Affected by what you had lost
They're not the habits you'd protect
At any cost
Blur the details of your hand
Anything your barren conscience
Can't defend
The limits of attention span
Successive thoughts you don't have
But you still pretend
Keep on talking anyway
Protected by what you know
No one will ever say
Because you can't be pure
You're self-assured

    General CommentI have no idea what this song's about, it's so vague. I'll tell you what though, this was one of the first songs of theirs that I heard, and its simplicity is genius, I love it.

    General CommentI was listening to Helmet in HS so a lot of the songs I relate to the idiots to worried about their image and not enough to learn a little discipline to hold down a job.
    No one is going to war for Ambercrombe & Fitch, but it sure was important that they be seen wearing it every day.

    I think this song is about people whos personality is made up solely on name brands and praise from others who value material things way too much.
