Your contribution left unnoticed some
Association with an image
Just credit time for showing up again
Attention wandered I'm left with it

Gone by sin too slowly
Can't pass it up
Then I thought nothing is right
I turned it off

To die unsung would really bring you down
Although wet eyes would never suit you
Walk through no archetypal suicide to
Die young is far too boring these days

Your will to speak clearly
Exposed too much
Unsung once too often
Could not rub off

    "The worst song on Radio X."

    Like hell it is.

    As if this song didn't kick ass before San Andreas existed.

    This is one of the few Helmet songs that have true lyrical meaning to me. It's about being underappreciated and walked over, then cast aside upon speaking out. I've been there before.

    This is one of the best Helmet songs ever, I was so pumped to hear it in GTA: San Andreas. I guess this song is just telling people to speak their mind and stand up for themselves before it's too late.

    I'm pretty sure if this song was featured in some film you wouldn't have said "this site isn't for film enthusiasts" in your pompous little aristocratic voice. Prude. Sooo anyway I loved Radio X on GTA:SA. Bought back a alot of good 90's memories. I just couldn't stand that fucking dj. Even if it was tongue in cheek.

    This song is so damn good. Love it. It's the best song to pump out through the speakers in your car while driving over unsuspecting little kids and their parents. Helmet is a good band. Too bad only Page is left.

    Hmm... sad to see only one Helmet song has more than two comments. This song kicks ass though. Gotta love that riff.

    Great song. I think helmet is kick ass but I think they should actually sing more in their music. Like in this song.

    weird to see all of the comments on this song are within a month of now. I think I got this album 12 years ago and while this is probably the most famous Helmet song, I know it was the song that got me into Helmet.

    I just saw them live on the snocore tour and Helmet rocked. Amazing show, sounded like Paige never missed a beat.
