"Reasons Why" as written by Marquis Birch, Robbi Ellington, Ric Harris and Paget King....
Sweet talk will work til he finds out
How bad it rots out your teeth
Until he takes a bite of your cake
All plastic and fake, and spoiled underneath

Stick figure: "Man With No Backbone"
Your brand new favorite toy
You'll teach but he'll never learn
You scream, he squirms
And that brings you joy untold

Never grows old
Never gives out
Never goes by
Joy, you'll never hold
Don't even try
Cause it'll change with the seasons
And you'll be the reason why

Your halo is held on with duct tape
From taxed luck and gravity
Your wings are tattered to match
You're easy to catch
But harder to keep like joy

(chorus)
You say everything that he wants to hear
Shiny, empty, vapid and insincere
You take every liberty you can see
Til he's only left with the urge to flee
And I slip right through your grip and run just like joy

    General Commenti'm not really sure what this is about.. but it sounds like it has something to do with staying happy...
    "Joy, you'll never hold
    Don't even try
    Cause it'll change with the seasons
    And you'll be the reason why .."
    they keep making references to joy throughout the whole song.. ah well who knows.. i like this song though, its pretty good.

    General CommentI think hes talking about some girl that falls in and out of love easily and all in all is very 'easy'. He says "Your halo is held on with duct tape
    From taxed luck and gravity
    Your wings are tattered to match
    You're easy to catch
    But harder to keep like joy" It is just saying that she tries all these different people and acts to find joy but she never will when shes like that. She can never stay with one person. Just my take on it.
