As I sift and drift through bullshit
That plagues from day to day
Would you ever really notice
That I've gone away?

I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
I'm over the safety
Over the phone calls
Over the rage
What a Mistake

When you've lost the stones to throw
The one I found to make a fire
And all the lonley souls that say so, get fired

I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
(Can't seem to get out of the way)
I'm over the safety
Over the phone calls
Over the rage
What a Mistake

What a Mistake
What a Mistake
What a Mistake
What a Mistake

I've never been lost
I've never been found
And it makes no difference
If I'm around.
(Can't seem to get out of the way)
It's never been words
It's never been actions
It's never been promises that I've never kept.
(Can't seem to get out of the way)

I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
(Can't seem to get out of this)

Pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling
Oh what a mistake

Mistake

As I sift and drift in bullshit
That plagues from day to day
Would you ever really notice
That I've gone away?

    General Commentthis is just a great song... that riff is killer at the beginning.

    as to what i means, i relate... bascially he messed something up with a girl by overthinking and worried... hence 'over the rage'. he realizes he was angry over nothing.

    General CommentI believe this song is about how the past Relationship was a Mistake. How he's finally over all of it, All the hurt feelings, the anger, the happiness, and just trying to move forward.
