She is his capitol.
He is her state.
Theirs is a bond,
Nothing can break.
They are inseparable.
I’m envious.
But this cant be it,
What they call success.

It must be wonderful
To be so miserable.

These are the elements,
Inertia and fear.
That drove them together,
And they wound up here.
Nobody offered them
A better idea,
A decent excuse,
A ride out of here.

It must be wonderful
To be so miserable.

Arms always reaching for,
Something to hold.
When you lose a limb
You still feel I’m told.
For years ever after can be deceived
Into believing into believing what can’t be believed.
It must be wonderful.

    General Commentthis song is awsome, and i think its talking about how some prople think love will make everything just *perfect*. Maybe two people that have been together sense highschool and never thought someone else could be better.

    General Commenti agree, but it is a some what disturbing and sad song, but yet still good; or maybe I feel that way since I am not in a good position right now in my life...
