Complications, more so I can say
Promises and deadlines make it hard to stay away
All these strings are attaching to me
And I can't find the scissors, yeah

All in a tangle now, we're back in a knot
I can't remember where I was, I forgot
Knitting it all, these holes that I need
To crawl through a brick wall
Is hard to say the least

Where's that thought
That thought uncomplicated things?
Where's that peace of mind
That peace that made it easy?
Where's that simple day
That simply made it nice to be in?
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
Yeah

I got you a murky light, tell me what can you see?
A huge cloud of shit hanging over me
Can you blow it all somewhere else?
It's making it hell to distinguish myself
Tired of the tyrants who only think they're all business
Pissed with their patience, they constantly agree
"Yes sir, yes sir, three hundred bags full,"
It's easier to say yes than to say no to a fool

Where's that thought
That thought uncomplicated things?
Where's that peace of mind
That peace that made it easy?
Where's that simple day
That simply made it nice to be in?
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
Yeah

Cover me in cyanide
Cover me in ink
Cover me in formaldehyde and leave me here to think
Cover me in carpet
Cover me in tile
Cover me and evict me and put me in a file
Strip me bare, don't let me breathe
Strip me to my skin
Strip me so you can watch me clean off all these things I�ve been
Strip me naked of these walls
Strip me of all my rules
Strip me, boy, and see how small I am without you
Inseminate the good, now
Inseminate the pure
Inseminate all the shit that I've forgotten how to whore
Inseminate the natural
Inseminate the dirt
Inseminate the ineffectual
And leave me here to love
Leave me here to love

Where's that thought
That thought uncomplicated things?
Where's that peace of mind
That peace that made it easy?
Where's that simple day
That simply made it nice to be in?
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
Yeah

Leave me here to love...

    General Commenti think "three hundred bags full" has nothing to do with drugs or money
    i just think it simply shows the amount of pressure she's under... like she has a load on her shoulders.
    i think this song is just about her working in the music industry for some reason.. i get that vibe from it that she was struggling under the demands and pressures of it.
    i love this song anyway.
    Imogen Heap is the most wonderful artist on the planet
    i adore her.
    xoxoxo

    General Commentit isn't 'All I tell them "I’m back" and I’m not.'
    It's
    'All in a tangle now, we're back in a knot'.

    Sense!

    Great song anyway

    'Strip me boy and see how small I am without you.'
    Great line, there seems to be such a onfusion about what she wants.

    General CommentIt seems like she's getting bitter about this guy that's in love with her and she finds herself unable to say no to this person because of the pressure they put on her to be pleasant or nice, but her real feelings to not lie with this person.

    It's like she doesn't really want to love this person yet she finds herself slowly beginning to fall into the trap of this guy. Twisted, Immi! Hehe.. she's so great, I love her music!

    General CommentI love how this song is so short, and her voice sounds almost like it's a little sped up at the beginning. What a great song, with sparse sticatto piano accompanied by a superheavily distorted guitar, I LOVE piano in rock songs! Though I guess she isn't exactly rock... Oh well, one of my favourite songs by her!

    General Comment"Where’s that peace of mind, that peace that made it easy?" doesnt everyone ask this at least in life.
    I think this song is one of two things, about how hard life is and just trying to get through..or its about breakup and boy problems. either way its my favorite.

    "Yes sir, yes sir, three hundred bags full."
    ^^^ could that possibly be drugs???
    i think yes.

    General CommentI think that line is a reference to the "Baa Baa Black Sheep" rhyme:

    "Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
    Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full:
    One for the master,
    One for the dame,
    and one for the little boy who lives down the lane."

    As for what they have three hundred bags of, I guess drugs makes sense, or money...
