Mewithoutyou (Me Without You) A Glass Can Only Spill What It Contains Lyrics

Last updated: 02/17/2011 10:00:00 AM

a cat came drifting onto my porch from the outside cold
and with eyes closed, drinking warm milk from my bowl,

"nobody hears me!(nobody hears me)
as I crept in so soft!
and nobody sees me!(nobody sees me)
as I watched six steps off."

like the peacocks wandering the walkways of the zoo
who have twice the autonomy the giraffes and the tigers do,

"no one can stop me,(no one can stop me)
no one clips my claws!
now everyone watch me(everyone watch me)
scale these outside walls!"
Oh you pious and profane,
Put away your praise and blame,
said "a glass can only spill what it contains"
To the perpetually plain and the incurably inane
a glass can only spill what it contains

what new mystery is this?
what blessed backwardness??
the Immeasurable One is held and does not resist!
struck by wicked words and foolish fists of senseless men
the Almighty One does not defend!

I was halfway listening to what she thinks she knows
We're like children dressing in our parents' clothes, saying:

"Nobody knows me,(nobody knows me)
no one knows my name,
No, nobody knows me,(nobody knows me)
nobody knows me..."
I half-heartedly explained
but gave up peacefully ashamed
as a glass can only spill what it contains
we went to Portugal and Spain
and in her mind the entire time it rained!
a glass can only spill what it contains

what new mystery is this? in overflowing emptiness
the Invisible is seen among the shadows and the mist,
before my doubting eyes the Infinite appears in time-
the Unquestionable is questioned but makes no reply!

what new mystery is this(x5)?!
"my Rabbi!"
my lips betray with a kiss

what new mystery is this?

@ Baby Believers: not at all. this song is about pride. how we put more value into who we are then what we should ought. we think we are something when we aren't. "nobody hears me, nobody sees me. nobody can stop me. nobody knows me." its how in our pride we pretend to be something we are not: "we're like children dressing in their parents clothes." our attitude is compared to that of the one who could think highly of Himself yet did not (php 2): "inmeasurable one is held and does not resist, struck by...but the Almighty does not defend, the invisible is seen, the Infinite appears, the unquestionable is questioned but makes no reply." as i said, about pride; hence the title, you can't spill out more than what is contained, don't think more of yourself than what's there.

I feel this song is about newcomers to Christ who want to win souls over but don't know enough of God's word. Perhaps even they want to win souls for the wrong reasons. The Immeasurable One
is Jesus leading up to His time on Calvary. So, there is a brief knowledge there but the subject can't quite bring himself to the task. "I half-heartedly explained, but gave up peacefully ashamed." I think this is a reasonably common issue for most who come to know Christ and know the Bible in their early years.
