If I could just keep my stupid mind together
Then my thoughts would cross the land for you to see
No one sees you on a vampire planet
No one sees you like I do

Seconds click in which I'm changed to dust
Whithered roots of knots and hairy rust
No one sees you on a vampire planet
No one sees you like I do

I'm so sick of goodbyes, goodbyes
I'm so sick of goodbyes, goodbyes goodbyes
The night comes crawling in on all fours
Sucking up my dreams through the floor

I'm so sick
I'm so sick
Of goodbyes

I'm so sick of goodbyes, goodbyes
I'm so sick of goodbyes, goodbyes
I'm so sick, so sick, so sick of goodbyes, goodbyes
So... I'm so sick

    General CommentFay, you can't just come in and say the three people in front of you have no concept of what the song is about and not explain the song. Not to mention two of those three people weren't even talking about the meaning of the song. I'd bash you for being so big headed but I'll refrain, I think that's enough.

    I'd personally like to know what this song is about.

    General Commentto me, it seems to be about a guy who can't get his thoughts straight, and always regrets it. at the end of the day he feels like crap because he didn't accomplish/say any of the stuff he wanted to accomplish/say (The night comes crawling in on all fours / Sucking up my dreams through the floor)...
    i'm pretty sure that it's just about a guy having difficulty talking to a girl he likes (which is why he goes "no one sees you like i do.)

    Song MeaningSounds like a break up to me in which the singer cannot get his thoughts straight on why it ended (and he wishes he could truly tell the other how he feels). The lyrics about the seconds clicking, turning to dust and the night sucking up his dreams...these are all feelings one can go through when a relationship ends. Being alone at night is the worst...you stay up late thinking about it over and over but not in a productive way - the way that robs you of sleep/dreams.

    He doesn't want to say goodbye, he's sick of it. And it's almost making him sick - particularly this time when he feels so strongly about this other person.

    As for the vampire planet reference, I'm not sure what that means. I feel knowing that might change my perspective of the song. I think of a planet (other than Earth) as a lonely place, so perhaps she feeds off of a relationship then moves on to the next one, so she's always making herself end up alone until the next one. Perhaps the singer is helplessly in love with such a person, and he thinks he can see past that exterior actions and into her heart, while full well knowing that she'll probably not change her ways?

    General CommentI used to listen to this song pre-9/11 and thought nothing of it, really. But post-9/11, it made a little more sense.. er, I guess I shouldn't say that. It related a little more towards me.

    "Seconds click in which I'm changed to dust."

    That really hit home for me when I was watching all the men and women covered in ashes on TV. And then of chorus, "I'm so sick of goodbyes." Which is pretty obvious.
