you can't always pick the dog you find
maybe I wasn't what you had in mind
but I could love you
I could love you
I could love you a lot
I'm here and I wonder if I'm lost
'cause I can't seem to understand
the way I feel
I'm not here to be a creep
I'm just feeling
incomplete
take me home

if I wasn't here I wouldn't mind
but it's you up there and I'm so far behind
I could love you
I could love you
I could love you alot
she says I'm the one she really wants
but I'll never be the one the she needs
I'm not here to be a creep
I'm just feeling
incomplete
take me home

    General CommentThis is obviously a statement of the person feeling inadequate because of the girl(or whatever) and trying his best to be in the same league as her. The person isn't really that miserable, he just gets that impression from her...likely she is narcissistic or self-fulfilled, as the album's theme tends to suggest.
    This is, overall, a kick-ass song with an awesomely symbolic video, from a truly talented and intelligent group of artists.

    General CommentI think this songs about a guy who's girlfriend's trying to change him or is angry at him cuz of his personality(you can't always pcik the dog you find, maybe I wasn't what you had in mind). He's had a change in his feelings for his girlfriend, but doesn't want to hurt her(I'm here and I wonder if I'm lost
    'cause I can't seem to understand the way i feel I'm not here to be a creep I'm just feeling incomplete). He makes up an excuse for breaking up with her, though(she says I'm the one she really wants
    but I'll never be the one the she needs).

    General CommentOkay. This song was inspired by a shroom trip where Trevor Hurst (lead singer) felt like he was inside the body of his family dog.

    The "dog you find" refers to a stray puppy, but the puppy hasn't been housebroken so it pisses and shits all over the floor, but it really doesn't mean to ("I'm not here to be a creep"). The "feeling incomplete" signifies both the puppy's lack of a loving family and proper training not to shit on the floor. Still, it just wants to be taken home and loved.

    The puppy also has a lot of love to give, but it realizes that though it is wanted for the family's amusement, it's not actually needed for the family's overall happiness.
