"Mexico" as written by Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Alex Katunich, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
You could see me reaching,
So why couldnt you have met me halfway
You could see me bleeding
But you could not put pressure on the wound

You only think about yourself.
You only think about yourself.
You'd better bend before I go
On the first train to Mexico

You could see me breathing
But you still kept your hand over my mouth
You could feel me seething
But you just turned your nose up in the air

You only think about yourself.
You only think about yourself
You'd better bend before I go
On the first train to Mexico

You only think about yourself.
You only think about yourself
You'd better bend before I go
On the first train to Mexico

    General CommentI listen to this song when I'm frustrated about my roommate. We live in a dormitory, so it's really difficult to get any privacy and it really allows those who room together to see each other's 'true colors', as it were. Well, he leaves me quite frustrated because he is a fairly selfish individual. At the same time, this song reminds me to practice modesty and selflessness, because those on the other end of selfishness just dislike it.

    General CommentHas nobody seen ET? Mexico is the place Elliots dad has ran off to. Mexico is used in this song as a place a lover will run away to and leave his / her partner if they don't change their ways. Not Mexico in the litteral place, more like giving a title to the numb, knull and void place Brandons heart will be led to if his lover doesn't open their eyes. My opinion anyways but i think 2 much :)

    General CommentMe being mexican, i just thought this song was cool.But after really listening to the lyrics i found that this had to do alot with me and my previous relationship.Hes talking about a girl who "only thinks about herself" and no matter what the guy is going through she doesnt even notice.Well that SUCKS

    General Commentdefinitly me favorite song on Morning View, it is such a beautiful song and yet the situation it descibes is so painful. To me the song is about being in a realtionship where you give and give yet, you love is never quite reciprocated. You constantly express and show your love for your partner, yet, they never show it back, not even to appease you.

    General CommentIts about not being able to help yourself...and the one person who can save you....is too FUCKING selfish to do so.

    General Commenti think it's about a relationship where she means more to him than he means to her. he feels so much for her, but she doesn't want to give, because she is too scared or too selfish. i think the "mexico" bit means that, "i'm getting you out of my life".
    freaking brilliant song. one of the best on morning view - they should release it. it's so beautiful.
    i think it can also have to do with a friend though, not just a relationship. one of my friends is like this, doesn't consider any one elses feelings no matter what you say.
    this song was a PERFECT example of how i was feeling. it's so beautiful

    General Commentit is beautiful, and as upset as i am that incubus has "evolved" and mellowed out, this song just might be worth it.
