If your right hand is causing you pain
Cut it off, cut it off
If your colours have started to run
Let them all run, run away from you

There is lightning in this room
Above our heads, waiting to strike
I'm a thinker not a talker
Put your faith, your faith in God

We were hoping for some romance
All we found was more despair
We must talk about our problems
We are in a state of flux

I'd kill for an adventure
Just you and I, in the Curzon Bar
Dancing till we knew
So all that we've learnt disappears

When you shouted at me
I saw my father in the second grade
Concerned and kind
Yet unable to reach me

We were hoping for some romance
All we found was more despair
We must talk about our problems
We are in a state of flux

State of flux (4 TIMES)

We need to talk (5 TIMES)

We were hoping for some romance
All we found was more despair
We must talk about our problems
We are in a state of flux

    "If your right hand is causing you pain,
    cut it off, cut it off" means that if the one closest to you causes you pain and sorrow, you should seperate yourself from him/her. And the next part of the verse is probably that you shouldn't have to try to keep your friends close, they will always be there if they are true friends, so the ones who's letting go is not worth you.

    The lightning in the room, they sing about, is probably the tension between them, and they know they have to talk about it, but they try not to, thats why he says he's not a talker. to avoid the conversation that will end it.

    Then they go on with their longing for an adventure. I think its because they need to get away for a while and do something together that will make them forget their problems(him-and-the-loved-girl) That way they will find back to their old love.

    And yeah, they both want to stay together but they have alot of problems they need to talk over :-))

    song is about someone who is stuck...wants to talk and is looking to fix their love before it is lost...their relationship is in limbo.
