me
Just what you could do

    General CommentThis song is about any relationship, family or otherwise that is one sided...the other party is selfish and self-involved while the other just takes it.

    General CommentThis is probably about expressing your anger at parents, for not taking the time to care for their kids and grow to hate them

    General CommentThis song is about a kid whos parents can find time for everybody but him. He's looking back on his child hood and remembering, and he thinks that he should let it go but he can't because of all the anger his parents caused him.

    General CommentThis song really relates to how I feel because my parents split when I was little and now I've been tossed out of both my father's and mother's homes. I've felt abandoned and alone all my life but now my dad wants me to move back in like everythings okay. I'm trying to forgive him but he was never there in the first place so why should I trust him now? I just think that that's kinda how Aaron felt when he wrote this song.
