Understanding
Candlebox Lyrics


How people tell you lies.
I thought you felt the same.
Somehow he thought you'd be there
Help him beat me down, again.
It's all I know.
So you want for me, some things we never see.
Left alone to fill time.
So empty all your thoughts now, turn around your hate,
Take a look at me.
Hang on security.
It's all been overrated, this life you live, it's not your own.
There's no one here to help you.
It's all been unadulterated lies, they'll keep telling you
they'll keep telling you, how I want to
Raise it on my own,
Nothing special maybe, nothing special lately
Time to feel it on your own, time you want to take control
So you've told them all,
I thought you looked the same
Do you need this light to help you see it clearer again?
Closer to my letter,
Open up for some to breed,
you're sharper these days, roll on security.
It's all been overrated, this life to live, it's not your own
there's no one here to help you
And it's all been unadulterated lies, they'll keep telling you
They keep telling you, how I want to
Raise it on my own,
Nothing special lately, nothing special maybe
Time to feel it on your own,
Time you want to take control
No now fall, call for me to fall for
Everybody wants to tell you something,
Everybody wants to fill your, nothing.
Everybody wants to break you out now,
Everybody wants to take you out now.
And everybody wants to tell you,
And everybody wants to fill you in.
Do you think it's time to tell them?
Yes I think it's time you shove them a little harder.
Yes I think it's time that you pushed them over
Don't you think it's time you told them stop!
Raise it on my own no, no time to feel your soulless lately
Everybody wants to tell you something,
Everybody wants to bring you something,
Everybody wants to take you,
And everybody wants to bring you down
Time you feel it in your own,
Time you let them take control,
Time you fill their needs,
So empty all your thoughts my friends
For everybody wants to break you,
And everybody wants to push you around

Brian Atkinson

B Montgomery

One of the lost gems of the music vids of the 90's

Lol

Kevin is an amazing vocalist, he's got 3 bands and solo work. He hasn't lost his voice like other aging musicians. I feel lucky to have been in the Seattle scene when all the Seattle bands changed music history forever! I got to watch as the magic happened (BTW Seattle bands and fans are offended by being called grunge) Candlebox will always be famous because the music is great and will stand the test of time !Kevin has the sexiest voice and no matter what band hes in, candlebox will be my fave. The new album Disappearing in airport's is awesome, not one bad song on it!! They're truly underrated but I will always know that candlebox will be around for- ever !

Buck Sawyer

This band is so amazing one of the 90s best today's music will never come pair to a decade of music that has not gone away it just gets better with age like me
