Mayday Parade – Keep In Mind, Transmogrification Is A New Technology lyrics

[Intro]
I am selfish when I need you,
I am the blister inside of the wall in the back of your room.

[Verse 1]
Watch the sea turn away from the shore
And head back out the way that it came.
If you were chasing your love you wanted enough,
Then it's best just to walk away.
Tell yourself your pride is just the same,
Trying not to count the days 'til mine gets washed away.
Carry your head up along the way.

[Pre-Chorus]
You'll say you had the courage and it got to the hero,
Even when they're on your side.
Let's watch the middle fade away 'til it's all gone.

[Chorus]
I am selfish when I need you,
I am the blister inside of the wall in the back of your room.
I am the envy of what you're afraid to write,
And that's fine.

[Verse 2]
Seems to me like everyone around here is just waiting.
I don't wanna move cause it's just enough,
I don't wanna blink cause I might miss it,
Tell me when it get's to be too much,
Carry your head up along the way.

[Pre-Chorus]
You'll say you had the courage and it got to the hero,
You tell me but he's on your side.
We'll watch the middle fade away 'til it's all gone.

[Chorus]
I am selfish when I need you,
I am the blister inside of the wall in the back of your room.
I am the envy of what you're afraid to write,
And that's fine.

[Bridge]
All we need is a place we can be alone,
Just with you and with me,
And without all this desperate weight that I have.
All I want is to just be honest,
You're the peace that I just found out I'm into
And I don't see you, anymore!

[Chorus]
I am selfish when I need you,
I am the blister inside of the wall in the back of your room.
I am the envy of what you're afraid to write,
And that's fine.

[Outro]
You had the courage and it got to the hero,
And everybody's on your side.
We'll watch the middle fade away 'til it's all gone,
I just want to waste your time.

    I personally think this song about someone who is close to a person with depression or another mental illness. I think this because of the lyric "you'll say you lack the courage and the guts of a hero" many with depression often look down upon themselves. They tell themselves this but don't realize there are people waiting to help. For example, "and everybody's on your side." Being close to a person with depression is hard and I know that first-hand. I could be wrong about this song. I'm not going to say that this song is exactly about what I just said, but to me that's what it means. It could be about something totally different. All I know is that I love this song a lot.
