Blue October – Dirt Room lyrics

I'm like a ghost
I'll be living in a dirt room
Waiting for the day to be closer
To the window when you're home
I'll be standing by your back door
Reaching for the knife in my coat
I'm going to put it to your throat
Sweaty piggy, you're a bad man
What a fucking sad way to go
Your mother raised you as a joke
I should have wiped away a burden
Use the curtain in the kitchen to choke
You

You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
When see what I do to you
Look what I do to you

Oh god then you awoke
You started screaming through the duct tape
Don't ever think I'm letting you go
I'm busy digging you a hole
Now you'll be living in a dirt room
Breathing through the straw of your own
Come on
I really think that this is fun for the money
I'll make it comfy for the time wasted making you rich
I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
Then take a picture for the cover of our album!

You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
When see what I do to you

You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future, the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
But I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
When see what I do to you

And now I see it all
'Cause your back's against the wall
And finally you're mine
You're mine

You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
When see what I do to you

I really think that this is fun for the money
We'll make you comfy for the time wasted making you rich
I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
Then take a picture for the cover of our album!

    Though the music video shows a burglary, I don't think that the actual meaning of the song is that direct. I suspect that the song is about a woman who's indirectly using him for her own gains, and he's had enough. I just don't think they wanted to make a violently sexist music video for the public to view. The song could be interpreted in different ways, but this is what I feel when I'm listening to it.

    I don't think this song is about music piracy. I really doubt that illegal down loading would piss him off that much; most of the money comes from live shows. I think the song is about Motown Records and their greed (explaining the burning $100 bill with mr written on it in the video). I think they took advantage of blue october and sucked away their profits. Justin uses the analogy of a neighborhood thief to represent mr's actions. I really like how the video ends. Every person that the thief stole from stood around to watch him be buried, even police officers. It's justin's way of saying "If you take from us, you WILL pay." Very clever song.

    Its pretty obvious that this song is for all of the people that download music illegaly. That's why he wants to cover you in ants bees and honey to take a picture for the cover of the album, to show what happens to you pirating swine. Also by illegaly downloading instead of buying the album you are taking food off of his and everyother musicians tables. Obviously those who do it do think they own him and are better than him or they would feel they have the right to steel his music. When he says that he will make you comfy for the time spent making you rich he is talking how he wrote this song to be bad a*, and people are going to download it and relize the meaning of the song and feel uncomfortable for doing sonething so sinsiter.
    I have to go now my songs just finsihed downloading off of limewire.

    The way the song first struck me. It came off as a child who's father left his family for whatever reason. The family was being buried in debt and what not without the extra manpower to help out. This caused the child to hate his/her father in a murderous manner.
    Probably not what it means. But that's how it came across to me. Don't flame me either just cause I know nothing of the band or it's members. I merely just had a movie playing in my head as I listened to this song.

    Uh, faslane: You think you are on the up and up because you "met" the band and asked a few questions at a rock show? Why don't you do some research. It is obvious that you are merely a fanboy and need to step down off of your high horse. For one, Matt indeed does have a wife and children, so nice try.
    Consider yourself pwned by someone who actually knows the band.
