Mine is an act of love
Mine is a wish to solve
And mine is to sink by your side
You are to be amused
And you are never to be confused
In your first love
Your first time
Why a doll so they tell me
Cause she is mine
Faith and fully mine
I must say
This love hasn’t changed me
Cause I feel fine
Faith and fully mine

I must have seen too much skin
Much more than I needed to
And much more than I wanted to dream
I must have felt so much pain
It’s funny how some things do remain
It isn’t true that things do change
Isn’t it strange how pain remains
But don’t look sad cause it isn’t sad
Now that I have you to myself

    General Commentokay. this is post bar comments. I am making a compilation for someone. Figured I should know what the songs ment.

    This song over the course of 35 minutes has given too many meanings...

    I have not looked the lyrics up on othr sites.
    here's what I think...

    I think this is song is about making a friend into a love. "sink by your side" " And much more than I wanted to dream "
    the doll is ...a sex toy....

    about dating someone because of thier beauty. being a doll. Just something pretty to look at ...no substance...
    "And you are never to be confused "

    and lastly...
    it's about an older person dating a person way younger than themselves...with no experience.."in your first love, you're first time' 'so they tell me' is ridicule to which he responds 'Faith and fully mine '

    I don't usually post. so...tell me I am wrong.

    General CommentTaxidermy, literally, moving skin. "I must have seen...too much skin. Much more, than I needed to..."

    It’s funny how some things do remain
    It isn’t true that things do change
    Isn’t it strange how pain remains
    But don’t look sad cause it isn’t sad
    Now that I have you to myself

    Though the flesh is preserved, he still feels pain for the loss.

    General CommentHas no one here ever picked up a book? This song much like the others on the album is a classic literary reference. This song is about Pygmalion, a man who falls for a statue or human-like 'doll' because she is so lovely and perfect. I dont want to be rude, but some times actually read over what you type so you dont sound like a total uneducated moron.

    General CommentThis song is so brilliantly written. I love the guy's voice. And I especially love the part where the music fades after the first stanza, and the guitar comes back in with the pausing strumming. So good to me...

    General CommentUhhh....how many memories....But the lyric doesn't deserve the impressive, beautiful music. And because the music is so sad, the last verses don't make much sense :-). Anyway, a very interesting song.

    General Commentindeed it is a great song, 4 posts later here comes an opinon on what the song actually means... i may be taking this song title too literally but i think this song has to do with giving up on real lovers because they are dishonest and or just a pain in the ass, unlike a doll which is "faith and fully mine"... reminds me of the police song "be my girl"

    General CommentFor one thing, this song reminds me irresistably of "Fullmetal Alchemist" and I can't think why.

    For another, I suspect it may be about "V." by Thomas Pynchon. In "V.," especially the chapter "V In Love," there's lots of stuff with fetishes and at one point a girl masturbates against a mannequin. Also, by the end of the book, V. herself is largely made of false parts, which would explain the "isn't it strange how pain remains?" -- as in, amputees have said that there is sometimes a phantom sensation, like an itch.

    General CommentPerhaps it has to do with a non reciprocating lover that is so hard and cold she is like a doll.
