And this is where I stay, in between the in between.
No more cold winter days.
No more sudden tragedies.
If you really want to know me take away the human heart and stab it with
something not so sharp.
Twist like her finger in my hair she's got a brand new white canvas on her
face for me to splatter with paint.
She's got nothing more than what was left running down her throat.
The best of us was left in your sheets,
restoring things here in between defining what everything means to me.
The truth's sometimes so hard to see, in my passive uncertainty,
it's a chorus with no melody.
She's got a brand new white canvas on her face.
The best of us was left in your sheets.

    General CommentI think that the song has something to do with sex, but i'm not sure about splattering sperm on someone's face. lol. It is possible, though, but I think he means that their relationship was based on sex, therefore "The best of us was left in your sheets."
    I saw the splattering paint line as more of an angry 'I'm going to kill you by splattering your own blood on your face' kind of thing.

    Just a thought.

    General CommentThe video for the song would seem to support the blood theory. If you also go by the video, perhaps white canvas = a white face from death. So yeah, if you take a look at the video, you could look at the lyrics being directly interrepted on screen. I think the song probably has some deeper connotatoions about a love itself dying.

    General CommentI think the song is definitely about a relationship based on sex ["the best of us was left in your sheets".] But I think perhaps she cheated?.. ["the truth's sometimes so hard to see, in my passive uncertainty."] and he wishes to kill her. To me the "brand new white canvas on her face" is a white sheet placed over her dead body.
