(I push my fingers into my eyes...)
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache...
But it's made of all the things I have to take...
Jesus, it never ends, it works it's way inside...
If the pain goes on...
Aaaaaaaah!

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I've waited as my time's elapsed
Now, all I do is live with so much fate
I've wished for this, I've bitched at that
I've left behind this little fact:
You cannot kill what you did not create
I've gotta say what I've gotta say
And then I swear I'll go away
But I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise
I guess I'll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You're left with me 'cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
If the pain goes on,
I'm not gonna make it!

Put me back together or
Separate the skin from bone
Leave me all the pieces, then you can leave me alone
Tell me the reality is better than the dream
But I found out the hard way,
Nothing is what it seems!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it's way inside
If the pain goes on,
I'm not gonna make it!

All I've got... all I've got is insane...
All I've got... all I've got is insane...
All I've got... all I've got is insane!
All I've got... all I've got is insane!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it's way inside
If the pain goes on,
I'm not gonna make it!

All I've got... all I've got is insane...
All I've got... all I've got is insane...
All I've got... all I've got is insane!
All I've got... all I've got is insane!

    Gosh, what is wrong with you people?
    If you write 'I love this song' or something like that you get thumps up, but if you write what this song could be about and some weird fag does not agree with that, you get thumps down!?
    If you didn't get that this whole thing is about writing your MEANING to a song, then at least accept other peoples opinions ... and who says what the right meaning of a song is anyway? The ones who wrote them? They just say what they thought the song COULD be about, you are still allowed to interpret the song the way you want to ...

    Taylor explained the story behind the album's first single, "Duality," which features the repeated line "I push my fingers into my eyes." "Did you ever get that headache that is just not going to go away, and you end up sticking your thumb and middle finger so far into your eyes, just to stop the pain?" he explained. "It usually has to do with making a choice. You get to that point in everyday life when you have to make a decision that you may not want to, but you're kind of pushed into that position.

    " 'Duality' is about standing at the crossroads of your life, looking down both paths, and going, 'Now what am I going to do?' "
