Tired of looking sideways
But the things in black and white
No more, no more
Arguing my case to the wee hours of the night
What for? What for? What for?

Put it in your face and let the petals fall
Cursing your family name
Rather be unhappy that's the cause of it all
Panicked and hateful, with nothing to blame

That's a useful dream that pretended to explain
But no more, no more, no more

Superstition in the image of
One I already believe
Easier to use because I made it up to deal with the same things

Tired of looking sideways
But the thing's in black and white
What for? What for? What for?

    General CommentIt seems to me that this song is talking about how he would try to find a source for his problems (arguing my case to the wee hours of the night), when in fact the source was his own attraction to sadness (rather be unhappy that's the cause of it all). He blamed everything on his stepfather, and thought that with that realisation everything would be okay (put it in your face and let the petals fall, cursing your family name). That blame was useful, it helped him give his negative feelings a focus, but it was not the real problem (That's a useful dream that pretended to explain). He's tired of trying to find someone to blame and of trying to hide his pain and the truth, but realizes it plain to see (Tired of looking sideways, but the thing's in black and white). Beautiful song.
