Much Against Everyone's Advice
I
seem to have a history
at missing the point
at this stuff
apparently
very absentmindedly
I care
but never enough
for
..
you
TIIIIIIIIIME-to put the record straight
TIIIIIIIIIME-to stop communicating
please anticipate
AND I'M TRYING TO COMPREHEND THE THINGS I WRITE
AND I'M LIVING THE LIE THAT I CANNOT SATISFY
MUCH AGAINST EVERYONE'S ADVICE
I'M STILL TRYING I'M TRYING I'M TRYING I'M TRYING
faith
cheated me of everything
but I laughed until
I stopped
publicly
very, very openly
I sat alone with my thoughts
for
..
you
TIIIIIIIIIME-to set the record straight
TIIIIIIIIIME-to stop communicating
please anticipate
AND I'M TRYING TO COMPREHEND THE THINGS I WRITE
AND I'M LIVING THE LIE THAT I CANNOT SATISFY
MUCH AGAINST EVERYONE'S ADVICE
I'M STILL TRYING I'M TRYING I'M TRYING I'M TRYING

    General Commentone of my favourite songs. as far as i see, he's saying he's not caring enough for someone that he has feelings for (i conclude he has feelings because of the line: i sat alone with my thoughts... for you). which seems a contradiction, but in this case i guess it isn't, or well it is, but that's what the song's about. about trying your best and still seeming to do everything wrong. trying to be someone you want to be (living a lie that i cannot satisfy) but failing because you're just your own absentminded self that is going right in against all that should be (much against everyones advice). but this is just my fucked up opinion. :D let me know what you think.

    General CommentI'm confused as to why everyone in europe has heard of these guys and no one in north america has. Seems like a shame.

    General CommentI love this song. I don't know if the music or lyrics are better..


    AND I'M TRYING TO COMPREHEND THE THINGS I WRITE ~ when your thoughts are going to places that don't fit the practical nessicities of the circumstances in your life at the moment... AND I'M LIVING THE LIE THAT I CANNOT SATISFY ~ this line makes me think of every time I walk to my cubicle jpb to make the $$ that allows me to live the American dream/nightmare or mortgage payments. I want to live off the land and go to bed tired after a another day of working with nature to keep my place there..
    MUCH AGAINST EVERYONE'S ADVICE
    I'M STILL TRYING I'M TRYING I'M TRYING I'M TRYING ~ to convince people, one at a time that there's a different way than the path we've collectively been on..

    faith
    cheated me of everything ~ this line take my thoughts a few places.. Tangent 1. dogma getting in the way of a true experience of the divine Tangent 2. A perception believed by enough people gets to be limiting... Tangent 3. Being a child reared in one tradition of faith but perhaps getting a bad experience at church or something that creates a distrust of religuos institutions.. A child's mind does not neccessarily see the differences between churches and spirit and is not interested for sometime and then
    This song deep to me but wrapped up in a great booty-shaking musical package.

    General CommentLOVE this song, the sound is great and really gets you going. I think this is basically about people putting him down or saying that he's wrong all the time even though he's trying to please everyone, and so he's putting the records straight with everyone.
