I wish i had a different star
I wish i had a different Silhouette
You decrease me, you seclude me, aggravate me and you made me,
What i am today.

This is the way forwards,
You are the way backwards,
I chose the way forward,
And left you all behind.

I wish we could comunicate,
Despite the fact you'd hate me anyway,
You seduce me, you abuse me, you frustrate me and amaze me,
What is wrong with me?

This is the way forwards,
You are the way backwards,
I chose the way forward,
And left you all behind.

It's bad enough that you could say that, its bad enough,
I wish that i could trade these eyes
Because now i only despise my own lies
You sedate me, elevate me, incarcerate me and you hate me,
Neptune in the sea.

This is the way forwards,
You are the way backwards,
I chose the way forward,
And left you all behind.

It's bad enough that you could say that, its bad enough.

    General CommentI think it's about something happening to you in childhood, possibly abuse or a friend dying, and trying to escape it. When Dave (Mcpherson, guitars and vocals) talks about a person, like
    "You sedate me, elevate me, incarcerate me and you hate me,
    Neptune in the sea. "

    or

    "This is the way forwards,
    You are the way backwards,
    I chose the way forward,
    And left you all behind. "

    I think he's talking about a place which holds memories for him, that he feels compelled to leave but can't, and then decided he has to to escape the childhood memories. Another thing that made me think this is the single cover, which has 2 really scary looking children's faces on...
    just an idea!

    General Commentno, this song is about having to give up someone you loved, it is double edged to me, like natural, sung in two parts, the chorus, the person who wants out, and the verse, the person who is mayb in love, or obsessed. i bautiful song, i once again say

    General Commenthow is he talking about a love if hes says

    You are the way backwards,
    I chose the way forward,
    And left YOU ALL behind. ''

    The you all doesnt state one person but a collection of people.

    I think the song is about breaking away from something/somone you allowed to change you and push you around .

    General CommentI ain't gonna say that anyone's wrong, unlike *coughs*stebug*coughs*, because everyone has their own interepretation, but I think that this song is about fighting the memories that he's had for so long, and he has finally decided to break off and 'leave all of you' (his memories, and people in the past) behind, because he's had bad experiances in his lifetime, and wants to let go of them.

    Well, that's what I think
