There's something i can't figure out
There's something that i can't let go
It's here it's real and it's staring me in the eye
It's all i see now
Growing into somethin new
Becoming what i always knew
Would change me if i let it go
would turn on me if i let it show now
If i let it show
And you always got the best of me
While bringing out the worst of me
I found myself again and i didn't like this thing that i've become now
So i gotta do this right now
Cause tomorrow I ain't lookin back
This is my last chance to come clean and make it right
And show you what i know
Sinking ever further
Concrete shoes keep me around
It's getting way to late to change tonight
Shudder to think i may be wrong
It's easy to lose when you're the king of loss and everything slips by
Taken a chance making a change
For better or worse
I can't let go
and i know what i want
Is what we think of ourselves inside
The same as what we really are
Is what you see in me
really what i wanna be?
Is this all for me
Is this all for you?
Is this all we see in ourselves?

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has commented because this is a really powerful song.

    I think it's about undergoing a gradual change that strays from one's core values, realizing this and the inertia associated with most gradual life changes ("concrete shoes"), and then saying to oneself - "I need to change today or else I'm headed down a path I don't want to." This song marks a turning point for the vocalist, if he follows through with his conviction.

    General CommentI agree this is one of my favorite strung out songs.
    "I found myself again and i didn't like this thing that i've become now"......

    Seems to me it's about someone whos changed for someone( a girl perhaps) and now doesn't like what he's become. "And you always got the best of me
    While bringing out the worst of me"


    I think the line at the end really drives home the point "Is what you see in me
    really what i wanna be?" He doesn't like what he's become for this person and realizes he must change if he wants to be happy.... Thats just what i take from this song
