I'm outta sight around the moon
But I'll be back in time for you
I know it's strange
But are you big enough?

Ok, you know this isn't right
I'm the bark that's to your bite
But I can't wait till you see the light

So I, I do it all for you
But I'm not asking for

You lead me on
I don't need your mercy kiss
You lead me on
I don't need your mercy kiss

I'm in and out of astral planes
The sliding doors I break the panes
I know it's strange
So are you brave enough?

Alright, like a quarterback I score
I'm the one they all adore
But I can't find what I'm looking for

You lead me on
I don't need your mercy kiss
You lead me on
I don't need your mercy kiss

I don't need your
I don't need it
I don't need your mercy kiss
I don't need your
I don't need it
I don't need your mercy kiss

    General CommentI saw the video for this song on their website(abandonedpools.com) and it is probably about a guy a girl teased, and then when he falls in love with her, she wants nothing to do with him.

    General CommentThanx Edge, that site helped a lot, the video adds a lot to the song. Kind of reminds me of The Middle, by Jimmy Eat World.

    General Commentactually edge... thats what the song is about but when i watched the video i kinda thought the guy didnt really mind the girl leading him on and stuff but in the end all he really wanted was his bike light back! haha! that was awesome.. i hate stupid girls like that.. i'll never be one!

    General Commentthis guy does anything he can for this girl and she just ignores him. he's nuts about her but she's got better things to do. finally, she realizes that he's givin her everything he's got, so she feels like the most she can do for him is to give him a lil love, or kiss, and he won't take it cuz he's sick of her shit and can do better

    General Commentthat's a pretty good interpretation.

    seems to me like he probably still wants her. but he wants to know that what they have is real

    what's the point of one little kiss without the love. now.. mercy sex on the other hand? ;)
