When you base
Your whole identity
On reaction against somebody
It’s the same as being in

I tend to forget when I drink.
I’m doing it again I think
A hand to hold, an ego to flatter,
‘Cause you were the wineskin, I was the bladder.

Time passes, events fall away
(I don’t think they’ll hurry).
Hurry up, I’m blacking out,
High on the vapor
‘Cause I was the typo,
You were the liquid paper.

Talk it over, talk it, overtalk it.
The answer’s still the same:

It’s discontent, humiliation
‘Cause you were the theme and I was the variation.
Try to take a less dramatic course of action;

This attraction, introspection-diction predilection is breaking my heart again, breaking my heart again.

    General CommentIt's a break up song. Fairly straight forward and easy to follow and by god if it isn't one of the finest songs ever written. If ever you needed proof that Sean Nelson is one of the greatest songwriters of this or any generation, here it is.

    General CommentThis song is so completely random. I have no idea what it's about, though I'm awful curious. He must have had something in mind when writing it, i have no idea what though... Maybe he was just tripping on Acid or something. Any one have a clue??
