Blurred spectacle
Ineffectual
Let's call it romantic
On awakening I look straight at the sun
I'm pinned to the corner
Like the class clown

But once I get in front
I'll let you drown like a cat
Until I'm dealt that card
The engine's on
I'm in the car
One suck on the pipe
And I'll be gone

I'm accountable
I'm responsible
You could call me pragmatic
What took away the fame? Could it be built up again?
The acclaim and the constant eulogies
For class clowns like me

But once I get in front
I'll terrorize all I want
And the world won't turn
Stops and stagnates
Disintegrates
This romantic dream
Keeps you in a cage

Should I not fraternize
With these angels I've loved?
But if I'm out of time
I'll say my goodbyes
And float downstream
And have cynics witness me
Grow rotten at the seams

    Song MeaningI found myself sad at this song, because, apart form its inherent confused sadness, it is the last song on the last album Oceansize ever did.

    It occured to me and it matches up the more i read and listen that this song is probably about the "Blurred Spectacle" that was Oceansize. Re-read it in this light and it makes a ton of sense.

    "Should I not fraternize
    With these angels I've loved?
    But if I'm out of time
    I'll say my goodbyes
    And float downstream
    And have cynics witness me
    Grow rotten at the seams"

    absolutely beautiful.
