I'd sit on my hands if it'd do any good,
'cause what I do is not what I should
And I always say that I'm a stand up guy,
which implies that I can walk as well

The eighth ring of Hell is full of flatterers and panderers
I'm one or both, although it hardly matters
'cause when I leave, I'm gonna catch fire
in a terrible sky that from far away,
lights up the walls of your new kitchen
while you're busy knitting and forgetting

And now I guess it's time to say so long
But I'm not sure that I'm saying good bye, good bye
I'm saying goodbye (x2)
But I still want to try, I just can't decide
I don't wanna leave,
I miss your hands and your little feet
For several times, I've been driven to cheat upon you,
that's more than enough, there's just one thing to do

    General CommentIt's "flatterers and panderers".
    It's about a man who broke up with his girlfriend, and is now filled with regret. Beautiful song, beautiful guitars.

    Lyric CorrectionLike CharlotteLacrym said, it's definitely "flatterers and panderers". Also, I think, "for several times I've been driven to cheating on you", not that it matters much. "Upon" just sounds a little out of place.

    Pretty self-explanatory lyrics too, the line "I miss your hands and your little feet" gets me every time.
