I'm not feeling human anymore
Half connected all the time
Each night I document the things I've done
The pointless points I've made for stupid reasons
Every night I'm always the sameYou're pounding on my brain
Tonight and every night I lie down clenching up my teeth
Trying to fall asleep
I've sat and smoked a billion cigarettes
And wished to hell that you were here
My stained and calloused fingers hold a pen
Scratching apologies to you too late too little
Every night I pay off my debts
Trust me I don't forget
Tonight and every night I will analyze everything
And make myself count the ways
I fucked up today

    General CommentSequencing is genius on this album... first it's "I, Robot", where he's saying "I am a robot, I'm not human!", then leads right into this track, which starts off "I'm not feeling human anymore"

    From literal to figurative

    General CommentReading the lyrics now it sounds like it could be about a break up or something like that ("scratching apologies to you too late too little") that happened as a result of the singer's poor behavior / decisions. That's probably why he's "not feeling human anymore" and "half-connected all the time".

    But I always looked at it another way. It was crippling in high school but I still experience some of it to this day - and that is, I was always really hard on myself. Like, oh my god, I can't believe I said that. That was so stupid. Or I can't believe I acted so lame in gym class. That girl could definitely tell I'm a loser. Etc. etc. That kind of thing. And maybe it's a bit different nowadays but I still tend to second guess every thing I do and say. Every night.

    The song is somber yet at the same time it's caressing, loving. I get subtle joyous vibes from this beneath the sadness. It's like, despite the fact I second guess everything I do, despite the fact that I fuck up every day (whether real, or as in my case, imagined) I am a human being. And beautiful just like this song.

    Love it.
