you tell me not to be me,
and you tell me,
that my love is so worthless--

i cant hear the words that you tell me,
i cant hear them hear, them just let me go

but you don't see inside of me,
and you cant judge what you cant understand
and you laugh at my childlike dreams,
and think i'm better off in your scheme--

you will never know what its all about,
shut your fucking mouth,
just shut your fucking mouth.
i cant hear the words that you tell me
i cant hear them,
just let me go.
but you don't see what im gonna be,
im gonna be the man that you cant understand
and you laugh at my foolish thoughts,
you'll wind up choking on the words you brought

because,
you will never know what its all about,
so shut your fucking mouth,
just shut your fucking mouth.

i cant hear the words, that you tell me
i cant hear them,
just let me go.

i cant hear you--(can you hear me?) hear me??

i cant hear the words, that you tell me--i cant
hear them, just let me go--but you don't see
inside of me, and you cant judge--what you cant
understand and you laugh at my childlike dreams,
and think i'm better of in your scheme--

i cant hear you, fucking hear me.
i cant hear you, fucking hear me.

    General CommentI think this song is about the emotions of hating the people that count their chickens before they hatch. I think its the hate that comes from people that judge you before they know you, or dont understand the situation.
    "i cant hear you, fucking HEAR ME"

    General CommentI believe, like the others, this is a song about people who are supposed to be close to him who doubt him and feel like he'd be better off listening to their ideals. Funny, this song not only shows how much he's grown as a writer, but it also proves all those naysayers wrong. He's done amazing for himself, and he's an uber talented and accomplished musician.
