Figure It Out Lyrics

Nothing here to see
Just a kid like me
Trying to cuss and see
Trying to figure it out

Nothing better to do
When I'm stuck on you
And still I'm here
Trying to figure it out

Getting hard to sleep
But it is in my dreams
But it's killing me
To try and figure it out

Nothing better to do
When I'm stuck on you
And still I'm here
Trying to figure it out I'll let it go 'cause I won't see you later
And I'm not allowed to talk it out
I said I'll come, I'll promise I won't show
But I see you trying to figure it out
I promise you, I'll take a bet on you
But you didn't know I planned it out
I said I'll go, yeah, I won't see you later
And I'm not allowed to figure it out

Nothing here to see
Just a kid like me
Trying to cuss and see
Trying to figure it out

Nothing better to do
When I'm stuck on you
And still I'm here
Trying to figure it out

I'll let it go 'cause I won't see you later
And I'm not allowed to talk it out
I said I'll come, I'll promise I won't show
But I see you trying to figure it out
I promise you, I'll take a bet on you
But you didn't know I planned it out
I said I'll go, yeah, I won't see you later
And I'm not allowed to figure it out

Thoughts & Meanings

I think the song/music video is a masterpiece in playing with what's hidden and what is shown. It points to the mysteries we're confronted with every day because we don't have the full picture. The same background posters reveal completely different messages and pictures depending on whether they are shot with a green tint or a red tint. I think this makes us examine whether or not we're getting the whole story in the media, whether we're consuming news or popular culture. The lyrics, like the background posters, alternate messages. Sometimes "I'm" trying to figure it out, and sometimes "you're" trying to figure it out; or, "I said I'd come, I promise I won't show." There is a constant, deliberate interplay of conflicted statements that shadow the truth. The video editing underscores that idea, revealing scenes and details out of sequence, removing and replacing the blood stains and weaponry at various times and purposefully ignoring the continuity issues that generally rule filmmaking. Ultimately, we'll figure out what's going on in our lives with or without the truth being revealed. Whether we're right or wrong, that's what we have to do.
