I'm a stuttering fool
I'm just a tool with bad complexion
But did I mention -
I've lost my own attention
I've been deprived of all my senses
Shadows on the wall making faces
Voices in my mind leaving traces in my life
A simple four-sided cardboard stage with sock puppets and toothpick fences
I'm tired of not having enough money to buy new lenses
I've just been feeling...

So dense
So tense
So helpless and confused

My fuse is out and God is a noose
And I'll hang from this rope until I choke
And come back and haunt you as a ghost
Ooh-ooh...(that's a ghost)

And the days go by
And I'm still here, why am I here?
And the days go by
And I'm still here, why am I here?

And I'm still twiddling my thumbs
Staring at the crumbs as the ants carry them along on their backs with my
Legs crossed
And a dumb look upon my face
In lack of space
I'm a disgrace
Nothing more than a giant stain on this city
Everyone is so greedy
And I'm so needy
We're all afraid of rejection, but I need attention
'Cause I'm the kind of person
That's pretty on the inside
But you'll have to get to know me
Really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really (really) really really well (well...)

Listen to your conscious...
But don't do what it says...
Listen...

Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says
Listen to your conscious
But don't do what it says

    General CommentThis is a really good song and I really great band I'm surprised not many people have heard of them...they were in Gus Van Sant's "Last Days" as that one band that Blake walks by...Blake, played by Michael Pitt, in another good band called Pagoda...anyway.

    For me, this song is about not having much faith inyourself and being insecure about who you really are. But through it all, you still feel that if people got to know who you really are, they'd like you.

    I think I got most of the lyrics right, as I had to write them just listening to the song.
