Painting pictures of broken pasts, (putting one word over another) when colours never man, hopes and dreams in menageries, (never leaving a trace) now the shards fall on the ground, with our hopes and with our minds, (take it because i'm sick) gluing our hope back together, only to break another day, i am not who you thought i was, i don't even know who the fuck i am seeing, i saw your picutre in a photograph and that's where i thought i dwelt, in you, make me like it, make me like myself, we're so imperfect, our struggles are imperfect, you'll never take it thought i know you'll try, you'll never take it all,(all these imperfect things) this is a statement, a statement of self-respect.

    General CommentNo comments eh?

    This song is so gorgeous. It describes the tragic hopelessness of all relationships. By saying, "we are so imperfect" he is showing how flawed all interactions with others really are. Eventually, he decides to let go, thus indicating he has finally mustered enough courage, enough self-respect to do so.
