You've been checking on my facts
And I admit I have been lax
In double-screening what I say
It wasn't funny anyway

I stand corrected

No one cares when you are wrong
But I've been at this far too long
To act like that when we should be
In perfect harmony

I stand corrected

Lord knows I haven't tried
I'll take my stand
One last time
Forget the protocol
I'll take your hand
Right in mine

I stand corrected

    General CommentI think that he loves this girl, but he can't stand the way that she can't leave anything that he says alone without finding some obscure meaning, distorting it, and holding it against him. He can't stand that she won't admit that she has her own issues. It kind of follows on from Oxford Comma, maybe? I don't know.
    I find that the first half of the song is really sarcastic, but when he "forget[s] the protocol" he wants to just let everything go, and just be with her. He wants to ignore her constant nagging, and her inability to be wrong. Maybe he can.
