I've done hell to my safe holding
I've held my blood in such low standing
I blame these sad things on me

Cut a smile in my face so you'll intake some fleeting comfort

Close in

Contaminate your world with my touch
But you brandish the weapon of passive aggression

It seems like your idea of perfect
And mine are perfectly in line
So let's be enemies
To see the sun go away

Would you think I'd let you in?
I've grown to suffer you lashing out at me
To see the sun go away

Don't deny my tolerance
Don't take away these sad things from me
And that ain't nothing
You should see what I'd do to me

Cut a smile in my face so you'll intake some fleeting comfort
You've built a wall of beauty to help tolerate any discomfort

From...

Your idea of perfect
And mine are perfectly in line
So let's be enemies
To see the sun go away

Would you think I'd let you in?
I've grown to suffer you lashing out at me
I will stand alone

Your idea of perfect
And mine are perfectly in line
So let's be enemies
To see the sun go away

My idea, unless you're blind is
Having you far away

    General CommentI've looked online at a lot of places for lyrics to this song, because I believe what I hear is different from what I read. To me, it sounds like he's saying "contaminate your world with my touch" and during the chorus it sounds like Billy is saying "Your idea of perfect and mine aren't perfectly in line so let's be enemies."

    Maybe I'm crazy, but I feel like that's what he's saying, among other things.

    General CommentCool song, one of the best on their album, although I'd love to hear how it'd sound with Maynard on vocals...

    General Commentit seems like its a couple that hate each other(im perfect, your perfect,lets be enemies) but cant stand the thought of being alone (you should see what id do to me) so they stay together (see the sun go away)
    just my 1st impression.

    General CommentI agree with Geeeoff. Also, should'nt it be "Cut a smile in my face so real it takes some fleeting comfort?" He's got a very unique vocal style and everything, but I can clearly make out the word "real" not "you'll." "So you'll intake some fleeting comfort" makes no sense at all.

    Lyric CorrectionA fair bit of these lyrics is completely wrong. This is my corrected version - still not completely sure about that last line, but the rest of it is pretty much right.

    I've done hell to my safe holding
    I've held my blood in such low standing
    I blame these sad things on me

    Cut a smile in my face so you'll intake some fleeting comfort

    Close in

    Contaminate your world with my touch
    But you brandish the weapon of passive aggression

    It seems like
    Your idea of perfect in mind
    I'm perfectly in line
    So let's be enemies
    To see the sun go away

    Would you think I'd let you in
    I've grown to suffer you lashing out at me
    To see the sun go away

    Don't deny my tolerance
    Don't take away these sad things from me
    And that ain't nothing
    You should see what I'd do to me

    Cut a smile in my face so you'll intake some fleeting comfort
    You've built a wall of beauty to help tolerate any discomfort

    From...

    Your idea of perfect in mind
    I'm perfectly in line
    So lets be enemies
    To see the sun go away

    Would you think I'd let you in
    I've grown to suffer you lashing out at me

    I will stand alone

    Your idea of perfect in mind
    I'm perfectly in line
    So lets be enemies
    To see the sun go away

    My idea, unless you're blind is
    Having you far away
