I think I seem to be a mystery
even spied by the given eye
I'm telling tales of memories
songs of birds softly outlined

I feel strange
do you know me
I recognize those eyes

There's something of me out there
in between the trees
but I don't believe
I can give the thought the time
I don't believe
I can give the thought the time

PUZZLED
WITH
NO PEACE

I feel strange
do you know me
I recognize those eyes

something's coming over me
like I've lost my mind
but the world is open wide

Doctor, Doctor
What's my status
will I stand or will I fall?

I can stand here blankly,
I can hold my breath,
I can even not exist at all

Doctor, Doctor
Can you read me?
You've said the signs and I've got them all

Radio, Radio
can you hear my swan song?
Radio, Radio
can you hear my swan song?

I'm at it again
I'm at it again


I took my feet off
I took my legs off

I ripped my guts out
I peeled my skin off

I ripped my throat out
I pulled my eyes out

I ripped my heart out
I took my face off

    General CommentCaptures the feeling of being lost and annoyed with yourself for not being able to do the things to help yourself be happy. It's a frantic feeling, searching for something, when you know (or don't know) that it's really within yourself to be content. "I've lost my mind, but the world is wide" the world is still immensely vast and time is infinite, but you're all tripped up inside your own head. And then you feel like the last verse of the song and you give up.

    General CommentAh. I love listening to this when I'm in a calm and introspective mood. The overall feeling it gives off is so damn mystical...it just takes ya there.
    And as for the lyrical means...if it wasn't for the end of the song where he just talks about destroying himself, I would've thought that this song was just about him being a ghost. Which makes me really want Booberry.

    General CommentDon't know why there aren't more comments. This song is probably one of the best on the album.

    My InterpretationAs a sufferer, for me this song could certainly be about a depersonalization or dissociative disorder, something that is typical a symptom of highly level anxiety and even depression. Given that he comments on a doctor, that all his vital signs are in check, yet he still feels strange to himself and lost in the universe. "Something's coming over me, like I've lost my mind, but the world is open wide" is an eerily accurate description of how DP feels.
