Did you ever think about the words
Coming out your mouth?
People don't listen, no, they don't turn around
A useless sound
You keep saying more
It means less to me
Is it that you're so deaf
That you just can't see?

So you stop and take a look around
Something will get you off the ground
You try... Do you even know why?
Well it's hard to say but I'm pretty sure
Cos' last time I checked
Everything seemed to be in place

Did you ever think
That you're alone?
You better stop and think
Before it's all over

Please be quiet so I can sleep tonight
What should I do when nothing is right?
Man, I just don't know...

If you never learned to read what the signs say
How do you know you're going the right way?

Well, it's hard to say if it's not an act
I can't keep my distance
Everything turns to black
I've left myself open to attack

Did you ever think
That all the things yo say
Sound so naive?

Please shut up so I can sleep tonight
What am I supposed to do
When nothing feels right?

Fuck

Did you ever - think think think think think
I really don't think
You ever think

    General Commentmy latest favourite song by them (it changes everytime i listen to the album or go see them!) its just about people who say completly stupid things. i think probably about bands (or one in particular :s) who just sing about meaningless shit and sound really naive and dumb

    General Commentthis song is about beeing stoned...
    starting with laughs (the voice is absoletely stoned)

    "Did you ever think about the words

    when you are stoned you may talk realy silent or say stupid things that nobody cares about...and then you start thinking why there are not paying attention to you...

    "So you stop and take a look around
    Something will get you off the ground
    You try... "

    when u are stoned (realy stoned)
    it's hard to move..for example you may wanna get up but you can't and you are like : wtf i wanna move but i can't

    "Well it's hard to say but I'm pretty sure
    Cos' last time I checked
    Everything seemed to be in place"

    it's about the same but with your eyes you kinda loose contact with the world and everything seems diferent...maybe the colors, maybe the speed of the people around you..anyway you can't control ur vision quite well...

    "
    Please be quiet so I can sleep tonight
    What should I do when nothing is right?
    Man, I just don't know..."

    this is my favorite :P
    when u are really fucked you want everybody to shut up and just let you sleep...so this speaks for it self

    "Well, it's hard to say if it's not an act
    I can't keep my distance
    Everything turns to black
    I've left myself open to attack"



    well the distance is when u try to stare at something and it looks far away or it moves in and out... about the black it's when ur ayes are closing without u knowing it...
    and left myself open to attack is that you can't protect ur self even if they attack you...

    so this is pretty much all of it... i love listening to this song when i'm stoned..it makes me think...

    also the video clip:
    they are playing bascet ball..try palying bascetball stoned it's pretty fucking amazing :P
