"Subconscious" as written by and Ani Difranco....
On one hand I'm walking
The way that I do
Looking like I'm lost in thought
But I'm looking for you

It's so subconscious
The way that I feel
Too bad my subconscious life
Is the more real

And I ain't in the best shape
That I've ever been in
But I know where I'm going
And it ain't where I've been
I know where I'm going
And it ain't where I've been

Some kind of anxiety
Has gotten hold of my heart
And I just want to run home
When I feel it start

Plastic bottles of water
Sealed windows, forced air
And gazillions of cell phones
Beaming through my (h)air

And I ain't in the best shape
That I've ever been in
But I know where I'm going
And it ain't where I've been
I know where I'm going
And it ain't where I've been

I'm tossing and turning
Between sleepless dreams
And I'm poised on the edge of
What it all means

So I turn my back
And I spread my arms wide
And I let myself fall in
Way deep inside

And I ain't in the best shape
That I've ever been in
But I know where I'm going
And it ain't where I've been
I know where I'm going
And it ain't where I've been

    General CommentLike, she's somewhat aware of her feelings but she wont allow herself to go in the direction that she's afraid of.. Shes not fully aware of herself.. or it's all incomplete and shes doing it all on purpose because she knows what may happen and she won't take that step or risk to take.. But that's the sort of belief i have in a way of this.. I meann, i have a few other views about it; but putting it into words is sort of hard.


    Because she won't allow her self to have what she wants because she's
