Set apart, great divides
You are not what you seem, always different, always changing
It brings the worst out of me, and it's here to stay
That's the way it's always been for men
Always on your attire silences what you think and now you're wearing eyeliner
So lie
Now see how you look in the light not so different it's hard for you to swallow
Don't change a single thing at least not for me just keep on acting
It's maddening its flashbulb thoughts it's contrasting
Can't decide who you are no feelings plagues my head we'll all be specimens
It's your fault, fucking up the kids
Complaints have all been heard we're tired we're bringing out the dead
Where's the first you that I knew

    General CommentI get the impression this song is supposed to be about a friend who is a trendhopper - Always changing his appearances, the music he listens to, etcetera; I especially get that impression from the lines "You're not what you seem, always different, always changing," "Always on your attire, silences what you think, and now you're wearing eyeliner," and "Where's the first you that I knew?"

    General Commenti think its about the music industry and how fashion is put before actual talent and content, and how all the kids look up to the stars trying to be like them or whatever
