"Lurch" as written by and Greg Puciato Benjamin Allen Weinman....
I don't know your name
From my window
Do you lust for fame
Or forgiveness?
Well I'll give you everything you want
Well I'll give you everything you need
You won't be perfect so best to freeze you in this state
Go on home
You shouldn't be walking around on this day
Now you've stuffed your throat
You've walked on your burial ground
Oh, you'll draw the crowd
With honey porcelain skin and crystal baby blues
Your picture in my pocket, I'm obsessed with you
Oh sweetie there's no sense in crying
You're above them all
Barricade the door
You can hold my hand for comfort when you fall
You wear your skin so fresh
Your smell intoxicates
Little starlet

    General Commentsounds so cool.

    Yep I think it's definately about a stalker guy.
    I think it's about a typically pretty girl that treats people like crap..."do you lust for fame or forgiveness"

    "Now you've stuffed your throat
    You've walked on your burial ground"
    She's done something or is a bit of a bitch. That "burial ground" bit sounds like she's dug her own grave or something (socially i mean heh).

    "Oh you'll draw the crowd
    With honey porcelain skin and crystal baby blues
    Your picture in my pocket I'm obsessed with you"
    But he loves her anyway (or maybe thats why he loves her?)

    "Oh sweety there's no sense in crying
    You're above them all
    Barricade the door
    You can hold my hand for comfort when you fall"
    "Well I'll give you everything you want
    Well I'll give you everything you need"
    People may not like her or talk about her bacause of it, and he wants to make her feel better about it.


    This song kind of reminds me of American Beauty. How she's kind of average looking and people might not like her or she doesnt feel as cool as her friend, but this guy's still really obsessed with her.

    It also has something sinister going on, but that may be just because it's a DEP song. I don't fully get the whole "you're beautiful and i'ma kill you cause ima mental stalker!!!" vibe about it.

    General CommentK, I put the correct lyrics from the booklet up there.
    It's weird, the booklet says "I don't know your name, from my window," but in the song it sounds VERY clearly like "I don't know your name, but I know you."

    General CommentThe studio recording version sounds exactly like "But I know you" Just stating that it clearly does no sound like "From my window" :D :D
