One More Suicide

Album: Marcy Playground (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the story of a guy holding a letter from "her" and "falling" into a river, then later his mother holding a letter from "him" and falling into crying. The lyrics "Pity no one was there, no angels in the air" are where the catch comes in - was it suicide, or wasn't it? It could be about no one understanding what you really feel like until something bad happens or people who don't care about you but pretend that they do. >>
