Left uninspired by the crust of railroad earth that touched
the lead to the pages of your manuscript.
I took my thumb off the concrete and saved up all my
strength to hammer pillars for a picket fence.
It wasn't quite what is seemed: a lack of pleasantries
(my able body isn't what it used to be)
I must admit I was charmed by your advances:
your advantage left me helplessly into you.

Talking how the group had begun to splinter and I could
taste your lipstick on the filter...

I tried my best to keep my distance form your dress
but call-response overturns convictions every time.
My memory cannot recall: a wave of alcohol we shared
a cigarette and shaved the hours off.

Lushing with hallway congregation, my best judgment
signed its resignation

I rushed this. We moved too fast, trips into
the guestroom.

    Actually no, it's called "we have the facts and we're voting yes" , it's named title track on the album because the album name became the song's name.

    General CommentI think this song is about young love that was rushed into because it was based on attraction, drunken feelings without a filter and wanting the approval of someone you admire. But in the end, he realized that it wasn't genuine enough to last.
