I'm careful not to fall
I have to climb your wall
'Cause you're the one
Who makes me feel much taller than you are
I'm just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Problems with the booze
Nothing left to lose

I'm weightless, I'm bare
I'm faithless, I'm scared

The face that fills the hole
That stole my broken soul
The one that makes me seem to feel much taller than you are
I'm just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Troubles with the gear
Nothing left to fear

I'm weightless, I'm bare
I'm faithless, I'm scared
I'm weightless, I'm bare
I'm faithless, I'm scared

With every bet I lost
And every trick I tossed
You're still the one who makes me feel much taller than you are
I'm just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Problems with the booze
Nothing left to lose

I'm weightless, I'm bare
I'm faithless, I'm scared
I'm weightless, I'm bare
I'm faithless, I'm scared
I'm weightless, I'm bare
I'm faithless, I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared

    My InterpretationThe protagonist is mentally sick.

    He only feels superior if he watches someone in secret which gives him a feeling of power over that person.

    It's all he has left 'I'm weightless, I'm bare. I'm faithless', but what makes the song really interesting is the confession 'I'm scared'.

    He has come to the realization that he has nothing left that's worth living for: 'On my own for far too long Problems with the booze Nothing left to lose'.

    He had gambled, lost many things, and he knows it's wrong what he's doing, but he can't stop being a peeping Tom because he's scared of what might happen to him once he loses that last bit that lifts him up a little from the ground.
