Listen to the voices all the noises that keep ringing in your head
Staring at the wall you trip and fall and think of other things instead
Things are changing clearly in our living singularly you have grown
Step out of the past you thought at last from the unknown to the unknown

And all the while you keep on telling me that you really shouldn't get inside yourself anymore

you really shouldn't get inside yourself anymore

My guilt resides in family
I leave it there, I leave it be
I drink my way to charity
But that's not me, no that's not me
I placed that bet twelve years ago
when I was left to the unknown
I change my mind
if only I could change my mind
I'd change

Listen to this race of all the humans and their funny little ways
Lying to yourself, you're getting by
the float is passing catch the rest
Underscore the cinematic feature on the screen
which tells the story of singing corpses who are cooler in their dreams
but now they're dragging dirty laundry up and down these crooked streets

and the whole time
they keep on telling me you really shouldn't get inside yourself anymore

you really shouldn't get inside yourself anymore

My guilt resides in family
I leave it there, I leave it be
I drink my way to charity
but that's not me, no that's not me
I placed that bet twelve years ago
when I was left to the unknown
I change my mind
if only I could change my mind
I'd change

Baby you'll make this work

    My InterpretationI think it's a story about developing confusing feelings for one of your best friends, and not knowing whether you're happy or sad about these feelings. The song has a happy opening, the joy and love in friendship, but then a more minor, somber chorus about his true feelings. Finally ending on an upbeat riff, he's finally accepted that he feels this way about his friend,saying how he can see a relationship evolving between them.
