I am just another fool and I have to keep telling myself that I am just a hypocrit and I have to keep calling you one'cause I forgot to bite my tongue and my assumption is the mother of all mistakes as I assume the role open my mouth and clumsy words escape [chorus] so why you want to be there when you could be here you are slipping away I awake with tour replacement a bottle in my grasp in an unfamiliar place because you put me out the butt of a sick joke into this ashtray life as you come and go 'cause I forgot to service you and we broke down and you can't live with my mistakes so I assume false grace open my arms and grasp at something true [chorus] how are you how have you been girl I miss you wanna see you again [repeat chorus] I bring out the worst in you and you try to let me know you bring out the worst in me anxiety I'm trying to let you go you say I'm giving you the creeps so I assume the bole open my claws and grasp for your heart [repeat chorus] into you like a mortal stake so vindictive your love's slipping away violins violence the butt of your sick joke into ashtray life I'm trying hard to let you go

    General Commenthes talking about is a girl he obviously loved and broke up with her. Now hes trying hard to forget her and let her go by intentionally being a creep and grasping for her heart. To back this up, thats what he means when he says "Into you like a mortal stake so vindictive" he got his revenge. =]

    Yellowcard sucks, gtfo.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Lagwagon songs and one of my favorite songs all around, I heard it on a demo for a game and then I got the album and realized it was more significant then I thought.

    General Commenthas anyone heard this on the Joey Cape/Tony Sly acoustic cd. it's awesome. It makes it sound wicked emo but still a great song.
