i fear nothing
besides myself
please don't touch me
love like an infant trying to stand up

am i two souls
one hard, one whole
am i real
i don't want to feel anything

i feel nothing
besides this pain
please don't watch me
love like an infant
scared and crawling

    General Comment"And on that note, this is the clinical depression song."
    -Glen Phillips, right off of track 7 (Butterflies) on Toad's "Welcome Home: Live at the Arlington" album.

    General CommentI feel like both the lines "..love like an infant.." mean to love, but not interfere. Let your infant learn to stand up on its own, and, I guess, crawl away scared.

    General Commentthis song is in a depressing mode, but the comparison he uses to an infant struggling to get off the ground is more one of hope that this stuggle he has with himself and love will eventually get off the ground and get going.
