Getting dressed for a date Put on blue aftershave Wore a kilt like a Celt Hid the way that I felt Combat boots, falling leaves West village Halloween To a Bollywood song Taking shots 'til we're gone And we're gone in the autumn Persona non grata I'm the last of the best I'm your thoughts In the swamp
There's a playground of children In the shadows of buildings There's a line out the church Where your homelessness works Where your stain glass and crimson Meets Ezekiel's visions Saw a valley of bones Where no man shall be saved
And now you You come to me Asking that And now you You come to me And you're asking that Oh how can we reconcile?
Left your innocence there In Tienanmen square You were filled with despair Underfed and depressed Vacant lot Where a prison stood God knows you never would Lie to yourself But you do every time Made a life of deception And passive aggression I'm gonna scream when I sing I'm gonna die in the rain Turn me on you're a knock out Climb up on my cloud Do your worst to me now Before I change my mind
And now you You want to be true To me once again And you want me to be true To you, once again Oh yeah, you You want to be true To me, once again And you want me to be true To you once again

Pyffer from WiscoI'm just a guy that lives in his late mother's house next to the church/homeless shelter after coming home from the military. Willing to jump into a relationship with a seemingly fair woman, I found she had extremely detrimental effects on my mental health due to her abandonment issues that she vehemently denied. She claimed that I was insane and bipolar for feeling the way I did when she blew up on me(until I finally called it off).. then she disclosed her traumatic childhood experiences to me so that I would stay. Guilt for leaving, promising things would change, suicidal threats, anything.. I can't leave. 'Tomorrow will be the day', I say to myself....every single day. When I forgive everything in the past it backfires on me and I'm blamed for how I handled our previous situations. But then I'm told I'm the most patient and kind person she's ever met and she can't imagine her life without me. Yet it's abusive for me and I cant just leave. So take my story and try to understand how I interpret this song. It's a sort of solace to me to hear someone so successful convey these lyrics. - Cody

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
