"Smile Lines" as written by Ben Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
Met my match today
Felt the blood rushing and mingling
A curious and enigmatic thing now
Spiders in my dreams
Synchronicity weaves like a web when
You were meant to be a meal

I want you so bad
I want you so bad
I understand why they say
High school never ends

Ill never act my age
But you can tell byu the lines in my smile
That I have been around for a while
So insecurities
Are about as useful as trying
To put the pin back in the grenade

I want you so bad
I want you so bad
I understand why they say
High school never ends

This isn't coincidence
There's no such thing
This isn't coincidence
There's no such thing
No such thing

    General CommentIt's about when you're in love you can act so ridiculous and childish no matter what your age is:

    "Never act my age
    You can tell by the lines in my smile
    That I have been around for a while"

    It's reminescent of high school days ("I understand why they say high school never ends") with the whole "i like you do you like me" bullshit.

    General CommentThis & "beware! criminal" are my two personal faves of ACLOTM. I think the song is just about how when he meets this girl she makes him act like he used to in high school.

    General Comment"Met my match today" is like there's this girl that's like a hard catch so to speak and, well, he wants her bad. The high school part is like frustration.

    General Comment"Synchronicity weaves like a web
    When you were meant to be a meal"

    *I love this because it shows how some people shouldn't play hard to get when they meet someone who loves them and means it. Synchronicity means roughly a series of events and how a series of events leads you to your true love and you should be a piece of cake to get because you should match so well, hence "you were meant to be a meal"

    Thats what I think...:)

    General Commenthe doesnt mean he met his match like his competetion, he means it like his partner. like you have to matching socks... so hes not talking about a girl being hard to get. his match like his soul mate. when he says "This isn't coincidence, There's no such thing" hes saying what its fate, not sheer chance. the high school reference is just how when youre young and fall in love, you really feel like you get butterflies in your stomach, but as you get older that feeling vanishes, but now hes feeling that feeling again even though hes a lot older.

    General Commenti think the highschool reference could mean that we never forget our highschool loves and crushes. The 'match' referred to could be that special someone from highschool herself, reunited or reintroduced into his life, since he couldnt get to know her in high school because of insecurities. And their meeting again was no coincidence either.

    General CommentThe drama never ends. We think we have grown up and past all of that high-school drama shit, but we never actually have.
