Where the sidewalks ends, a new life begins
With a better taste in my mouth
But that sidewalks far
And my eyes feel raw
So, I spit the bitter taste out
I'm the worst of kids when it comes to this
As the drink falls to the floor
I just took and took 'til I shook and shook
And I couldn't take take anymore

Maybe you'll change me
You'll set me on the straightest path
Well baby you can't save me
I am uncaged
I am uncaged
I am uncaged
I am uncaged

It's the poems you write
It's the lines you recite
It's the pain your voice
It's the songs and the noise
It all is truly terrible
All of it's truly terrible

Maybe you'll change me
You'll set me on the straightest path
Well baby you can't save me
I am uncaged
I am uncaged
I am uncaged
I am uncaged

Bury for a cost befalls another one
Said here's some pills
We'll get them filled
We will walk it off

Maybe you'll change me
You'll set me on the straightest path
Well, baby you can't save me
I am uncaged
I am uncaged
I am uncaged
I am uncaged

    My InterpretationI interpreted these lyrics as sort of, when he began with a new life, he just gave up. He didn't know how to handle happiness, and it just isn't who he was.
    "Where the sidewalks ends, a new life begins
    With a better taste in my mouth
    But that sidewalks far
    And my eyes feel raw
    So, I spit the bitter taste out "

    It seemed as if when he finally did start off new, it was too much to change his habits.

    "Maybe you'll change me
    You'll set me on the straightest path
    Well, baby you can't save me
    I am uncaged"

    I love those lines the best, because he's saying how much he will change for the better, but he is still the same person who is out of control, and can't escape the bad he is buried in.

    "It's the poems you write
    It's the lines you recite
    It's the pain your voice
    It's the songs and the noise
    It all is truly terrible
    All of it's truly terrible"

    That verse really held together the lyrics, when he was describing the empathy he felt for everything, he didn't want to 'go on' in life. He just saw everything as a black hole, and just swallowed pills to make things better.

    Basically, this song is about a guy who starts off new, but doesn't have the determination to follow through, because he feels like no one can save him because he has made so many mistakes.
