"Untitled" as written by and Anna-lynne Williams....
Hopelessly drift in the eyes of the ghost again
Down on my knees and my hands in the air again
Pushing my face in the memory of you again
But I never know if it's real

Never know how I wanted to feel
Never quite said what I wanted to say to you
Never quite managed the words to explain to you
Never quite knew how to make them believable
And now the time has gone
Another time undone

Never quite said what I wanted to say to you
Never quite managed the words to explain to you
Never quite knew how to make them believable
And now the time has gone
Another time undone

Hopelessly fighting the devil futility
Feeling the monster climb deeper inside of me
Feeling him gnawing my heart away hungrily
I'll never lose this pain
Never dream of you again

    General Commenthey people, it's not an untitled song. the name of the song is "Untitled." the song is about how he never could come up with the right thing to say, so he's being cheeky with the song title -- he can't even come up with a title.

    General CommentMy friend recently took his own life, and wanted this song played at his funeral. He used to always listen to it in his car and make us be quiet when he would. I never knew the meaning, but now its meaning is so much deeper.

    "Hopelessly drift in the eys of the ghost again"
    "never quite said what I wanted to say to you"
    "never quite knew how to make them believable"
    "and now the time has gone"
    "i'll never lose this pain, never dream of you again."

    General CommentWhen I was in H.S., this song was something I could listen to and feel less alone, and wallow abit.
    To me, it was about the inability to communicate love for someone, and the regret when the opportunity passes.
    I had such a crush on one girl. It turned out she had some feelings towards me as well. My opportunity came with her, and I was too scared to act. She soon looked elsewhere and I wallowed to this somg for quite some time.

    General Commenthe says "again" several times in this song, showing that this is a constant occurance with him. he finds himself from time to time coming face to face with this ghost of this regret, holding him still in the past.

    i never got a sense of lost love on this song, but more of a family member who died. wishing you could of not only said the right words but said them in a way that the other person would fully grasp and understand what they meant to you. But it's too late and this person is gone.

    he talks about 'the devil futility'.. trying to fight out the feeling of it being useless... maybe his uselessness or how its useless to be stuck in the past because it's too late, giving the stark realization that once again there is nothing he can ever do about it.. and going in full circle here, he acknowledges that that's what eats him up inside, so much so that he knows he will always hold that regret 'i'll never lose this pain'

    'never dream of you again'.. they're gone

    General Commenti think its about losing someone but also an addiction, whether their seperate or one is causing the other, the addiction means someone is being lost...... a very sad song, can be pretty painful when you listen to it if you've been through either..........

    General CommentI think this refers to lost love of any kind. Robert Smith seems to sing about it a lot (another example is "Pictures of You"). It is indeed a very sad song, but so beautiful.

    General CommentI read this song in three parts: Memory, regret, and the pain caused by their synergy.

    The first few lines are all about memory: how elusive, how haunting, how it hovers and rains images of past a with someone whom we loved truly yet poory, a past we wish to recapture.

    The following lines express our regret for simply "not": not letting her know how truly we felt. Maybe if we were not preoccupied with the words, we might have shown her with simple actions.

    The two together wreak havoc within, become a monster inside, clawing into every aspect of our lives. And because of this, there is no longer any hope, no dreams to speak of.

    General CommentI had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend, and this song is like my personal thoughts transferred to music (of course much more poetic and beautiful than I could express). I used to dream of this girl and pine for her all the time and this song was a huge comfort for me after she went away. Thank you Robert.
