    "there's no accounting for taste, i guess" she said "since you mirror everyone that you ever met" "don't worry, i'll see you soon" and i believed you since then i haven't seen you but in better times, you were a friend of mine you were the one who said, "i don't mind"

    from my house to the bus stop, i see a dodge dart fall off it gets scary in the heart again well i didn't choose this, class was the culprit pissed off that we blew it and my best behaviors, to be my behaviors next time you lay eyes on me i don't wanna try, i don't wanna try some things should come naturally but if they don't you just can't force them cause if they won't you just can't force them

    (thrusting on the ???) your foot down on the gas never looking back, you are the lucky one indifferent like a free way, stuck within a freeze frame five by seven nightmare and youth for the lucky ones everywhere i go you've colored

    please leave the car in the morning i feel old, i get ugly when you're sad afraid i'd lost the best i've ever had i'm placing the 'x' on you i really wish i didn't have to the kids outside the south break bottles in the gutter

    "Kenna Conklin. I dated Kenna for three years and had a puppy-love kind of crush on her for a year before that. Anyway, she drove a Dodge Dart. Once, we actually blew-out two tires and ended up flipped in a ditch on the way to record You Secretly Want Me Dead. After we broke up, I’d look for her car everywhere. You couldn’t miss it. It was baby blue and had a huge Tilt sticker in the back window. Goddamnit, I would spot her in the weirdest places at the weirdest times. There are so many songs about Kenna. Almost all of Nothing Makes Sense Without It and You Secretly Want Me Dead. I can’t believe the songs I wrote about her. It’s weird to sing them now because I don’t feel very connected to that pain. I feel no resentment now, but I’m still the victim in all those songs. I never wanted to be the victim at the time, but I was sad and I didn’t get shit. And that’s why she left me. Because I was sad and I didn’t get shit. It’s so obvious as you pull the camera back. ”Dodge Dart,” “All Else Failed,” “Two Violins”… those are all songs about losing Kenna."

    this song is really really hard to understand at times, which is probably why the lyrics are nowhere to be found on the internet. towards the end, where it says "the friend i've lost", it also sounds to me like he could be saying "afraid i've lost", and where it says "my poison hangs on you", my friend thinks it sounds like "my life depends on you", which makes a little more sense, but i think it sounds more like the other way. but he helped out a lot on the other parts from 1:22 on. he's a good guy.

    "There's no accounting for taste, I guess," she said. It's just that you mirror everyone that you've ever met. "Don't worry, I'll see you soon," and I believed you. But since I haven't seen you. But in better times you were a friend of mine. You were the one who said, "I don't mind." From my house to the bus stop I see a Dodge Dart. I fall off and it gets scary in my heart again. I didn't choose this. Clenched fists and cold breath. Pissed off that we blew it. So my best behavior is to be on my behavior next time you lay eyes on me. But I don't want to "try." Some things should come naturally. But if they don't, you just can't force them. It's rusted on the side. You foot's down on the gas. You're never lookin' back. You are the lucky one. Indifferent like a freeway stuck within a freeze frame. A 5x7 nightmare and youth is for the lucky ones. Everywhere I go you've colored. Please leave the car in the morning. I feel old and I get ugly when I'm sad. I'm afraid I lost the best I ever had. I'm placing the X on you. I really wish I didn't have to. White kids outside the Sev break bottles in the gutter.

He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Holiday

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
