"The More You Talk The Less I Hear" as written by Ben Jorgensen, Anthony Diionno, Peter James Decicco and Nash Breen....
You see me
Do I look okay to you?
Give me your hand
I'll shake it and shake it again
I'll smile 'till my face falls off my head
If it's good for you
It's good for me too

What did I say?
Why do you give a shit?
They're trying
To pry in
To my brain
But I'm cut on my knee
Down highways
'till I see
Your face

I just need to see you now
I just need to see your now
I don't care about anything else
I don't care about anything else

Their words are flying over my head
I'm trying here
I'm someone else again
You laugh and I smile back to humor you
If it's good for you
Then it's good for me too

What did I say?
Why do you give a shit?
They're trying
To pry in
To my brain
But I'm cut on my knee
Down highways
'till I see
Your face

I just need to see you now
I just need to see your now
I don't care about anything else

It's raining outside
There's a storm front on my back
Trying to keep
Trying to keep me away from you
A strangers up ahead
Holding up a knife
Trying to keep
Trying to keep me away from you

It's raining outside
There's a storm front on my back
Trying to keep
Trying to keep me away from you
The stars are falling down
Breaking up the road
Trying to keep
Trying to keep me away from you

I scream 'till I bleed
I scream stay away from me
You can't keep me back
Keep me back
I scream 'till I bleed
I scream stay away from me
You can't keep me back
Keep me back

What did I say?
Why do you give a shit?
I just need to see you now
I just need to see you now
I just need to see you now
I don't care about anything else
I just need to see you now
I don't care about anything else

    General CommentYes, it is very good. This is Machines first time working with music like Armor For Sleep. I think he did a great job. Along with Armor For Sleep of course.

    I think it is about loving someone and not letting anything getting in their way of getting to the person they love. Nothing else matters.

    General CommentI think this song is about how he's trying to see his ex-girlfriend, but something is stopping him, hence "there's strangers up ahead, holding up a knife
    trying to keep, trying to keep me away from you". All he wants is for his ex to see him but he can't because he's dead.

    General CommentTo me it seems this has some meaning with the story, but It really works before the story.

    The song starts he is a wreck. He wants to see the girl he is in love with, possibly just broke up with or has another guy or something. People are trying to convince him to move on. Stop thinking about her. "Why do you give a shit" either refering to him asking the people why they care about his relationship with her. Or what did he say that made her take intrest? It seems like the storm before Car Underwater.
