"Spleen" as written by and Michael J. Mushok....
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I feel I give everything to you
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I think there's nothing left to do
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I don't like today take it all away
Just like what you say I don't want you
Kinda like the way everything is gray
Just like what you say I don't need you
I don't look like you do the things you do
But I'm fucked up too I don't need you
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I feel you are what's changed my soul
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I think I'll never lose control
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I don't like today, take it all away
Just like what you say I don't want you
Kinda like the way, everything is gray
Just like what you say I don't need you
I don't look like you, do the things you do
But I'm fucked up too I don't need you
I don't understand it
You're killing this planet
The scabs on your face
It's a fucking disgrace
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I'm don't like today, take it all away (shut up)
Just like what you say - I don't want you (shut up)
Kinda like the way, everything is gray (shut up)
Just like what you say I don't need you (shut up)
I don't look like you, do the things you do (shut up)
But I'm fucked up too - I don't need you (shut up)

    General Commenthere i think he's torn over someone, he despises them, yet in a way he feels his very life depends on them for him to live. The simple 'i need you' at the end of the chorus suggests that regardless of how much he feels they mean nothing to him, or how much he tries not to think about them, he still needs them (presuming its a her) to live his live, he just cant live without his hate...

    but the 'scabs on her face its a fucking disgrace' suggests abuse, maybe its a personal response to someone he knows, he wants nothing to do with her yet feels he cant do without her...

    General Commenti think this song is about a relationship where he gives her everything she wants and he gets nothing in return so he is basically telling her to f*ck off

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of a friend that I have. I love her deeply, but she has a boyfriend. Not too bad, but her boyfriend treats her like shit. I blame him. See what I'm getting at?

    General Commenti think the beginning is wrong cuz it goes:

    Cant Breath!
    Shut up! Shut up!
    I feel i give everything to you.
    Cant Breath!
    Shut up! Shut up!
    I think there's nothing left to do
    Cant Breath!
    Shut up! Shtup!

    General CommentI fell for some girl pretty hard one time and she completely fucked me over. I thought she cared for me as much as I did for her but then she left out of the blue without so much as a goodbye. I dedicated this song to her and never heard from her again. I hope to hell she got the message, bitch. Anyway, I guess what goes around comes around.
