a memory lapse
a heart that collapsed
a fragmented time
that's turned into math
i can't stand the sight
i turn my eyes

a pressure here
a pressure here

when i say "i don't know"
it means "i don't want you to know"
my plans will change
i will pack then be ready to go
and drive away from this tar-heeled state

and go back to omaha
a place i know i will be safe

(your eyes are blind)
what i'm listening to
it's not logical
that's why i'm leaving you
because that's possible

now i can't pretend
to be someone i am not
the bed that you made for me
used to put me right to sleep
but now i lie awake
slowly devising this speech
your plans have failed
you are shaking, you're chilled and you're weak

(your eyes are blind)

    General Commenti think this song is about a person who at once made the lead singer feel vulnerable and desperate all the time.. soon, they switch positions and they are "shaking, chilled and weak"..

    "the bed that you made for me
    used to put me right to sleep
    but now i lie awake
    slowly devising this speech"

    those lines could mean that whatever that person used to do to the singer to make them feel as desperate as they did will not work anymore.. and that the singer is finally 'awake' and thinking of exactly what to say to let the person know their plans have failed..

    anyways that's just my take.. for all i know, this song could mean nothing. still great though
