A Place For My Head Lyrics

I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night,
Shining with the light from the sun.
But the sun doesn't give the light to the moon assuming,
The moon's gonna owe it one.
It makes me think about the way you act for me, you do,
Favours...

    I think it's about people who expect you to do things for them because of who they are. I also picture a relationship where the woman is asking the man for all this but not willing to give anything. I also kinda relate it to a friendship I had where the girl alway expected me to just do it her way be who she wanted me to be etc. And it was a lot of hidden hate and anger and well heres my interpretation of the verses
    I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night,
    shining with the light from the sun.
    But the sun doesn't give the light to the moon assuming,
    the moon's gonna owe it one.

    The sun is giving the moon light but its not expecting the moon to now bow down at its feet. They work together.

    It makes me think about the way you act for me, you do,
    favours then rapidly
    just turn around then start asking me about,
    things that you want back from me.

    One person perhaps the girlfriend or the friend in the friendship does one thing like talking to them putting up with them and then they expect the other to do everything for them that they want because they have done this one favor.


    i'm sick of the tension,
    sick of the hunger,
    sick of you acting like I owe you this.
    Find another place to feed your greed,
    while I find a place to rest.


    the selfishness and greed or the expecting person creates a lot of tension in the relationship and the hunger refers to the greed wanting so much out of the man or friend. So hes saying go bother someone else im not going to be your slave anymore I need some rest because all of it has exhausted me.


    [chorus] I want to be in another place, I hate when you say you don't understand.
    (you'll see it's not meant to be) I want to be in the energy,
    not with the enemy,
    a place for my head.

    He doesn't want to be with the selfish greedy person and he realizes the unfairness and the tension is a sign they need to get away from eachother but the other person doesn't know what he means because they are to busy being greedy to see what they are doing.
    He wants to be with someone who works with him and lifts him up not someone who drags him down.


    maybe someday i'll be just like you and,
    step on people like you do,

    saying maybe one day he will become the greedy person making people do everything for him because he did one thing for them. He will take advantage of people


    and run away from the people I thought I knew.

    Then he will just walk out on all those who were there for him and wouldn't give

    I remember back then who you were,
    you used to be calm, used to be stong,
    used to be generous and you should've known,
    that, you'd wear out your welcome,

    he's remembering when he met her she gave to him and he gave to her there was no expecting eachother to do this and that. She used to be levelheaded not taking advantage of his kindness and do things herself.
    But after awhile she changed and he got sick of her and how she treated him



    and now you see,
    how quiet it is, all alone.


    so he leaves her and now shes alone.


    i'm so sick of the tension,
    sick of the hunger,
    sick of you acting like I owe you this.
    Find another place to feed your greed,
    while I find a place to rest. [x2]
    I want to be in another place, I hate when you say you don't understand.
    (you'll see it's not meant to be) I want to be in the energy,
    not with the enemy,
    a place for my head.

    You, try to take the best of me, go away!
    you, try to take the best of me, go away!
    you, try to take the best of me, go away!
    you, try to take the best of me, go away! [x2]

    shes trying to take advantage of his kindness and love.

    I want to be in another place, I hate when you say you don't understand.
    (you'll see it's not meant to be) I want to be in the energy,
    not with the enemy,
    a place for my head.

    (shut! up! why?!!)

    (shut!) I am so sick of the tension,
    sick of the hunger,
    sick of you acting like I owe you this.
    (up!)
    find another place to feed your greed,
    while I find a place to rest.

    (why?!!)
    i'm so sick of the tension,
    sick of the hunger,
    sick of you acting like I owe you this.
    (stay away from me!)
    find another place to feed your greed,
    while I find a place to rest.

    Okay so I can totally relate to this song but that's not the point. I was listening to Hybrid Theory today and this came on and I'm like: "Oh I haven't heard this one." So I googled it and, *groans*. Just google A place for my head lyrics. It showed the lyrics for points of authority... What the frick? Go home google you're drunk. That's all. I just find it stupidly funny when google is wrong.
