"Buffalo Seven" as written by and Matthew Good....
A hand off the heart
One on the wolf until your lambs itch
Life lives in the dark
But you joke and you kid about the light switch

Lay down no talking
Stand up start walking
You run and you run and there's no time to think
No time to breathe
No time at all
Just the buffalo seven

A hand on the heart
One on the wolf until your lambs bleed
Life live in the dark
But you joke and you kid about the light in me

Lay down no talking
Stand up start walking
You run and you run and there's no time to think
No time to breathe
No time at all
Just the buffalo seven

    General CommentTo be the first "song meaning" explanation here, I want to make sure it is stated that this song is NOT about the Lackawanna Six [sleeper cell]--It is actually about a painting that was in Matt Good's apartment when he bought it and was always there. It has nothing to do with any sleeper terrorist cells in Buffalo.

    To find out the whole story, feel free to visit the following website: nearfantastica.com/bored/…

    General Commentwell, okay, i didn't read anything about this song, but how i take it, the whole hand on/off the heart is about patriotism and like, love for your country. the whole things with lambs and wolves is like, the gov being a wolf treating us like lambs. life lives in the dark is very true, and therefore the thing about light switches is sort of like the solution to the life in the dark. like, if u turned on the lights and all. but the whole joking and kidding thing is like saying that there is no light switch and so life is always going to be in the dark. and the thing about lying down and no talking and that whole thing i think is just about fighting. u don't think u just act because that's what the gov is making u do. and the time refrences at the end is like, our country and world is falling apart and there's really no time left for it to be saved, which also has to do with the mindless action with the laying down and stuff.

    but that's just me...i don't really get what buffalo seven is supposed to symbolize.
