Tell me where you've seen my life
I look in your eyes and can only see my own complexion
Tell me where you've been my life
I've been watching you spring by summer fall when some one called


Tell me where you've seen my life
You've been biting my hands and knocking me down down to the ground
Tell me where you've been my life
I see only what you see, face who you face, be who you want to be

Clashing lies and clashing thighs
Clashing chasing changing minds
Tell me what you've seen tell me where you've gone
Tell me where you've been tell me what you saw

Clashing lies and clashing thighs
Clashing chasing changing minds
Tell me what you've seen tell me where you've gone
Tell me where you've been tell me what you saw

    General CommentThe beginning of this song reminds me of Status Quo's "Pictures of Matchstick Men."

    General CommentI think he is signing to his alter-ego in this song ('I look in your eyes and can only see my own complexion'), the voice in his head that comes and goes - perhaps self-doubt or his self-destructive side. On a musical side - this song is amazing! For sure the most catchy-pop moment of my favorite 2007 album 23 (23 is even moreso my favorite then Neon Bible or In Rainbows which is saying ALOT)

    General CommentLooks like someone who completely lost himself for another person, a lover (for the "clashing lies and clashing thighs" stanza).. He completely lives through her, and is absorving in every possible way.

    "I've been watching you spring by summer fall when some one called" --> he's been absolutely obsessed about for quite a while.
