"Your Evil Soul" as written by and Nicholas Edward Thomas....
These pills aren't working anymore
My guts are spilling out onto the floor
Of a nightmare you wouldn't believe
Of a nightmare you could not conceive of

You're floating above my head
There are words carved in my chest and they said...
"Could somebody show me the kind of affection
That you only see in the movies,
You know what I mean"

I will suck the elixir from your fingertips
Until I feel my head start caving in
My mouth will overflow with your evil soul
And I'll be convulsing for days in this hole
Bubbling at the lips that you used to love to kiss
Well, I think I'm trying to wake up, but I can't

These pills aren't working anymore
My eyes are gouged out and rolling under the door
It blacks out the nightmare you wouldn't believe
A nightmare you could not conceive of

You're floating above my head
There are words carved in my chest and they said...
"Could somebody show me the kind of affection
That you only see in the movies,
You know what I mean, you know what I mean"

I will suck the elixir from your fingertips
Until I feel my head start caving in
My mouth will overflow with your evil soul
And I'll be convulsing for days in this hole
Bubbling at the lips

I know you never meant to do everything you put me through
It's okay I forgive you
Just know that when you see me cringe sometimes
I'm trying to rid the poison from my mind

I know you never meant to do everything you put me through
It's okay I forgive you
Just know that when you see me cringe sometimes
I'm trying to rid the poison from my mind

I will suck the elixir from your fingertips
Until I feel my head start caving in
My mouth will overflow with your evil soul
And I'll be convulsing for days in this hole

    General Commentprobably one of my favorite spill canvas songs. Its about someone who is so paralized by a breakup they must result to drugs and medication to get over their ex. she's got so many problems but she feels so good for the singer. for him she is like a drug that he used to medicate himself with however now that she is not there the feeling he gets from real medication is not the same. he tries to get rid of all of the painful thoughts of her but it is impossible. she cant even begin to understand the hell that he is experiencing. he wants his life to be surreal and beautiful like in the movies however he does not find things to be that way. Although he knows that she is bad he gives this girl the benifit of the doubt saying that she did not mean to do everything she did, but he wants her to know all of the pain that he is going through because of her.

    General CommentI'm trying to rid the poison from my mind


    This song, to me, is about a breakup that was probably for the best, but he just can't get over it, as much as he knows he should... Maybe it hits me this way because that's the situation I find myself in, but oh well...

    General Commentthis song hits me hard...because just as many of you.. i feel in the same situation. for me one of the awsome lyrical points is the elixar. he is saying that everything this girl touches turns to gold and he is going to do everything he can to stop her. he cant get over her because shes so amazing but the poison in his mind is the terrible feeling of being apart from her.(damn you v.) lyrically and musically, i havent come across a band that is close to this calibre (if i use big word is should try to spel it right) i

    "you know what i mean"

    almost everyone here does know what he means. that is his amazing talent. he can make us see and feel so much in one five minute song so that we can all relate. we have all been in this position. we just cant always find the words to relate to others what we're feeling. he is undoubtedly one of the absolute best lyricists i've ever experienced.

    General Commenti love this song, i think we can all find oursleves to others and like one of you said, you cant always find the words to relate the way your feeling to others. this is great (the song not the situation we find ourselves in) because when you cant do that ypu can put on a song and know that at least some one understands. it helps to know your not totally alone. the thing i love about sc is the way he sings with his voice thick with emotion
    love you all

    General Commentahh. my fave TSC song... so sad there's not many comments on it. but anyways-

    I know you never meant to do everything you put me through
    It's okay I forgive you
    Just know that when you see me cringe sometimes
    I'm trying to rid the poison from my mind


    that's amazing. right there.
    It's just saying that "I could never hate you for what you've done,I know you didn't purposely come up to me and stab me in my heart. But sometime's i'm going to hurt and not feel good, I can't help it. I'm a human being."

    General Commentthis is my favorite favorite favorite spill canvas song. i ask him to play it all the time at shows, and he won't. :(
    i relate so much, and i love the "i know you never mean to do...." and in my case, i feel that way, but don't honestly, deep down forgive...and i feel like he didnt really forgive her. i asked and he said that he forgave her at the time he was writing it, but not now. maybe again later.

    and i dont think he's using the term "elixir" as in "turns everything to gold"

    i think he's using it as a term for an "all-healing" substance. saying, her touch can heal anything. make him happy, feel love, want to be alive, and he's going to suck that feeling from her fingertips till he no longer can take it in.

    oh my i love this song. and affection like in the movies..my goodness, that line is just gorgeous.
