Its a compulsion, really out of my hands.
To tell you all about you, making all the wrong plans.

But I grind my teeth, (grind my teeth)
And I'm picking this scar,
Anything to make it through,
A night at the bar.

Leave me with flat teeth, with fresh wounds,
Another nervous tick.
Please leave me on the kitchen floor, with my dignity,
While I get sick.

Clean me out like an open sore,
Say its me that makes you a whore.
Go ahead blame the moon and sun,
Then deny, because thats what makes this fun.

You're just a symptom,
you're just a symptom,
You're just...
You're just a symptom,
you're just a symptom,
You're just...

Just a symptom, just a symptom.

Clean me out like an open sore,
Say its me that makes you a whore.
Go ahead blame the moon and sun,
Then deny, because thats what makes this fun.

    General CommentSounds like a dude that likes a girl. He tries to tell her he's right for her, but she just plays with him. So he thinks of her like a symptom to a sickness that will hopefully fade.

    General CommentI still haven't figured out what it's about. Definitely one of my favorite songs though.

    "But I'll grind my teeth, (grind my teeth)
    And I'll pick at this scar,
    Anything to make it through,
    A night at the bar." possibly?
