With all my said unsaids / Never swallow
The idea of a happy ending
Another days memory dies
As I'm made to smile / these lifeless days
have left me with an empty heart
another wounded memory dies
I could / never / swallow your false ideals
of a lifeless / happy ending
how could words slit wrists and doors close
present day heart felt moments / killed by a slap
to the hand / another wounded memory dries
poisonous screams with messages
not thought of when released
another day here / another memory dies

    General CommentThis song is about the fact that most of the time there are never happy endings and never will be happy endings and how you never get the one you want.. T.R.I.(M). The Rage Inside ( Me ) These guys understand the pain that most of us face everyday... DONT EVER FALL IN LOVE IT WILL JUST HURT YOU....

    General CommentThis song is awesome and so is Poison The Well. I agree with most of the people here, its about how life is a big dissapointment if you try to make it something its not. If we hope for something to be great we will be crushed when we hit reality. You should always plan for the worst so everything will eventually seem better.

    General CommentListening to this song for the first time I think this song is a lot about not "swallowing" the lies that eevrything will be ok because in doing that you are only setting yourself up for the fall of "sliced wrists and closed doors" And to keep in mind that everything CAN go to shit by your actions. And finally to watch what you say and how you say it because it could kill a memory.

    General CommentI saw these guys in concert... during this song the whole crowd went nuts. As everyone was singing along everything was crazy right in front of the pit. Later... we talked to the guitarist. No one noticed he was there but he started talking to us.

    General Commentone of my fav songs off of The Opposite Of December... honestly I can't tell you what this song truly means... It makes me feel that even tho your life seems happy and picture perfect, it's not what it seems, there will always be anger, hate, and hardship... and that's what makes life worth living...

    General CommentThis song is all about how this guy can't accept a boring, happy ending when there's so much more excitement in the world. He wants to be true to himself hence the lyric: I could / never /swallow your false ideals / of a / lifeless / happy ending.
