This is essentially the first Broken Halo song ever written. Mere days after the band's first official lineup came together, I (Doug) came to the band with a complete idea for lyrics and vocal melodies. Chords were mapped out and soon after, a basement demo was produced with some embarrassingly cheesy drum loops. The sound of the song changed dramatically when we played it live, and once again when we went into the proper studio to record this dark little gem, which was originally intended to be the opening track on the album.


I don't know where you've been sleeping
and you can't tell me we're not weakened
and you kinda tend to get into trouble
you don't know what you do to me

I don't know where you been staying
and you can't tell me you're not playing
and you kinda tend to get into trouble
you don't know what you do to me

it's not fair
but it's okay
it seems the tables have turned since you've gone away

I don't know what you've been saying
behind my back you've been slaying
all the kind words that I said
you don't know what you do to me

you kinda tend to get into trouble
and you kinda tend to bend the wrong
you can't know how this feels to me
you don't know what you do to me

a secret antidote
to your heart venom
is laying in my hands
the choice is mine
to be dead or alive
