every thing was right until you came in
and ran your dirty mouth
spouting out anecdotes??? of nastiness
and then indulge yourself attracting
on to anyone that listens well????
you're the one who's fucked up
i won't pretend to be your friend
ever again

get me off, then get off me
I've had enough of you
your name your frame are nothing new


I don't know who you think that you are
you've turned into a whore
we can take this to the floor again
i know that you're spent
but we're not finished yet
I've got my own life to transcend

you make everyone look like
they're wrong, and your always right
but at night you sleep alone
and i know you're bed is cold
though you don't say so
maybe let me i can't
wait to get away from you
and your negativity


so get me off then get off me
I've had enough of you
your name your frame are nothing new.

I don't know who you think that you are
you've turned into a whore
we can take this to the floor again
i know that you're spent
but we're not finished yet
I've got my own heart to transcend
so catch me if you can

if i could say one thing
I'd probably have a conniption that
????? people standing up for you

if i could say one thing
I'd probably have a conniption that
???? people standing up to you

i don't know who you think that you are
you've turned into a whore
we can take this to the floor again
i know we've just met
but we're going to bed
I've got my own ship to transcend
so catch me if you can
you can
you can

    General CommentAnd my interpretation of some of the meaning, assuming this is about a guy and girl's relationship, apologies for any vulgarity.

    The title, "A Classic Case of Transference", is referring to the girl's tendency to transfer blame onto anyone who will listen to her and her problems. "ran your dirty mouth, spouting out epitomes of nastiness" is probably alluding to someone who gossips and talks trash, creating problems. She "projects onto anyone that listens", either intentionally accusing someone of having the same problems she has, or unintentionally seeing herself and her flaws in other people. In most cases like this, a person projects on the people closest and most willing to give them a chance, eventually pushing everyone away.

    "So get me off, then get off me, I've had enough of you...
    I don't know who you think that you are
    you've turned into a whore
    We can take this to the floor again
    I know that you're spent,
    but we're not finished yet"

    Here, the girl has probably cheated without remorse. So, nearing the end of the relationship, he turns to use her like she used him, sexually because she seems to take sleeping around so lightly. So rather than blocking her out of his life, he continues to fuck with her but on his terms, rather than making love and being respectful like in a healthy relationship. In cheating and being a drama whore, she's basically reduced herself to a disposable pleasure hole in his eyes.

    "If I could say one thing
    I'd probably have a conniption fit"

    Have you ever met someone who won't let you have a word in edgewise? Especially while arguing? That's what I imagine in these lines. He's saying, if you'd just give me a chance to speak I'd probably have a conniption fit, possibly because he has so much to say and can't calm down and explain it in a linear, understandable fashion.

    So that's it for me, I feel that the rest of the song is pretty self-explanatory. Great song, I think there are lots of people who can relate to a similar scenario.

    General Comment"I've got my own ship to transcend" doesn't make much sense to me. I think he's probably saying "I've got my own shit to transcend."

    General CommentMy interpretation on the correct lyrics, after reviewing them on headphones and in my car at max volume =)

    Everything was right until you came in
    and ran your dirty mouth
    Spouting out epitomes of nastiness
    and then indulge yourself
    projecting on to anyone that listens
    well, you're the one who's fucked up
    I won't pretend to be your friend
    ever again

    Get me off, then get off me
    I've had enough of you
    your name, your frame, are nothing new


    I don't know who you think that you are
    you've turned into a whore
    We can take this to the floor again
    I know that you're spent,
    but we're not finished yet
    I've got my own life to transcend

    You make everyone look like
    they're wrong, and your always right
    But at night you sleep alone
    and I know your bed is cold,
    though you don't say so.
    Baby, lately, I can't wait to get away from you
    and your negativity


    So get me off then get off me
    I've had enough of you
    your name, your frame, are nothing new.

    I don't know who you think that you are
    you've turned into a whore
    we can take this to the floor again
    I know that you're spent
    but we're not finished yet
    I've got my own heart to transcend
    So catch me if you can

    If I could say one thing
    I'd probably have a conniption fit
    villianize people for standing up to you

    If I could say one thing
    I'd probably have a conniption fit
    villianize people for standing up to you


    I don't know who you think that you are,
    you've turned into a whore
    We can take this to the floor again
    I know we've just met
    but we're going to bed
    I've got my own shit to transcend
    so catch me if you can
    you can
    you can
