Song lyrics
In the dark with the music on
Wishing I was somewhere else
Taking all your anger out on me, somebody help
I would rather rot alone
Then spend a minute with you
I'm gone, I'm gone

And you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

(Chorus)
How could you, how could you, how could you hate me?
When all I ever wanted to be was you?
How could you, how could you, how could you love me?
When all you ever gave me were open wounds?

Downstairs the enemy sleeps
Leaving the TV on
Watching all the dreams we had turn into static
Doesn't matter what I do
Nothing's gonna change
I'm never good enough

And you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

(Chorus)

Tell me why you broke me down and betrayed my trust in you
I'm not giving up, giving in when will this war end?
When will it end???

You can't stop me from falling apart (3X)
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault.

(Chorus)

(Vamp out)

This song makes me think of my relationship with my dad ... so I pretty much understand what the writer of it was saying. AND BY THE WAY, SKILLET IS AMAZING!

He said that God told him to get back in touch while he was doing a concert.He said that!YES!They are still spreading the word.I was getting nervous cause switchfoot changed (i saw them in concert and they took the word redemption out of "Dare you to move")

wow thanks!
I was wondering about this song also, but then it came to me to, that it was about his dad, although i didn't know that Jon had a step dad, i just thought it was about his dad...
Great song!

to everyone who is wondering what htis song means...i was wondering the same thing until i saw skillet in concert last week and Jon the lead singer edxplained it. it is about how is mom died when he was really young and then his dad re-married 2 onths later. he felt that his dad had betrayed him and his mom so when he graduated he left and didnt come back but finally God told him to get back in touch with his dad. it is a great song and very meaningful. i hope this helps all of you that were confused.>

i agree with you guys i like the new cd although i regretably got ahold of the copy that didn't have open wounds which was why i wanted it to begin with but now i can't seem to get the thing out of my player

i am so sad! i got the "collide" cd a while ago, and they JUST released a new version of the cd that has "open wounds" on it. i didn't get the song! i just saw skillet in concert and they played "open wounds," and it was really good (of course, all their songs are!). so if you guys haven't bought "collide" yet, go for it, because now it has an extra song.
