I’ve been trying to shape up
Shape up and raise hell
But it’s so hard to wake up
‘Cause baby, I ain’t well

This is my head exploding from the weight of the thoughts inside
These are my thoughts escaping through the ventilation-shaft
Though my words weight a ton they can hardly ever come out right
This is an emergency call ‘cause my head explodes tonight

I’m trying to shout
But no sound comes out
This is my voice signing off
I’m trying to shout
But no sound comes out
This is my heart signing off

I’ve been trying to catch up
Catch up with the fuzz
But it’s so hard to wake up
And even catch the buss

Well this is my concentration leaking out into the drain
These are my lungs breaking down from too many cigarettes
And though my words could save the world, they never come out right
This is an emergency call ‘cause I haven’t seen the light

Only cowards need help to get by
Only cowards need friends to survive

    General CommentWow, I'm the first to comment for this song ^_^. Well, this was the first song I heard from Disco Ensemble and it got me to listen to other songs from them. Here are a couple of things that I tried to interpret(they might be obvious. Oh Well):

    "This is my head exploding from the weight of the thoughts inside
    These are my thoughts escaping through the ventilation-shaft
    Though my words weight a ton they can hardly ever come out right
    This is an emergency call ‘cause my head explodes tonight"
    ~The two lines starting with "This" and the "These" are saying that he has all these things he could say although he never does, so he is going crazy. Then the line "Though my words...." means that his words has a lot of meaning and they never come out the way he wants it.

    "I’m trying to shout
    But no sound comes out
    This is my voice signing off
    I’m trying to shout
    But no sound comes out
    This is my heart signing off"
    ~Again, he wants to say a lot of things, but could never bring himself to and he just shuts off, and has a lot of inner battles with himself(sounds kind of like me).

    "Well this is my concentration leaking out into the drain
    These are my lungs breaking down from too many cigarettes
    And though my words could save the world, they never come out right
    This is an emergency call ‘cause I haven’t seen the light"
    ~Now, his concentration is leaving him and it seems he is slowly dying(probably not physically, but emotionally and socially) and he hasn't found anyone or anything to save him.

    "Only cowards need help to get by
    Only cowards need friends to survive"
    ~He is also likely to be stubborn or doesn't feel like he needs help from anyone(Although I sometimes follow the first line's mentality, I don't know about the second line). But I'm not too sure on this one though.

    Sorry if I completely interpreted this wrong, but this is what the song means to me and I wanted to share it. Even though I don't think that many people will see this. If you say something back that is mean or insulting(unless you're just helping me figure out this or any other of the songs) I will probably just laugh it off or whatever seems more fun at the moment. I'm always looking for a good laugh :).

    General CommentI think he has to keep things in to himself, because other people don't endure those things. It would be best for all that he could keeps these secrets and feelings inside, but that is impossible, he has to let it all out.

    General Comment"I try to shout but nothing comes out"
