And if it was just how you wanted
You'd be glued to his bones and his brain stem
And changing your image and attitudes
Won't bring you back into your bedroom
Amputating as he's waiting
He's unresponsive 'cause you're irresponsible
Little swinger your bottle is thinking too much
'Cause you're aiming to please way off target
And I'll tell you what you must already know
Of amputating that too slow

    General CommentI believe it is an exerpt from speech on why communism won't work-"If we seem nutty to you and if we seem funny to you, just remember the mighty oak tree was once a nut just like me" in the beginning and "I pray to god that one day he will grant me the power to reach out to people and give instant relief, cause you don't have instant relief. We been lied to so many times, that your suspicious mind, and when the right thing comes along, you don't believe in it. In this modern day and age we have instant coffee and instant tea--it is the reason we will never have communism in this country--it is because we will never believe in ourselves we will only listen to the mass majority. If anybodies making fun of you or criticizing you, you know you're on the right track" there's some pretty crazt sounding shit in their, but I basically agree with all of it. It's funny that I declared myself an atheist, found Death Cab, and declared myself pretty much a socialist closley after. I don't know if the band are any of these things, but maybe that's just another aspect that attracted me to this band.
