this agitation revisits me
I wanna communicate so freely
but when you talk to me I don't think that I understand you

so hesitation would certainly
help me to think before, before I speak

but when you talk to me I feel as if I can't control it
can we just agree?
cuz when you talk to me I feel as if I can't control it
can we just agree?
is it up to me?
ah-ah

in conversation I fail miserably
I wanna be someone else whenever I speak

cuz when I talk to you I dont think that you understand me
can we just agree?
cuz when I talk to you I dont think that you understand me
can we just agree?
is it up to me?

conversation is amazing when we're free to say things
people often won't because they hate themselves
these situations almost dayly
have a way of making people undestand that all of us are one
but isolation and division
will be our destruction if we can't communicate
so as I contradict myself and forget all I said...I am free
yeah! Whoa Oh-Yeah!

    General Commentwow, no one has said anything about this yet...this is an awesome song! I can really relate to this song, cause I'm a very shy person, and talking to new ppl, especially guys, isn't always the easiest thing to do...
    "in conversation I fail miserably
    I wanna be someone else whenever I speak"
    I feel like that a lot, like when I say something dumb and want to take it back...
    But I think the song means something more than that, like sometimes we are bound by who we are so its hard to understand what other people are giong through, so if we could all just be free and ourselves we could communicate a heck of a lot better..but thats just my thought

    General CommentThis is one song that I can definitely relate to. I consider myself pretty anti-social. I have crappy people skills. I can be quite a loner. It takes a while for me to open up to people and feel comfortable with them in conversation.

    General CommentI agree with the both of you, because I am the same way, except when im near sumone i care about or am in a deep conversation, my words dont always come out right. But i think what brett was trying to get at was how he was explaining about it in the last part of the song. he says how we dont say what should be said because we hate ouselves or others. And i love it when he says "so as I contradict myself and forget all I said...I am free." that part is very inspirational to me

    General Commenttihs is such an awesome song. i agree with the 3 people above me totally..i must say my fave part of the song is this:
    "conversation is amazing when we're free to say things
    people often won't because they hate themselves
    these situations almost dayly
    have a way of making people undestand that all of us are one
    but isolation and division
    will be our destruction if we can't communicate
    so as I contradict myself and forget all I said...I am free"

    that is just...such an awesome lyric. TJT rocks.
