"My Girl's Ex-Boyfriend" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
Just listen to the politician
Wishing his position wasn't missing
Everything his heart would like to say
And a constant in the constitution
Is that there can't be one solution
It'd be so far from the truth
And we would hate it anyway
Opinions are immunity to being told
You're wrong paper, rock, and scissors
They all have their pros and cons

And all of us we will endure
Just like we always have
But you just can't be too sure
How long this will last

'Cause we control the chaos
In the back of our minds
Our problems seem so small
But they grow on us like gravity
But gravity makes us fall

    General CommentI think the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, but I just wanted to say that I think this is one of the sweetest songs I've ever heard.

    General Comment@jollyradar: The submitted lyrics were the official ones that Matt Thiessen posted at the RK forum via another member. Of course, not all official lyrics are correct.

    General Commentin the CD booklet, it says debris.

    I wonder if the song isn't really from another person's point of view, where Matt is the "someone I would hate to be." He describes the feelings that the unlucky guy would feel pretty in-depth. Not to mention that the one most prevalent theme on the CD is regretting mistakes, and this would fit in nicely.

    General CommentI'm not much a fan of this genre, but this song and some other Relient K songs are rather good. It seems Matt is basically telling the listener a story, and anyone is able to figure out what he's singing about. It's kind of an "in-your-face" song to his girl's ex-boyfriend.
