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.

    this 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.

    i 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...

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
