Get me home again, get me home again.
Start to search for a good friend. You know
And I know, and I know
There will be those ups and downs no matter where we go.

With my mind and sight blurred within
All those miles.
I'll get home again, home again,
Feeling lost and alone in these walls I know.

Break the bottle, I still won't find you in the bottom
Or anywhere around here.
Break the habit because self destruction is oh so romantic.
So says everyone around here.

But I know we'll be okay one of these fuckin days.
But I know, and I know,
There will be those up and downs no matter where we go.

So no matter where we go,
Our hearts will always follow.

    General CommentThis song is about friends moving away from eachother. It lets you know that distance and other problems mean nothing when it comes to friendship. There will be ups and downs with everything you do.

    General CommentI'm not sure, but I always interpreted the lines about breaking the bottle and breaking the habit pretty literally. As in break the bottle (stop drinking) because it won't help the situation, and to break self destructive habits. No?

    General CommentI think it's pretty clearly about rejecting the romanticization of self-loathing and self-destruction that predominated the scene at the time; specifically, Latterman positions themselves pretty firmly opposite of the reigning emo scene of the mid-00s.

    I think

    "Get me home again, get me home again.
    Start to search for a good friend"

    and

    "Break the bottle, I still won't find you in the bottom
    Or anywhere around here"

    have some interesting continuity between them, and flow well into the sarcasm of the next line.

    Excellent song.
