"Gadfly" as written by and Brad Kane....
Come away, my low
I don’t want you touching everything
Everyone’s so clean
Everyone but you
I want him standing still
Want him but I know he never will
Hold him down
And in the yard it’s raining down these
Bullets of the damned
And everyone’s explaining
In a voice I’ll understand
And I know by now
Can I but believe you see the sirens in my eyes

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna live
I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna hear I never cared enough to try
Sometimes it’s too fucking dark to see the bright light
Right in front of your eyes
This is my life
And I don’t wanna be another sensitive guy
Not afraid to let you mother fuckers see me cry
‘Cuz I don’t have a thing
If I don’t have a choice
This is my fight

What’s your favorite song?
What if all your memories are wrong?
Do you think you’re free?
Do you want to be?
Everyone is here
All your friends have come to wish you well
Can’t you tell
I can feel their breathing space
It’s sucking up the air
But I cannot feel any feeling
Long enough to care
In another year
No one’ll believe me when I tell ‘em that sometimes

(Chorus)

But I can feel their breathing space
It’s sucking up the air
And I cannot feel any feeling
Long enough to care
In another year
No one’ll believe me when I tell ‘em that sometimes

(Chorus)

    General CommentI have no idea what this song means. I've listened to it over and over again, but I can only come up with this: A relationship gone wrong and feeling of entrapment take place. I also like it how Caleb writes from the other person's perspective (the first few lines).

    General CommentI dont know why -- well I do but its complicated. and I, too, have listened to it over and over but i think its about suicide. I know its an extreme and I could be completely off of what the artist is actually writing about...but...the bright light, the bullets, sucking up the air. i dont know, just one interpretation.
