i hear you starting up again
i see you standing on the deck
i hear your voice start to carry
i see the veins throbbing in you neck

and i know what you're saying
and i know what you're saying it for
but i'm not listening
i'm not listening anymore

and i see you come toward me
i see the sun slimb down the sky
i hear your voice getting faster and louder
i see a stranger in your eyes

and i know what you're saying
and i know what you're saying it for
but i'm not listening
i'm not listening anymore

    General CommentAnother moment in the lives of the Alpha Couple. It's that moment when the one person is yelling and trying to pick a fight, and the other just doesn't even care enough to fight back. They've had the same argument so many times and the love has drained out of the relationship. They're not the same people now, so why bother going on? Why listen anymore?

    General CommentCatalina is an island off the coast of Southern California. The Alphas originally started in California, lived in Nevada for a bit, and then ended up in Tallahassee; since this takes place in CA, it's early in their relationship.

    I think the Alphas are taking a boat trip to Catalina Island ("I see you standing on the deck") and the Alpha Male (or both of them) have had a bit too much to drink. He's started to yell at her and cause a scene and she's not listening. It's the beginning of the end.
