Depressed by the smiles, all the phonies, and the fakes.
Depressed because everything's so far away.
Depressed by every sound this fucking machine makes.
Depressed by the sky's color, gray today.

(Is it too late to tell you I meant every word of what I said? I'm always dead.)

Capsized by the hostile climate that I'm in.
Capsized by the swarms of nothingness.
Capsized by waves of loneliness and still regretting.
Capsized into the sea of endless selfish distress.

Bottoms up to bottom out in the middle of nowhere.

(I kind of knew it would come to this, when you've got a problem, you've got a fucking problem.)

We suck on every play. Just spoiled teens. Don't give a fuck cos I'll pay my way. I'm letting this slip out of control. I'm letting it slip.

Tonight I'm sorry for everything I've done to you. Paint a picture of it all perfect and blue. Hey lady, I'm sorry for everything I've done for you and I'm sorry...
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

(Try to be mean. Try to be...)

    General CommentMestFaNatic82 is a pathetic dickweed. I hope he dies of AIDS the fuckhole. They sound fuck all like the Strokes, dumbass, and their music desecrates and pisses on them and everything they stand for. Just because you live on your own watching porn in your underwear and eating cold baked beans out of a tin all day doesn't mean you should take out your lonliness and bitterness on a kickarse punkrock band with brilliant lyrics and superb songs. Dickhead.

    General Commentfred39 is damn right. you are a sad loser. i wouldnt go as far as the aids bit, but I do think you should have your fucking eyes pulled out.
    This band is about all that punk is meant to be, not frigging mest. get taste, grow up and find some friends.

    General CommentThe Icarus Line sounds like the Strokes the way a freight train sounds like a Vespa.

    Anyway, yeah this song kicks some serious ass and, overall, is pretty self-explanatory.

    General CommentI think at the beginning at least it's about the frustration he feels at the music industry as a whole ("Depressed by the smiles, all the phonies, and the fakes") and touring in particular ("Depressed because everything's so far away").

    The machine in the third line could either be the band's van or the industry "machine" or one as a metaphor for the other.
