I'll paint my face on the wall in your bedroom.
I would say anything if it would make you happy.
I'm tripping acid while you're tripping mushrooms.
I'm falling through the floors and walking on the ceiling.
I'll paint my face on a wall in your bedroom.
I'm stabbing at the thoughts only to see what's bleeding
While I'm tripping acid and you're tripping mushrooms.
The walls are black and moving, but you tell them I'm happy.

And we both know where this is going to lead to.
Yeah, we both know where this is going to lead to.
And I'd fight your boyfriend if you thought I had to
'Cause we both know where this is going to lead to.

Put your poems inspired by true love
I would say anything if it would make you happy.
I'd sing you songs until you said 'enough'.
I'm falling through the floors and walking on the ceiling.
I'd fight your boyfriend; I would try to be tough.
I'm stabbing at the thoughts only to see whats bleeding
And I'd sing you songs until you said 'enough'.
The walls are black; they're moving in,
But you can tell them I'm happy.

And we both know where this is going to lead to
Yeah, we both know where this is going to lead to
And I'd fight your boyfriend if you thought I had to
'Cause we both know where this is going to lead to

    General CommentI believe that part is "I'm stabbing at the thoughts, only to see what's bleeding,"

    My InterpretationI think that this may be about two people who know they shouldn't be together, but know they are bond to fall in love. Eventually, they will loose some of their resolve and give in. I think the line, "I'm tripping acid, while you're tripping mushrooms" may be talking more about simply doing drugs. I believe that this line is about how the are both seeing things drastically different than everyone else. It may seem that they are seeing the same delusion, but both lover have slightly different perspectives, even if they are drastically different than everyone else.
