Believe it or not the notes are tying to talk to me
I've got to applaud such valiant efforts
It's not always the party that it seems to be
It can be a complete debacle
This is not the most routine 9-5 you see
These are some occupational hazards

Perhaps you'll try to save my spot?
Just until the album drops
Then I'll be a the Capri shop
Adjacent to the graham L stop

Believe it or not we're not the ideal guys to date
So I guess I'm a risky decision
But you did not write me off, you knew that I could change
So I'm studying my guide to safety

It's so hard to tell if this is an artistic achievement
Or am I singing from obligation
When all I want is to feel my heart rate
Accelerate, and we accelerate

    General CommentWith the first verse, I think he is talking about being a musician and an artist in these day and times.

    The second and third verse Im not too sure how to interpret that into my assumption of what this song means.

    And the final verse compliments the first verse. He cant decide if what hes writing is something amazing, and unique and special to him or just what everyone wants to hear. And the only reason he does what he does is because he enjoys it.

    General CommentCompare these lyrics to ANYTHING from Too Bad You're Beautiful. Such a huge difference. And not in a good way, either. :/

    General CommentI agree with ahopelessromantic in all area's i think the song is also about the hardship between bandmates or if its worth moving on.

    General Commentpersonally i think this song has to do with the other singer who was eventually kicked out and how he didnt want to contribute to the album until it was time to tour and such.
