A Perfect Circle


Wanted to share these with you guys, one of my most favourite songs - its evokative and holds for me an entire experience that will never be repeated - the words say it all.

Threw you the obvious and you flew
with it on your back, a name in your recollection,
thrown down among a million same.
difficult not to feel a little bit disappointed
and passed over
when i've looked right through
to see you naked and oblivious
and
you don't see me.but i threw you the obvious
just to see if there's more behind the eyes
of a fallen angel,
the eyes of a tragedy.
here i am expecting just a little bit
too much from the wounded.
but i see through it all
and see you.
so i threw you the obvious
to see what occurs behind the eyes of a fallen angel,
eyes of a tragedy.
oh well. apparently nothing.
you don't see me.
you don't see me at all.

Would it be too risky to suggest it's probably a chick song?

Oh come on, I don't get to play the heartless brute often!

Bobo: Oh I think you do. Especially with me - or its a trend I have noticed. This song is very meaningful to me. I dont have to explain it :o) plus Perfect Circle are a progressive rock band I believe, lead singer also works with a band called Tool. Not really Sugar Babes or Girls Aloud

I don't think I've actually heard A Perfect Circle, though as you know I'm familiar with Tool.

For me though I'd have to hear the song to appreciate the lyrics more: as with poetry, I'm really rubbish with reading lyrics and gaining something from them on their own, don't know why. Will have to rectify this state of affairs :)

Perfect Circle are great - a bit more mainstream and marketable than Tool but good none the less. Good lyrics stand alone as poetry. But go listen to the song - its on youtube, if I could work out how to embed the code I would.
