"In Transit" as written by Peter Wentz and Mark Hoppus....
The world is filled with
The minds of people who try to discuss
A light will shine through
When no one can save you

And you feel
The eyes of people who try to decide
You'll find yourself lost
Inside of the chaos

The truth is never far away
You always gIve yourself a way (I can't even smile)
Through open eye, it's slide of him
Won't you reveal to me?
Reveal to me

The world is filled with
The lives of people who try to define
The lines that find you
Can anyone save you?

Go down the hall
Drink from the bottle
And never go home
No one's to blame
We're always the same (we're always the same)

The truth is never far away
You always gIve yourself a way (I can't even smile)
Through open eyes a slide of him
Won't you reveal to me?

The truth is never far away
You only have yourself to blame (it's taking all your time)
Through open eyes
A slide of him
Won't you reveal to me?
Reveal to me

The truth is never far away
You always give yourself a way (I can't even smile)
Through open eyes
A slide of him
Won't you reveal to me?

Reveal to me

Reveal to me

    General CommentI think the middle line in the chorus is "Through open eyes and sleight of hand" and not "Through open eye,it's slide of him". "slide of him" makes absolutely no sense, so I really think it's "sleight of hand".

    I also don't hear the 'won't' in "won't you reveal to me?" at any point. I think it's just "you reveal to me."

    So I guess, essentially I think the correct lyrics for the chorus are,
    "The truth is never far away,
    you always give yourself away.
    Through open eyes and sleight of hand
    you reveal to me,
    reveal to me."

    Anyway, I like this song a great deal. I think it's about someone who is pushed to conform to society's standards but the singer can see their true self through the little things they do (sleight of hand) and through their eyes. =)

    General Commenti dont think pete sings in the song.. i think he co-wrote it? dont quote me on that, it's just a guess.

    correction of the second line in the first verse:
    "The minds of people who try to disguise"

    great song though :)
