When you ere trained to walk upright, your first words were "I'm sorry." Trick her. Make her think you walk on water. Yeah, trick her! Splash water on your face to make tears. She's just a song in the making. They're all songs in the making. Sometimes we're friends until you forget how to talk. You get drunk, drunk, drunk. Sometimes you're just a slut on the floor crawling in circles, splashing your eyes with water again. Go write a song about that. I get to read how you broke her and hear your songs over and over. You are a lover, but lovers are hunters even when prey falls in their lap. You hunt them down, then cry when they get hurt. They adore you, and you devour them. "Oh no, I'm so sorry. I really am this time. Don't you know that I love you? I'll make it up to you. Please wait and let me tell you a little bit about myself. This is a game. You don't know it, but you're playing now. You lost the first time, but you think you want to play again. So, take a number like a client in an office lobby. Wait your turn; this game has two participants. Wait!"

    General Commenti'm not sure about this,
    but i kind of think that this is talking about how the narrator was a liar from the very start, where he learned to walk. He's taking control of everybody he encounters, and eventually someone catches on.

    I'm just guessing, and that's probably inacurate because i read it once and when my story got going i just went from there so i'm not sure if it even follows the song. Sorry, i tried!

    General Commentseems to me the narrator is describing a two-timing chick who he was schemed by. she's using love as a game with another person and by the end the narrator emulates her with a fake apology and mocks her with a real explanation of how her game works and if her ex wants to play again. i don't know but it's a great song.
