"Milquetoast" as written by and Page Nye Hamilton....
Tell me if you think it's all right
I'll give in to what you know
I don't see the habits that
Become me
I've saved up my useless thoughts

Well means, it works I'm on your side
I said that? well so, I lied
remember I tried not to be wary
This failed me once too much

Unrecognized
Well preserved
Don't forget what you heard

    General CommentI think this songs about all those things that you hear and wanna believe but societies norms and regulations won't allow you to believe them, so they become "useless thoughts", but don't forget, "what you heard".

    General CommentThe quality of being a "Milquetoast" seems to spread from person to person, usually striking at different microcosmic reasons, making the condition harder to shake upon spread... that is, if such a thing goes "unrecognized."

    I think that the first person here is speaking in constructive [for both / all involved] retaliation against another who has encouraged him to act in weakness and compliance in his everyday life. He realizes that doing so places him directly in the stomach acids of the metaphorical beast which considers his welfare as far as his palatability. Fucked up.
