"Luv Your Life" as written by and Daniel Johns....
Thrust the candle to the dark of your disease
Burn the fish plate execute ill memories
Labyrinth of sympathy in which I'm lost and can't leave
And too much truth overshadows the lime lies
And what lies beneath the clouds is an
Altered perception and I'll pay for sanity
But sanity don't come cheap

You don't know the truth and I love your life
Flinch against the fire but this ain't winter
And I'm all by myself the way I want to be
Where I'm content to be to be all by myself
But frozen eyes are bound to melt.

    General CommentThis song seems to be rather miserable, despite what most people get from the title.
    "...and I'll pay for sanity but sanity don't come cheap" means he'd give anything to be happy, to be normal, but he feels it's something he'll never have, or something he'll have to work harder than anyone else to have. "You don't know the truth/and I love your life," seems to me, that Johns is saying that he is jealous of people who never see the bad aspects of life, never notice the harsh truth of things, and he wishes he had their ignorance because it's better than living in the bitterness of reality, he's telling them to love their lives because they're better than his own.

    General Commenti forget where i read it, it could have been on chairpage, but daniel had said he wrote this song about therapy and he was sitting talking to his psychologist thinking about how so many fans say the songs have helped them through shit and he thought that not everyone is as fortunate as he is to be able to afford a good psychologist. and that's where this song came from.. not a direct quote, but you get the idea.

    General CommentYeh this song is an awesome song....ppl confuse this song as a luv song. But i agree with WastedYouth but i think it talks bout how ppl have their own problems and how it affects them. In this way we all think that sumone elses life is better than ours- "..and u dont know the truth and i luv ur life...."

    General Commentlol i think it's sad that some people don't mature along with a band's music. i like this song a lot. i almost forgot how amazing daniel's voice is. this is definitely their best cd so far.

    General Commentyou know what, screw off "hippypippypunkska" first of all, your screen name is nothing but a huge label for our over oppressed society..so go drown in 1 foot of water... if you liked silverchair's older stuff..then you must like their newer stuff.. you cannot just diss the maturity of their music.. just because their style of music has changed over the years..that is what makes bands so beautiful.. so don't screw over silverchair just because you cannot appreciate their uniqueness...thank you, that is all.

    General CommentI just saw the video for this song. It's pretty cool, sorta like "yellow submarine" type animation, only with better graphics. I really enjoyed this song, and hippypippypunkska sounds like a troller to me. But then again, everyone's entitled to their opinion. I would have to agree on the whole with what's been said above. It isn't a typical love song...
