"Highs and Lows" as written by and Stacy Jones....
Nobody really knows the pain
But everybody knows your name
You've got their full attention, all eyes on you
Small talk can get you through the day
There's got to be a better way
When all your friends are faceless
You can fake it
He knows the highs and lows
He'll give you what you need
And we all agree it's time to shine
He'll stand and deliver
He goes about his day
Smile and a wink hello
When the picture's gone
Fading to black he's poppin' down prozac
Nobody knows the highs and the lows

Sports cars and fancy souvenirs
That you collected all these years
So proud and self assured, hold your head high
A chest of broken memories
Of how and why and what could be
Still locked inside your closet
You can't fake it

    General CommentWow i think this is one of the best songs on the album, can't believe there is only one comment!

    I think the song is about someone putting on a fake show in public of being happy and successful but in private they are depressed and have some serious issues! They are trying to keep up the pretence but finding it increasingly hard and at the end realise that they just can't and they are ehading for a breakdown.

    Not sure what the weather report in the middle of the song is all about though!

    General Commentthe song is about a weather reporter, thats why "he knows the highs and the lows" (high and low pressure) but is also a play on words about highs and lows of life. and that is why there is a weather report in the middle of the song
