  • Mara from Las Vegas, NvBlack Cloud is CXT's best song to date. This song is about how depression can set in and it can destroy everything you have, including you. It is bout taking the wrong path, and realizing it, and then getting better. This song shows how all the guys are getting off the drug path and going the right way, and the whole album reflects that. I am not sure this is what they meant, but it is how i interpreted it.
  • Nick from Paramus, NjThis, in my opinion, is one of Crazy Town's best songs because it is actually talking about something besides sex or just bragging about themselves like they usually do.
  • Corky from Mymom, Ksmakes me think about they are either singing about drugs and thoughts on their minds
