On the phone
Its handle’s hot from messages you left
Asking us
To question all the moments we spent
Breaking bones
And teaching every melody to cry
Maybe it’s too late to run

Chorus:
Keep it all
You’re loosing out
So take a photograph to capture every scene
What this is
And what could have been
Never seem to justify the means until the end

We need to vent
To keep ourselves from loosing our face
Heaven sent
To burn the absent minded from this place
Suck a stone
And fill the ground with desperate alibis
Scared to fall
And fade away

Chorus

Leave a message
I’m not here to answer
If you need to reach me
Then just take a number
Leave a message
I’m not here to answer
If you need to reach me
Then just take a number

Chorus (2x)

Keep it all (Leave a message)
You’re loosing out (I’m not here to answer)
So take a photograph (If you need to reach me)
To capture every scene (Then just take a number)
What this is (Leave a message)
And what could have been (I’m not here to answer)
Never seem to justify (If you need to reach me)
The means until the end (Then just take a number)

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship taken for granted by the other person. Pretty much, the message being portrayed (as interpreted by me) is he's sick of dealing with the shit in the relationship, and he's done with it. Now he's telling her she can look at what she's losing because of her behavior... and he's not going to be around anymore for her to treat like shit.

    **EDIT: "And fill the ground with desperate I'LL ADVISE" I think that's supposed to be desperate ALIBIS
