"Superstitions In Travel" as written by and Jonathan Michael Palumbo Mobley....
we're keeping up the fiction and breaking all the mirrors. we're bringing our own troubles by neglecting the cracks we walk on. the daystar is burning in this black cofin we move in. we tried to make it work out hundreds of miles apart. hyou are the luckiest symbol i've ever found and i'm a world away. we are the final students in the dying art of lost astrology. you are the brightest single shining star i saw from miles away. it's superstitious but i keep on wishing on all the falling stars on hold for me. you keep on pulling and causing tension but you're the magnet. if we never find the way home i'd be more than lost without you and to all the skeptic onlookers we should have never made it this far.

    General CommentI think this song is abut how it's a troubled, either friendship or relationship, that isn't working. He talks about how there is still a hint of light even though they are getting closer and closer to "this black coffin" (the death of 'them'). Then he starts to say how it's the other person who is causing all this trouble, but no matter what, he would "be more than lost" without them. And that no matter what he will keep on wishing for things to get better, even though they don't seem to be. That's just me though. Great song, I am in love with it.

    General CommentIt's about realizing that a long-distance relationship isn't working out, even though it's seemed fine for so long.

    General CommentYeah, but still kind of happy. It's not like anybody got hurt...they just kind of drifted away from each other. A slow kind of a growing apart thing.

    And Elliott have the best bass lines since The Pixies.

    General CommentDamn...I was wrong. It is sad. Incredibly depressing when you really think about it. They were perfect for each other, madly in love, but that love has just faded away. Kind of makes me want to die...slowly building apathy is worse than any sort of active problem which might have pushed them apart.

    General Commentthis is a great song that i liked originally for the sound, then the lyrics just seemed so futiley hopeful, like the kind of faith you keep when you don.t want to let go and you just convince yourself it.s right. it.s tragic, really, but applies in all ways. great song.
