"Hype" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
One time in your life
You've got the route in hand
But the map is stuck
They said it's not your fault
The tires are tired the camera moves
And your drivers been pulled
And I, I have always felt this
And I, I could never hear it
So I turned it up and turned it on
And turned it down

Always the volume, always the words
Review the press and tell it like it is
Your life is hype, your love is hype
And I, I will clench my own fist
And I, I will always wait
There's more, there's more than blood
That beats through my heart
My hands, my feet stuck
Between my tongue and my teeth

We don't know so we wait for tomorrow
We don't know so we wait for tomorrow
We don't know so we only go forward

Two times in your life you will
Trace the edge, sink your toes in
Review the press and tell it like it is
My life is hype, my love is hype
And I, I will clench my own fist
And I, I will always wait
I'd wait up all night for you

    General Commenti think this song is about someone's life, and theres always tons of drama in it. and they don't want to admit it. but in the end they realize that everything is hype and drama (review the press and tell it like is) but thats just my take on it. =]

    General CommentAmazing song. I think it's just about people who do things for publicity, or to get attention, and not because the things that they're doing are what they really want.
