"Family System" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
Oh oh oh,
Oh oh oh.
Oh oh oh!

I'm tired of your open mouth,
Crawling inside my skin,
And this play we never quit,
The fight within the cross begun,
Say that its too late,
When a man has gotta learn to hate (hate).

Urh!

Forget the time I said never will,
Replace me with,
But never will,
Beyond the facts that are in your face,
Ignore the facts beyond your nose,
Said its to late,
When a man has gotta learn to hate.

Grow up!

Not without meaning,
No response,
Not a feeling.

Hu hu uh
Hu hu uh

Just grow up!

Ruh!
Ruh!
Ruh!
Ruh!

Uh reh!

    My InterpretationThis song is about a dysfunctional family.

    The verses are pretty self-explanatory, and the "What a man's got he'll learn to hate" is talking about how they were blessed with a family, but they started to resent it.

    "Wrong!" is an argument back and forth.

    General CommentCorrect Lyrics:

    I'm tired of your open mouth
    Crawling inside my skin
    Endless pain, we never quit
    The fight within that prides begun
    Saying it's too late
    What a man's got he'll learn to hate
    Forget the time I said I would
    Replace that with I never will
    Beyond the facts held in your face
    Ignore the facts beyond your nose
    Saying it's too late
    What a man's got he'll learn to hate
    Grow up
    Now without meaning
    No response, no revealing
    Just grow up
    Wrong

    General CommentI think this is about how everyone gets divorced now a days and no one cares about family. I can totally relate to that...

    General CommentActually, I just got the CD. Several parts on this are wrong:

    "had this plan we'd never quit" should read "Endless pain we'll never quit. / The fight within that pride's begun." "When a man's gotta be" should say "What a man's got he'll learn to hate." Finally, the second verse should be "Forget the time I said I would / Replace it with I never will / Beyond the facts held in your face / Ignore the facts beyond your nose." Finally, the little couplet there should be different, but it's 3:24am and I don't wanna go out to the car.
