I twitch my mouth and grind my teeth
I roll my eyes into a light that's on
A feeling I adore
Clap your hand and stop your feet
Roll around like in a baptist dream
A feeling I ignore

Get off
This doesn't seem right
That you and I are the same thing every time
A blank stare
A glance between eyes
And you and I are the same thing every time
And I'll fade away 'cause I won't take those lies

I twitch my mouth and grind my teeth
I roll my eyes into a light that's on
A feeling I adore
But I forgot it
I forgot it
I forgot it
The feeling I ignore

Get off
This doesn't seem right
That you and I are the same thing every time
A blank stare
A glance between eyes
And you and I are the same thing every time
And I'll fade away 'cause I won't take those lies

I'm on the paths all walked before
I'm growing tired of this and bored
Now I forget all those who need
Trapped in my own, closed off in grief

But if I get by in my life I'd like to
Share my life with you
To grow beside you in love true

And I forget all those who bleed
Trapped inside all I have ever sought
And I wait for you to see
And I forget when on my knees
Tired and worn just like a vagabond
You're there to help me grieve

    General CommentI tried my best to get these lyrics right, I added notes on parts I was pretty unsure of. I'm almost positive anything with a question mark near it is incorrect, so feel free to send in corrections. Parts of this were pretty hard to transcribe. Great song though :D

    General CommentI Twitch My Mouth and Grind My Teeth
    I Roll My Eyes into a Light Thats on
    A Feeling I Adore
    Clap Your Hands and Stomp Your Feet
    Roll Around Like in a Baptist Dream
    A Feeling I Ignore

    Get Off
    This Doesnt Seem Right
    That You and I are the Same Thing Every Time
    A Blank Stare
    A Glance Between Eyes
    And You and I are the Same Thing Every Time
    And Ill Fade away Cause I wont Take Those Lies

    I Twitch My Mouth and Grind My Teeth
    Roll My Eyes into a Light Thats on
    A Feeling I Adore
    But I Forgot it
    I Forgot it
    I Forgot it
    The Feeling I Ignore

    Get Off
    This Doesnt Seem Right
    That You and I are the Same Thing Every Time
    A Blank Stare
    A Glance Between Eyes
    And You and I are the Same Thing Every Time
    And Ill Fade away Cause I wont Take Those Lies

    Im on the Paths all Walked Before
    Im Growing Tired of This and Bored
    Now I Forget All Those Who Need
    Trapped in My own, Closed Off in Grief

    But If I Get By in My Life Id Like To
    Share My Life With You
    To Grow Beside you in Love True

    And I Forget All Those Who Bleed
    Trapped Inside All I Have Ever Sought
    And I Wait For You To See
    And I Forget When on My Knees
    Tired and Worn Just Like a Vagabond
    Youre There to Help me Grieve

    General CommentThis is a very dense song... But I'll try anyways.

    the speaker seems to have lost someone close to him, and now he's closing himself off to the world. someone comes to him to help him cope with the grief, but at the moment he refuses to open himself.

    Well, that's all I can think of. Someone else take a shot.

    General Commenti find this song very sexual.
    wanting something, but knowing its purely physical.
    and knowing that you have to end it.

    General CommentI would say that he's in a relationship that is based soley on sex and he doesn't really love the girl. He wants to end it because of this but he doesn't want to lose her because he believes that, if given the chance, they can fall in love, and not just have it based on sex. Thats what it says to me, anyway.
