By the nape of my neck, you can hand me down.
To forge a little more in the quiet that we found.
So just to say anything, you say that you love me.
Only so much time you can waste on me, there's only so much time you can waste on me.
And sometimes I believe in God punishing for lack of faith, so just to say anything I say that I love you too.
Only so much time, you can waste on me, there's only so much time you can waste on me.
You feel fat and I feel ugly.
Together we don't like anybody.
I feel sick cuz I know your gonna run, but I cant blame you.

    General CommentThis song is really something.. I think it means about how you find someone and you like them, but you're not sure if they like you, and how it could really work out to the best... but only if she'd let it work out

    General Commentthe opening lyrics written here are all wrong, he actually starts off the song with "I live with my Mexican hand me downs" because the lead singer of KOLS is 75% hispanic and he was writing about how there was only so much time his hard working parents could spend with him

    General CommentUh. Are you guys frickin retarded. I mean c'mon. this song is in reference to John F. Kennedy's reaction to Cuba's course of action in the late 60's. "You feel fat, and i feel ugly", this is reference to Jackie O's bulemic problem and John F's depression. "i feel sick cuz i know you're gonna run" is in reference to America's fear and John fear of it's citezens fleeing the country for fear of attack.

    General CommentI think the first couple of words are "At the nape of my neck", then it's unintelligible.
