Can I have your attention?
I just open my mouth
Is it clear?
Is it loud for you?

You just need me to be stable
But I won't be able
To keep it together again
Now don't pretty please me
Do not make it that easy to slow me down

It's no wonder
I'm not eating
I'm not sleeping
You sing
Sing, sing to me
Sing me something I need
Sing you, sing you
God I wish that I could

Are you hearing me now?
Heard the sad little sounds as they fall from my mouth

You just need me to be stable
But I won't be able
To keep it together again
Now don't pretty please me
Do not make it that easy to slow me down

It's no wonder
I'm not eating
I'm not sleeping
You sing
Sing, sing to me
Sing me something I need
Sing you, sing you
God I wish that I could

All my indecision
All of my excess
Don't you ever tell me I'm not lovin' you best
I just need a minute
I just need a breathe
You're very hard to drink to my continued success

Do I have your attention?

You just need me to be stable
But I won't be able
To keep it together again
(together again)
Now don't pretty please me
Do not make it that easy to slow me down

It's no wonder
I'm not eating
I'm not sleeping
You sing
Sing, sing to me
Sing me something I need
Sing you, sing you
God I wish that I could

All my indecision
All of my excess
Don't you ever tell me I'm not lovin' you best
All my indecision
All of my excess
Don't you ever tell me I'm not lovin' you best

    Song Meaning:i believe this song is written to the fans.

    "and you say, sing sing to me, sing me something i need, sing new, sing good..."

    bands come up with new records on an average of every few years. maybe MT was getting some pressure because fans weren't getting enough and just want more.

    "don't you ever tell me i'm not loving you best."

    i can't picture fans to be pressing and whiney, but they band makes it very clear that they so appreciate the support.

    General Comment:I read an interview alittle while ago. Josh said that he was under alot of presure to get a new album
    out fast after fix me. but he said that he didnt want to put out a record just to put one out. he wanted it to be good, so he took a chance and took his time to make his masterpiece theater.

    i think that this song is about how he didnt want to let anyone down, including himself. he's trying his best to meet not only the fans exspectations, but his own. they're pushing and pushing for more, and he's trying his best, but the pressure isn't helping, its making it harder.

    Im happy that he did resist the pressure though because masterpiece theater is truely a masterpiece.:)

    General Comment:I love this song. It's amazing :]
    You have got the lyrics wrong...
    "It's no wonder
    I'm not eating
    I'm not sleeping
    You sing
    Sing, sing to me
    Sing me something I need
    Sing you, sing you
    God I wish that I could"

    It should be..
    "it's no wonder i'm not eating, i'm not sleeping.
    and you say, sing sing to me,
    sing me something i need,
    sing new, sing good.
    god i wish that i could.."

    I'm still not sure what it's about to be honest. But I would guess that it is about a relationship where the girl is always saying for him to sing, because that's his job. But in the end he cant anymore, hence why he is not eating or sleeping. He is just growing tired of it. Though he could be talking about keeping the relationship together and the singing is the love for her. Like how she is saying to tell him he loves her and all that but he just cant.

    Also maybe she is too demanding.
    "you just need me to be stable
    but i won't be able to keep it together again."
    She wants him to be totally into the relationship but he simply cant. This is also shown by "All my indecision
    All of my excess
    Don't you ever tell me I'm not lovin' you best " He is trying his best but she wants too much from him. Well...this is just what I gathered from it (:
