"Mistake" as written by and Ian Thornley....
As I sift and drift through bullshit
That plagues from day to day
Would you ever really notice
That I've gone away

I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
I'm over the safety
Over the phone calls
Over the rage
What a mistake

When you've lost the stones to throw
They're the ones I found to make a fire
And all the lonely souls that say so, get fired

And I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
(Just can't seem to get out of the way)
Over the safety
Over the phone calls
Over the rage
What a mistake

What a mistake
What a mistake
What a mistake
What a mistake

And I've never been lost
I've never been found
And it makes no difference
If I'm around
(Just can't seem to get out of the way)
There's never been words
There's never been actions
There's never been promises that I've never kept
(Just can't seem to get out of the way)

I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
(Just can't seem to get out of this)

Pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling, Wow!
What a mistake

Mistake

As I sift and drift through bullshit
That plagues from day to day
Would you ever really notice
I'm gone away?

    General Commentthis is just a great song... that riff is killer at the beginning.

    as to what i means, i relate... bascially he messed something up with a girl by overthinking and worried... hence 'over the rage'. he realizes he was angry over nothing.

    General CommentI believe this song is about how the past Relationship was a Mistake. How he's finally over all of it, All the hurt feelings, the anger, the happiness, and just trying to move forward.
