I think i'll go home and mull this over
Before i cram it down my throat
At long last it's crashed, it's colossal mass
Has broken up into bits in my moat.

Lift the mattress off the floor
Walk the cramps off
Go meander in the cold
Hail to your dark skin
Hiding the fact you're dead again
Undeneath the power lines seeking shade
Far above our heads are the icy heights that contain all reason

It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
That let us bet when you know we should fold
On rocks i dreamt of where we'd stepped
And of the whole mess of roads we're now on.

Hold your glass up, hold it in
Never betray the way you've always known it is.
One day i'll be wondering how
I got so old just wondering how
I never got cold wearing nothing in the snow.

This is way beyond my remote concern
Of being condescending

All these squawking birds won't quit.
Building nothing, laying bricks.

    I think the initial verse could be applied to many situations, and the entire song, for that matter, but i think what resonates with me most is how it seems to mirror an inner struggle to become the person you want to be. You want to be the person who likes everyone and is liked as a result; however, your social experiences and shyness have carved grooves into your character and and it's almost impossible to break the constant flurry of criticisms and patterns that plague your mind. You're holding yourself back as a result, and you know it. You can't open up.
