I do not want to explain
and I'm not going to
I wanna get high on something
Go dancing with someone
turn our backs to the battle
I didn't see anything
nothing worth remembering

And I do not want to
to have no choices

In between me and any
any true rejoicing
I wanna forget this reckoning
proud and disbelieving
get the hell out of Denton
with the privilege of everything
alive truly in everyone

Live truly in everyone
live truely in everyone
live truly in everyone

    General Commenti like this song. because i can relate a lot to it.

    because. uhmm.

    "And I do not want to have no choices i n between me and any true rejoicing"
    i really don't want to hold myself back from being truly happy. and i think i do that a lot. i kind of over complicate things. and then can't live outside of anything. and then i become kind of bitter.
    and if i could just... live. simply. and just... be. sometimes. i think i'd be a much happier person.

    and then he says... "get the hell out of Denton" and "forget this reckoning."
    so... to me thats like starting over. which is something i'm really .. longing for right now.
    new beginnings and new people. new experiences and... a new soul?

    and i really like " alive truly in everyone"
    because. uhm... i dont' know.
    it might not really mean this...but it always reminds me of how important it is to look for yourself in other people.
    in order to understand them. and help them.
    and love them.
    because you have a little more insight into why they do what they do. and how you might do the same thing.
    even if it's stupid.
    and you're just a more...merciful person that way.

    and mercy is one of the most beautiful things in the world.
    maybe the most beautiful.

    and the whole beginning to me, is about leaving things behind.

    which, a lot of times, means forgiving people and moving on.

    and as far as the "i do not want to explain" thing.
    it's kind of like... not dwelling on it.
    you're forgiven, and i'm leaving all of this.
    and i'm not going to tell you why --- because it would just dredge up old junk that's stupid and dumb and over.

    and the imagery of dancing with someone .... dancing away from your past/"the battle"
    ... high on something. anything. even if it's just the idea of. finally getting away.

    just... dancing away. into something completely new.

    General Commentwell said loveinvincible.

    "I do not want to explain
    and I'm not going to"
    To me the first two lines are the most powerful part of the song,
    i mean the whole song in it's self is powerful and wonderful, yet these lines hit me the hardest.
    It could be looked at in any perspective but to me I think it’s along the lines of choice.
    The song almost revolves around the choices of what he does and doesn’t have.. or need and wants to have?
    Not to say that is completely right but it’s something I recognize. lovely.
