Sure Suzy, I'll help you.... and I've found some lyrics too...

I feel strange, can you help me?
I've been around the world too fast
you're the only one I noticed
of all the people I've been past
I will always listen to you
losing battles in your mind
you don't have to tell me nothing
I know that you're on my side

Cant you help me
can you help me
feel a little less strange?

I feel strange, can you help me
I'm a little lost today
you're the only face i think of
when i cannot find my way
I could tell you what goes crossing
always crossing through my mind
I don't need to tell you nothing,
i know that you're on my side

but you help me
yeah you help me
You help me,
feel a little less strange

I feel strange, can you help me?
I've Been around the world too fast
you're the only one I noticed
of all the people I've been past
you will always listen to me
losing battles in my mind
'you don't have to tell me nothing
I know that you're on my side

but you help me
oh yeah you help me
oh well you help me,
I feel a little less strange
Oh but but you help me
yeah you help me
oh you help me,
feel a little less strange

so Here I go, its like a brainstorm in text:

how do you make someone feel less strange anyways?
by relating to them?
by being a little strange yourself?
or by being a rock that keeps them grounded?
hmmm
someone that understands you without you having to say anything.
feeling lost and confused in a whirlwind with only one face on your mind.
wanting something or someone?
feeling alone in a crowd and wanting one person that can make it all feel better?
desperation and longing.
I think the song is about love... some kind of love. a lot of dead weather songs are somewhere between the heart and the belt, (IMO) but this feels all heart.
starts off with can you help me and by the end is yeah you help me...



The song comes with this one:
The moon is always full for us
The road is always clear
That's not what you want to hear
One is born so one can die
You must wait a real long time
That's more than you can bear
And the days will come and go
And the band will march along
Till the day you cast a shadow
that looks nothing like your own
Rolling in on a burning tire
You're going to set my house on fire
Just to show me you were there
Well I was raised up like a snake
You were raised to leave me bait
I always, always take
And the days will come and go
And the band will march along
Till the day you cast a shadow
that looks nothing like your own
The moon is always full for us
The road is always clear
That's not what you want to hear
That's not what you want to hear

waiting for something... not happy with whats happening... changing...
the moon is always full the road is always clear... things are going easily in this direction but someone doesnt necessarily like that?
one is born so one can die. is that you are born to die, and wait a long time in between... or something is born so something else can die? in that case, what are they waiting for, for more time than they can bear?
raised up like a snake.. is that like the snake in the snake charmers basket? or the snake raised up ready to attack? orrr something else?
taking the bait seems closer to the first one.
and someone mentioned gasoline was similar to rolling in on a burning tire... well, they are both flamable! Gasoline is closer to the belt though...
hmm Gasoline... love/lust/being set on fire/consumed...
to be afraid is a luxury... one person is afraid of it, the other person is too far gone to be afraid? or one person is accusing the other of being afraid?
don't cool your engines for me, i dont want a sweetheart, i want a machine... trying to convince the other person it is okay?


thats all I have for now, somone else go and maybe I can clear up all my chaotic ideas later.

I love this song... It is absolutely amazing! It's great hearing Dean on Guitar again! I love his style! It's so interesting! The guitar riff gets in my head and stays there all day! And I love the way it ends...

This song needs an official release other than inside the triple decker. It is seriously one of the best, if not the best, song that TDW have made.

I've done my complaining about this song not being (legally) available so I'm not gonna go there again, but a great big yes to this part.

And do we know that it's Dean playing that guitar? Other folks I've spoken with think that it's Jack.

*raises hand*
Just heard this song now... it's awesome! I don't know who's playing guitar, but whoever it is, the guitar work is phenomenal. This is definitely a top 3 DW song for me.

As a drummer who has been following Jack and his style, the groove in the drums definately feels like its jack playing. But I really have no idea

this song makes me think of my girlfriend and how she is my support and how she knows so much about me that she can always read how I'm feeling
