Your disposition
Your constant recognition
If you could you would take almost anything
Overexposed
Self opposed
Worried your life that it all will reveal nothing at all
How low how low will you go
How low how low
So instead create false confidence
Take back control, take back what you know
To mask your own disappointment
Then move on

With repetition
Comes lack of inspiration
Sheltered existence is a challenge in itself
Truth be know, let it be shown
You wouldn�t bring your own self down
Low how low how low will you go
How low how low
Cause if you strip down to your ankles you�ll find
Cause if you strip down to your ankles you�ll find
That there�s always the next quip there�s an angle to your lips and there�s nothing left inside
And you made it plain to see
She sings so desperately
Always with one eye on the prize

We don�t mind we don�t mind we don�t mind we don�t mind we don�t mind we don�t mind we don�t mind

Cause if you strip down to your ankles you�ll find
That there�s always the next quip there�s an angle to your lips and there�s nothing left inside
You realize the face you put on was just a distant memory of the person you planned to be

Your disposition
Your constant recognition
If you could you would take all those things
Overexposed
Self opposed
Worried your life that it all will reveal nothing at all
How low how low
Low how low how low

Cause if you strip down to your ankles you�ll find
Cause if you strip down to your ankles you�ll find
That there�s always the next quip there�s an angle to your ribs and there�s nothing left inside
And you made it plain to see
She sings so desperately
Always with one eye on the prize

We don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind
We don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind
We don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind
We don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind, we don�t mind

    General CommentSounds like ... that there's always the next quip. Not sure though
    Also think it could be lips the first time instead of ribs... =] thanks for the lyrics

    "Sheltered existence is a challenge in itself"

    Definitely my favourite song on the album. And thanks for clearing up the one spot I had no idea about :P
