at the night school knight school
you doodle and you draw anything, anything
except what you're taught
you got a bad tooth, bad tooth
so you clench your jaw
and you concentrate, concentrate
on the aching cause it's keeping you awake

forecasters of disasters show proofs that show they're right
but you can block out anything
counting every blink of each florescent light
in every class on ever single last night

that's right

and then the tooth breaks, tooth breaks
you can bite down on your toungue
and keep a tight smile, tight smile
stitched across on your practiced face
like it's all stupidly, stupidly right
and when you take down your notes each night
and then go back and erase what they say
because they say forecasters of disasters want proof that they were right
they love to see you learn
but they'll have to wait for a long, long time
you can outlast anything
you can count every blink of each florescent light in every class
on every single last night

at the knight school
at the knight school
at the night school knight school
you doodle and you draw anything, anything
except what you're taught
you got a bad tooth, bad tooth
so you clench your jaw
and you concentrate, concentrate
on the aching cause it's keeping you awake

    General CommentVery beautiful song.

    When you're being stubborn about something in order to keep face, people will rub it in your face when they think you're wrong. This song is about the feeling afterwards, I think, when your "tooth breaks" (could be a metaphor for any "bad tooth" problem) and people who had been telling you to see a doctor ("forcasters of disaster") basically say "toldya so" and you try and erase their proof out of bitterness by smiling and not showing your broken tooth.

    There's more in there than that -- I haven't quite deciphered the knight/night school thing... night school maybe because sometimes people who attend night school are trying to "erase the proof" that they can't get an education... that would explain the whole doodling and drawing anything except what they're taught thing. But not all night school-ers are like that and I still don't get the Knight part.
