"Check Your Head" as written by Joshua Todd Gruber, Jonathan Brightman, Keith Nelson and Devon Glenn....
Jesse died today I heard the news it's safe
Photographed nude at age thirteen
Nick was a friend of mine
He died before his time
Dead on acid at age eighteen
Ooh and you still bitch
About your payments
It's funny how your looks predict
Your statements

I dressed in black today it represents
This phase I'm in
And what it was I can't believe
The stain glass your hiding behind
It's from a different life
And what it was it's still in your dreams
Oh and you still bitch about your payments
It's funny how your looks predict
You statements

[Chorus]
So check your head set your eyes
On your dreams
Be happy with nothing
You're a sight to see
So check your head
Set your eyes on your dreams
Be happy with nothing
You're a sight to see my love

You fell out of time with some distance to go
It's not a design it's a talent show
And if you believe it's the end of the line
You'll be taken

Now Jesse never thought that what
She did would change my life
She just thought her life was a waste of time
And Nick worked hard to graduate
And after that he died he always
Thought high school was a waste of time

[Chorus]

    General CommentMy favourite song on Buckcherry's debut. Love it's bluesy feel and how the solo is backed up by powerful rhythm guitar. To me this song is about not losing sight of what's important in life and as woodendogz said, getting back to what makes YOU happy in your life.
