"A Thousand Words" as written by Daniel Jones and Darren Hayes....
We stumble in a tangled web
Decaying friendships almost died
And hide behind a mask of lies
We twist and turn and we avoid
All hope and salvage now devoid
I see the truth behind your eyes
So take all this noise to your brain
And send it back again
I'll bare the cost shed my skin call
You up and then...
I'll say the words out loud

You could resurrect a thousand
Words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the
Reasons why I don't need you
Anymore

Time manipulates your heart,
Preconceptions torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind
But I won't go down on what I said
I won't retract convictions read
I may perplex, but I'm not blind
So take all this noise to your brain
Send it back again
I'll bear the cost shed my skin,
Call you up and then
I'll say the words out loud

You could resurrect a thousand
Words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the
Reasons why I don't need
You anymore

I'll say the words out loud. I'll say
A thousand words or more
Manipulation. Fabricaton.
Conversation. Annihalation.
I'll say a thousand words or more
Domination. Frustration. Elevation.
Procreation.
I'll say a thousand words our more

You could resurrect a thousand
Words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the
Reasons why I don't need you anymore

    General CommentSometimes, after a break-up, there's still hope of reconciliation. I think this song is about the moment when he realized there will be no reconciliation. It's too late. The relationship was too twisted to ever be "healthy" again.

    General CommentI really enjoy the emotion of this song. I think it's about the fact that a relationship has fallen apart to a point beyond repair.

    General CommentI love the imagery of this song...it's very powerful, and Darren has such eloquence. I think that deep down part of him he still loves her, but he knows it's over, and he's determined not to let himself be manipulated anymore.

    General CommentI think this song, like break me shake me, is about being manipulated, he's broken up with her, and looking back, he can see that she was just manipulating him for the duration of the relationship

    General CommentSuch a great song. I love with words Darren plays with in this song. Many of you have voiced what I belive this song is about already. It's very bitter and angry...very cathardic song. Must have been very theraputic to write.
