What's your idea of a really fun afternoon, daytime kinda date?

Oh, I'd just like to, you know,
spend some time with you, I think that's the main thing.
You seem like kind of a hard egg but I think I could crack you. Cracker? Cracker? Cracker?

God, you're...I can't wait to get back to you! Bachelor #1, what's your favourite colour and why?

I’m taking a ride off to one side
It is a personal thing.
Where?
When I can’t stand up in this cage I’m not regretting.
I don’t need a better thing
I’d settle for less
It’s another thing for me
I just have to wander through this world alone.

Stop before you fall
Into the hole that I have dug here
Rest even as you
Are starting to feel the way I used to
I don’t need a better thing
Just to sound confused
Don’t talk about everyone
I am not amused by you.

Cos I’m gonna lose ya
Yes I’m gonna lose ya
If I’m gonna lose ya

Cos I’m gonna lose ya
Yes I’m gonna lose ya
If I’m gonna lose ya
I’ll lose you now for good.

Hi, bachelor #1, I'm a really fun-loving person.
If you were a Mac lipstick colour, what would you be?

I would be brown like the earth.
A good solid earth tone, but you shouldn't wear so much make-up, you harpy.

You're funny! You use big words.

    General CommentAfter a long time of searching I finally found it. Yes its from Whose Line Is It Anyways. Episode 105. Originally Aired September 2, 1998
    They are playing a game called "Let's Make A Date"
    Karen is the woman asking questions to Ryan who is a parrot.

    This is what it says in the beginning

    Karen Maruyama: What's your idea of a really fun afternoon, daytime kinda date?

    Ryan Stiles: Oh, I'd just like to, you know,
    spend some time with you, I think that's the main thing. You seem like kind of a hard egg but I think I could crack you. Cracker? Cracker? Cracker?

    Karen Maruyama: God, you're...I can't wait to get back to you! Bachelor #1, what's your favourite colour and why?

    At the end of the song
    This part is a few seconds before the first part above in the same game "Lets Make A Date:
    Brad is playing an amish man

    This is what it says in the end.

    Karen Maruyama: Hi, bachelor #1, I'm a really fun-loving person. If you were a Mac lipstick colour, what would you be?

    Brad Sherwood: I would be brown like the earth. A good solid earth tone, but you shouldn't wear so much make-up, you harpy.

    Karen Maruyama: You're funny! You use big words.

    General CommentI think in this song Pete is separating himself from his friend because he has to work on some personal things that are best worked out alone. His friend is trying to help him out but Pete tells him to stop or he will "feel the way I used to". And by making this choice Pete knows he is losing his friend.

    General CommentI just realized that the talking in the background is from the show Whose Line is it anyway

    General CommentControl is one of the biggest illusions, we have the least control over other people and how they feel. Sometimes I feel so helpless having to just sit back and watch my friends deteriorate even though I would do anything for them. But there are somethings you just can't do. I what it comes down to is that I am going to lose them, I'm going to lose them all.

    General CommentIt's about a deeply depressed person telling his loved ones that it's not there fault before he commits suicide and saying a final goodbye, before everyone he loves leaves him.

    General Commentmakes me think of the phrase watching a train wreck in slow motion

    i wasnt ready for college when i graduated high school. some things happened and i wasn't in a healthy state of mind when i left home for school, hundreds of miles away from my family and friends. suicidal thought and depression were not as unusual as i would have preferred. and when you have so many expectations on you its like all you can do is hold on. after four long years i knew that all i was doing was just digging my hole deeper and deeper. it was scary when i told my family and friends back home that i wouldn't be graduating, and yes there were some sighs and looks of disappointment, but at that point i couldn't care less. it might be selfish but for the first time in years i was free. i lost friends from it but now i realize that those people were never friends to begin with if your friendship hinged entirely on expectancies instead of anything meaningful. i feel so much better now and its like instead of failure or defeat i've simply closed an ugly chapter in my life. i like where i'm at now. i have my family and friends and an okay 40hr a week job but that doesn't matter. i'm happy and i feel better. when i wake up there isn't this pressure on my shoulders and this hollowing feeling in my gut. i wake up and i'm smiling. when i'm ready i will go back because an education is important. until then i'll settle for less =}

    good song

    General CommentI guess he realizes that he's going to be losing this girl for some reason or another and it seems that he wants to get away from it all. He wants to get over her and "lose her now for good" I love the starting AND the ending of this song. It adds so much to it.
