I am a secret government agent armed with lies
About secret government things
I have secret government documents that could knock you dead
From your regular citizen lives
And I'll break into your regular citizen homes with my government knives

I do regular citizen things, but that's where it ends
'Cause my secret government mind is a rare breed
I can't love, I can't feel or have passion but I don't mind
'Cause my secret government facts tell me
Despite what many normal citizens say
Love causes pain and pain hurts and now passion is dead

Before I became a secret agent spy
I was put on this earth with a regular life
Smiling and laughing and singing away
But I could not keep my curious mind at bay
I set out to answer a question of mine
About human heart versus rational mind
See, I thought if I planted my heart in the ground
I could grow a heart tree and spread my love around
I enlisted the help of a very close friend
And we ripped out my heart so the test could begin

And we watered my heart
And we let the sun feed it vitamins
And we waited for that sprout
And I dug up my heart and I found it was nothing but dirt
(My heart had become the earth)

Now I'm a secret government agent armed with a past
About regular citizen life
I can't love, I can't feel or have passion
But I don't mind, 'cause you can't break my government heart

You cannot break my secret agent heart ever again

    General CommentThis song is great. I think it's a metaphor for being hurt very badly and fantasizing a way to run off and leave it all behind (in this case by becoming a government agent). It could also be interpreted as saying that the government hurts people everyday and doesn't care or have any feelings about the things it does.

    General CommentWhy do I feel like this song will become the story of my life?

    "I enlisted the help of a very close friend
    And we ripped out my heart so the test could begin
    And we watered my heart
    And we let the sun feed it vitamins
    And we waited for that sprout
    And I dug up my heart and I found it was nothing but dirt
    (My heart had become the earth)"

    Sigh.
    As for meaning, I think asSTARSfallx covered everything.
