By The Way

Album: Extreme Behavior (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • This song most likely describes a troubled marriage: "In the middle of a breakdown - watching you scream - In the middle of a breakdown - screaming at me!" The singer really wants to make things work out, but he knows he won't be able to change. >>
