All life is a mystery,
All things come to he who waits
All things just a twist of fate
It's just a state of mind
All your time is not your own
It's real hard to find out why
It's real hard to say good-bye
To move on down the line...

Both your eyes wide open
You see the shape I'm in
It wasn't of my choosing
It's only bones and skin
And I will plead no contest
If loving you's a crime
So go on and find me guilty
Just one more fucking time

All your life is in your head
All you dreams are in your sleep
And if your dreams are hid too deep
They're just a waste of time
When you try to chase the dream
You never seem to know the time
You never recognize the signs
And nothing's what it seems

Both your eyes wide open
You see the shape I'm in
It wasn't of my choosing
It's only bones and skin
And I will plead no contest
If loving you's a crime
So go on and find me guilty
Just one more fucking time

And if I would have been a bad man
You would have seen the good in me
You would have seen the other
The good man I could be
But since I am a good man
The same was all the same
Nothing I could do, nothing I could do

All life is a mystery,
All things pass you by in time
All things just a perfect crime
It's just the way we are
All instincts let you down
It's not a case of love in vain
It's not a case of love insane
It's enough to break your heart

Both your eyes wide open
You see the shape I'm in
It wasn't my idea
That I be the one to sin
And so all those years together
Weren't worth a fucking dime
So go on and find me guilty
Just one more fucking time
And so all our years together
Weren't worth a fucking dime
So go on and find me guilty
Just one more fucking time
And so all our years together
Weren't worth a fucking dime
So go on and find me guilty
Just one more fucking time

    Couldn't disagree with you more, he's clearly not at fault at all. I believe it's because he'd done nothing wrong but loved her too much, many women are scared by this and prefer the typical arsehole. This song completely describes my situation with my ex perfectly.

    My Interpretation

    This song really spoke to me when I was going through hard times, and my body was taking the punishment. I think of it exclusively as a body speaking to its lost and self-abusive mind. Maybe I'm just messed up in that way, but I think it fits pretty perfectly.

    I'm better now, but the meaning stuck. :-)

    to me i think this song is about how a guy is in a perfect relationship with this woman he really loves but regretfully has a one night stand.

    "if i was a bad man you would have seen the good in me" means that he's been the ideal partner and the relationship was taken for granted.

    he realises how stupid he has been and pleads to the woman to take him back cos he still loves her and has spent a long time with her.

    It might just be somme kind of love song, but about existence. The final hymn to life of a man who's teared apart by the fact he has to leave it. (Or i may be totally missing the point also)

    I think it's about after break up after long term relationship. When guy is confessing that he loved too much and gave quite too far much from himself and for that, even when he did whatever else, things which were just minor stuff in compare of, but on the end, he was totally devalued, ( all this year's together, werent worth..) even or because he was just too good, no bad guy kind of u lust in , so been fated to end up badly hurt and angry on the end, because even if he did whatever else, or been trying very hard not to love that much,.. But. looser is always who loves u more.

    I see this song highlighting some of the intrapersonal conversation regarding addiction. The idea of relationship is heavy as previously noted, but it takes a deeper meaning in saying well fuck it let's play into the addiction (I.e. sex, drugs, booze, whatever.). Face it, the dudes a rockstar. I believe he's playing into the role here, as he should, but it's his Intrapersonal agreement to the systemic self he has created. I think it's brilliant writing.

    I believe this song refers to a man who felt disposable at the end of a long relationship.

    The description fits with the average "good guy" who failed at preventing that his relationship turned cold as years past by. One day he woke up and realized it was over, even though he was a good man to his companion.

    The underlying thought is that maybe, just maybe, had he been an asshole but still a passionate lover, his companion would have looked at everything he could become one day, instead of looking at everything that he wasn't on present.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.
