A PERFECT CIRCLE


The Outsider Lyrics

Help me if you can
It's just that this is not the way I'm wired, so could you please
Help me understand why
You've given in to all these reckless dark desires?

You're lying to yourself again, suicidal imbecile
Think about it, you put it on a faultline
What'll it take to get it through to you, precious?
I'm over this, why you wanna throw it away like this
Such a mess, I don't wanna watch you

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet at a time
What's your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

Medicated, drama queen
Picture perfect numb belligerence
Narcissistic, drama queen
Craving fame and all its decadence

Lying through your teeth again, suicidal imbecile
Think about it, put it on a fault line
What'll it take to get it through to you precious?
I'm over this, why you wanna throw it away like this?
Such a mess, I don't wanna watch you

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What's your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

They were right about you
They were right about you

Lying to my face again, suicidal imbecile
Think about it, you put on a fault line
What'll it take to get through to you precious?
I'm over this, why you wanna throw it away like this?
Such a mess, come to this, come to this

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What's your hurry, everyone will have his day to die
If you choose to pull the trigger
Should your drama prove sincere
Do it somewhere far away from here

It's about a self destructive woman; probably someone Maynard cared deeply for. Word of advice; don't fall in love with someone you're trying to save. I'm unfortunately quite aware of how it turns out

Actually in the second to last verse its, over this, over this. Watch live live jay leno performance and u can see it clear as day.

chris: You are right. Maynard James Keenan is the leadsinger of both Tool and A Perfect Circle as well as Puscifer which I highly recommend. He has also sung a lot of songs with other artists & bands.

I have an old friend who fits these lyrics perfectly. A drama queen. And a suicidal imbecile. Awesome song.

I love this song, but in third and sixth paragraph instead of:such a mess. Why would I wanna watch you? is: such a mess. I don't wanna watch you!

Over this. I'm pretty sure that is what he is yelling. Just watch the live performance when Maynard wears his ILOVEBRADWILKS shirt. His lips are clearly defined. At least I hope those are the lyrics!
