Express Yourself

From the album Dissect it Yourself, released April 2003

I wrote the music first at 7:45pm, on 20Mar. Then the next morning I continued by recording it, and writing the lyrics. I spent the most time on this song (And it still isn't as good as it could have been.) The main theme of the song is that you must express yourself clearly in order to make sure that people understand you.


One person when talking to
Another uses certain words
That is how the process of
Communication works.
And when one perceives the
Other different from the first
The thought and meaning intended
By the speaker will probably burst.
Or at least it will be deranged
The intended communication has changed.

So when you're speaking, be aware
Of blank looks and evil stares
Make sure you express yourself clearly
Avoid miscommunication early.
