I've built up this collection of
Souvenirs from years of missed connections
I'm giving it all away
So here's a ripped up picture and
Here's an unused ticket from the show, the play, the game
I'm giving it all away
This is the part

This is the part where we start to feel better
And stop shutting up
We're all running out of time, waiting in line

This is the part where your friend got sent and
All the big war words stop making sense
And you wonder where the money ever got spent
And you wonder how that motherfucker ever got in
This is the part where you get to realize that
Whether your dad died, your boy or your girl lied
There are families on the other side
It's a start, it's the same place for any and all hearts
This is the part

[Chorus: x2]

Waiting in line

Yeah, this is the part where we start to feel

[Chorus: x2]

This is the part
Oh, oh, this is the part
Yeah, this is the part
This is the part
This is the part where we start to feel

    General CommentGratitude is a great band... everyone go buy their new cd...

    This song to me is about just forgetting it all. When you try so hard but you're just like fuck it... what's it mean anyway? And once you've finally let that go, it starts to feel better. It's about learning to not dwell on things and waste time. It also keys in to think that there are ppl out there who are going through the same thing as you, and some worse.

    This song is kick ass... it makes me wanna break shit LOL

    General CommentBest song on the album by far! The end of the song, as Jonah starts screming "This is the Part! Oh, oh, This is the Part!" always sends a shiver through me for some reason

    General CommentJonahs best work, Gratitude that is. Agree with the "fuck it" feel. and the shivers up the back is what defines amazing music. thats what this is.

    General Commenthmm....i never really got the f it vibe. makes sense tho. and yea totally this song is AMAZING...but i saw it as politcal view almost- like check out the second verse. "all the big war words stop making sense" [politcal speechs revealed as lies] "and u wonder how that motherfucker ever got in" [the corrupt politician] ..and then the rest not so black-and-white. but whatever it means, awesome song!!

    General CommentI dont think this song is about "Fuck it all" at all, more I believe this song is supposed to express the band's distaste for people who care about petty problems in their life, where across the world people are starving and dying of disease... thats just my interpretation..
