It's not the girl who we let tear through our core
It's the tear there before that made this girl into more

Skin, white sheets,
The dawn's printless snow
Nothing to define the difference
Just lit lips under a flame of curls
Many a prince has since us blown dark

But it's not the girl who we let tear through our core
It's the tear there before that made this girl into more
(x2)

We'll make mistakes in the wake of mistakes
But not wake again to this one
When looks fade we'll still reflect in verse
She'll dissolve to apparition
Slight from stark
Once light, now blown dark

But it's not the girl who we let tear through our core
It's the tear there before that made this girl into more
(x2)

She don't deserve love
She'll get what she's deserving of
We don't deserve love
We'll get what we're deserving of
I don't deserve love
You'll get what you're deserving of
We all get what we're deserving of

But it's not the girl who we let tear through our core
It's the tear there before that made this girl into more
(x2)

I was a duke last Halloween
This year, gonna be James Dean
Just wish I knew who we are in between

    General CommentQueen influence? Not really. The "We all get what we're deserving of!" part is more of a homage to Queen, but none of the rest of the song sounds anything like queen. Also, the lyrics posted here are terribly incorrect, it's "Core" not "Car".

    General CommentAccording to an interview with Shawn Harris in an issue of AP magazine, he says that people act more themselfs on halloween than any other time of the year. (which i agree) and the line in the song:

    Just wish I knew who we are in between

    He is kind of saying they act so different on halloween and if thats how they really are, who are they posing as every other day between halloweens?

    General CommentIt's not the girl who we let tear through our core
    It's the tear there before that made this girl into more

    Skin white sheets.
    The dawn's printless snow
    Nothing to define the difference
    Just licked lips under a flame of curls
    Many a prince has seen such splendor

    But it's not the girl who we let tear through our core
    It's the tear there before, that made this girl into more.

    We'll make mistakes
    In the wake of the mistakes,
    But not wake again to this one
    When looks fade, we'll still reflect inverse.
    She'll dissolve to apparition

    But it's not the girl who we let tear through our core
    It's the tear there before, that made this girl into more.

    She don't deserve love
    She'll get what she's deserving of
    We don't deserve love
    We'll get what we're deserving of
    I don't deserve love
    You'll get what you're deserving of
    We all get what we're deserving of


    But it's not the girl who we let tear through our core
    It's the tear there before, that made this girl into more.
    It's not the girl who we let tear through our core
    It's the tear there before, that made this girl into more.
    That made this....into more.

    I was a duke last Halloween, this year gonna be James Dean
    'Just wish I knew who we are in between.

    These are correct. (i agree with crashandburn btw. it was a great article.)

    General CommentThat last little bit really speaks to me:

    "I was a duke last Halloween
    This year gonna be James Dean
    Just wish I knew who we are in between"

    My interpretation was that on Halloween he's got these definite identities and he can say he's going to be this or that. But can the same be said for the time in between for anybody? I see it as referring to the uncertainty and general ambiguity associated with personal identity and one's sense of self. Can we say with equal certainty what we are in between?


    If that even makes any sense, that's just how I see it :)
