"Nonsense" as written by and Marcus Erik/karlsson Holmberg....
Do do do do do do do doo, ba da ba babaa
It doesn't matter now, what the song's about
Do do do do do doo, ba da ba ba ba baaa
It doesn't matter now, what the song's about

I really don't want to write another I'm a dick song again
It doesn't matter now, what the song's about
My mouth is my own bear trap I keep setting and stepping in
It doesn't matter now, what the song's about

no matter what I did, no matter what I said
It doesn't matter now, we've got it figured out
We could continue on, with such nonsense to fill the days
..and we won't speak, of ugly things
But when these lyrics come out you'll come scream at me
One foots in your mouth the other foots in your grave
So sing your heart out loud (x3)

do do do do do do do doo, ba da ba da da daaaa
Sing your heart out loud

I'm a dick, there, I said it, sing your heart out loud

    General Commentthis song sounds like its about how he gets fed up of writing about the same things over and over again but its just what comes out when he writes.
    "my mouth is my own bear trap I keep setting and stepping in" it could also be sang to his lady friend saying how in their relationship he could act liek he has no problems or anything and that everything is fine, but when she hears his latest songs they will be about whats wrong, i got this from the lines "we could continue on, with such nonsense to fill the days
    ..and we wont speak, of ugly things
    but when these lyrics come out you'll come scream at me"
    orrrr it could be about playing the fans what they want to hear, he doesnt really want to keep writing the same songs over and over "i really don't want to write another I'm a dick song again" but the crowd love it "but when these lyrics come out you'll come scream at me"

    i dunno i think its the second one, good song anytway i especially like the cello led part of "no matter what i said, no matter what i did"

    General CommentI think this song is just a "dickish" way of saying he can't communicate in his own way.
    "we could continue on, with such nonsense to fill the days
    ..and we wont speak, of ugly things"
    I think this is just referring to the bullshitting people give eachother all day. Sometimes it's seems wrong to say what you mean, because nobody else is.
    And how honesty and emotion are so looked down upon.
    This is just what it means to me...

    General CommentI decided this is my favourite song out of all of Cursive's discography. In the beginning just listen to the instruments and the mess of sound they make.

    I think this song is about how no matter what he sings about, we already know he's a dick. It's almost like we'll just translate his nonsense into whatever we've predecided about him. But at the same time he thinks he is a dick cuz that's how his songs have went before and that's what we expect of him, therefore he steps into the trap of his old lyrics and preconceptions.

    That's my take on it anyway... maybe that's because I'm in a similar situation where people are judging me even though they don't have any real basis for it other than they're own biased opinions.

    PS. the "do do do do do do do doo, ba da ba babaa" is him showing that he can even sing real nonsense and it still translates to ImaDick.
