There are things I want to do but I don't know
If they will be with you, if they will be with you
There are things I want to say but I don't know
If they will be to you, if they will be to you
Listen ever get a feeling when you're taken by the hand
And led a course you can't command
Went to bed but I'm not ready
Baby I've been fucked already
Falling into line but I'm doing nothing
We've got nothing worth discussing.
Went to go but it's all hazy
People say I'm going crazy.

[Repeat all above]

[Bridge]

All I know is all I know
What I've done I leave behind and
I don't know what sort to find me.
All I know is all I know
What I've done I leave behind and
I don't know what sort to find me.
All I know is all I know
What I've done I leave behind and
I don't know what sort to find me.

    General CommentYes, it is "I don't want my soul to find me." That's about the saddest, most concisely eloquent expression of remorse that I've heard.

    General CommentI believe this song is about having meaningless sex with someone when you're both really drunk and you don't really know each other at all. It's a pretty amazing song too.

    General CommentThe title just explains the reasoning for the situation that he is in.

    General CommentThis song and The Concept are like a pair of anthems to guys who are too restless to settle down. Maybe this is the breakup speech he gave to the girl who he hurt even though he didn't want to (in The Concept).

    I believe he says:

    "what I've done I leave behind me,
    I don't want my soul to find me"

    General CommentI think this is about the person being unfaithful in a relationship, its like he is with someone whom he doesnt love/want to be with "There are things I want to do but I don't know
    If they will be with you, if they will be with you
    There are things I want to say but I don't know
    If they will be to you, if they will be to you"

    the chorus part is like he has come home and offered sex but doesnt want to partake "baby ive been fucked already"

    the end is like remorse for his actions but the remorse is introverted as opposed to being directed at the innocent party
