Solitaire Unraveling Lyrics - Mushroomhead

Review The Song (16)

Locked Away In A Cage
My Rage Has Got The Best Of Me
Time Finds A Way Each Day
Of Leaving Less Of Me Behind
I Find This Fight Must Be Won
Inside The Mind
So Uptight And Confined
Often Blinded By The Light
Taking It's Toll
On My System
Like Some Played Out Existence
Time Ticks Away
These Last Few Moments
Is There Anything
We've Left Unsaid?
I'm On A Quest
For Atonement
I've Got To Find Piece Of Mind
And A Place To Rest
Biding My Time
Until I'm Strong Enough
To Fight Back
I Hope Against Hope
For Some Resistance
Been Taking It Out On My System
Rest-There's A Calm Before The Storm
And The Western Front Is Quiet
I've Got Rembrandt As My Right Hand
And Solo As My Pilot
Condemned Man
Convicted Man
Could Not Save My Life
Cutting Strand By Strand
Passing It Off
Like Some Kind Of King
You Don't Know Peace
'til You've Had Suffering
I've Suffered
All Of Your So Called Resolve
But You Haven't Tasted Pain
Have You Ever Been Inside
Of The New Masterpiece?
Have You Ever Been Inside?
Rembrandt As My Right Hand
And Solo As My Pilot
Have You Ever Been Inside
Of The New Masterpiece
Condemned Man
Convicted Man
Could Not Save My Life
Cutting Strand By Strand
Strand By
Strand By
Strand By Strand

You never really don't know suffering till you suffered. Then you know peace. Strand by strand by strand. Being inside. You are the masterpiece. You can't judge till you known suffering. So stop judging. Were all masterpieces. Even if some part arnt perfect to fit the puzzle. Like Picasso paintings. Some people look at it as something to look at like this is boring or this ugly. But then it's some of the best masterpiece known all over the world. What you consider bad is good to someone else or what you consider good is bad to someone else. So don't be quick to judge. Your a masterpiece. Look in a mirror. You know who you are.

Government | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/14/13

The songs about the war for your soul in this world. Alot of their song has to do with the corrupt government and how they played a role in blinding us and deceiving our souls. And there's a calm before the storm and the western front is quite. The new masterpiece is the preconcieved agenda of the banking military elites. " all of your so called resolve but you haven't tasted pain". N the polluted water is exactly what it is, the government puts fluoride into our water supply. These filthy hands is another great song about it too.

My brother (very religious) and I (not religious at all) went back and forth on this quite a bit.

His thoughts: It is a message to mankind that we cannot carry our own sins, that we should give up all hope and we will drown in our own river of blood (I'm paraphrasing a bit)

My thoughts: First of all, there is no river of blood in this video. It is simply polluted water. It is a song about struggle and pain that everyone endures in life - there is no escape from that and in this sense, all of us are condemned. The song is also correct that we cannot save our own lives, all of us will die eventually. The Trojan Rabbit is a symbol for the burden we pull from the moment we are born till the time we die. Why it's a rabbit beats me. Solitare is derived from the word "solitary" or aloneness. In essence, the song is about the aloneness of life that always ends in one way only, and that is death. All of that is true. It's not Satanic as my brother things.

Lesson To Be Learned: Stay away from church so you can think objectively

meaning? | Reviewer: Anon | 1/10/11

It means whatever you want it to, if you think it's about a game of solitaire which the "new masterpiece" is your child and you are continously reincarnated through your childen and you suffer over and over again to get a job, fit in society only to start over again. Good. That's what it means then. The artist probably have their own meaning, and they might not, it might have just split onto the page like this. But until we ask them, we won't know. but we know Mushroomhead is amazing

Never knew mushroomhead was this good | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/4/10

I think its about self hatred and being alone most of your life because of it. Its a song about struggle, mainly. He's trying to perfect himself forever just so he can love himself, but never can achieve it. Therefore condemned. At least thats what it means to me, but it could be this and more.

good song, meaning video? | Reviewer: anonymous | 10/2/10

i think the video is more meaningful (u can understand more) the child that is been pulling the (i dont know) has been suffering and he cant kill himself... until he dies
"rembrandt as my right hand, solo as my pilot"
the "pilot" represents the child/old men that has to be pulling tha alone.....

My thoughts | Reviewer: Goth | 1/22/10

I think it deals more with suicidal thoughts and the conflict that comes with them. I think convicted and condemned is more trapped in a state of solitaire and feeling and seeing your life unraveling. Strand by strand makes me think him severing ties, cutting himself down strand by strand analyzing everything realizing his masterpiece. You don't know peace til you've had suffering. (i also don't agree that it's What's Suffering, sounds like I've Suffered.) Maybe he overcame suffering and found his peace.

THE meaning | Reviewer: AEnima | 1/7/10

This song is about life. in the music video the signs along the roads say "nowhere". Everything you work for is just made to make you suffer and ends in nothing, and you will only relive it through your children's pain in reincarnation. "Have You Ever Been Inside Of The New Masterpiece?". 'the new masterpiece' is your child. this is shown in the music video as being a rabbit, the symbol of new life. in the music video when the band goes inside the rabbit, it means they are going to be reborn as their children and relive it all over again. basically its a never ending cycle of pain for yourself.
"Solitaire Unraveling", Solitaire, yourself. Unraveling, finishing the game. and the thing is, when you finish one game of solitaire, you always just start a new one.

As to the strangulation idea with the rope, im not saying its wrong but I feel its more figurative then literal. Cutting strand by strand means sowly but surely he is losing his attachment to his sanity, being represented by the rope.

Good meaning | Reviewer: Mech | 8/20/09

I believe this song is about a person fighting within himself to control the rage building up inside himself after either seeing an atrocity or being a victim of one. I'm sure we all have been in this place where something appalling happens to us and we just want to fight but can't and the festering of this rage over time eats us away till we are UNRAVELING. And in this unraveling state you end up feeling so alone as if in complete solitude. That's just my perception since I am often caught up in this mental cage as well.

Great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/15/09

ok. all your points are valid, you can pretty much go either way, locked in a prison, or locked in your own mind. it all kind of flows. my one question is "solo as my pilot".. like Han Solo?... starwars in my metal *cry*

a great song.. | Reviewer: Mx | 12/14/08

this song and the video I got the idea that the song is about a guy in a know, with all the fighting in your head, questioning his own humanity and distancing from other human beings.. what do you ppl think?

Nice song! | Reviewer: Ionut | 10/26/08

I think it is about someone who is locked in the instinct of preservation, but wants to kill himself, so he must gain control (the fight inside him). I think the suicide is done by strangulation, and someone else is convicted for killing him (Condemned Man (Condemned)
Convicted Man (Convicted)
Could Not Save My Life
Cutting Strand By Strand (Strand By Strand)). The strand by strand refers to the rope used.

i love this song | Reviewer: Power Puff | 8/18/08

this song is awsome, the idea that its about prison is good, i guess it works, but couldent it also just be a guy whos dieing? "is there anything we've left unsaid?" and a place to rest? just putting it out there

nice song... xD | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/4/08

well the meaning is kinda hard to figure out for me.. cuz well its got a lot of meaning in one song. maybe its not about prison or maybe it is but first of all, it might be talking about one who's been solitary by themselves and is trapped in their own mental prison and this could have been caused by someone else. so It Must Be Won Inside Me, meaning he has to fight it in himself. and taking it's Toll on the system, for this i think it might mean his physical internal system inside, and it really has actually no meaning than just to live so its just like wasting away... most of it sounds like prison, but not sure about the whole meaning. but for me, i think its a struggle with oneself and with the outside world because its already fucked up... and you don't want to be fucked up yourself either...
