I remember every bridge I've ever jumped off blindly
And all my boring stories keep reminding me

'Cause in all honesty I used to be
An authority on agony
And remembering my broken dreams
And everything that used to be around

And it's not so complicated
To explain why these feelings faded

Please pass some sanity
Saints of mediocrity
And keep me out of my sobriety
14 and 23
Bridge and tunnel authority
Will keep me out of my sobriety

I say we just celebrate
And all my past mistakes
And all my "a little too late"s

And did I forget to mention
That I've lost all my best intentions

Please pass some sanity
Saints of mediocrity
And keep me out of my sobriety
14 and 23
Bridge and tunnel authority
Will keep me out of my sobriety

    General CommentThis one is about someone remembering all the bad things that have happened to them, and the bad things they do now.

    General CommentI feel that this is the best song on B is for B-sides, closely followed by "last rites to sleepless nights." I agree with knuxman in that it is about reminissing about all the past mistakes that have been made. No doubt everyone can relate to it in some way.

    General CommentI agree its about past mistakes mostly. As for 14 and 23, it could be the ages where he remembers all the things he did, from age 14 to age 23.

    General Commenti think the 14 and 23 could be ages when big things that could be mistakes happened in his life, like he could think that music was a mistake in life choices? i know vinnie writes the music but roger wants to be like a vet or is a vet or something like that, and maybe he realized this at age 23? dont get me wrong im glad that hes in music, in fact im going to see them for the second time on march 4. but ya.

    Song MeaningI am relavitiy sure this song is about a particular drug mix that he obtained from the streets/ave of 14/23. I don't think It has anything to do with age at all.

    Song MeaningHe could be referring to a 14/23 SJ "bridge" used for "synthesizing" many different drugs. Check this out:
