It's not, it's not what you give but it's what you kept
It's not, it's not who you kill but it's who you left

I am I am running in my head
I am I am lying on my left
I am I am growing in my bed
I am I am ...

It's not, it's not how you speak but it's what you said
It's not, it's not what you seek but it's what you have

I am I am running in my head
I am I am lying on my left
I am I am growing in my bed
I am I am...

It's not, it's not what it seems ... It's not what it seems
It's not, it's not what you leave but it's what you hold

I am I am running in my head
I am I am lying on my left
I am I am growing in my bed
I am I am ...

    General CommentI love this song in a deep, visceral way. i feel the song is about things not ending up as clearly causal as one had naively expected. it is a song about stasis, and the feeling of things turning out less than ideal but realism and lowered expectation comes to define the outlook of an adult in life. i am, i am, lying on my left. in bed. just being whatever i am. as if things turned out the way they did, because i didn't really care anyway. and I'm ok with that, because that is our lot in life. grow up, grow old, grow cold.
