I Could Be the President

Postby crbrazil » Tue Oct 12, 2010 1:38 am

was i born to sink into this couch
and watch my whole world
bleed its purpose out?
around the insects
follow patterns to their deaths
while i waste my precious breath
on another second guess

i'm afraid
i'm afraid of sleeping
i'm afraid
i'm afraid of sleeping in
i feel so dead to the world
just tell me where do i begin
cause
i'm afraid
i'm afraid of breathing in

these nightmares are so weird
it's like i'm drowning at the bottom of a bottle of beer
that my father sips between the humorous quips
of the late night comedy news shows he frequents

and i wake up
with the devil in my sheets
i took to her shoulders
asking was it good for me

i'm afraid
i'm afraid of sleeping
i'm afraid
i'm afraid of sleeping in
i feel so dead to the world
just tell me where do i begin
cause
i'm afraid
i'm afraid of breathing in

if only i were present then
i could be the president!
if only i were present then
i could be the president!
yeah!

i'm afraid
i'm afraid of sleeping
i'm afraid
i'm afraid of sleeping in
i feel so dead to the world
just tell me where do i begin
cause
i'm afraid
i'm afraid of breathing in
was i born to sink into this couch

most people haven't heard this and i recommend that you do asap. it's one of my favorites. i think it's like a wake up call song but it's one that can be taken a lot of ways line to line. know what i'm sayin??

I absolutely love this song; probably on my top three of SA songs. I'd say it's geared towards being afraid of the world/life passing you by ('afraid of sleeping in'). And he constantly sees people wasting away (the part with the couch/watching tv). But then, about how difficult it is to actually live when the world is so shitty and life brings ya down ('I feel so dead to the world just tell me where do I begin').

ANNDD then 'If only I were present then, I could be the president!' is my FAVORITE. I interpret it as feeling like you're not really there but if you WERE feeling alive well... you could do amazing things.

BUT yeah this is all just my two-cents ya'll should listen to this song it's awesome :).
