Chorus (2x):
You could've been satisfied
You could've been full inside
You could've been happy
Simply with your peace of mind

(Trapped inside)
Places I'm starting to hate
(Stuck inside)
Wasted I fall into place
Watching the world
(And waiting)
And waiting for something to change
Do what we have to
To get what we need
From what's left for people like me
Battered and bruised from the chances I take
It's the impossible way that I think

Repeat Chorus

(More than just)
More than a thorn in my side
(More than just)
More than our differece aside
I'm choosing sides now
(Still waiting)
For my peace of mind now
No strings attached
To the...
Promises given
To the...
Faces and places of those that I hate
It's the impossile way that I think

Repeat Chorus

Here's your share and my share
You still need more to fill
It's all or nothing at all
You take from me
You need the rest from me

Repeat Chorus (2x)

    General CommentMy ex of four years got my into the band three years ago, and after we broke up this was one of the main song that struck my heart and here is why:

    Chorus (2x):
    You could've been satisfied
    You could've been full inside
    You could've been happy
    Simply with your peace of mind

    "(Trapped inside)
    Places I'm starting to hate
    (Stuck inside)"
    I relate this to beinf stuck inside your own head, hating being there with your thoughts alone.

    "Wasted I fall into place
    Watching the world
    (And waiting)
    And waiting for something to change
    Do what we have to
    To get what we need
    From what's left for people like me
    Battered and bruised from the chances I take
    It's the impossible way that I think"
    He is sitting back and reflecting on the pain he feels, numbs it with substance, and waits for change that is out of his control which reminds him of the pain that he has gone through in relationships just for giving things a chance, but I think that he believes he has "impossible" thought patterns because he would still go back.

    Repeat Chorus

    "(More than just)
    More than a thorn in my side"
    Yes, clearly this is bothering him more than something normally would.
    (More than just)
    More than our differece aside
    I'm choosing sides now
    (Still waiting)
    For my peace of mind now
    "No strings attached
    To the...
    Promises given
    To the...
    Faces and places of those that I hate
    It's the impossile way that I think"
    He is realizing that the promises that the girl had said to him now mean nothing to her and to her, he feels his disdain for this girl grow.

    Repeat Chorus

    "Here's your share and my share
    You still need more to fill"
    I take this two lines as something like, I would give you all my love plus all the love you have for me and it's not enough for you.
    "It's all or nothing at all
    You take from me
    You need the rest from me"
    At this point, he has had enough. Goddamnit, it's me or I'm gone. She just keeps taking, while he feels like this will never end.

    Whatcha think?
