Starry configurations I'm just a receiver
Divine recombinations I'm just a recordist
Receptionist - unhappy medium
Receptionist - unhappy medium
Excellent accommodations I'm just a bellboy
Beautiful surroundings I'm just some gravel
Or peat moss, what have you
Or peat moss, what have you now?
Why must you treat me like you do?
Don't you know it's all for you
Dear infatuation, you do not see me
Die here beside you in see-through obscurity
Governess, fancy lass, we'll sound the alarm
And drum up some simpleton for you
To eat these apples from your eyes
Emptiness fills room
Your love's bud goes full bloom
You don't love me
Aren't thinking of me
Why am I waiting for you to see I'm alive
Storybook ending I'm just a ledger
Hardly worth a mention or the paper
It's written on and cried upon
And kissed once by wax
But still you treat me like you do
With everything I've done for you
Striking like a bird of prey along your notepad now
The only year that turns your way
My dear diary: it's just you and me tonight
You don't love me
Aren't thinking of me
You don't love me
Aren't thinking of me tonight
Why am I waiting for you to see I'm alive

    General Comment"Dear infatuation, you do not see me...die here beside you in see-through obscurity."
    This song is about someone who is obviously ignoring him and he is really into them. Obscurity is being see-through and unnoticed...

    General Commenthe really digs this person and they don't notice him. it's like he's just the insignificant thing in everything worth noticeable. his infatuation will just fall for anyone they can dig up, but he isn't noticed, no matter how he tries.

    i love this song

    General CommentThis song is beyond great. There are about a billion and seven songs about a girl ignoring you, but this one blows the rest away. The lyrics sum up that feeling so very explicitly. Beautiful song.
