Too done up
I've said too much
it always seems like I do.

All because people don't learn
they'd much rather teach the truth
Better kept secret
and waiting on a better day.

When everything is self-destructive
I can't explain myself anyway.
So I'll make my apologies.
Just as soon as you turn your back
it's as bad, as bad can get.
Is anyone listening?

If I could, you know I would
hypocrisy that's understood.
It's meaningless at best
nothing makes sense.
Here right now I'll put this down.
I'll put this down to pull you in and hear the sound.
A living silhouette with nothing to give back...

I'm caught up.

    General CommentFirst of all, fbmkink is an idiot.

    This song, to me, is about the post-modern idea that man is self-destructing rather than effectively searching for the meaning of life because we have lost our ability to communicate and understand eachother.

    Great song, great band, beautiful album.

    General CommentThis song is what makes Manipulator work. Manipulator is comprised of material that sounds like their old work, material that is an obvious progression of their old sound, and material that draws heavily from other sources of inspiration. They have everything you could possible want. So, being not only a fall of troy fan, but a music fan, I enjoy this song and every other song on Manipulator.

    General CommentI had no idea if I was seeing the same band or not when Erak played this last show I saw them at. Very different and a very good sound, I like this song.
