When I came home from the war
You just woke up from a nap

I wish that you were watching me
I wrote this song from the bottom of the sea

It’s just me
I throw down my arms I’m sorry
It’s just me

And I’ve been writing things down
I’ve been making speeches in my head
Don't try to hide the world from me
Cause telescopes reveal your secrets

It’s just me
Let go of my arms I’m sorry
It’s just me…

{At this point of the song, we have a “break-down”. This “break – down” is great. I’ll tell you why. It’s very musically ironic, you see. It sounds kind of bright and cheery, in a classical music kind of way. But it also has some minor notes thrown in there that give it drunken feel. Kind of like…ahh…a drunken clown in a hospital. Nice use of leading tones and such. Cross between Rivers Cuomo, Johnny Greenwood, and a Christmas Carol. Nicely done guys. My compliments to “the chef”. [Resume lyrics]}

And if you kiss me again, I swear I’ll put down the pen
I’ll tell you stories instead, about the world so big
We traveled distant lands, our feet were fixed in the sand
I had to quit the band and leave my head

It’s just me
I throw down my arms I’m sorry
It’s just me
You cut off my arms, you’re lovely
It’s just me
It’s just me…
