A Day To Remember – Holdin' It Down For The Underground lyrics

Been through a lot this last year
Like everything I love is slipping away
And every time I come home
Some of me isn't there
I got to get it together
I got to do things for myself
I've giving everything
Plus you take some from me
I need some room to breath

Come on come on
You know this isn't what we planned on
Come on come on
Tell me we'll be ok
(We'll be ok)
Lets go back lets go back
To a time where I
Still felt I had a family

This isn't what I remember
Everyone is looking
Out for just themselves
And need be I'd be happy to leave
Just be warned,
I'll be taking most of you with me
I see straight through
That smile straight through
That painted face
Don't think I can't tell
Which one of you is against me

Come on come on
You know this isn't what we planned on
Come on come on
Tell me we'll be ok
(We'll be ok)
Lets go back lets go back
To a time where I
Still felt I had a family

I had the greatest faith in fools,
I turn my back and out came the wolves!

Pay attention!

Come on come on
You know this isn't what we planned on
Come on come on
Tell me we'll be ok
(We'll be ok)
Lets go back lets go back
To a time where I
Still felt I had a family

Been through a lot this last year
Like everything I love is slipping away

    He feels like when he comes home its not the same and he needs time to himself now hence "i got to get it together". The feeling I also get from this is that hes tried to mend whatever isn't the same. Its either his friends or family, maybe both. He wishes things were the same. When he came back everyone basically just cared about themselves and their own issues. He see's what really happened and who people really are. Like their true colors came out. He trusted untrustworthy people and they betrayed him - "i had the greatest faith in fools,
    I turn my back and out came the wolves! "
    whats happening what supposed to happen. Meaning he thought nothing would change and no one would change. At the end he's hoping everything will be okay and wants to go back to the way it used to be. -mmv.

    Another error: "but every time i come home *someone i need isn't there. *" you guys seriously butchered the first verse. (maybe it's "some part of me isn't there," but that makes less sense. Either way, there's obviously a syllable missing from the posted lyrics.)
    Anyways, I love the song. I think while it mentions family a lot, it's talking about his life in general. He uses "we" and "us" in the chorus, so he obviously isn't completely alone. I don't want to analyze too deeply because I don't think songs are usually that specific.
    Amazing song from an amazing band.
