  • they're flailing

    i completely disagree with this lyric. any live recording i've ever heard or seen, gavin says our opinons are "flailing" not "failing." back me up people.

      Maybe...

      I am just curious, what would be the significance of "Flailing?"
      And when the water comes... I will overflow

        Opinions are flailing, they're constantly changing...


        Makes enough sense right there. When something is flailing, it's going back and forth uncontrollably.

          I was pretty darn sure it was flailing too.

            I was just reading the insert of my copy of Leitmotif and in the story, where many of the lyrics are directly derived from, it reads "my opinions are failing. they are constantly changing."
            Let me tell you about heartache
            and the loss of God
            Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
            Out here in the perimeter there are no stars,
            Out here we is stoned immaculate.

              Still sounds like flailing.

              Oh well.

                    Wow... . thank you for this thread.

                    I remember reading the lyrics on the internet a few years ago and being confused. "How could he possibly be saying failing?"...."HOW!!!!?!!?!"

                    Now I know I am not alone.

                      How about this? He sang it with a slight L just to make us question the line.
                      If there was no consequence, I could answer all the questions of the world.

                          Then again....that could have been just a typo. There's quite a few in the booklet.

                              yeah, i was gonna add that many of the words and lines are altered from the booklet to the actual lyrics. gavin took what drew had and made lyrics from that, but he was free to add his own touches. i have also always heard flailing.
