Of all the great inventions constructed from the unstoppable molecule, nothing can resolve it's magnetic impulse to club me into silence. You broke my heart before I had the chance to fall in love. What am I supposed to do? You say those words,they're just beyond me. Where do you start when you are already in the middle of things? Do you love me? You canÕt say it but you can feel it. I wish ourselves the best.

    General CommentI don't think its THE best song.. grade's an amazing band but I think it's ONE OF their best. They have too many to pick just one. Definitely in this song, it's all about the part "Do you love me???" I love that.

    General CommentI think this song is about the inefficiency of emotion, guys. God I'm a genius for figuring that out.

    Nah, but really, what I'm thinking is that the lyricist was in one of those times where a bunch of emotional problems, stimuli, and obstacles were in the way...so many things were going wrong and it didn't matter how he felt about it, they still went wrong. I get that impression because of all the questions he asks, and the general incensed and passionate feeling that you can feel as he sings it. It's like he took a generalized frustration and emotional distress that existed on as many levels as possible and compacted it into a few short lyrics so charged with emotion that it's almost incapacitating.

    Great song. I scream along to it, too, mighteemmoouse. ;)

    General CommentWhat does that emotional distress signify in terms of this person's inner thoughts and psyche, though? The person's ability to make something from this situation of not being able to convey the stimulae that were pushing down on his/her inner soul?

    General CommentAll Grade songs have the feel of an epic to them: like mini operas, ignoring the standard form of contemporary music. The way the interchange between screaming and singing is used is brilliant - similar to Thursday. Every section of this song brings something new to it - a great work. I think a lot of it is about the struggle to be vocal about how you feel and what you want while others say them easily but might not even mean it. Not often do I find songs that I can relate to but this one I can in a real way. The title appealed to me, the lyrics say something without being too obvious or too deep and the way the song progresses is just amazing. I think they view emotions in the same way I do.

    General CommentI like how at the beginning it sounds all plinky with the guitar but he's screaming at the top of his lungs...I laughed at first but damn, it builds into one hell of a song.
