For my time spent
Searching for the world.
I receive all I ever dream for,
In return all is taken away
Remember everything before tonight.
I remember everything before tonight.
These illusions that life is so clear
Have been cleansed from my thoughts.
Floating branches are the only things
Truly connected to the ground

Take me back to how it used to be
I'll never close my eyes again
How could I ever forget a place like this?
Somewhere that I can call my own
My eyes will never see where I'm suppose to be.

Take me back to how it used to be
I'll never close my eyes again
How could I ever forget a place like this?
Somewhere that I can call my own.

This is satisfaction
In it's most
Beautiful state.
Beau-ti-ful state...
Surrounding me
Is everything
That is true,
Just let this be true,
Let this be...

I won't forget this place
I won't forget, this is my own
I won't forget, open my eyes
I won't forget.
I won't forget.

    I think that he is talking about a loved one. He just wants for it to be true; needs for it to be true. But true death has befallen his dreams and he can only look back. People don't know what they have until it is too late. He will never forget; for the love he had was under appreciated. Now he only wants for it to be true. But it never can be.

    This reminds me of the true levity of life. Nothing ever stays the same. Life isn't always a beautiful thing. Home isn't always in one place. And some people in our lives aren't exactly who they may lead you to think. And finally, you can't remain the same person throughout your entire life. Things are always changing. People always change, places always change. Some days are absolute blessings, others are deep deadly cuts. One may have loved their life at one point as well as abhorred it in another. But I guess the thing that keeps us all going is the ability to remember. To remember the times we were happiest, the times we were in deepest despair, and use those to formulate insight to govern the course our lives to make it most meaningful to us.

    Being this is a song from someone's personal experience in the group, and knowing their background, I believe it was to those they held dear where they lived, their friends in high school, at home, and everyone in troy in general. It talks about them getting the record deal and people they cared about being upset they would be gone for long periods of time touring and being rockstars. Also how they knew people would be upset but becoming mmi was what they truly wanted so they had to go along with their wishes. "how could i ever forget a place like this? " is a message to those people that knew the group members on a personal level saying troy will always be their home. "beautiful state" means ohio in a whole because that is their home and that won't ever change. Again this is just my interpretation of the song, so I'm open to other ideas. Mmi ftw.

    Every song is up for individual interpretation but I believe this song is believing the world is one way, and then one day something happens and melts everything you knew away. Hence the forget part, another would be, your in paradise with the love of ur life, and then they mess it up. Hence the forgive.

    I agree with icipher. Its all about drugs. "floating branches are the only things truly connected to the ground". He was obviously tripping when he thought of that one. "beautiful state", when your high everything seems just great and beautiful. Its about drugs fosho but one of the most greatest songs ever.
