Okay.....I'm doing this as a favor for someone.  They asked me to analyze the meaning of the lyrics in Pete Yorn's "Strange Condition."  

My interpretation is it's about a guy who feels hopelessly bound by his emotions and is begging for release.  He needs the girl to tell him how she feels so he can tell her how he feels.  

The person asking me to do this was not satisfied with my take on it and asked me to ask for help here.  Please help.  If anyone can figure it out, I know it will be you all!!!!!

A link to the lyrics is http://www.lyricsondemand.com/p/peteyornlyrics/strangeconditionlyrics.html  .

After careful consideration, Ratleader thinks they're saying:

"We're going to pump this song full of tough sounding catch-phrases, so you'll buy it even though they make it so confusing and gramatically scrambled that it doesn't have a coherent meaning."
