you make yourself so beautiful, you make yourself so, so beautiful and now i feel like i'm going, i'm going to set myself on fire. i'm going to set myself up at a window, this margin walker wants a clear view, this margin walker wants a clear shot, and now i'm shooting it right on you. untraceable, untranslatable, i can't explain all i ever wanted to do trajectory passing right through me threads my needle sends it right through you. you make yourself so visible, you make yourself so, so visible, and now i feel like i'm in the tread of some bastard jealousy. up here, above the avenue, up here, where the things you do, they lend me a problem with the language, split my seams and then they drop in a fuse.

    General CommentSounds like he's describing an assasination attempt. Possessed by a desire to destroy something that's got vast control over everyone else, making him an extremist. Feels powerless and wants to commit a desperate act in order to shut it down, explode it.

    General CommentI think it is about obsessing/admiring a woman from afar.
    He is seeing her but she isnt seeing him...but she sets him on fire and he is ready to take his "shot" or explode.

    General CommentI really don't think this is literally about contemplating an actual assassination but rather using the idea as a metaphor for something more along the lines of what Bellyfull said.

    General Commentdoing your own thing, walking your own line and watching everyone else in the center following each other, doing the same as each other. its not about a specific thing.
