You don't know how you're coming across
You don't know what you're coming across
You don't know who you're coming across
You don't know how you're coming across
So you come undone

You don't know how you're coming across
Acting like you don't give a toss
Walking around like you're on some kind of cross
And it's a shame on you, the irony's lost
When you come undone
You come undone
You know, you come undone
You know, you know, you know

You don't know how you're coming across
You don't know how you're coming across
And I don't think that you're aware of the cost

So you come undone
You come
You come undone
You know, you know, you know

    My InterpretationThere's not much to the lyrics of the song. We're not told a story, but nonetheless, the message of the song is clear. And that's very important for a song in order to resonate with the audience. We're basically told if you're unsure of how you come across, you shouldn't pretend to be someone you're not. It's always better to stay true to yourself. And the main character in the song acts like a mentor figure to the person the song is addressed to. But the mentor lacks the right words in communicating his worry. Nonetheless, the message is clear. It's a cautionary tale.
