I've got a new disease in me
I've got a friend that's losing sleep
I take it hard, it's hard to take
I'm wide-awake, I'm wide-awake

One more confession, discretion's not what I need to sell
I never needed a reason for keeping secrets from myself
and now, that's just how I tell I'm wide-awake

I'll wreck this if I have to
Tell me, what good would that do
I'll wreck this if I have to

You get separated, somebody's gone
and I don't know how this is wrong
I'm so frustrated, falling behind
You were a friend of mine

I'd be so good to you
Because they don't know you like I do
They don't know you like I do
They don't know you like I do
They don't know you like I do

There's a difference from me to them
And the road home is paved in star fuckers requiem
I could never go
Go back home again
Acadia is gone

All my indecision, all of my excess
don't you ever tell me I'm not loving you best
I just need a minute, I just need a breath
It's very hard to drink to my continued success
And I will slow down,
It's better in the worst way
It's getting better in the worst way

So here's another day
I'll spend away from you
another night I'm on another broken avenue
Trading in who I've been for shiny celebrity skin
I like to push it and push it until my luck is over

I wonder what you're doing
I wonder if you doubt it
I wonder how we used to ever go so long without it
All that works to impress
Charming girls out of their dresses smiling pretty

I'm right beside you
What you want, what you need
I'll make this perfect again
If I burn out and slip away
You're beautiful, you are

I've been here so very long
And I can slip into you
It's so easy to come back into you
I'll hide it, can I hide in you a while?
I'm not sick of you yet
Is that as good as it gets
I never took you for a trick but sometimes, I don't know what you want
I could take it if you need to take this out on someone

If this is just a part i portray
I don't know how it got this way

    My InterpretationOne definitely has to go through their album to truly soak in everything that this song is about, and indeed, it's truly a masterpiece and an epic round off to their album, without sounding cheesy or boring at all. I'm loving the band, the album, the songs and everyone else who thinks just like me. You're cool too.

    Song Meaning:
    He's in love and she knows it cos he said it. She's in love, and he sort of knows it, but she doesn't tells him.
    She's spending time with another person and they both know it, but nothing that he can do but to go along.
    Everytime she does, he's hurt, but it's something he accedes to accept as part of this relationship.
    He's right beside her yet so distant cos he can't hold her, and she yearns for him to hold her but she can't tell him.
    He's hoping that this will somehow end, and wishing for a closure, but just can't seem to reach at it.
    He treats her well and she treats him well, but they just can't be together.
    He's in too deep to back out, and he hasn't a clue what's next in this relationship. Neither does she.

    That's it guys and girls, and for a beautifully composed masterpiece, this song deserves more than it's share of 8 comments. ITHe song arrangement brings us through the course of the relationship where it begins with plenty of mystery and excitement and start-stop heartbeats, before rushing and ending sophorically. Then it reignites into a new life of its own and ends with a cliffhanger. Brilliant song.

    General CommentThis song is like the grand finale of the entire album. I love how it recaps the songs and restates the lines that have already been said, yet in a different way. I was pleasantly surprised. I was really excited to see "I never took you for a trick but sometimes I don't know what you want. I can take it if you need to take this out on someone" line from Say Anything making a cameo.

    As for its meaning? I think it's just summing up the general theme of the band's music; loneliness, confusion, desperation, and want.

    General Commentthis song is so good because i couldn't have been easy to put all those songs into one and still making it sound good... its a really good ending to the cd. Plus this song is different, its like all suspenseful and you dont really know whats gonna happen but then there is like other instruments... but then after a while it goes into the guitar rock stuff you would be expecting but then all of a sudden it completely switches! then its very scary sounding then starts to recap the beginning and finally breaks off into all of the guys singing at different times which sounds extremely cool, especially when its a Capella. i think they should sing like that more ofte, but not too much because the instruments also make everything sound amazing

    General Commentthis is one of my favourite songs by them .. well one of my favourite songs in general. i love how it takes lines from the songs on the album (as well from Say Anything) and puts it into one ending of the album.
    i love the lines "i take it hard, it's hard to take" and "all my indecision, all of my excess
    don't you ever tell me I'm not loving you best" !

    just a correction : it's "it's very" not "you're very hard to drink to etc. etc."

    Say Anything is my other favourite song by them. and can't forget Lover Dearest :]
