"Attached to the Fifth Story" as written by and Mark Thomas Kluepfel Johnson....
I can't,
I can't take it easily,
I won't,
I won't let it gravel me.
But I transgress,
Born into sin,
Born into current.

I can't comply to a compliment.
I won't quietly ask for it,
And the current still drags me in,
Slow down. (Slow down, down, down)

The pills won't make this go away;
Our trails stubbornly set in ways to revolt,
Try to repulse. (Ohh)

Quake in the middle of the night feeling the choke,
Your mind being pulled out of your head.

I won't swallow it logically.
I see,
I'm barraged by dollar signs.
Show me in to permanent sleep.

Quake in the middle of the night feeling the choke,
Your mind being pulled out of your head.
Noise fills your thoughts,
Inhaling to catch your breath with every heartbeat.
Swallow your pride,
The strychnine's benign,
Dissolve your cyanide,
Enchant all my lies.
Discretely confined,
Coagulate my designs.
Am I seeing so clear,
Original sin is a hoax.

    General CommentI was thinkin' maybe
    this is about suicide
    because of the
    the "Fifth Story" reference.
    The connotation of the "Fifth Floor"
    is the psych ward
    because that is where it is commonly located in hospitals.

    General CommentIt's such a pretty song. I love the vocals- so meloncoly.

    A patient in the mental institute can work for this song...but..
    ...I think maybe it has something to do with the "Orginal sin" -- which I don't know much about.

    It says in the begin of the song " born into sin, born into current" and in the end " orginal sin is hoax"
