I know you're different

But I don't care anyways
I know you're changing
But that doesn't matter
I never liked you anyways
You know exactly what you have
And wait until it's gone
You're happier than ever
I guess we knew all along

Superstitions they talk about
You never listen... never listen
Mal-conditions that they have
You made fun of them all day

You know exactly what you have
And wait until it's gone
You're happier than ever
I guess we knew all along

Parties that you say you never got around to
Guess you weren't invited anyways
Nowadays...
Congratulations on your new trip
I Hope it ends the same way ours did

You know exactly what you have
And wait until it's gone
You're happier than ever
I guess we knew all along

    General Commentwow i love these lyrics. they kinda look like a cheap dashboard rip off though. i dunno all emo sounds the same, until the singers sing them from the heart. that's when they differentiate.

    General CommentYeah, these guys sound a little like Dashboard, but they don't have the same emotion in their songs. Its there, but not quite teh same. If you want to see some stuff thats got teh same feeling in the lyrics, look at some of the songs by Boldly Going Nowhere. They're a startup band, and they spread across pretty much the whole spectrum of punk, from emo, to indie, to the slower stuff.


    Hope you like it, Im their guitarist

    General Commenti think this song is probably about fish. specifically the poor bloke's girlfriend being one. "i know you're different", he laments. damn right, she's a fish. "but i don't care anyways", well, full points for open-mindedness. "i know you're changing"... perhaps *into* a fish. maybe she's some kind of half-woman half-fish. kinda like jeff goldblum in the fly, except with fish. "and wait until it's gone". perhaps a sombre reminder of her inherent mortality. after all, one hook in the mouth and his girl is gone forever :(

    more evidence for the aquatic bent to this song: "i never liked you anyways". ooh, he's fickle. maybe he's only just got wind of the smell. "you know exactly what you have" - gills, and a tiny little mouth. is that such a crime?! "you're happier than ever": denial? or true happiness at the lot of a humble haddock? "i guess we knew all along". well, lets face it, the constant opening and shutting of the mouth was always a dead giveaway.

    i could go on, but i think this proves my point. all in all, i'm pleased that emo songwriters have finally got over their somewhat childish preoccupation with failed relationships and broken hearts, and started to deal with the real issues affecting us. this song is only the tip of the iceberg, new songs from rival schools [of fish], dashboard codfish-inal, jimmy eat whelk, and saves the cray[fish] reflect this exciting new trend. i predict it's gonna make a big splash.
