it's a fact, I know it
there's somethings I can't live down
yes indeed, I've blown it
it's a black eye on the gang

no one's gonna take the pair of scissors
stuck in my arm from you
no one's gonna try to repair the
messages that you pushed me to

look out, falling boy comes down
he's about to take you out (oh, everybody now)
as the wind is screaming through his ears
it's a very private sound (oh, everybody now)

no one likes me when I'm shy
caught up in a bet I've lost again
caught up in the trap I don't wanna be in no more

you forget I'm awake
I forget I'm awake
you forget I'm awake
I forget I'm awake

I want to breathe in blue
I want to breathe in blue
I want to breathe in blue
(green as the sky from under the pond)
I want to breathe in blue
I want to breathe in blue
(clear, so it must be a mirage)
I want to breathe in blue
I want to breathe in blue
(green as the sky from under the pond)
I want to breathe in blue
I want to breathe in blue
(I wanna breathe in blue, too, may I?)
I want to breathe in blue

    General CommentI interpret it as someone who has some kind of insecurity maybe because of a past experience that they can't seem to forget or live down that keeps coming back up in the present. the lines:

    no one's gonna take the pair of scissors
    stuck in my arm from you
    no one's gonna try to repair the
    messages that you pushed me to

    makes me think this--it's something that the person has to deal with because no one's gonna fix it for them and no one can really, it's their own problem.

    Also, the part "you forget I'm awake/ I forget I'm awake" suggests too that this person who is having the conflict is walking around like he/she is dreaming or dead, and the person thinks they are too--again the whole thing about there being something wrong that the person has to fix within their self.

    sidenote: the "I wanna breathe in blue" lines are the best. I imagine the air from my breath literally being blue (though that's probably not what it's about) and that would be awesome!

    General CommentHo Hum means "boring and dull: routine" according to answers.com. Maybe the "I forget I'm awake" bit could mean his life is the same old routine everyday to the point he feels his life is a dream. He's wasting time just living, he's "caught up in a trap [he] doesn't want to be in no more." His only way out of the trap is to kill himself.
