Taking up my time again the one thing I can't stand
The coffee and the coversation never ends
When all I really need to find is one short clever line
To pinpoint my disgust it's always just too much or not enough

And I'm overwhelmed so I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me
But it never gets easier
No, it never get easier
No no no

Sink into myself again I can't hear a word you said
The syllables the sounds just aren't sentences
And all I really want to do its tear straight in to you
Explode unload a hell of insults until you finally get it
I'm sick to death

But I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me
But it never gets easier
No, it never get easier

A strong distaste for cofrontation leaves no room for self expression
Such a strain to remain so docile don't you know it all takes it's toll

But I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me
But it never gets easier

No, but I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me
But it never gets easier
No, it never get easier

Hell, it never get easier
All I wanna do it tear straight into you

    General Commentokay, so as everyone knows, this song was originally the bonus track on slr's debut album, but it went under the name of "costello". slr just tightened it up and raised the instrument back-up.

    i think they messed the title. they should have kept the title.

    General Commentoh my freaking goodness!!!! i love this song cuz it completely describes how i feel sometimes... its like when your depressed or tired or just unhappy about something and everyone wants to talk about all this crap and you just dont care and you cant make yourself care. and then it gets awkward cuz your not saying anything but they dont even notice that somethings wrong...they just keep on talking and talking and talking and talking. and you want to scream in their freaking face and yell and freak out at them until they finally get that your not as happy as they are...but instead you just sit there and nobody even notices...its pretty depressing....

    General CommentDefinitely about having to talk to someone you would really rather not have to talk to at all. The stress, the tension, the exasperation of being forced to hold polite conversation with someone you distain. Always reminds me of people who are forced into counseling XD. Or, for me, my mother (regardless of how teen-angst pathetic it may sound).

    General CommentI love this song. It's about often being in a situation of always having to say the right thing and never being able to say what you really need to. The frustration is expressed well in this song.

    General Commentjust my opinion, its probably not right, but it's what i think:

    Taking up my time again the one thing I can't stand
    The coffee and the coversation never ends
    When all I really need to find is one short clever line
    To pinpoint my disgust it's always just too much or not enough

    (I think he’s saying that he’s wasting his time. He wants to end whatevers going on quickly, but he can’t find the right words. Quick and painless, but nothing exactly comes out the way he thinks it should, so he keeps putting it off. Maybe he’s already tried to tell the person, and she didn’t understand exactly what he meant.)


    And I'm overwhelmed so I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons
    And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me
    But it never gets easier
    No, it never get easier
    No no no

    (He’s lying to whoever he’s with because it’s much less difficult then telling the truth. He hopes she believes him until he finds the right words. “It never gets easier” refers to lying and how its not making anything better.. it’s just prolonging the situation.)


    Sink into myself again I can't hear a word you said
    The syllables the sounds just aren't sentences
    And all I really want to do its tear straight in to you
    Explode unload a hell of insults until you finally get it
    I'm sick to death

    (He doesn’t want to hear what the other person is saying. He wants to completely destroy this person; however he’s better than that. So he still just keeps waiting for the moment and words to come to him or for the other person to catch on and slowly back away.)


    A strong distaste for cofrontation leaves no room for self expression
    Such a strain to remain so docile don't you know it all takes it's toll

    (He’s still having problems making himself clear.. and he doesn’t want to hurt the person, because she doesn’t deserve it, however he cannot stand her.)


    Hell, it never get easier
    All I wanna do it tear straight into you

    (He’s getting frustrated that she’s not understanding.)
