I resort to impulse to escape the living
Face down in your indifference
Waiting to fall in line
And I was never impressed
With your addiction to conscience

Pain has long been the lost humiliation of genius
And I've been misled to believe that I was alone
It always turns out better this way
Sedated so you won't have to feel a thing

I resort to impulse to escape the living
Counting the imperfections
Down the lines of my face
When all the regrets and failures
In you were so obvious

Pain has long been the lost humiliation of the soul
And I've been caught between
What's real and what's for sale
I'm not the one who profits
From stainless masquerades
I've come to terms with my fixations
And all your failing attempts
Faithful performances
The timelessness of your act
Won't be the end of me

    My InterpretationTo me this song is a simultaneous condemnation of conformity for its negative effects on society and a celebration of individuality. Resorting to impulse reflects the sudden desire to escape those around you for the mistreatment of uncommon traits which do not fit within the social constructs of today's culture. He is pointing out the overwhelming negativity towards those who operate outside of what is accepted. This behavior forces those who are outcasted to self-critique when the true fallacy is not accepting people for who they are. Thus "count the imperfections in the lines on my face, when your regrets and failures are so obvious". It is easy to criticize what you don't understand, but we must not answer in kind, even when reciprocating judgement would be easy. The last portion of the song is a message to those who relate to this over-arching message: I know who I am, and I will be true to myself, and I will not allow the opinions of others define my character.
