I'll take your words as if you were talking to me.
Say what I know you'll say and say it through your teeth.
With pride keep every failure in.
And with pride hold on to the sinking.
Now in the deep and down your heart moves.
Now in the deep and down, I don't know how but I know I want out.
Wait for something better.
Will I know when it can be us?
Maybe that doesn't mean us.
Wait for something better?
I shouldn't, it's not enough.
Pull one excuse from another.
Just one excuse from another.
This time it means us. stop.

    General Comment:I think this song is about wanting to be with some one, but waiting so long you forget the reason you're waiting. You still want to wait, but you know it's time to leave.

    General Comment:I lovee this song. The guitars during "Now in the deep and down" is so good.
    Although I still highly rate Bleed American, I agree with polkacore, that Clarity is better.

    General Comment:Clarity is a better cd and this is easily the best song on it. I love the guitar in the chorus, a great example of the teamwork of JEW's guitarists. I love the whole cd but this is the best on it.
