Five Finger Death Punch: Remember Everything Meaning
Song Released: 2011
Remember Everything Lyrics
I'm sorry, I wasn't good enough
Dear Father, forgive me
Cause in your eyes, I just never added up
In my heart I know I failed you, but you left me here alone
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb...

I love this song. I'm not clear on the meaning, but I cry a little every time I listen to it.

it reminds me of another soldier story as like mine most the people who join are running away from home you get deployed and all you can think about is the ones you loved most your family that you left behind noones the same when they come back noone I'm not to scared to admit it I have issues with family and such this song when I first heard and still hear it makes me think of it all over again like I was coming off the plane from afghanistan

I grew up with PTSD from severe abuse when I was 4 years old and still suffer from it today (rage attacks, flashbacks, etc...), when I heard this song it reminded me of the betrayal I felt when my parents left me with the babysitters who caused it (they did everything from making death threats at me (remember I was 4 years old), attempting to smother me with a pillow once and ultimately chopping my left foot up in the deck of a riding lawn mower (long story on how they accomplished that without a struggle and every time I look at whats left of my foot I am forced to remember it). This all happened back in 1978, the people responsible are still walking free and never faced any kind of punishment (to this day I still struggle with forgiveness), my parents never did anything in response to any of it. I acted out a lot back then while growing up as a result, so my parents have things to forgive me for as well. My parents also neglected me and treated my siblings as favorites over me, so the whole forgive me if I forgive you thing hit a chord. My point is (if you will forgive the military metaphor) that this song hit me like a H.E.A.T. round to the chest. It's an amazing song and carries a very strong message.

I think that this song is about a boy who lived in an abusive home (maybe abuse towards him, maybe abuse towards his mother, maybe all of the above) and in turn he became an abuser towards his siblings, towards others and that now he is looking back on all of it and finding some clarity asks if starting over would have really changed anything ....
I saw my mom abused and was abused both physically and verbally by my father. This song reminds me of my life and not being able to let go of the hurt and hatred you have for the people who were never supposed to hurt you but did. It leads into adult hood and never being able to fully trust people and end up pushing people away because it's easier than letting someone else you fully care for hurt you just like when you were a child. You start taking the hate you feel inside out on people that would have never hurt you in the first place. It's tough but a great song.

Ok from wat I hear, his parents mistreated him(abuse) n tried to make him be wat they wanted, his siblings didnt know wat he was going through, he felt alone n betrayed by his parents so he ran away, now he's grown n his past is haunting n affecting him like he ran away but he cant really get away, so he goes n apologizes for leaving but lcant forgive them n tells them he remembers everything. N wonders if things were different that he wouldnt have left n went through all the hurt n pain

Dude, where the fuck do you get sexual abuse from? its about a broken home.

Yall gotta watch the video before opening your mouths! there is no divorce indicated in these lyrics. I read the comments youtube and 1 of them said that his dad died of a drunk driving incident his mom to a rare cancer and both siblings. He said he heard this song play on the radio on the way home from work and pulled the fucking car over and started crying. I hear this song so much differently now

I think they just cover all the basic problems most people have in one way or another with thier family just to have the song hit home for everyone

It's about a kid molested by his father. He feels like he betrayed his siblings because he couldn't stop them from the abuse. He "remembers everything."

I almost got the idea that he's talking about someone killing them self, but that's just my interpretation

I think it means he never forgot how his family was to him and he feels sorry that they said he wasnt good enough.
