Genius Next Door

Lyrics

Some said the local lake had been enchanted
Others said it must have been the weather
The neighbors were trying to keep it quiet
But I swear that I could hear the laughter

I love this song the melody is so deep
Very intense melody!
A lil creepy tune..... And the words are very interesting. I wonder what it means..... Still got me in a sad mood, don't you love how songs can change your mood;)
*one-sided
Just because doesn't believe in God, doesn't mean they have nothing to believe in. I'm not trying to offend you, but I am saying that your viewpoint is much too one-sides

This song is creepy but I get the message. Someone went swimming after the drank. And drown. The water thick
@Jazzy D actually it kinda doesnt so get over you and your mega religious self okay? Not everybody is miserable because God isnt their "saviour"
What is an orgasm?

Beautiful
Whoever stupid person said I'm an atheist; sucks to have nothing to believe in doesn't it? :P love this song it's amazing. I love Regina Spektor ever since she sang the call in Narnia prince caspian! 8<3+
I think the secret was that he went swimming at night, when no one knew about it and he would go swimming in the thick water
Beautiful.
This song is so beautiful and sad :'(
I don't even fully understand it. I don't think we were meant to. I think Regina wrote it for herself, not us. I cried, nevertheless . Isn't that something? I didn't even understand it, yet here I am, bawling. She's truly genius. Pondering... .
This is a beautiful and enchanting song that has led me to thinking.
I can't even begin to explain how this song makes me feel. fuselage.ang e l said it best I think... It haunts me.
i love this but i cried
zoom.spitfir e
This song and man of a thousand faces sound very similar
Maybe they thought he was a fool and laughed at his stupidity, but though it would be disgraceful to let anybody know...? Just a guess here...
I think his drowning was an accident. Earlier the lyrics kinda insiuated that the swimming in a lake thing was a secret he had been countiously. I think he went for a swim, was high, and was taken by the thick water that others would avoid. that's why he was foolish- he took a risk, and went somewhere that was considered unsafe. does anyone understand why the neighbors were trying to keep it quiet and laughing?

I might be wrong, this is just what i think it says.
Wow... I've never heard this song before, but I love it. Thanks, Pandora. :>

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS SONG RIGHT NOW <3
I think he wasn't trying to die, and had just decided to go into the "porridge" for obvious reasons, and he was also depressed, and then he died, and yeah.
It's either about a guy who determines to get a gasm by nearly drowning ("the antidote is orgasm"- it will cause him to come back and live after all) or commits suicide. but it's hard to say why he'd leave his clothes unless he was off to die... or high...
What the heck is it about?
It's pretty but weird.
Someone with the name Juliaspaper bags posted this on another website: DROWNING
"dreaming that the antidote is orgasm" - many believe that when a person drowns, they experience a euphoric sensation at the moment of death, comparable to an intense orgasm.

I believe maybe the lake had a reputation- the teenagers would go there to party, and dare eachother to hold their breath a long time underwater, hoping to achieve the fabled orgasm while still surviving to tell about it. Instead, many drow
I don't know what is about either, but it has an enchanting feeling, doesn't it.
The only thing I can think of is that the 'genius next door' drowned himself, but I don't think that's what it is.
I love the way this sounds, but does anyone know what it's about?

This song haunts me.
