Wash your heart off with hot water,
wash your mouth out with the maker's meat
Walk until you kindly wander,
just make sure you're wandering towards me
You may wake as king tomorrow,
if tonight you can just stay off the street,
where i know you feel free

This is not for your eyes to see,
so won't you please stop staring at me
I think you better find a way out of here,
'cause i don't think you'll like what i've become
I think you better find a way out of here,
'cause i don't think you'll like what i've become

No, I cannot explain how we always find shelter from the rain
When it gets cold and we get carried away,
Now we suffer from sunday-window pain
You know, we will not be friends tomorrow
if tonight we just get under the sheets, and just feel free

This is not for your eyes to see,
so won't you please stop staring at me
I think you better find a way out of here,
'cause i don't think you'll like what i've become
I think you better find a way out of here,
'cause i don't think you'll like what i've become

You know, it's getting very hard for me,
to look in the mirror with no reflection of my face
But that is not the hardest part for me,
it's just knowing i won't see the light of day

    General CommentThis song is sooo uhmazing. It really surprised me when I found out that people stopped listening to HIL because of Suck Out The Poison, but that was the c.d. that made me listen to them more. But anyways.....
    1.Schuylar has the stinkin best voice ever.
    2.The drums are uhmazing in EVERY song of theirs [go steve!]
    3.The lyrics are absolutely positively brilliant
    4.I really like how its not the same with every c.d. I mean consistancy is great, but when its like Hawk Nelson and EVERYTHING sounds the SAME. I think this new c.d. will bring back some of the old fans.

    this song is about change. also possibly about humility, being able to say he has changed, humbling himself. showing his weakness

    General Commenti think it's about a guy who turned into a vampire, and he's explaining it to a friend/lover.

    he tells her to stay off the street at night so she doesn't get attacked by vampires.

    "This is not for your eyes to see,
    so won't you please stop staring at me
    I think you better find a way out of here,
    'cause i don't think you'll like what i've become"
    he's telling her to get out of here because he's a vampire and he's ashamed of it, and maybe afraid he's going to bite her.

    "You know, it's getting very hard for me,
    to look in the mirror with no reflection of my face
    But that is not the hardest part for me,
    it's just knowing i won't see the light of day "
    Vampires can't see their reflection, and they can't come out at daytime either, and he finds it hard to accept this.

    well that's what i thought...

    General Commenti believe this is talking about a guy and how he has really changed over the years and how everyone has drifted away from him, yet the person he likes is wondering and he's trying to kind of lead her towards himself yet he doesnt want to show her his real side because he has changed from the person he was befor

    he also goes onto say that the more he acts like his new self the more the girl will stray from him.

    General CommentThere are a few lines I'm not really sure about when I listen to this, and I don't think they're quite right here either.

    "Wash your mouth out with the maker's meat" doesn't really make that much sense to me.. I think it might be "mead".. I don't really hear a hard T sound on the end, and it makes more sense that way to me. I could be wrong, but that's all I can think of.

    "Walk until you kindly wander"... It doesn't sound at all like "kindly", but I can't think of another word that makes any sense there and sounds like what he says.

    "Sunday window pains" I think it might be "sunny window pane/pain".. "Sunday" doesn't really make sense there at all, but sunny does and fits with the vampire theme.

    Any input would be appreciate.

    General CommentI think IAmLegend hit it on the head, the obvious is about a vampire and it is clear, but the meanings can be applied to many things. Maybe Schuylar just likes to apply other meanings to the supernatural. Either way, the song is grand. :D He Is Legend FTW.
