I fell and slipped in a pool of spit
that my parents spat out on the day they split
Fell clumsily through twigs and trees
into a pile of dudes who were as screwed as me

Well guess what.. you showed up
with a cape, and a dress, to dress my cuts
Nice to meet yah.. I'm cliche
I have this baggage but can you save me

Can you save me
cause I don't want to end up like they are
Can you save me
cause I don't want to get stuck like they are
Can you save me
cause I don't want to give it up like they are
Can you save me
Can you save me

Disfigured fiends with sadistic schemes
have got it out for the woman of my dreams
I'm a helpless mess, damsel in distress
caught staring at the symbol on her chest

You chose me out of these
sea of klutzes come triple amputees
Unworthy of all your time
while I dance here amongst the landmines

Can you save me
cause I don't want to end up like they are
Can you save me
cause I don't want to get stuck like they are
Can you save me
cause I don't want to give it up like they are
Can you save me
Can you save me

Cause I wanted you do you want me too
Cause I notice you, do you notice anything I do
Cause I wanted you do you want me too
Cause I notice you, cause I notice you
Cause I wanted you do you want me too
Cause I notice you, do you notice anything I do
Cause I wanted you do you want me too
Cause I notice you, cause I notice you

Can you save me
cause I don't want to end up like they are
Can you save me
cause I don't want to get stuck like they are
Can you save me
really don't wanna give it up like they are
Can you save me
Can you save me

    Lyric CorrectionI do understand it's a bit hard to understand Max's lyrical "jew"-jitsu, but I believe there are a few things you may have misheard, or possibly I am. What I have intrepreted as the lyrics are as follows:


    I fell and slipped in a pool of spit that my parents spat out on the day they split
    Fell clumsily through twigs and trees into a pile of dudes who were as screwed as me
    Well guess what, you showed up, with your cape and dressed to dress my cuts
    Nice to meet you, I'm cliche, yeah, I have this baggage but can you save me

    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna end up like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna get stuck like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna give it up like they are
    Can you save me, can you save me
    Can you save me, can you save me

    Disfigured things with sadistic schemes have got it out for the woman of my dreams
    I'm a helpless mess, damsel in distress, caught staring at the symbol on her chest
    You chose me out of this, sea of klutzes, come triple amputees
    Unworthy of all your time
    While I dance here among the land mines

    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna end up like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna get stuck like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna give it up like they are
    Can you save me, can you save me?
    Can you save me, can you save me?

    Cause I wanted you, do you want me too?
    Cause I notice you, do you notice anything I do?
    Cause I wanted you, do you want me too?
    Cause I notice you, cause I notice you
    Cause I wanted you, do you want me too?
    Cause I notice you, do you notice anything I do?
    Cause I wanted you, do you want me too?
    Cause I notice you, cause I notice you

    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna end up like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna get stuck like they are
    Can you save me, really don't wanna give it up like they are
    Can you save me, can you save me?
    Can you save me, can you save me?

    General CommentI think its fair to say this is another song about his "rescue" from the drugs/dark places he once was. How is wife brought him back, so to speak. I love the line "whilst I dance here amongst the land mines" great imagery imo which sums up his hap-hazard state of mind and health at that time. I always find Max has a great way of portraying his story through his lyrics, he manages to say so much to listeners in a single line.

    General Commentone of the more powerful songs on Anarchy. last chorus gives me chills.

    if it's not about Sherri saving Max from his shitty bi-polar drug addicted lifestyle, i'm not sure what it's about.

    this song makes me so happy for where Max and Say Anything are headed.

    Lyric Correctioni've put asterisks where SchizoTeeJay was wrong. the following lyrics are straight from sayanythingmusic.com/…


    "I fell and slipped in a pool of spit
    That my parents spat out on the day they split.
    Fell clumsily through twigs and trees
    Into a pile of dudes who were as screwed as me.
    Well, guess what? You showed up
    With A CAPE AND A DRESS* to dress my cuts.
    Nice to MEETCHA*, I’m cliché!
    I have this baggage but can you save me?

    Can you save me?
    ‘Cuz I don’t want to end up like they are.
    I don’t want to get stuck like they are.
    I don’t want to give it up like they are.
    Can you save me?

    Disfigured FIENDS* with sadistic schemes
    Have got it out for the woman of my dreams.
    I’m a helpless mess. Damsel in distress
    Caught staring at the symbol on her chest.
    You chose me out of THESE*
    Sea of klutzes-CUM*-triple-amputees.
    Unworthy of all your time
    While I dance here AMONGST* the landmines

    ‘Cuz I wanted you.
    Do you want me too?
    ‘Cuz I notice you.
    Do you notice anything I do?

    Can you save me tonight?"

    My InterpretationAt the beginning of the song Max says:

    "I fell and slipped in a pool of spit that my parents spat out on the day they split"

    Which obviously means that his parents split. Throughout the song he sings:

    "Can you save me, cause I don't wanna end up like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna get stuck like they are
    Can you save me, cause I don't wanna give it up like they are"

    I feel like him and his wife are going through problems and he doesn't want to "end up like they are" "They" meaning his parents.

    And also because of Max's bi-polar disorder and his experiences with drugs, his wife is trying to save that.
