Tension's up like fists in a fight.
You should've called me,
It would've meant something.
This is my mind on your recorder,
This is my soul that, that you're hearing.
I used to have my own songs.

If I don't mind,
Then this problem remains my own.
Thinking out loud
Just makes you turn away.

Your silence is crushing
All I want, animal...

Damn, we're fragile and wrong
With all of the things you know,
With that little grace you show.
"Just send a list of instructions to the factory
And when it returns we'll embrace it
Only if it's gold,
Only if it's gold."
It's sickening in stereo.

If I don't mind,
Then this problem remains my own.
Well holding things down
Just makes you turn away.

Your silence is crushing
All I need, animal...

    General Commenti dont really know where the whole "animal" thing comes from, but this is probably about the closed-mindness of certain record labels. "thinking outloud just makes you turn away" (about record labels) is such a strong and true line.

    General Commentwow i never heard about the record label one that could work??!!
    but i still connected this song with this girl i just dated and sill kind of like a bit...
    the first stanza is about sitting at home alone wondering what ur girl is doing and thinking and the tension is to much because she wont kall u and u keep leaving her messages but she wont get back to you.
    when he says I use to have my own songs this is true because this girl got me into listening to hyphy shit and i almost forgot where i was from...
    letting her know how he feels just makes her turn away when he really wants is for her to lash out at him and fuck.
    pretty much he fell in love with a hoe and couldnt change her
    and so did I!!!!!! oh well it happens
