I don't wanna talk
You're too busy gone
You're too busy being strong
You can never guide
?????????????????? (Dunno how to hide?)
I confide something's wrong
What is it you see when you look at me
Am I all you hoped I'd be
Or have I become the ungrateful son
You know, the one you speak of

I remember back to when I was young
There was so much going on
We were very tight
Now we always fight
I confide something's wrong
Nothing's ever good
Nothing's ever pure
as you slam another door
Who am I to be
What will I become
I'm not a child anymore

Follow me out
Into the world
Wish there was some way for me to be heard
More that we shout
The further I am
We do this over and over again

To tell the truth I been getting through
everytime I pass through you
I've been moving on finally belong
I confide something's wrong
Maybe we can mend in a couple years after all the air has cleared
But I think for now I'll be moving on
I gotta learn to be strong

Follow me out
Into the world
Wish there was some way for me to be heard
More that we shout
The further I am
We do this over and over again

Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you turn away
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you turn away
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you turn away

Tell me what you see when you look at me
Am I all you hoped I'd be
You don't have the right
Everything is fine
Because I can confide

Follow me out
Into the world
Wish there was some way for me to be heard
The more that we shout
The further I am
We do this over and over again

Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you
Why
And we do this over and over again
Why
Why did you
Why
Why did you
Why
And we do this over and over again

    General CommentIce-Nemesis... " I dunno how to hide " is the lyric that goes in the place of " ?????????????????? ". Other comments: This is a great song dedicated to a betrayal between one person and his/her victim. This is especially dedicated by me, to a person I used to know, after he started to toy with our 'friendship', over and over.. In between attempts, he would apologize, and I would forgive. Well... one day I really wrecked.. him. Never saw him again. LoL.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song. One of my favorites by Dry Cell, if not my favorite one. It means that you've lost someone. The person has betrayed you. You used to be so close, now you just fight. And you just think back to that and look at the way things are now and can't believe how wrong things have become. And it happens over and over.

    General CommentI don't quite agree with Aerion. The song is about someone you used to be close to, but that someone is more than a freind. It seems the song is to a parent, and Jeff is being a "Typical Rebellious Teen." He talks about being an ungrateful son and not ebing a child anymore, which are references that are almost blatantly directed at a parent. The parent in this case, is too busy to listen to him, and is very critical of his actions (Nothing's ever good, nothing's ever pure). The two fight, and Jeff is being pushed farther away with every fight. He's moving on and becoming independent. To further the idea that the song is directed to a parent, he suggest mending after a couple years, which is often the case with parents and children who fight in the teen years. A similar situation happened with me,and after moving to college (where I am now) the air cleared, and I mended all those fights with my parents. I'm just basing this song on personal experience and similarities to my life. The lyrics are strikingly reminescent of a parent-child dispute, though.
