Everyone // you know people are always trying to put their shit on other people,
you know, make it somebody elses fault. They can just turn around and look in the
mirror and realize that its them.
// Blow it Away // is about an addiction I had with drugs over a girl,
its like I was, it was the stupid part of my life, I was pissed off at everything.
Id just graduated high school and that song was kind of like retelling the story of
what was going on in my life.
// Giving In // probably one of the most spiritual matters on the record.
Its about everyone having impulses and acting on them sometimes gets you into
trouble. And thats what that whole song is, its about giving in to your
personal demons and realizing it and trying to do something about it.
// Freaking Out // its about high school and youre trying to fit
and people are; kids are mean and shit and a lot of people feel alienated and taken aback
and that song is pretty much about that.
// The Way You Like It // Thats like my laugh back at all those
people, like ha ha Im here Im doing what I wanna do. I dont have to deal
with that anymore.
// Close Friends // A real close friend of mine stole my girlfriend from
me. Thats what that song is about; its about being betrayed by two people you
// Do What You Want to Do // thats pretty self-explanatory.
Its about me not listening to anyone tell me how to live my life or try to get me to
do things I dont wanna do.
// Skin // its about the struggle between two people wanting to be
together and not being able to because of the differences and opinions and ideas of the
way relationships should work.
// Pain Inside // is about religion and stuff; its about people
trying to push ideas and thoughts onto you, tell you that youre wrong, youre
going to hell cuz you dont go to church and you need to save yourself.
// Speculum // is about losing a child actually an abortion. Somebody in
the band, I wont say who but one of boys in the band had his girlfriend, she was
pregnant with his kid and didnt even tell him and had an abortion and he found out
about it after. Its not putting all the blame on a women, because there is a part in
the chorus that goes "If I would have known, I cant say what I wouldve
done". Its kind of like a serious song, kind of a tribute to that.
// Drowning // Thats about all the people I hate in the world,
thats very self-explanatory, what Id love to do with them.
// Trust // is about pointing the finger back on myself and apologizing
for being a prick in some of my relationships I had in the past.
