success serenades me
and pressures at the door
broken promise debris
lie around from my mind war
and my accomplishments interrogating me
today's become tomorrow before i wanted it to be

desperate discussions
disturb the destruction
i assigned in my mind
i'll be find, i'll be fine

'cause i'm under construction everyone
so you'll have to mind the mess
i'm under some construction

i always had to try harder
i never really could keep up
sitting in the corner
with my illness and bad luck
but in this humble place
i'm feeling like red wine
and i hope to get better with some time
i'll be fine, in some time i'll be fine

'cause i'm under construction everyone
so you'll have to mind the mess
i'm under some construction

correction
modification
alteration
construction

and the rituals that soothe and disgust me
will be gone in some time, i'll be fine
in some time i'll be fine, i'll be fine

'cause i'm under construction everyone
so you'll have to mind the mess
i'm under some construction

construction
feel better with some construction

    General CommentThis is my very favorite No Doubt song... it's about how Gwen's going through a messy and confused period in her life, things are "under construction", and things seem to be moving so fast and leaving her behind. But she wants to get better and catch up... going through some inner "construction" to improve and life all sorted out.
    It's about depression really, didn't Gwen say that during the Ros period she was depressed? It does a really good job at summing up those feelings when your depressed and you just want to get things back on track.
