This autumn's got me feeling kind of strange, but then it's just like every season
I'm smiling but leaning slightly towards deranged
My mind's committing total treason
Tim says you're so 99', burning your bridges
You're not scared, you're petrified
I am no different
I'm not alright about screwing you over
I'm not about to be right so then why should I try?
Blurring what's right & tugging on that line
Like thread from the collar you've got me by
Notions keep crawling back into my bones, competing like kids
Craving attention
Telling lies two at a time, burning your bridges
Catastrophes reflect on why I am no different
I'm not alright on thinking it over
I'm not about to be right so then why should I try?
It's a sham and a pinch and that's all there is to it
Who's to blame when it hits?
So let's forget it
You're not scared, so why am I?
Burning your bridges...
Outta sight, out of my mind every once in a while
I'm not alright about fucking you over
I'm not about to be right, so then why should I try?
It's a sham...

    General CommentShe's dumping a guy she still likes. She knows it's going to kill him, but she needs to be free "from the collar you've got me by." She feels terrible about it, feels like she's screwing him over and burning her bridges but knows it's something she has to do.

    It's not often you get to hear a song from this perspective of the breakup. It's even less common to hear one so good.
