The Dark Of The Matinee

Lyrics

You take your white finger
Slide the nail under the top and bottom buttons of my blazer
Relax the fraying wool, slacken ties
And I'm not to look at you in the shoe, but the eyes, find the eyes

You take your white finger
Slide the nail under the top and bottom buttons of my blazer
Relax the fraying wool, slacken ties
And I'm not to look at you in the shoe, but the eyes, find the eyes

He says it pretty clearly. It's definitely academic.

sounds like psychedelic to me, not academic.
Reminds me of freshman year high school.....
Does this song have a meaning?

Great song, and great video as well :D
It's definitely academic, watch the video.
I heard academic myself...
The incomprehens i b l e part should be psychadelic
through psychadelic factories
Hmm, refectories is harder to understand than academic.
its academic. incomprehens i b l e is just an excuse for lazyness in this instance.

i thought it was "psychadelic "

aggielink
So poetic.
This song freakin pwns. So awsome, catchy and it has a great rythm. I cant help but sing along to it every time i hear it.
it think the "incomprehen s i b l e " bit is actually "psychedelic "
jodykolley
he says ...no? And then one line it is "academic" i think. Yeah maybe that's why they put incomprehens i b l e lol
