I've been insane well the time is slow
The Pope don't matter when the pawn
Is your sea
Don't you agree?
When you're around I'm wound
Around your thumb
You wanna be numb
Inside the gun

I've been in pain hope it doesn't show
I've been insane well the time is slow
Don't you want sunshine instead of phony lights?
All your billboards in lights
Are one big fight
Against the baby inside
That you've mistaken for pain

    General Commenti think that this song is spilt in 2 as the 1st part is talking about life as in death things and the 2nd part is more about what people do in life and how they have ruined it but there will always be around it.
    ahh now they connect it must have to be written down before you get it.

    General Commentthat song and your pussy\'s glued to a building on fire , they all have parts from his song mascara right? why did he make them in to different songs? i think that\'s pretty cool

    anyway.. this song talks about life in general.. 2nd part, \"don\'t you want sunshine instead of phony lights?\" basically means; don\'t you want the real thing instead of a copy? and the rest; all your big ideas and your illusions are a fight against the feelings that you\'re trying to avoid because you think that facing them will hurt you.. or something along the lines of that.

    General Commenti think i get what your at. i think it may have something to do with johns mind being really messed up and he dont know what to do and he dont want to face them.
    by any chance is that within your mind

    General CommentI have always thought the lyrics were 'the pulp don't matter when the pulp, is your seed'.... even if those lyrics are wrong, that's how i will always think of this song
