Can we take the next hour and talk about me?
Talk about me, oh we'll talk about me
Talk about me, and we'll only talk about me

Can we please take this hour and talk about me?
And my hatred for corporate magazines
You know they don't speak to me
The irony is they won't speak with me

I placed you on a window sill
Cut notches up and down the door
My surprise I woke up one morning
And there in your place lay a note

It read, "Baby, You love me just ain't good enough.
I found sunlight 6 hours away.
You watered me down 'til I drifted abound
Somewhere far from your shade."

I shadow my former self
Once holy now only a chest full of holes
red wax, it paints me unclear
When the big hand strikes 12, I disappear

Well the angels of fate can they lie to your face
Anything to keep you away
You watered me down 'til I drifted abound
Somewhere far from your shade

Now you on your back has buried the past
Can we please take this hour and talk about me?
Talk about me, oh we'll talk about me
Talk about me, and we'll only talk about me

Can we please take this hour and talk about me?
And my hatred for corporate magazines
You know they don't speak to me
The irony is they won't speak with me

    General Commenti love nate's voice in this song. and i like the line

    "I found sunlight 6 hours away."

    i think they're talking about san diego. because they're from arizona.. and san diego is 6 hours away. and san diego is a huge tourist spot for the arizonians. lol. that's my thought.

    General CommentAnyone have any idea what this song means?

    Obviously it's about a broken relationship and the end also foreshadows what the rest of the CD will talk about (Nate), but what do the lines "red wax, it paints me unclear" and "I placed you on a window sill/Cut notches up and down the door?"

    I haven't a clue about the first one and I know the first part of the second one is about placing a girl on a pedestal...but cut notches up and down the door? Like notches on his bed post or notches on your belt? Made it's for the times she's left and come back?

    Anyone else have any ideas?
