We're wondering what you're thinking, Arthur Nix. 'Cause ever since you rode your bike into that car, and were quickly whisked away by ambulance, you've been so pensive and quiet. Did your arm heal faster than your heart did, Arthur?

Oh, if we had the power to trap anything that could hurt a human being inside a jar we'd send it far from Earth and watch it explode in the sun to the cheers of everyone. But, alas, that can't be done.

So, Arthur Nix, we came to fix your bicycle. Heavy things sure can come outa nowhere. But when it's finished, we could take it for a ride. You might need it to outrun what's on your mind.

That cast you've got on your arm's full of names but when the doctors take it off you'll sure be glad. And in camp you'll play Four-Square everyday. Just remember to remember it can still be just as fun as yesterday.

Heavy things can come out of nowhere - out of thin air - sometimes.

    General Commenti think this song is more about comitting suicide:
    "did your arm heal faster than your heart did" meaning that though the wounds fade, the memories don't, or what drove them to it didn't or what-not...also:
    "you might need it to outrun what's on your mind," which is saying that he needs to get away from what caused, or aided, in its happenings...
    maybe i'm completely off, but, alas, i'm an ass.

    General CommentWhen I saw them live Ben said he wrote this for his friend Arthur to cheer him up.

    General CommentI think I saw the same show as Splitends, and Ben did say that he wrote it for his friend, and I think that Arthur may have actually gotten in a bicyle accident, and Ben was trying to say that he will always have the memory, but the scars will always be there, but he has to face that.. I don't know, but I like the song!

    General CommentI have seen the band only twice, but I vaguely remember hearing that it was in fact a song written to cheer up a friend.
