Should I offer up my hand
And save a wish for once
For all of us
And should I offer up my hand
And lay the guilt on myself
So it's easier to not stay
To not stay

Because I found you in your corner
I pulled you out of the clouds
You left in such a hurry
Your face is lost in the crowd

Should I open up my eye's or just ignore who you are
And what you could have been
And should I open up my eye's and make believe you will change
So it's easier to not stay, to not stay


Your face is lost in the crowd
Your face is lost in the crowd

    General Commenti like this song inside and out, this reminds me of a friend you know for a long time. as the time flies he just starts to mess up and you don't know who he really is anymore once he sinks deeper.

    General Commentperhaps about a friend who fell to drugs, and the person blames themselves.

    General Commentseems like a bunch of people failed, one person is trying to re-right things, save the others, the others have given up "you left in such a hurry" and this person has not, trying to save them, depressing to some, but motivational to me

    General CommentOKay so a quick example of what i think it means.

    Person finds a druggie. He helps the druggie get back clean, and good. Then the druggie turns back to his drugs and does something to the guy, and in the end the guy feels cheated and that its almost his fault.

    Could be applied to many things, relattionships etc.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a relationship. He's saying that he helped them out and brought them out of a shell, maybe. Then they turned their back on him and left him "holding the bag". I don't know. I'm going thru something just like this and it seems as if "she's" turning her back on me now that she's not in the shell I found her under. I see the "druggie" part to this song and so it could be about that too. This Cd is so bad ass for inspiration while feeling like shit!

    General CommentI think its about both a relationship and drugs...I thinks its about how he helped the person he love beat an addiction but how in the end the person fell off the wagon and now shes lost in the crowd becuase he has given up.

    General Commentyou guys are semi right...the song is not about drug addiction...when i was at the concert here... he explained about this song a little....the song is about him and an ex...she cheated on him...she wants him to beileive that she will not lie anymore and will be true to him....he obviously has no reason to beleive her because she cheated on him...

    General CommentI keep telling people, there is no such thing as right or wrong when interpreting lyrics. Lyricists write this stuff to share with us, it is not really the readers' job to take what they say word for word. Think for yourself. And if you notice, the caption above the comment box says "what does this song mean to you. I believe this song is about a person who maybe falls to peer pressure, doesn't necessarily about drugs. Maybe these two friends were both going through a difficult time and they were both there for each other like brothers but one day, one of em just snaps and gives in to temptations, resorts to alcohol and whatnot for an escape. Sure, it sounds a tad far out but that's what you're supposed to do when interpreting lyrics.
