Talkin' S--t About a Pretty Sunset

Album: This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About (1996)
  • Oh noose tied myself in, tied myself too tight
    Looking kind of anxious in your cross armed stance
    Like a bad tempered prom queen at a homecoming dance
    And I claim I'm not excited with my life any more
    So I blame this town, this job, these friends
    The truth is it's myself
    And I'm trying to understand myself
    And pinpoint where I am
    By the time I get things figured out
    I?ve change the whole damn plan
    Oh noose tied myself in, tied myself too tight
    Talking shit about a pretty sunset
    Blanketing opinions that I'll probably reget soon
    I've changed my mind so much I cant even trust it
    My mind changed me so much I cant even trust myself

  • Brandee from Salem, NhSean... you're half right at least haha. It's about the mind of someone with bipolar (at least I think so). Who ever the person is representing is in a depression... he knows it will all change when he comes out of it or switches to manic. That's why he says, "Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon. Change my mind so much I can't even trust it. My mind change me so much I can't even trust myself" I'm bipolar.... I promise it's true haha. When you're depressed you see things like he's explaining.. yet he knows he's really a "pretty sunset" and he's just going through his depressive side. Bipolar people go from feeling something strongly... then feeling the opposite just as strongly later. Oh yeah... it's fun haha.
  • Jess from Kannapolis, NcI swear I can see every one of their songs in myself. "I've changed my mind so much I cant even trust it. My mind changed me so much I cant even trust myself" - that is SO me.
