Lost

Story Behind The Song

Lost started as a song about a first kiss and how that felt, but evolved into the way a "first time" sexual experience can leave one with a feeling of guilt and loss of innocence.

Song Description

Lost is an aggressive and meloic, modern rock song that is a nostalgic reliving of a loss of sexual innocence and the guilty feeling of crossing a line that can never be taken back. It contemplates the fact that a first time sexual act caused guilt rather than the euphoric feeling that a youth might expect, but resolves that the feeling will eventually pass with time.

Lyrics

It was seventh grade
Had a flannel tied around my waste
Sweaty hands shoved in my pockets
And fear all over my face
I felt dizzy an dirty and guilty as hell
Wishing it's over and all turns out well
Back pressed up against a rusty screen door
And all that I wanted, I wanted no more

Complication, Insecurity

Take all I've saved
And wash it all away
Don't feel better now
Than yesterday
Kiss innocence goodbye
I've lost my way

I was seventeen
In love with a prom queen
I was another notch in her bedpost
In this after school special scene
I felt anxious and stupid, she's done this before
Her ruby red dressed slipped down to the floor
She turned off the light and I followed her hands
Seemed everything's over before it began

Swallowing my pride

Take all I've saved
And wash it all away
Don't feel better now
Than yesterday
Kiss innocence goodbye
I've lost my way


And I feel like a brand new boy
Funny how it works out that way
I'll laugh again tomorrow
If I can get over yesterday
