"Lose" as written by and Louis Knox Barlow....
Can't believe a single word I've said
And every subject's the only one that's dead
And there's nothing from my side
Just yourself
You'll split
I'll began
'Bout to fight
Greatest stories pass, in my mind
Must be a better way to pass my time
To think the focus just belongs to me
Selfish man, I know I'm nothing to me
So when I thought I had more to say
Swimmin' in my head
Chained to this corpse
For one more day
Little lies start around
Not a show, feel so down
And I struggle right inside out
Reach the wall, spiral down
Wretchedness
I'm hardly standing still
I'll be there
Sometimes thinking right
I can't believe I was chosen to exist
Cause only Jesus Christ can slit his wrists, he says
So though we kill this need to always understand
Cut the world and tell me it fits on the back of your hand

    General CommentLyrics according to Lou:
    Can't believe a single word I've said
    And every subject's only one that's dead
    And there's nothing from my side
    Just this selfish shit I've beaten back to hide

    creating stories dancing in my mind
    Must be no better way to pass my time
    To think the focus just belongs to me
    Selfish moron, I know I'm nothing to be believed

    just when I thought I had more to say swimming in my head
    Chained to this corpse for one more day

    Little eyes dart around
    i deserve feel so down
    i deserve to rot Inside out
    Race the walls, spiral down
    momentum builds till i'm burning standing still


    Sometimes, thinking right I can't believe I was chosen to exist
    Because only Jesus Christ himself can ever live through he says
    Son go and kill this need to always understand
    Cut the world and tell me it fits on the back of your hand

    General CommentI always figured the title was a play on "Lou's" as in Lou's song. Great tune.
