"Soulsick" as written by and Pedro Paixao Sergio Crestana....
I am only real at places I can not be
My right hand rebels and chops off the left
(the) hairy ape walks into stage
He tries to stay erect

The one who never slept
In order to be perfect
The arrogance of their hands
The joy of the regret

Soulsick - good at things I never did

Soulsick but skindeep, tense, frantic but relieved
Soulsick but skindeep, tense, frantic but believed

I am only real at places I can not be
Dead liquid vigilant
Implanted into my sleep

The one who never slept
The one who stays erect
The one who is profound
The one I do reject

Soulsick but skindeep, tense, frantic but relieved
Soulsick but skindeep, tense, frantic but believed

Soulsick - good at things I never did

I am only real at places I can not be

Soulsick but skindeep
I'm not real, just believed in

Soulsick but skindeep
Not real, just believe in

    General CommentCall it a shot in the dark, but I think it's about Lucifer. The line "I'm not real, just believed in," makes me think of some religous figure, while the discussion of perfection makes Lucifer come to mind.

    Anyway, let's see what the rest of you come up with.

    My InterpretationTo me this seems obvious, the teller is hurt inside, but doesn't let it show, thus "soulsick but skindeep"

    "the one who never slept
    in order to be perfected
    the arrogance of their hands
    the joy of the regret"

    He's spent his whole life perfecting himself, bbut he gets no real responce for his good will from the people, thus "arrogance of their hands", the joy of the regret is what it feels like to let go of the uncredited goodwill..

    "The one who never slept
    The one who stays erect
    The one who is perfect
    The one I do reject"

    This is the one he rejects, the uncredited perfection, the one that wasn't worth the effort..

    "I'm only real at places I cannot be"
    there are groups of people who seem more used to dealing with the dark sides of the psyche, but he doesn't dare to be real there, they are too strong personalities, instead he's real with the popular people who always show that delicious shock when he tells he likes the tears and what not..
