Chiodos – Intensity In Ten Cities lyrics

I'm not the one that you want, I'll only let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for my... '

I think it's every time I walk into a room
A silence so sudden that I seem to hear it
(Smiles turn to frowns)
Contact saying that you are the rain on their parade.

And how long could you hang on to a word?
Tell me, how long could you hang on to a word?

I'm not the one that you want, I'll only let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for myself'

Or maybe it's all eyes on him
In love with ego and intention
The eyes that are just begging me for more.
This is gone and I can see it
Your head is full of words,
Full of words that don't mean anything.

And how long could you hang on to a word?
Tell me, how long could you hang on to a word?

I'm not the one that you want, I'll always let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for myself'

I'm not the one that you want, I'll always let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for myself'
(If that's how you feel, then what's there to do?
I'll keep this feeling in my heart
But when you look in my eyes, you will know the truth.)

    This is such an intense song. Its like hes hurting and wants to be with this girl but knows right now he can't and wonders if she will ever know the true meaning why hes not the one she wants he wants so badly to pull away from her and his angwish but for some reason can't its like hes shouting out to her telling her how he wants her to view how he feels. I love this song.

    Very intense! He's feeling like giving up. That his mask of strength and tenacity is finally failing and he's giving admittance that he's not good enough. He feels as if he's being looked upon as his true self "a disappointment" but gives the possibility that he's only feeling sorry for himself. He thinks people see him as having a big ego and just full of words that don't mean anything.

    My ex has this on his profile
    he'sgone emo ever since the break up and alwas thinks that he's not good enough. I love him as a friend, and I care for him inso many ways, but the same feelings that were there before jus arent there now. I get so sad when I hear him say that he's never good enough, and dat, like the song says, he'll only let me down.

    First off, I *Love* this song! Craig projects such emotion that I can't help but get a little weepy when I listen to it.
    My personal opinion regarding the lyrics is that he's talking about his own misgivings and insecurities regarding his/the band's success. I think he's speaking of his fear that he won't live up to the expectations of the fans. Maybe I'm just getting this impression because of last summer's failed (thank god) suicide attempt, but that's what I take away from this song - that he's afraid he isn't good enough.
    Again - my opinion. You provide your own salt.
