"The Battle Of The Boy Least Likely To" as written by and Peter Hobbs Jonthan Owen....
Warm milk and honey
Sweeten my teeth.
From little acorns you..
You quietly made me..
Made me into me.

Paper thin skin stretched
Over my bones.
From shells and pebbles you..
You quietly made me..?
Made me a home.

But I can't get used
To being alone.
And I won't get used
To being alone.

Under a full moon,
Hopelessly trying to
Retrace our footsteps in the snow.
I don't know when to hang on
And when to let go.

Foxes in boxes,
And butterfly blues.
From little acorns you..
You quietly made me..
Made me into you.

Holding it under
My tongue 'til it stings.
From all of my demons
You quietly saved me
Again and again.

But now I feel
And surface again.
Yes, I can feel
And surface again.

From little bubbles,
Little air bubbles,
Little embolysms grow.
I don't know to hang on.
Everything I feel feels wrong.
I don't know when to hang on
And when to let go.

    General Commentthe correct lyrics are 'holding it under my tongue `til it stings,' and "from little bubbles, little air bubbles, little embolisms grow.'

    General CommentI think this song is about someone he used to be in a relationship with but isn't anymore, and how it kind of spoiled him by showing him how good it could be. And now nobody he meets can match up to her, so he feels like he won't find it again.

    General CommentThis is a really sad song. One of the few that matches the music on this album. Yet, it's still amazingly great. This really was the best album of 2005.

    General CommentI heard this song live the other night and it was so beautiful I wanted to cry.

    We meet these people who transform our lives and ourselves, but then we have to let go of them even though we want to hang on.

    The line I don't get is "You quietly made me/ Made me into YOU". It doesn't sound like a positive thing.
