Thin Layer Lyrics
Through a thin layer of rubber and a thick rusted armor of drunken lust
I think when our clothes were on we had a different image of
What this was supposed to be
My buzz allowed me to slip into you more comfortably
Here's what I intended, and here is the truth(x2)
The soundtrack to our meeting fills the awkward spaces between our strained breathing
And the only thing between, between the two of us, is your blood and our sweat
I can taste the cigarettes on your tongue while exchanging spit
Here's what I intended, and here is the truth(x2)
Here is the truth (x6)
Now disguise this whining with melody, and I hope that it leaves, leaves you intrigued
And I hope you feel, you feel what I did at the time that this was conceived
Well, the silence is pleasing, between our strained breathing, now it's over with
This is not what I intended

    General Commenthere's the song lyrics from the album:

    through a thin layer of rubber and a thick rusted armor of drunken lust, i think when our clothers were on we had a different image of what this was supposed to be

    here's what i intended.
    here is the truth.
    so here's what i intended.
    here is the truth

    the soundtrack to our meeting fills the awkward spaces between our strained breathing. and the only thing between, between the two of us is your blood and our sweat.

    so here's what i intended.
    here is the truth.
    and here's what i intended.
    here is the truth

    here is the truth.
    here is the truth.
    here is

    i'll disguise this whining with melody. i hope that it leaves, leaves you intrigued. i hope you feel, you feel what i did at the time that this was...

    well the silence is pleasing, between our breathing, now its over with. this is not what i intended

    General CommentI haven't heard this song live yet, but are the lines
    "My buzz allowed me to slip into you more comfortably"
    and
    "I can taste the cigarettes on your tongue while exchanging spit"
    from a live version that's hopefully available somewhere?

    Anyway, I definitely think this song is, as someone else mentioned, about sex that's most likely a one-night stand, or at least something that wasn't supposed to become complicated.

    I sort of thought this song was about two -exes hooking up after their relationship had been over for a while, and maybe the "different image of what this was supposed to be" was that they thought they could just have sex like old times, but it involved more than they'd bargained for (probably because they were drunk and weren't able to really think things through).

    General Comment"the only thing between, between the two of us, is your blood and our sweat"

    why would she be bleeding? maybe it was her first time and that's why he feels guilty.
