No your not the first to fall apart
But always the first one to complain
You better get careful or you'll compromise
Everything you are

The world is a drought when out of love
Please come back to us you're all of the above
"I'm making a choice to be out of touch
Leave me be" he said
He said he said
"leave me here in my
Stark raving sick sad little world!"

I've never had unpaid confidants
Its more than I would care to explain
But I have an open door policy when it comes to blame

The world is a joke when out of love
Please come back to us your all of the above
"I'm making a choice to be out of touch
Leave me be" he said
He said he said
"leave me here in my
Stark raving sick sad little world!"

    General Comment:I love this song... except it's too long. I'm not sure what it means, I think it means someone who left and they want them to come back? Not sure.

    General Comment:My favorite song on the CD. You can tell there are parallells to Dirk like scott and Amnesia said. No matter what the meaning is, the song kicks ass.

    General Comment:Sorry, old-school fans, I love SCIENCE as much as the next guy, but this is the best Incubus track in existence.

    I see the Dirk Lance connatations. If it is about Alex, then I see what Brandon meant. He wrote a lot of the songs on this album on a personal level for himself but ambiguously enough (if that's a fitting word) so that other people can relate to his words.
    Oustanding work, indeed.
