tell me about everywhere you've been
so i can hold it over your head
tell me about everyone you've known
memories of passionate friends
who's in the back of your mind
come on, there must be something you'd like to share
i won't say that nobody told me
you can never say that nobody cared
i won't get out
i'd rather burn
i won't trust scarred survivors
and i will never learn

looking for the story of another disbeliever
fascinated eyes open wide
every opportunity the eager receiver
tracing every step outside
don't back away from me now
there's a strategy i'm willing to use
stand in my path and i will state
cause there's some shit that i'm willing to lose
i won't get out
i'd rather burn
i won't trust scarred survivors
and i will never learn
tell me that you understand
tell me why you look concerned
tell me that you know
or i will never learn

    General Commentthis song is about trying to listen to a girl or a friend so they can get closer. its pretty simple. polvo may not be lyrical geniuses but they sure as hell are musical geniuses. great song.

    General CommentIt might actually be about someone who has the feeling he isn't able to communicate in the right way. And still he wants to comfort the friend.

    Actually the person seems to be some kind of an anti-hero who tries to understand human behaviour. Or am I going too deep?
