someone called your shot
just from the other side
the self made rival you are
i thought i caught you breathing
it was just the sound of me laughing
modern day eves locked arm in arm with cosmo queens
turning heads
then their backs
trying to find the polarized version of their obsession
this is how to escape the horizon, curled up and frozen still
its the tilt of the hour glass
and we're slowly thinking, waiting, and waking

    General Commentit seems to me that this song is about a friend turning their back on him for a stupid reason, possibly accusing him of something wrong, and he doesn't care because its not worth it. Maybe not, but that seems to be the motif in my life.

    General Commentthe only part of this song i could render is:

    i thought i caught you breathing. it was just the sound of me laughing.

    sounds to me like murder. standing over someone's dead body, not nowing if they're dead. then laughing once you realise they are.

    regardless, this is a fuckin uber song.

    General Commentthis is an amazing song. does sound like murder to me - i thought i caught you breathing. it was just the sound of me laughing.

    probably referring to murdering someone, not sure whether or not they're dead. then laughing once you realise they are. amazing.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the JFK shooting for some reason. It could be better..

    "someone called your shot
    just from the other side"

    Wasn't someone suppose to shot from the grassy knoll?

    "i thought i caught you breathing
    it was just the sound of me laughing"

    Someone shot the guy that shot JFK.




    "trying to find the polarized version of their obsession"

    People get obsessed over it and try to find a picture of the other shooter.

    General Commentits about teenagers and wasting their lives on trying to look like and be like the people they see in magazines (trying to find the polarized version of their obsession) to where the point where they make themselves sick and sometimes die from things like balemia and shit like that and a more sensible person sees this and laughs are their stupid obsession (i thought i caught you breathing it was just the sound of me laughing)

    modern day eves locked arm in arm with cosmo queens
    turning heads
    then their backs
    ^they refer to Eve as in the bible who betrayed god and her beliefs and teenage girls do that and turn their backs on their beliefs to be more like the "cosmo queens"

    someone called your shot
    just from the other side
    the self made rival you are
    ^talking from some one looking at these people at these people killing themselves and destroying themselves

    this is how to escape the horizon, curled up and frozen still
    its the tilt of the hour glass
    and we're slowly thinking, waiting, and waking
    ^slowly people like this begain to realize life is short and they realize the meaningness of things such as looking as beautiful as models in magazines and they "wake" to find their old beliefs again

    not sure if thats right but thats just how i see it
