Something to Remind You Lyrics
I say goodbye
To this chapter of my ever-changing life
And there's mistakes
The path is long
And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone
So when the day comes and
The sun won't touch my face
Tell the ones who cared...

This song is about a young man who committed suicide by hanging himself. All he wanted was to be remembered when he was gone. Aaron Lewis
Really hit the mark with this song tribute. It's a beautiful, but sad song. Inspired and written for a young man who felt he could no longer go on in this cold, cruel world.

Well my interpretation to this song would be.. yes talking about death.. saying that too much is going on and the road is long... that he has been through a lot and the face will show the stories that he cant erase... being that at some point age has kicked in and soon he will be laid to rest..

It seems like a song that explains how someone is feeling while they are contemplating suicide. The thoughts of some individual feeling down aren't accurately recorded by the individual and are better recognized and portrayed by an outside person.

I heard that a kid committed suicide, recorded this song right before he hung himself and played it on replay, then the kid's best friend sent it in to have staind remake it.

On an interview on YouTube ("The Making of Staind Documentary" 11:22 & 15:16) he said that this song's about a kid fan who wrote a letter to him & had a best friend who committed suicide. The fan's best friend wasn't interested in anything (like music or the Gtr.), but he later bought & learned the Gtr. The kid Played & Sang & Recorded Outside & then Hung himself. When his parents found him his song was playing as a loop. So it was for his parents to remember him playing & singing outside. So, from what he says in the Vid I think this is what the meaning is.

i think this song is about someone who is closing a chapter of their life. moving forward onto a new path. feeling as if no one really cared, but thinks a few may miss them when they are gone. not just metaphorically speaking, but literally speaking as in death. it speaks to me of relocation, heartbreak, and mistakes. i think it is a beautiful song. it states that "when the day comes when the light doesn't touch my face, tell the one who care enough that i've finally left this place that's been so cold". cold in the sense that noone was around, noone cared, and it was time to accept it, and move on. from a location, a relationship, and family. in the end the judge and jury will be God.

possible depression, contemplating suicide...?

I honestly think it is about the band dissolving, in the song it says "I say goodbye to this chapter of my everchanging life" There was also rumors of troubles between the band during the recording of the album. Its sad to say, but this may be the end of Staind
