"Black Sheep Boy (Black Sheep Boy Appendix)" as written by and Tim Hardin....
Here I am back home again
I'm here to rest
All they ask is where I've been
Knowing I've been West

I'm the family's unowned boy
Golden curls of envied hair
Pretty girls with faces fair
See the shine in the Black Sheep Boy

If you love me, let me live in peace
Please understand
That the black sheep can wear the golden fleece
And hold a winning hand

I'm the family's unowned boy
Golden curls of envied hair
Pretty girls with faces fair
See the shine in the Black Sheep Boy

I'm the family's unowned boy
Golden curls of envied hair
Pretty girls with faces fair
See the shine in the Black Sheep Boy

    General CommentThis song is so...just so good and ethereal and frosty and blue and sweeping and slender. I'm so glad I picked up this EP, it's beyond fabulous. I don't really know what this could mean, but Will paints such a rich and dark story with offhanded phrases...it's a lonely and tragic picture of self-hatred and lost love. Chilling.

    General CommentI think its about a guy that is trying hard to forget the memories of the relationship, but everything keeps reminding him of it and he can't seem to escape, found in "I found a hotel room where I tried to escape you."
    The "mirror" represents his memory of her and it also represents his former self being in the relationship. His is cracked because he can't get past the relationship and he wants her to feel the same way and "smash your mirror".

    General CommentI identify with this song a lot. I often take drives when i feel depressed and sleep in the backseat of my car in rest stops along the freeway. And yeah, I have a beat up '66 mustang too.

    General Comment"And I rode into Baltimore and I found a hotel room
    where I tried to escape you, but the phone line wouldn't go through"

    this part's so heart-wrenching. trying to escape that threatening darkness inside, by calling up loved ones, but the phone is never picked up. mannnn
