Hey misdirected
What is this shit?
Can you tell me
This -
You've magnified everything
Swollen if countenance nears your reach
Tell me -
You think you can tell me who I am?
Well, I am numb to you
That's enough, I've heard enough
Just go away

Been busy have you?
Where have you been?
I've been worried
Sick
You've borrowed my nightingale
Return it! That something can twice prevail
Show me -
You think you can show me where I am,
Well I am lost to you
That's enough, I've heard enough
Just go away

You are no longer welcome
I've bough out your usual seats
Your service is obsolete
If in this vein I should call you home

Misdirected
Ah...

You're on your own dear,
How does it feel?
Can you measure
This -
You quantify everything
With numbers, pulled out from when panic speaks
Tell me?
I don't think you can tell me who I am
Well I am numb to you,
Yes I am lost to you
That's enough I've heard enough
Just go away

    General CommentCaptain Obvious says this is a typical breakup song in a situation where she feels like she's been misdirected into believing this person knows her, so she feels obligated to get out of this relationship, and also adds a strong touch of bitter resentment over it. You get the feeling it was meant to be a "suprise, lover, I HATE YOU BYE! Now go, kthx."

    You are no longer welcome
    I've bought out your usual seats

    Also implies that she already has a new lover lined up, just to further drive home that it is really over.
