Get out of the city if it hurts. You're too blind, move it over, try to get closer to the lifestyles of gluttons; seem so seamless and perfect. I've been the secret that you've been keeping...

Ears to the wall, eyes on the prize. See that you've made a mistake, and we all know what you've done here. Dear Interceptor, I've been waiting... Show me something. Hold the phone, we've found an answer. Full moons and minor keys to get there faster. Mirror, mirror, see this as clear as crystaline. Second hand interpretor. The spoken word for change.

Wait for me, I wanted to feel this safe. I can't hear you scream, hold the phone to make it better. I can't hear you...

Blood to the beat. This thirst of the Lion can't be quenched by cigarette strewn cubicle air. Dear diluted, while you're dreaming... hold the phone, we've found an answer. Full moons and minor keys to get there faster. Mirror, mirror, see this as clear as crystaline. Second-hand interpretor, deep into the Red we need a change.

Just look at this cardboard cut-out, this puppet that you've become. Let me be the first to acknowledge you've no pride, you've no purpose. It's so typical to think less is more when you're out of the lead. Don't hurt yourself. Settle for less. It's so typical to think less is more when you're out of the lead. Second hand interpretor, the spoken word for change.

Wait for me. I can't hear you. Hold the phone, we've found an answer.

    General Commentokay, i know what some of the song means, so here you go:

    "Get out of the city if it hurts. You're too blind, move it over, try to get closer to the lifestyles of gluttons; seem so seamless and perfect. I've been the secret that you've been keeping..."
    This means that the person he's talking about wants to be someone else because they're life seems so great, they wants a better life and they are doing what ever they have to to get there.
    "Ears to the wall, eyes on the prize. See that you've made a mistake, and we all know what you've done here. Dear Interceptor, I've been waiting... Show me something. Hold the phone, we've found an answer. Full moons and minor keys to get there faster. Mirror, mirror, see this as clear as crystaline. Second hand interpretor. The spoken word for change."
    Okay, this part i'm not so sure about, but I think that maybe that they made a huge mistake, such as sleeping with someone, or backstabbing someone, because they thought that they could get what they wanted faster and realized what they did wrong. William wants the person to show him that they are still themself, not what they wants themself to be. Its clear to him that the person has changed

    "Wait for me, I wanted to feel this safe. I can't hear you scream, hold the phone to make it better. I can't hear you..."
    This is the part i'm not so sure about.

    "Blood to the beat. This thirst of the Lion can't be quenched by cigarette strewn cubicle air. Dear diluted, while you're dreaming... hold the phone, we've found an answer. Full moons and minor keys to get there faster. Mirror, mirror, see this as clear as crystaline. Second-hand interpretor, deep into the Red we need a change."
    The person hasnt gotten what they wanted and hates it. they feel deluted, as he says.it doesnt satisfy them. She's still dreaming about what they could have. I think.

    "Just look at this cardboard cut-out, this puppet that you've become. Let me be the first to acknowledge you've no pride, you've no purpose. It's so typical to think less is more when you're out of the lead. Don't hurt yourself. Settle for less. It's so typical to think less is more when you're out of the lead. Second hand interpretor, the spoken word for change."
    They're like like everybody else now, and they're letting people order them. they're being told lies and it makes them give themself up. William tells them that they've become a "sheep" and like everyone else, that they've changed and he doesnt like it. He tells the person that they needs to lower they're standards, that they might not get exactly what they want.

    I'm probably wayyy wrong, but thats kinda how i see it.
    maybe he's talking to a girl about how she wants to be famous so badly?
    idk.

    take it or leave it.

    General Commenti roughly know what tis song means it fits perfect for my last relationship

    SierraJasey is almost dead on it heres the part you missed though

    "Wait for me, I wanted to feel this safe. I can't hear you scream, hold the phone to make it better. I can't hear you..."
    William is very confused, just like I am right now. He wants to be with her and feel "safe" and not have her cheat on him or whatever. but at the same time he wants them to feel intense pain just like he is but he cant know for sure if they are or not because they wont open up. "Hold the phone to make it better" i think thats saying to be more direct and not play so many mind games because he wants to "hear her scream", or feel hurt.

    thats what i got out of it anyway
