"Cats In Heat" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
Pulled from the liquor cabinet
Choose your mood and then start to wreak havoc
With your exaggerated sadness
The sadness that ensues
This is when I start to lose

Interrupted by flickering candles
The darkness that softened the angles
Though I am the reason
I am the reason

That I'm filling empty spaces
Where you left your mark
Take two steps back from all of this
Remember what you started with
It was nothing at all

Back in Queens
Where the stifling heat overpowers the air conditioning
You can keep on crawling away
But you're never gonna escape
No, not today

I'm filling in the empty spaces
Where you left your mark
In the soothing peace of car alarms and cats in heat
I can hear you breathe

Ba-ba-da-da-da
Keep on telling me that time is no enemy
A worthless struggle to step back
And reconceive

    General CommentThis is definately one of my favorites. (along with petals and snow day)

    Well to me that directly related to my own experience..of someone who had always had commitment problems or just problems in general. Someone who had always wanted to be with me for years but when the oppurtunity came up he didn't really bother trying to change to make things work and eventually things ended because he ran away from his problems instead of trying to fix them.

    (someone not realizing the extent of what they had and taking it for granted.)

    You can keep on crawling away

    (to me: Someone who instead of trying to fix things or themselves keep on "crawling away" from them instead to try to "escape" but...as it says "but you're never going to escape")

    So basically I think it's somewhat about someone in a way taking a relationship for granted? and soon screwing it up with repeated mistakes..and realizing they should change but not.

    General CommentThis is one of the most amazing, perfect, songs I have heard in a long time. When I first found The Honorary Title, I was blown away, Jarrod has such strong vocals that basically give me chills every time I listen, and his lyrics are pure genius. And 'Cats In Heat' to me, feels like someone knows that their relationship just isn't working, but is addicted to the person, and doesn't want it to end. That if he hopes hard enough, things will be alright.

    General CommentI think it is about relationship between two people that didnt work out. He knows he was the problem and the reason why it didnt work " Though I am the reason
    I am the reason
    That I’m filling the empty spaces
    Where you left your mark"
    but he couldnt/or didnt try to fix it so now he is left alone trying to escape the pain by drowning the void the person left in him with alcohol "Pulled from the liquor cabinet
    Choose your mood and then start to wreck havoc"

    I love this song!
