please don't move too soon, too sudden
I might have to do something I don't want too, do you?
I don't think so
so please just act slow
this will all be over before you know
(we're trying to help you)

my eardrums pound, I'm trying so hard to not shoot
the glorious sound, no one move around

you would feel the same way

    Lyric Correction"and be slow
    but not too slow
    too sudden
    i don't have to
    do something
    i don't want to
    do you?
    i don't think so
    so please just act slow
    this will all be
    over before
    you know
    you know

    we're trying to help you

    my eardrums pound
    i'm trying so hard to not shoot
    the glorious sound
    no one move around

    you
    would
    feel
    the same way"

    "don't love too soon"

    General CommentI agree in that aspect. I thought adding the thing about how cell phones inpact relationships was brilliant. You know..texts and all.

    General CommentJust checked idiotfan.com, their lyrics are similar to mine:

    please don't move too soon.
    too sudden. i might have to
    do something i don't want to.
    do you?
    i don't think so, so please just act slow
    this will all be over before you know.

    General CommentThe last posted lyrics are definitely the ones that go best with the song. That's what I got out of it.

    The robbery interpretation makes the most sense. Open register, it fits.

    General Commentive always thought it was

    my eardrums pound
    im trying so hard to
    not shoot the glorious down

    so then its like..trying not to put someone down, ruin their hopes and dreams..or more literally shoot someone glorified..like a cop

    but listening to it again it could be sound or down in places, i think id prefer it to be down

    Link(s)The song is about feeling trapped. About rushing in without seeing the consequences and then being forced to either hurt others or surrender to the mess you created for yourself. Trying to find a way out. But all you can hear is the pounding in your own ears, the rush of emotion enhancing the sound, drowning out all others.seobizonline.com/…">search engine optimization |

    General CommentAgain I must offer some suggestions for lyrics that make a little bit more sense.

    Blew your sole move too soon
    Do yourself, I don't have to
    Do you suffer? I don't want to
    Do you?
    I don't think so, so please just act slow
    This'll all be over before
    You know... you know

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound
    I'm trying so hard
    To not shoot
    A glorious sound
    No other around

    Blew your sole move too soon
    Do yourself or I might have to
    Do you suffer? I don't want to
    Do you?
    I don't think so, so please just act slow
    This'll all be over before
    You know... you know

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound
    I'm trying hard to
    Not shoot
    A glorious sound
    No other around

    You
    Would
    Too
    The same way
    You
    Would
    Feel
    The same way

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound
    I'm trying hard to
    Not shoot
    A glorious sound
    No other around

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound
    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!
    I'm trying hard to
    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!
    Not shoot
    A glorious sound
    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!
    No other around
    ____________________________

    Hearing the lyrics this way, one can imagine a robbery-turned-hostage-situation (robbery = open register) with the police outside telling him he blew it, he put himself there, and if he takes responsibility they won't have to hurt him. They're yelling "We're trying to HELP you!" and the gunman is trying hard not to shoot, and at one point yells "You would do the same, you would feel the same, if you were in my position!" But of course this imagery is used as an analogy for something else...

    The song is about feeling trapped. About rushing in without seeing the consequences and then being forced to either hurt others or surrender to the mess you created for yourself. Trying to find a way out. But all you can hear is the pounding in your own ears, the rush of emotion enhancing the sound, drowning out all others.
