"Goods" as written by Kori Gardner Hammel and Jason Edward Hammel....
This is the story with the fantastic lies
Or some facts to help us minimalize
As for this shelter I can plainly deny
But you can't kill time without injuring us

And we'll count up all the goods now

This is the girl with such fantastic eyes
Such brute creation to but lay up beside
Should cut our nails and wash up our feet
And enjoy the tedium that's yet been untried by me

And we'll count up all the goods now
There are more than you ever thought you'd own

Lift up your fingers and let's untie the string
Let's knot them all to see what this monster brings
'Cause it's real soothing with its tail in its knees
'Cause you can cry once without harrowing thus

And we'll count up all the goods now
Don't you know that they've come to be your host?

Didn't mean to skank your art
Should've never hung around us (dear)
Didn't want your money, oh baby now

When it lasted all day, we would blast it all day
We would bring it on and on

It's all in your head

    General CommentOkay, since I can't stand when lyrics are posted one huge paragraph:


    This is the story with the fantastic lies

    General CommentTo me it seems like it is a guy who is in love with this girl, a girl he is friends with. He has shared some good times with her that he wants her to remember (we'll count up all the goods now), unfortunately, this girl already has a guy, and a bad one at that (This is the girl with such fantastic eyes,
    Such brute creation to but lay up beside) I can't tell what's going on near the end, seems to me like he's playing out the scene of him telling her his love and getting rejected... all in his head.

    General Commentseriously: does anyone else find it annoying that everyone defaults to " this song is about a guy who is in love with this girl"? or maybe it's about how it's about "telling her his love and getting rejected"?

    sometimes you need to just listen for tone and mood and melody and NOT try to bend every song you hear into some moronic pop-song. there are enough of those already

    General CommentI love this song, sounds awesome, the meaning is super confusing though. It just sounds like two people recounting memories as they divide up their things, and almost get back together, but then reality sets in.
