Walkin’ in a straight line

As we all may or may not know, I’ve been sick! The lyrics to Straight Line by Silverchair go somethin’ like this …

Breathing from a hole in my lung :: (sometimes it’s hard to breathe)
I had no one :: (feeling alone)
But faces in front of me :: (no one understood)
Racing through the void in my head
To find traces of a good luck academy :: (people don’t understand it, say good luck and send you on your way)

Sparks ignite and trade them for thought :: (in the video he gestures to where it hurts on me)
About no one
And nothing in particular
Washed the sickened socket and drove :: (trying to heal the disease beneath my eye)
Resent nothing :: (but I’m not bitter, it can be tough and sometimes I cry but …)
There’s good will inside of me :: (… overall I feel positive inside and, seriously, full of love and good will)

Wake me up lower the fever :: (in the morning, all the medication I take)
Walking in a straight line :: (move forwards on my path, this is really positive, a straight line, focused)
Set me on fire in the evening :: (later in the day the pain can get excruciating)
Everything will be fine :: (but I know it will all be ok)
Waking up strong in the morning :: (I get up knowing everything’s ok)
Walking in a straight line :: (and continue on, remembering to clear and focus)
Lately I’m a desperate believer :: (at times I’m desperate but I believe)
But walking in a straight line

Something I will never forget :: (this is such a huge transition and learning road for me)
I felt desperate
And stuck to the marrow :: (don’t know which way to turn with this)
Invisible to everyone else :: (people don’t know that I’m feeling pain half the time when I’m feeling it!)
I’m a sex change :: (this is the ONE line that doesn’t fit me in the whole song … so I’m sayin’ it means I’m in transition, going to be a brand new person after all of this)
And a damsel with no heroine :: (I can’t be on the pain medication right now)

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I’m a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line

I don’t need no time to say
There’s no changing yesterday
If we keep talking and :: (if I continue to express what’s going on for me)
I keep walking in straight lines :: (and I keep clearing, moving forwards)

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I’m a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line
