Why take everything you see?
You'll have nothing left to squander
If you keep pushing me away
You'll have no one left to love

You throw it all away
Those ties you went and suffered for
You cause disaster
And flounder, flounder, flounder, flounder

Why take everything you see?
You'll have nothing left to squander
If you keep pushing me away
You'll have no one left to love

You're less than you should be
Why run so hard to finish last?
You cause contentment
And I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder

Why take everything you see?
You'll have nothing left to squander
If you keep pushing me away
You'll have no one left to love, love
Why squander squander squander squander

Why take everything you see?
You'll have nothing left to squander
If you keep pushing me away
You'll have no one left to love

    General Commentto me, when i first heard the song, i felt like it was about building intimacy, than loosing that because you re unstable, loosing the ones you love because you re taunted somehow, or cursed, or simple love misery and tragedy, and because of that you break that person's heart, you let her down, you make her hurt, you waste and squander.

    but the video is weird. Surely, it has a dark lonely mood to it, but some things are odd. WHy did skin leave the taxi if she still had to walk? why did the taxi driver looked so surprised? why did the thief had an epiphany after he crossed her and only then, decided to mug her? why didnt she care? feels like someone let her down, and whatever weird things happen to her, she doesnt care, everything is already broken, everything is not worth fighting for. Maybe that's that.

    General CommentThis song is wonderful. I think it's about someone afraid to let go and love, and she's telling them they're throwing good things away and soon they'll have no one if they carry on the way they are.
