settle up you're calling up the pain
sitting dead the sinker and the string
you came, you saw, you sawed her brain
cut out all the parts that held your stain

sitting clad you're feeling wild to blame
she's crying as you're climbing down your claim
sitting up you're counting up your names
seen enough to bend him off the frame

you came you saw you sawed her brain
cut out all the parts that held your stain

you clipped you clawed to no applause
you lost the will to ___ the lying off

so try to be somebody
so try to feel somebody
so try to leave somebody
so hard to be somebody

(where can you run) x 8

so try to be somebody
so try to feel somebody
so try to leave somebody
so try to be somebody

    Lyric CorrectionI'm not gonna say I'm right, but I'm fairly positive the lyrics are wrong. The rhyme scheme helped me pick out these lyrics instead:

    settle up you're calling up the pain
    still in doubt you single out the strain
    you came you saw you sawed her brain
    you cut out all the part that held your stain

    still inclined you're billing wide the blame
    she's crying now you're climbing down your claim
    sitting up you counted up your names
    seen enough to bend him off the frame

    you came you saw you sawed her brain
    you cut out all the parts that held your stain

    you clipped your claw to no applause
    you lost the will and bought the lying gauze

    so try to be somebody
    so try to flee somebody
    so try to leave somebody
    so hard to be somebody

    (you wreck and then you run)

    so try to be somebody
    so try to flee somebody
    so try to leave somebody
    so hard to be somebody

    My InterpretationWhat a song!

    I reckon the song may be about his dad (and mum?). What do you reckon to this interp?:

    Settle up, we're calling up the pain
    Stealin' dad? You're single, hide the strain
    You came, you saw, you sawed her brain
    You cut out all the parts that held your stain

    Still in clad you're billing. Why the blame?
    She's crying now you're climbing down your claim
    Sitting up you're counting up your names
    Seen enough to bend him off the frame

    You came, you saw, you sawed her brain
    You cut out all the parts that held your stain

    You clipped, you clawed to no applause
    You lost the will to bolt the lying gauze

    so try to be somebody
    so try to fee somebody
    so try to leave somebody
    so hard/try to be somebody

    Workin' and you run

    turns out the last part is

    "you wreck and you run"

    which totally makes those lyrics even better. fuck.
