"Autographs & Apologies" as written by and Joshua Allen Cain Justin Pierre Courtney....
Outline of a story-board with no idea head first in the shallow end I apologize if I do not care
Busy hands keep swimming they don't like swallowing to the abstract motor, "gotta make that motor hum gotta make it run." forward seems like forever when "ever" is hand over hand over hand the busy hands keeps swimming gotta make that motor "hum"get it over and done
So much for autographs so much for apologies so much for promises I never intended to keep how does it all add up? how does the story end? I can't let go I can't pretend
Very I'm so friendly very I'm so halloween so this is what I wanted gotta keep those channels clean and other sobering themes I'm drowning by numbers my halo is bent it's a fat fucking lie and so the abstract motor gives in it says, "at least I tried." at least I tried.

    General CommentI skipped over this song at first, but it's really grown on me. As for meaning, to me it's about trying and trying, but eventually giving up because it seems so fruitless. My favorite lines:

    How does it all add up? how does the story end?
    I can't let go, I can't pretend

    General Comment'autographs and apologies' is the mcs song which really gets me. i don't know why, but every time i listen to it it sends a chill down my spine. i'm not too sure about the specific meaning of the song, but it seems to be sombre reflection as well as a feeling of helplessness about his destiny. just my opinion though

    General Comment"and i apologize if i do not care."

    awesome song. not too sure what is about but the motor metaphor seems like a constant everyday struggle to make something of yourself but in the end you always seems to fail at something.
