Sensation washes over me, I can't describe it
Pain I felt so long ago, I don't remember
Tear a hole so I can see my devastation
Feelings from so long ago, I don't remember

Holding on to let them know
What's given to me, given to me
To hide behind the mask this time
And try to believe

Blind your eyes to what you see, you can't embrace it
Leave it well enough alone and don't remember
Cut your pride and watch it bleed, you can't deny it
Pain you know you can't ignore, I don't remember

Holding on to let them know
What's given to me, given to me
To hide behind the mask this time
And try to believe

If I can remember
To know this will conquer me
If I can just walk alone
And try to escape into me

Sensation washes over me, I can't describe it
Pain I felt so long ago, I don't remember

I'm just holding on to let them know
What's given to me, given to me
To hide behind the mask this time
And try to believe

If I can remember
To know this will conquer me
If I can just walk alone
And try to escape into me
Into me
Into me

    what the fuck, saying "this song rules, this song is awesome, i love disturbed" isnt giving the song any meaning, shit, people are so retarded, 'Remember' is about — not focusing on all of the existential chaos that's going on around me and not necessarily getting drawn back into bad habits.

    I think this song is saying that it is easier to hide your feelings, and forget your past, so you wont have to remember the pain, or feel the pain that you once had, and no one will judge you based on what happened to you previously... but, thats just me =P i love this song... hits really "close to home"...

    Ok, first thing's first... this song is probably my favorite Disturbed song. I love it because the first time I heard it, I thought it sounded distinctively different from Disturbed's other songs and you just gotta love the lyrics!

    Anyways... I'm not entirely sure what David's singing about in this song... but I DO think it's pretty obvious that he's singing about how a person can hide behind a false facade in an attempt to ignore and forget the pain he/she has felt in the past.... meh... sorry for pointing out the obvious, but that's all I can think of right now :P

    there is really alot more to be said other than "this song is cool." i really think "Holding on to let them know" and "And try to believe" is really saying the he is going to stay strong and believe in himself because and wants everyone to know that all he needs is belief in himself.

    that's awesome. i mean, can anyone believe in you if you don't believe in yourself?

    I read an interveiw with the singer of the band and he said the song is about remembering not to drink too much (or not at all) or else his voice will get fucked up. The way David sings, he really shouldn't drink or smoke or else he'll fuck his voice up and then there is no Disturbed.

    Saw an interview on MuchMusic on a show called Uranium where David explains the songs meaning.

    He stated that it is hard to go back and live a normal life, now that he and other band members are "famous". He often feels he hides behind a mask and it hard to really be himself.

Thee More Shallows
So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
