Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

here's the best i've got:

hey

people, they talk a lot about it
but they don't have a clue what it means, it's true
i am one of those jealous little guys who will try to beat you all day
but people, i'm not that way

i'm not that--
people, think you can have it all
and people find other people who have what they don't
i am one of those egomaniacs who know just what to say
but people, i'm not that way

i'm not that--

hey

(muffled speech... "downtown")

Ooooh hoooo-aaaaah....

he who tries to break the point
misses the point every time
and every time i hit the nail on the head
it's my heart that bleeds ice

i am one of those cold hearted guys
who say love is a weakness, hey
but people, i'm not that way

hey let's get nervous
there's a button on my shoulder
and i'm pushin it over and over
hey gang what's your name?
the people i'm not

hey let's play gin
okay
i'll claim to love you if you play
but i'll hit you if you win, 'cause it's my game
who the hell are you anyway?
well,
the people i'm not

okay who's ... hit? it's your turn
there's a button on my shoulder
and i'm pushin it over and over

quit makin me waste my time
huh, yeah
the people i'm not

'kay let's get nervous
you get nervous
i'll grow to love you if you play
but i'll hit you if you win, it's my game
it's my game

......
the people i'm not
okay let's play gin again
there's a button on my shoulder
and i pushed it over and over
over
the people i'm not

okay, whos... it's cool... your turn
but if you win it's my game, my game
the people i'm not

let's get nervous

there's a button on my shoulder
and i'm pushing it over and over
are you listening?
yeah no, are you?
the people i'm not


if anyone out there can fill in the holes or make some corrections, that'd be dandy

awesome, thanks.
i love trying to decipher the less audible parts. he's a pretty good lyricist, and understanding the words makes his songs even better.

This was one of the first songs I have ever listened to and didn't feel like I had to understand it. It just made sense, it was almost as if I had heard the words before or something. It was eerie and emotional. Especially the part about every time I hit the nail on the head, it's my heart, that beats ice. I have literally felt that exact way. I don't want to be right, I'm just sadly proven correct. There's no joy in it, just ice. And a lot of the egotistical things he pokes at in this song are things I've struggled with a lot. Who the hell are you anyway? The people I'm not.

Can we turn this thread into a discussion of egotism? I'd love to discuss this issue.
