10 Years Today

Album: The Poison (2005)
  • This song was written about a friend of Matthew Tuck who tragically committed suicide 10 years before the song was written. It shows the effects that suicide has on someone, and how certain questions about it are never answered, and never will be. It leaves a feeling of guilt on all of that person's friends and family, and lots of anger that there was nothing they could do to help. >>
