do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do, duh-dah-duh-dah-dah

you give good face, you've got so many
rubbing both your hands like you were shining up a penny
everyones your friend everyones your lover
i pull the knife out of my back, just to discover
loyalty is motivation settling it's score
no matter what you give in it will always want some more
obsticles are opportunities waiting without wings
i need a bat to smash the mirror my conclusions bring
i count on me to count on nothing, i can count that on no hands
i count on me to count on nothing, found me someone who understands this

i think it's you. i think it's you. i think it's you that i want into
and if you do. if you do too. and if you do then i hope you

keep up the pace you'll find hope if there's any
trouble wears your face like a finger holding back the levy
never one to bend, never one to wonder
i'm the fool 'cause i don't understand, so i stand under
royalty of post invasion, life is not a chore
give everything then give in, tell me who could ask for more
popsicles and firecrackers angels without wings
i need to stack and burn to black all of my favorite things
and count on me to count on nothing, i can count that on no hands
i count on me to count on nothing, found me someone who understands this

i think it's you. i think it's you. i think it's you that i want into
and if you do, if you do too, and if you do then i hope you

don't wait up 'cause i'm not going to sleep
out of all of these thoughts decide which ones i can keep
don't wait up 'cause i'm not going to bed, so much of nothing to do
i guess i'll sleep when i'm dead
so much of nothing to do
i guess i'll sleep when i'm dead
so much of nothing to do
i guess i'll sleep when i'm dead

    General CommentMaybe...he's talking of society in general. We stab others in the back, and we can look how ever we want "you give good face you've got so many" meaning we can put on many false faces for different situations, i came close but this might be a little weird. Because in the beginning he talks about pulling the knife out of his back, still alive. Then he says I think ill sleep when I'm dead. Conforming that he was talking about the society in general. Because of this, their not talking literal, because the few that have to be stepped on, (those stabbed in the back) werent killed because it says ill sleep when I'm dead, now he's lazy theres nothing left to do, his MOTIVATION was drained when his loyalty was ended with an abrupt stab in the back. Then we just put on another face to cover it up.

    YOU DONT HAVE TO READ THROUGH ALL OF THAT THAT WAS JUST MY ANALYSIS READ THE VERY END!
