"Exes" as written by and Graeme Ross Campbell Charles Wishart Austin....
She had exes on her eyes
She was only good for one thing
It was over before it started, sooner than some think
She had a nose for trouble and all things illegal
She came with heavy baggage and a stupid ass beagle
Man, I hated that dog
It would shit in the kitchen and howl at the moon
Always scratching and itching
Queen of the plastic bag forked tongue and 80's retro
Everything from new wave, metal and electro
Creature of the night, of habit and of the tanning booth
Dedicated, crippled and heavily medicated
New pair of shoes to wear out and walk a mile
She got what she wanted and cried like a crocodile
She liked to mix it up, but couldn't cook to save her soul
Every year when Santa Claus came, he only gave her coal
Blatantly obvious, I read her like a book of matches
Maybe she's crazy, but I'm the one who took the chances

And what does that say about me
In the wrong place with a long face
What does that say about me
I just don't know
Without sunshine and rain the grass won't grow
But what does that say about me
Couple bandages and knuckle sandwiches
What does that say about me? I just don't know
Without sunshine and rain the grass won't grow

The thorn in my side was also my addiction
She spelled it out backwards and blinded me with science fiction
Porcelain doll, she let herself go to pieces
Kept it in bottles for too long with no releases
The outcome was volcanic
Disgusting and wonderful, messy, confusing
Exciting and depressing
The whole entire time I had my foot on the accelerator
I saw it all happen like watching numbers on the elevator

But what does that say about me?
In the wrong place with a long face
What does that ay about me?
I just don't know
Without sunshine and rain the grass won't grow
But what does that say about me
Couple bandages and knuckle sandwiches
What does that say about me? I just don't know
Without sunshine and rain the grass won't grow

    Song MeaningI think this song is about being in a relationship with a troubled person, and getting to a point of wondering why they would be attracted to and enter a relationship with that troubled person. A good question to ask, but a lot of people will spend their time pointing fingers and blaming without considering their own role in the dysfunction.
