"Programs" as written by Logan Christian Laflotte, Alex Burton, Jesse Burton, Jeff Widner and Mike Smeen....
Broke and drunk on lemonade; her idea to go away.
When-when they-they arrive dress-dressed in pride,
They'll wash them down in flashing lights.

Weight escapes in stereo, soldiers cracking random codes.
He'll find he's so lost-lost
And in her eyes, won't-won't let-let him compromise.
Dance all night.

Coming just to get along, smiling but the love is gone.
She-she fi-finally gets her balance back,
She-she swear-swears it was an act,
Of all ways it could've gone, cake and white and carry-ons,
She'll put an end to this, this 4-year stand
'cause she can't love a violent man.

Dance all night.
It's in her kiss, you won't admit it.
I know that after this we'll never dance again,
So dance all night.

When I took your hand, did I misunderstand?
The plates began to slip away and matching edges start to scrape.
The floors collapse from underneath and plaster walls evaporate.
The programs run and take away the center of our gravity;
The bonds we made were never meant to break.

    General CommentThis is easily about a girl who left him, and she is not going to give him another chance.

    Amazing song.

    General CommentI wonder if this guy was actually married to the girl that broke it off with him--the "home" imagery at the end sort of seems to be like the collapse of domestic life. Plus, you "take her hand" in marriage. Maybe just engaged--the "cake and white and carry-ons" is a could-have-been statement. Anyway, fabulous song.

    General CommentI don't think he was actually married with her, the cake and white and carry-on line is preceeded by "of all the ways it could've gone", meaning that could've happened if the "4 year stand" hadn't ended. So obviously she did mean a lot to him, but they weren't married.
