I never thought I could watch someone come apart from the insides to outsides
but every day I see strings fall loose
and every day I see hope lost-
with all this complicated I can't even get pass the thought of thinking
and wondering whether help or understanding rings truer
and I don't know how to do anything anymore for you
but I know that you should stop this world spinning right this minute
and take a look from higher up
and then you could realize just how broken your aim really is
so why don't you ask yourself to show up sometimes?
why don't you stand up tall and kick yourself in the mouth
to remember and to get that burn back
and scorch your stomach and bleed that passion lost
and don't forget what picked you up and don't forget to think this time.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my friend who once had such a great future in whatever she wanted to do but now she is all hooked up on drugs and she wont listen to anyone.

    General Commentif it wasnt for her she would have been dead not you...I am a recovering anorexic and I can tell you that no one in the world, threats and all, can make you change but yourself because the reason most people become anorexic is control "anyone can control anything about me but no one can make me eat" k im done lecturing I just thought that was selfish of you to say

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the CD. I think Chris is trying to say that he is tired of this chick that he devotes all of his time to, but she never "shows up" and he wants her to gain back the passion she once had for him.

    General CommentThis song reminds ME of a good friend of mine-intelligent beyond belief, talented, all around wonderful. Yet he drinks constantly and is using drugs and doesn't see a thing wrong with any of it. I wish I could make him listen to this song but I doubt it would help. But this song is perfect for this situation, and many others I can think of. chris is a genious, no doubt about it.

    General Commentdeathtoseth is corrent. i believe the lyrics "why don't you stand up tall and kick yourself in the mouth" that were taken from the purpose song. basically, "piano player" is about how saves the day is ruining and mainstreaming music that is close to their hearts and this is the response back. (all this information comes from the singer in my band who used to be the bass player in purpose).
