All the trials you've endured
Around and around, the refrain
rings the same each time it's heard
Entertain the notion, that the only thing I hear
Is the crack of a smile, in a face that ain't so sincere

When measuring out your quality
It is only as deep as your modesty

As your insides fall to pieces
Shattered by the silent treatment
Things are only fragile till they break
Feigning your humility
It only serves to weaken the
Most common observations that you make
Drown me out in conversation
Surf a wave of provocation
Wash away my interest in your wake

I think you can, reach a place
where the impetus is pure
You'll understand, a disgrace
is the thing that makes us feel..

"Level on the inside, level on the outside"

I'm content to know it
I don't need to show it

    General CommentThis song is so awesome!

    I can't believe no one commented on it. I like the meaning of it, too. This person is trying to make the singer be, or do, something that isn't him. TThis person just talks crap to get their way and it's not working this time around.

    General CommentThis is a really good song. I cant beleive that its been out for so long with no comments. I think he is talking about mental disorders he or someone he knows may have and how that makes them feel on the inside. Level on the inside, level on the outside might mean that his mood is level or stable. I have bipolar disorder and i sorta feel like this song makes sense. These pills try to level you out but they dont really take it away.
