Immersion in the wrong sorts.
This is my manifesto.
Tingly body.
Mind sunk deep within.
An arbitrary conversation.
Looking, seeing and feeling the wrongs.
A simplified overcoming of stature and belonging.
Nevermore, this overcompensated disillusion of downtime and no time of babbling.
I will set aside and overcome, with suds of porter in hand.
A mild-mannered genius has come to save me.
I seem to rise as morning draws near.
Pushing through fields of tracks (green and alive).
The dew draws close to my hung down body, feeling alone, but in the comfort of friends.
If I drew this close to perfection, every moment I would be the field and I would be the green.
A conflict of mind and matter.
I would live in harmony beside you.
But never alone

    General Commenti thought really long and hard about this one and what i've come up with is. i think it's about the creation of a persons schizophrenia. the creation being person who looses their mind do to being sad and lonely and creates the opposite alter ego they wish they could be but not as the with the personality that they currently have. sort a sicker less funny version of me myself and irene. some of it is unclear and a bit bazaar to me. i can't really tell wether or not to take some of the dialogue literally do to the fact that some of it only makes sense literally and some of it only makes sense metaphorically. that's what i think. i actually just think the song was written about the mentally ill sounding rhythms and guitars. lol. i'd love to ask the person who wrote it exactly in detail what it's about, but sadly i will never get to see them live because the've broken up. it sucks because i heard this band for the first time live in 2006, but didn't know their music. i actually met jase and had the opportunity to ask him these questions, but had only been a fan for like 30 minutes after i heard them for the first time. haha. maybe someday i'll come across that guy again.
