Excuse Me,
I'd Like to Introduce Me.
Explain Me,
The Best That I Can.

I'm Makeless,
Like Crossing Lines Off A List.
A Line Marked Out,
Means I am Closer to Complete.

I'm Quite Quite Unrare at Nights,
My Mouth Tightens Up.
I Don't Like Small Words,
With People Who Are Dressed Up.

I'm Always Cold,
My Blood Strolls Through me Slow
Limbs to Fend For Themselves.

My Head Hurts,
Sometimes Don't Know Why It Hurts.
But When It Does,
Its the Only Time I Take A Drug.

I Have A Brother Whose A Drunk For 12 Years, He's Blacked out,
Too Much to Clean Up.

My Father,
We Don't Talk.
Or When He Calls,
I Hang Up.

My Other Brother's Got A Baby,
Who I've Seen Once.
I'm Not Even Sure Where He Lives.

Its Hard For People To Get Close To Me When I'm So Distant.


Excuse Me,
I'd Like To Introduce Me.
Explain Me,
Explain Me.


Bought A House,
And I Live With My Love.
She Left Her City,
To be Wiht Me.

I'm Gone,
All The Time.
And She Is Thinking,
Pretty Hard About Leaving Me.

    General CommentThis is probably one of the most substantial of his songs. I wonder if it's actually autobiographical. If so, sad stuff. Anyhow, he's basically just saying that he'd like the opportunity to open up to somebody, to people in general. Near the end of the song he mentions how he keeps himself at a distance, and perhaps that's the reason his relationships, namely those with his family, are just broken.

    My InterpretationThese are the actual lyrics, sent to me by Joel:

    Excuse me, I’d like to introduce me
    Explain me, the best that I can
    I make lists, I like crossing lines off the list
    A line marked out means I’m closer to complete
    Don’t like things, I only buy what I am needing
    I rarely buy gifts for anyone for anything
    I’m quite quiet on the rare out nights
    My mouth tightens up
    I don’t like small words with people
    Who are dressed up
    I’m always cold, my blood strolls through me slow
    Leaving limbs to fend for themselves
    my head hurts sometimes, don’t know why it hurts
    but when it does, It’s the only time I take a drug
    I have a brother, who’s been drunk for twelve years
    He’s blacked out too much to clean up
    My father, we don’t talk, when he calls I hang up
    My other brother’s got a baby who I’ve seen once
    I’m not even sure where he lives
    It’s hard for people to get close to me
    When I’m so distant
    Excuse me, I’d like to introduce me
    Explain me, explain me
    Oh, I bought a house and I live with my love
    She left her city to be with me
    I’m gone all the time
    And she is thinking pretty hard about leaving me
