"My Life Flashed Before My Eyes" as written by and Ross Anthony Jarman Ryan James Jarman....
The wrong time, the wrong place
Your talent scouts my lonely face
Of all the things I can't replace
Your talent scouts my lonely face, yeah

Well, it's alright, although I know you lied
I don't mind, oh
It's alright, although I know you lied
I don't mind, oh

The wrong time, the wrong place
Your talent scouts my lonely face
Of all the things I can't escape
Your talent scouts my lonely face, yeah

Well, I'm alright, although I know you lied
I don't mind, oh
If my life flashed before my eyes
Do you think I'd mind? No

And now, you don't need mine
You let us down, you watched us die
Now, I hang around
With people I don't even know

Well, it's alright, although I know you lied
I don't mind, oh

The wrong time, the wrong place
(It's alright, flashed before my eyes)
Your talent scouts my lonely face
(Do you think I'd mind? Yeah)

    General CommentWHAT! First comment!?! I thought Our Bovine Public was best off the new album, but My Life Flashed Before My Eyes is in close contention. This is a brilliant song, but I had really hard time trying to decipher these lyrics. I'm pretty sure the song has something to do with judging, and that he doesn't care what people think of him. You know how there are those people who think their word is law and that what they say about people can make or break a person's reputation; I know i'm flipping the lyrics around but; Do you think I'd mind if my life flashed before my eyes, NO!. He doesn't care what people say or think.

    General CommentYeah, I pretty much agree with 2quik2silver. Someone that's talented (or perhaps this is meant sarcastically, idk) is judging him by looking at the things he can't replace or can't escape. Apparently, whoever is judging him must do so superficially by trying to gather all of this information from his facial expressions. In the end, they decide they don't need his talent. Although, I'm not sure what they lied about. Anyone else have further insight?
