Here always looking in
Meet you from the outside
That's just how it's been
Surreal existence isn't clear
Occupy the time waste away the years

A thousand miles connected by a line
Feeling helpless when we argue, hang up all the time
Call you back I know you're there talk to the machine
This picture's painted clearly, I'm still on the outside

Again brought down to my knees
Fought for resolution, L.A. girl you quit
Forget conquered all the demons try to plant new seeds
Staring at the ocean

So believe me when I say that I'm sincere
My dreams will take me where I want to go from here
To you I bid a fond farewell strength to walk alone
This picture's painted clearly I'm still on the outside

Always looking in
Meet you from the outside
That's just how it's been
Surreal existence isn't clear
Occupy the time waste away the years

So believe me when I say that I'm sincere
My dreams will take me where I want to go from here
To you I bid a fond farewell strength to walk alone
This picture's painted clearly I'm still - look out!

    General Commenti'm pretty sure its "occupy the time" not "occupy your mind"
    i think this song is about a guy who's breaking up w. his gf becaus they just not getting along well. he thinks that she's a shallow argumentative girl and thats not the kind of girl he wants to go out w.

    General CommentI think your right man. Either way, this song kicks ass. Anybody reading this who likes punk and hasn't heard this, D/L it right away. Also check out "cashed in"
