completely colorblind
these red lights are going unseen
far behind with words unsaid
you know they're always obscene
'cause my ears
they bled before
i need to let them heal

she fell out
her broken legs won't let her walk away
from this town that couldn't give a single shit either way
and her fears
they bled before she's convinced that they're real

what are you looking for
are you looking for something more
it's not me, it's not me

lost her way from everything
she swore she knew a friend
run away from start to finish
though it never ends
in her mind
she is blinded by all she sees

close your eyes
just pretend the bullet isn't there
no surprise
no need to pretend that no one really cares
but in her eyes you will find the very best in me

what are you looking for
are you looking for something more
it's not me, it's not me

when did it unwind
are you prepared for what you'll find
it's not me, it's not me

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl who has feelings for David and he doesnt return them and she really doesnt know what she wants, so he is asking her what are you looking for? its not me

    General CommentTo me this song is about a long term relationship thats going south, yet they have been together so long, and are just ignoring all the signs (hence redlights going unseen). or in denial that they are fading apart. Its like she wants to move on or is searching for something more in her life but her fears are keeping her from actually doing anything about it (her broken legs won't let her walk away). He doesn't understand why she isn't happy, and what she thinks she is missing (what are you looking for, are you looking for something more?) and he is telling her with (its not me) that if you keep searching you will eventually realize that its me that you aren't satisfied with. (or i can't be what you want me to be.) Then sounds like the 3rd verse she tried to leave him and said she was going to stay with a friend to clear her head and figure out what she wanted. Then the "where did it all unwind" he is reflecting on where they started losing it, cause at one time they were so happy and he doesn't understand how it has come to this. and with the "are you prepared for what you'll find" is saying that if she looks close enough it will be obvious that that they're relationship is dying. because he is not who she wants him to be...and he won't ever be.

    General CommentYou can't go by the way the lyrics are typed. Honestly. As with poetry you go by the way they phrase it. With the third verse it would be "Lost her way from everything she swore she knew..." As in she's lost. The stuff that she KNEW (or thought she knew) isn't what she thought. And at the beginning... "She fell out, her broken legs won't let her walk away from this town that won't give a single shit either way..." That is exactly how I feel about my life. I could leave, I could die, and no one would really notice. Yeah, maybe a few, but in general no one would "give a single shit either way." That is one of my new phrases. Someone asks what I want to do... "I couldn't give a single shit either way." Its saying "I not only don't give a shit what happens, I don't give a SINGLE shit."

    Gotta love the Chef.
