Does the darkness fill you up
Bright flashes, your cheeks flushed
Don't say it don't say it

Because it's still a part of you
It's a part of me as well
We can watch it from a distance

Resistance is futile
Don't shiver from cold out
The sun rise is brutal
Sleep on the fold out

And your lungs are filling up
And you stutter ecstatic
Eyes flutter like an addict

And it's still a part of you
It's a part of me as well
We can watch it from a distance

Resistance is futile
Don't shiver from cold out
The sun rise is brutal
Sleep on the fold out

It's never good unless it's great
You always complicate
All the simple joy, a simple boy
You finally had a taste

Did the darkness let you down
It's just static there's no sound
Don't say it don't say it

Because it's still a part of you
It's a part of me as well
We can watch it in the distance

Resistance is futile
Don't shiver from cold out
The sun rise is brutal
Sleep on the fold out

It's never good unless it's great
You always complicate
All the simple joy, a simple boy
You finally had a taste

Resistance is futile
Don't shiver from cold out
The sun rise is brutal
Sleep on the fold out

    General CommentI see this song as being about a mislead teen who is lured into using drugs and the effects it has on him/her. Something along those lines.

    General Commentit really is never good unless it`s great. i agree with JBValo on the drugs part.
    notice the 'Does the darkness fill you up'
    and then the 'Did the darkness let you down'
    the dependence relating to getting high / coming off drugs.

    General Commenti would say it is more about depression and insomnia that goes along with it. the idea of living for the night because that is when you are able to be alone, but still it is always a let down come morning and will only make the next day extremely hard to get through and make you appear strange. But such a situation could easily be caused by drugs or a relationship someone got in too quickly and couldnt handle:
    "It's never good unless it's great
    You always complicate
    All the simple joy, a simple boy
    You finally had a taste"

    General CommentWow. No one's commented on here in almost 2 years. This is the first song I heard by them too. I think you all covered the meaning (years ago).

    My InterpretationAm I the only one who hears:

    "It's never good unless it's great
    Beauty always complicates"?
