the way you operate, is straight to the bone
and everything you say, it leaves me alone
the way you compromise, is like pulling out my eyes
and you say, that everything i do
it bounces off of you, with everything i say
the way you operate, is straight to the bone
and when i find my eyes, ill cut you down to size
until then, ill wander around blind
bumping into signs, and falling on my face
the way i think youll take it, so i guess im breaking it
every time i open my mouth, and i cant live it down
and i think you know it, so i guess im blowing it
every time i open my mouth, no i cant live it down
the stupid things ill say under the knife
sometimes the words i say dont come out right
so all the things i wanted you to hear
went unsaid, unsaid, went unsaid
i know that i cant live it down
i know that i cant live it down

    General Commentmy favorite movielife song, i'm sad there's not a huge discussion over it. :\

    i relate to this song a lot.

    i was in a relationship that wasn't working well after a while, and after a lot of mistakes, instead of just going on with a crappy relationship, i tried to fix it. i asked her too many questions, and said too many concerns, and apparently it's too much work so she just pretended like i dumped her. it was easier for her to do, put the blame on me for being concerned, instead of taking the steps to fix anything. and i'm pretty sure this is exactly what the song is about:

    "the way i think youll take it, so i guess im breaking it
    every time i open my mouth...and i think you know it"
    so yeah. as bart simpson would say, "you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't."
