All i ask of you is to stick around
Explain your pain and your sadness
All i ask of you is to turn him down
Explain the art of your madness
Wounds take time to heal
System at work here
Wounds take time to heal
I have an idea
About the voices i hear
They're audible to evreyone
Everyone but me
Turn it off

I've been walking in shoes laced with poison
Through a grave of your distractions
Looking over seems like something's missing
I have burned a hole in your conscience
I'm so sorry i didn't mean what i said
I still love you screams the architect of us
I've tried to tell you
With these words that i love you
And i'm sorry
I'm sorry

    General Commentthe bonus track bit is definitely about his mother. I think the first bit could be about the state of mind her death may have put him in. Maybe the personna is a counsellor talking to him? "Wounds take time to heal", "all I ask is for you to stick around", "explain your pain and sadness"- all quite reasonable and reassuring comments. And then we have the more serious, psychological elements.

    I have an idea
    About the voices i hear
    They're audible to evreyone
    Everyone but me
    Turn it off

    Obviously a contradiction, the voices he hears are audible to everyone but him. Either an expression of his insanity or maybe the fact that people are assuming that the negative symptoms he's displaying are ones of insanity. The voices (signs of insanity) are obvious to everyone but him. A stigma or an assumption that he's having a break down that is making it harder for him to deal with.

    General Commentthe poem at the end is dedicated to the death of simon's mother. Im not sure if the whole song therefore refers to his mums death.

    General CommentI always thought the line was "inaudible to everyone, everyone but me."
    So are these official lyrics?
