Late night walk,
you're not allowed to talk.
About shape and form,
about my surface rust.
I'll be sure not to sing your praise too loud,
and i'll be sure not to build you up too fast,
and i'll be sure not to say your name at all,
and i'll be sure not to build you up too fast.

You've got those sculptor's hands,
you've got those lonely eyes,
you're filled with reprimands,
inside iron casts, beneath steel masks.
and i'll be sure not to sing your praise too loud,
and i'll be sure not to build you up too fast,
and i'll be sure not to say your name at all,
and i'll be sure not to build you up too fast.

I feel all alone, I tell you on the telephone.
I feel all alone, I tell you on the telephone.

I'll be sure not to sing your praise too loud,
and i'll be sure not to build you up too fast.

Mid-day meal, super deal.
Crack and ship, things will kick.
I'll be sure not to build you up too fast.
and i'll be sure not to sing your praise too loud,
and i'll be sure not to say your name at all,
and i'll be sure not to build you up too fast.

    General Commenti was so suprised when takka takka wasn't even an artist on this site. THEY ARE AMAZING! and this is personally my favorite song by them. i definitely think this song is about a guy who is infatuated with a girl, yet she doesn't want anyone to know about their relationship. or that she was hurt by another relationship so she wants to take things slow, hence "i'll be sure not to build you up too fast". either which way, it's amazing!
